    Work stealing is an effective load-balancing strategy for multithreading, but when computations based on it underperform, traditional tools can't explain why. To resolve a computation's key performance obstacles, tools must pinpoint and quantify parallel idleness and overhead. View full abstract»

    In the multicore era, concurrency bugs threaten to reduce programmer productivity, impair software safety, and erode end-user value. Control engineering can eliminate concurrency bugs by constraining software behavior, preventing runtime failures, and offloading onerous burdens from human programmers onto automatically synthesized control logic.
