On Helping and Stacks

Abstract : A concurrent algorithm exhibits helping when one process performs work on behalf of other processes. More formally, helping is observed when the order of some operation in a linearization is fixed by a step of another process. In this paper, we show that no wait-free linearizable implementation of a stack using read, write, compare&swap and fetch&add operations can be help-free, correcting a mistake in an earlier proof by Censor-Hillel et al.
