This paper presents a new non-blocking skip list algorithm. The algorithm alleviates contention by localizing synchronization at the least contended part of the structure without altering consistency of the implemented abstraction. The key idea lies in decoupling a modification to the structure into two stages: an eager abstract modification that returns quickly and whose update affects only the bottom of the structure, and a lazy selective adaptation updating potentially the entire structure… CONTINUE READING
