Reliable Broadcast is a mechanism by which a processor in a distributed system disseminates a value to all other processors in the presence of both communication and processor failures. Protocols to achieve Reliable Broadcast are at the heart of most fault-tolerant applications. We characterize...
In this paper we present a sound and complete semantics for the monitor concept of C.A.R. Hoare. First a method for specification of monitors, introduced by O.-J. Dahl, is reviewed. This method is based on the relation between the historic sequence of monitor procedure calls and the historic...
Most distributed systems proposed on the basis of the concept of atomic action or transaction strongly limit parallelism, thus reducing their level of efficiency. In this paper, features of efficiency in a distributed transaction system are investigated.
This paper presents exhaustive analysis and simulation for distributed systems validation. Exhaustive analysis makes possible to detect quickly several types of errors, for instance, unspecified reception of signals, errors in timer management, deadlock, errors in precedence, etc. But, in...
The relations among various languages and models for distributed computation and various possible definitions of fairness are considered. Natural semantic criteria are presented which an acceptable notion of fairness should satisfy. These are then used to demonstrate differences among the basic...
