Book description

Distributed algorithms have been the subject of intense development over the last twenty years. The second edition of this successful textbook provides an up-to-date introduction both to the topic, and to the theory behind the algorithms. The clear presentation makes the book suitable for advanced undergraduate or graduate courses, whilst the coverage is sufficiently deep to make it useful for practising engineers and researchers. The author concentrates on algorithms for the point-to-point message passing model, and includes algorithms for the implementation of computer communication networks. Other key areas discussed are algorithms for the control of distributed applications (wave, broadcast, election, termination detection, randomized algorithms for anonymous networks, snapshots, deadlock detection, synchronous systems), and fault-tolerance achievable by distributed algorithms. The two new chapters on sense of direction and failure detectors are state-of-the-art and will provide an entry to research in these still-developing topics.

Reviews

"...an excellent overview of available techniques." Computing Reviews

"The book provides an up-to-date introduction to both distributed algorithms, and to the theory behind these algorithms. The clear presentation makes the book suitable for advanced undergraduate or graduate courses, while the coverage is sufficiently deep to make it useful for practising engineers and researchers." Mathematical Reviews

"Provides a very decent interesting to significant topics of the theory of Distributed Computing, and it is especially suitable as both a reference book and a textbook." SIGACT News

"...a nice textbook...I recommend this book for readers who are interested in a theoretical view of distributed control algorithms." IEEE Parallel & Distributed Technology
