CS 3204 Operating Systems Homework 4: Concurrency Last modified: 12/12/2005 10:10 AM 1 Prepare your answers to the following questions either in a plain text file or in a Microsoft Word file. Answer each question clearly and concisely, and state conclusions using complete sentences. Explanatory tables and/or diagrams are acceptable, but there must always be a written discussion as well. Submit your file to the Curator system by the posted deadline for this assignment. No late submissions will be accepted. 1. [20 points] Consider the following proposed solution to the infinite-buffer producer-consumer problem (taken from Stallings and the notes on concurrency): According to Stallings, this solution is incorrect because it is possible for the producer and consumer to reach a deadlocked state. Demonstrate that deadlock is possible by creating a hypothetical trace (as shown on slides 21-22 of the concurrency notes) that results in deadlock.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
