Starvation (computer science)

Charles Babbage, sometimes referred to as the "father of computing".

In computer science, resource starvation is a problem encountered in concurrent computing where a process is perpetually denied necessary resources to process its work.

UML notation for a class. This Button class has variables for data, and functions. Through inheritance a subclass can be created as subset of the Button class. Objects are instances of a class.

In this pattern, a resource is held by an object, and released by calling a conventional method – usually called, , , depending on the language – which releases any resources the object is holding onto.

It is based on the idea of making statements about resources (in particular web resources) in expressions of the form subject – predicate – object, known as triples.

Load balancing algorithm depending on divisibility of tasks
Master-Worker and bottleneck

In computing, load balancing refers to the process of distributing a set of tasks over a set of resources (computing units), with the aim of making their overall processing more efficient.

While most aspects of computer security involve digital measures such as electronic passwords and encryption, physical security measures such as metal locks are still used to prevent unauthorized tampering.

Access-control list

While most aspects of computer security involve digital measures such as electronic passwords and encryption, physical security measures such as metal locks are still used to prevent unauthorized tampering.

In computer security, an access-control list (ACL) is a list of permissions associated with a system resource (object).

Asymptotically optimal algorithm

Algorithm is said to be asymptotically optimal if, roughly speaking, for large inputs it performs at worst a constant factor worse than the best possible algorithm.

Non-blocking algorithm

Algorithm is called non-blocking if failure or suspension of any thread cannot cause failure or suspension of another thread; for some operations, these algorithms provide a useful alternative to traditional blocking implementations.

Release: The release activity follows from the completed development process and is sometimes classified as part of the development process rather than deployment process. It includes all the operations to prepare a system for assembly and transfer to the computer system(s) on which it will be run in production. Therefore, it sometimes involves determining the resources required for the system to operate with tolerable performance and planning and/or documenting subsequent activities of the deployment process.
