Few transactional memory implementations allow for condition synchronization among transactions. The problems are many, most notably the lack of consensus about a single appropriate linguistic construct, and the lack of mechanisms that are compatible with hardware transactional memory. In this thesis, we introduce a broadly useful mechanism for supporting condition synchronization among transactions. Our mechanism supports a number of linguistic constructs for coordinating transactions, and does so without introducing overhead on in-flight hardware transactions. Experiments show that our mechanisms work well, and that the diversity of linguistic constructs allows programmers to chose the technique that is best suited to a particular application.
