Title:Causal Dataflow Analysis for Concurrent Programs
Author(s):Farzan, Azadeh; Madhusudan, P.
Subject(s):dataflow analysis
computer science
Abstract:We define a novel formulation of dataflow analysis for concurrent programs, where the flow of facts is along the causal dependencies of events. We capture the control flow of concurrent programs using a Petri net (called the control net), develop algorithms based on partially-ordered unfoldings, and report experimental results for solving causal dataflow analysis problems. For the subclass of distributive problems, we prove that complexity of checking data flow is linear in the number of facts and in the unfolding of the control net.
