Reasoning about a distributed algorithm is simplified if we can ignore the time needed to send and deliver messages and can instead pretend that a process sends a collection of messages as a single atomic action, with the messages delivered instantaneously as part of the action. A theorem is...
A distributed system can support fault-tolerant applications by replicating data and computation at nodes that have independent failure modes. We present a scheme called parallel execution threads (PET) which can be used to implement fault-tolerant computations in an object-based distributed...
A modification is proposed to Peterson's construction of 1-writern-reader multivalued atomic shared variableusingn+2 multivalued safe variables and some boolean atomic variables. The resulting construction is elegant and is simpler than the original one.
Animportant problem in the construction of fault-tolerant distributed database systems is the design of nonblocking transaction commit protocols. This problem has been extensively studied for synchronous systems (i.e., systems where no messages ever arrive late). In this paper, the synchrony...
