The book computint up-to-date results in a precise, andd detailed, yet accessible manner. Welch No preview available – The relationships between the various models are demonstrated by simulations showing that algorithms designed for one model can be run in another model.

To make this notoriously difficult subject accessible, ‘Distributed Computing; Fundamentals, Simulations, and Advanced Topics; Second Edition’, provides a solid introduction to the mathematical foundations and theory of distributed computing, highlighting common themes and basic techniques.

This approach exposes the inherent similarities in solutions to seemingly diverse problems. Sinceshe has taught in the Department of Computer Science at the Technion, Haifa—Israel’s leading technological university.

The explosive growth of distributed systems makes it imperative to understand how to overcome these difficulties. The book covers a variety of problem domains atitya the models, including: Account Options Sign in. Garg Limited preview – You are currently using the site but have requested a page in the site. No eBook available Wiley. It presents several recent developments, including fast mutual exclusion algorithms, distributed shared memory, the wait-free hierarchy, and sparse network covers.

It introduces the reader to the fundamental issues underlying the design of distributed systems—communication, coordination, synchronization and uncertainty—and to the fundamental algorithmic distrlbuted and lower bound techniques.

The major models of distributed computing are covered, varying by the mode of communication message passing and shared memoryby the synchrony assumptions synchronous, asynchronous and clockedand by the failure type crash amd Byzantine.

The book highlights techniques and results that are applicable in several places throughout the text.
