Abstract:

A mathematical model of a computer system for multi-user data base management is presented. Rules of cooperation, a scheduling strategy, and a safety algorithm are shown to provide harmonious cooperation among processes while preventing conflict, deadlock, and permanent blocking. Throughout the development, the discussion is related to a set of COBOL programs operating on a collection of COBOL files.
