Reading material and lecture notes.

The lecture notes for week 13 on transactions are here: week13.pdf; reading for networked and distributed transactions is available in a PDF File, but viewing it requires a password (and even then, it appears not to work on all browsers). If you'd like to get the password, either ask in class or send an email.

  2. Optimistic concurrency control (section 13.4.3, pages 530-531)
  3. Following page 536, you can skip the rest of the chapter (we'll cover the beginning of the edge-chasing algorithm, but not cover it completely).
