A memory model is some description of how memory behaves in a parallel computer s ystem. While there is consensus that sequential consistency [Lamport 1979] is the str onge t memory model, nobody seems to have tried to identify the weakest memory model. This thesis concerns itself with precisely this problem. We cannot hope to identify the weakest memory model unless we specify a minimal s et of properties we want it to obey. In this thesis, we identify five such propertie s: completeness… CONTINUE READING
