This implementation is based on a publication by Gal Milman, Alex Kogan, Yossi Lev, Victor Luchangco, and Erez Petrank in 2018.  Titled BQ: A Lock-Free Queue with Batching, they describe the data structures functionality and correctness, along with the previous work it is based on.  All implementation details are from this paper unless otherwise stated. In this series of papers, we will be reimplementing and performance testing their data structure. This first paper covers an initial implementation involving no concurrency, using an MR Lock  to restrict threads access to the data structure. This ensures correctness as the operations on the queue are guaranteed to be mutually exclusive.
