Title: A New Characterization of Distrlbuted Deadlock in Database
Authors: Ouri Wolfson
Abstract: The problem of distributed transactions deadlock is analyzed from a new point of view. Consequently we are able to obtain three results. The first is a sufficient condition for deadlock freedom of transactions. The second establishes how many syntactically identical transactions must be analyzed to determine their freedom from deadlock. The third extends the Havender scheme ([3]) for deadlock, prevention (locking entities in a fixed order) to the distributed case.
