Programming with Posix Threads
Very good book describing many multithreaded concepts, principles of work and common pitfalls. Parts of the pthread model are elegant, and it’s good to see why they were designed the way they were. Waking condition variable waiters 3. Many-to-few two level 6.
Programming with POSIX ® Threads
Invariants, critical programmong, and predicates 3. Faulty assumptions about memory visibility that happened to be true for single core machines are often demonstrably false for multicore and multiprocessor machines, so the dangers of deadlock, livelock and race conditions are ever more present. You then move to more advanced topics such as attributes objects, thread-specific data, and realtime scheduling.
Modifying libraries to be thread-safe 7.
