Abstract

In both database transaction management and parallel programming, parallel execution of operations is one of the most essential features. Although they look quite different, we will show that many important similarities exist. As a result of a more careful comparison we will be able to point out that recent progress in database transaction management theory in the field of composite stack schedules can improve the degree of parallelism in databases as well as in parallel programming. We will use an example from numerical algorithms and will demonstrate that in principle more parallelism can be achieved.
