Black-White Bakery Algorithm
Definition - What does Black-White Bakery Algorithm mean?
The black-white bakery algorithm is an enhancement to Lamport’s bakery algorithm that satisfies all the conditions of a mutual exclusive algorithm. This algorithm preserves the original Lamport algorithm while using a finite number of atomic registers of bounded size and satisfies FIFO fairness. It is also adaptive and satisfies local spinning. The black-white bakery algorithm is designed to provide a software based solution to mutual exclusion.
