Accesses to shared memory on modern computers often may cause unexpected effects. Threads running on a multi-core processor may, for instance, perceive different content in shared memory at the same point in time. On conventional parallel computers, it is at least possible to combine the different views of threads to a conceptional view that is consistent (sequential consistency). The guarantees that hold for modern multi-core processors are weaker than sequential consistency. So called weak memory models capture such weaker guarantees. In the seminar, multiple weak memory models shall be analyzed, be discussed and be evaluated in comparison.
