## Dining Philosopher?s Problem (Dijkstra ?71) Project 2 Starts Today CS 603 Dining Philosopher?s Problem

Calvin College, US has reference to this Academic Journal, CS 603 Dining Philosopher?s Problem February 15, 2002 Project 2 Starts Today The winner: NTP Client Basic: Program that accepts NTP server as argument, gets in addition to returns time from that server Three points in consideration of well document in addition to tested solution Extras (worth one additional point): Fault Tolerant averaging solution: Accepts up so that four servers in addition to gives average after throwing away ?bad? servers Class library: Initialize sets offset from local clock, ?get time? returns local + offset without sending message Dining Philosopher?s Problem (Dijkstra ?71)

Dining Philosophers: Solutions Simple: ?waiting? state Enter waiting state when neighbors eating When neighbors done, get forks Neighbors can?t enter waiting state if neighbor waiting Problem: Doesn?t prevent starvation Requires checking both neighbors at once Race condition Fully Distributed Solution (Lehman in addition to Rabin ?81) Problem alongside previous solutions Not truly distributed: Requires some sort of central coordination or global state Non-Symmetric: Different philosophers run different algorithms Additional properties: Deadlock free: Eventually someone new gets so that eat Lockout free: Eventually every hungry philosopher gets so that eat Adversary: One philosopher may try so that starve another Can?t just hold the fork indefinitely Communication only between adjacent philosophers No global state Can?t communicate alongside both at same time No Deterministic Solution Proof: Assume solution in consideration of philosophers 1.n Philosophers don?t know their number! Philosophers ?activated? in order from 1.n Each takes one step Claim: If symmetric at beginning of round, will be symmetric at end of round If anyone eating, all would be!

Probabilistic Solution Assume Random ?coin toss? Guaranteed alongside probability 1 so that break symmetry Idea: Try so that get one first Then get other If can?t get other, put first down in addition to try again But don?t go in consideration of the same fork first every time Think trying = true or die While trying s = random(left,right) Wait in consideration of fork s then take it If fork ~s available take it else drop fork s Eat drop s=random(left,right) drop fork ~s Lemmas: Assume Plato sitting so that left of Aristotle If Plato picks up fork infinite number of times, Aristotle finite number, then P(Plato eats infinite number of times)=1 If deadlocked, every philosopher picks up fork infinite number of times alongside probability 1 If after t steps, both trying so that eat, tried so that get same fork. Then alongside probability ? «, One picks up fork only finite number of times in future, or One gets so that eat in next two draws If at time t the last set of random draws is A, then alongside probability 1 there is a later configuration B ? A where two neighbors try so that get the same fork first Theorem: P(Deadlock) = 0 Assume P(Deadlock) > 0 By Lemma 2, if deadlocked everyone performs infinite draws By Lemma 4, alongside probability 1 there will be infinite sequence of configuration of last draws A0, A1, ? satisfying condition of Lemma 3 By Lemma 3, ?n some philosopher eats between An in addition to An+2 alongside probability 1 Therefore if deadlocked, non-deadlocked condition will occur alongside probability 1

Problem: Not Lockout-free Courteous Philosophers Possible in consideration of all but one so that starve Solution: If eating in addition to neighbor trying so that eat, once done wait until neighbor has eaten before trying again Requires more shared variables ?signal? so that neighbor: On/Off Share ?last? alongside neighbor: Left, Neutral, Right Initialized so that Neutral Only need mutual exclusion alongside one neighbor at a time Think trying = true; left_signal = right_signal = on s = random(left,right) Wait until s down in addition to (s-neighbor-signal = off or s-last = neutral or s-last = s) then lift fork s If ~s down then lift ~s; trying = false else drop s Eat left-signal = right-signal = off left-last = right; right-last = left Drop forks Lesson: Non-Determinism Gives Additional Power In fully distributed system, random variable solves problems that can?t otherwise be solved Used in practice Ethernet: Random backoff if collision Makes proving correctness harder Consider such solutions when building distributed systems!
