James R. Goodman
James Richard "Jim" Goodman (born July 16, 1944) is a professor of computer science at the University of Auckland in Auckland, New Zealand, and emeritus professor at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
Education and research
Goodman's research is focused mainly on computer architecture: the hardware/software interface. His current interests are primarily focused on support for Transactional Memory. Goodman's seminal 1983 paper, "Using cache memory to reduce processor-memory traffic", was the first to describe snooping cache coherence protocols and to identify the phenomenon of cache being able to conserve the memory bandwidth.
Goodman is the author of "A Programmer's View of Computer Architecture", a highly acclaimed book on computer architecture, and co-authored with Andrew Tanenbaum a book on Computer Organization. In 2007, he was named a Fellow of the IEEE "for contributions to shared-memory multiprocessor system design". In 2010, he was named a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery "for contributions to parallel processor and memory system design." In 2013, he received the Eckert–Mauchly Award for "breakthroughs in architecture of shared-memory multiprocessors".
