A Survey of Methods for Detecting Race Conditions
This is a litterature survey done for a final project in
Analysis of Software Artifacts. In it I compare type systems, dynamic
analysis, model-checking, and flow-based analysis as methods for detecting
race conditions in programs. It may be of some minor interest to anyone
who needs background in this area.
