Theory Meets Practice in the Algorand Blockchain (Invited Talk)

Authors: Victor Luchangco

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 253, 26th International Conference on Principles of Distributed Systems (OPODIS 2022)


Abstract
Robust and effective distributed systems require good theory and good engineering, not separately but in concert: user requirements and system constraints are not merely implementation details but often must inform the design of algorithms for such systems. Blockchains are an excellent example. The heart of a blockchain is its (Byzantine) consensus protocol, and consensus protocols have been extensively studied in the theory community for decades. But traditional consensus protocols are not directly applicable to blockchains, which have, or hope to have, millions of participants. Furthermore, public blockchains, which allow anyone to participate, must have some mechanism to guarantee the security of the protocol, and traditional fault models do not adequately capture the assumptions of such mechanisms. In this talk, I will discuss these and other ways in which theory and practice meet in the context of the Algorand blockchain, and how Algorand is able to achieve high transaction throughput with low latency.

Extending Transactional Memory with Atomic Deferral

Authors: Tingzhe Zhou, Victor Luchangco, and Michael Spear

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 95, 21st International Conference on Principles of Distributed Systems (OPODIS 2017)


Abstract
This paper introduces atomic deferral, an extension to TM that allows programmers to move long-running or irrevocable operations out of a transaction while maintaining serializability: the transaction and its de- ferred operation appear to execute atomically from the perspective of other transactions. Thus, program- mers can adapt lock-based programs to exploit TM with relatively little effort and without sacrificing scalability by atomically deferring the problematic operations. We demonstrate this with several use cases for atomic deferral, as well as an in-depth analysis of its use on the PARSEC dedup benchmark, where we show that atomic deferral enables TM to be competitive with well-designed lock-based code.
