A Transparent Thread and Fiber Framework in C++CSP

Conference Proceeding
Chalmers, K. (2018)
A Transparent Thread and Fiber Framework in C++CSP
There are multiple low-level concurrency primitives supported today, but these often require the programmer to be explicit in their implementation decisions at design time. Th...

Building a C++CSP Channel Using C++ Atomics

Conference Proceeding
Chalmers, K. (2019)
Building a C++CSP Channel Using C++ Atomics. https://doi.org/10.3233/978-1-61499-949-2-19
