Product Overview

An Introduction to Distributed Algorithms takes up some of the mainconcepts and algorithms, ranging from basic to advanced techniques and applications, that underlie the programming of distributed-memory systems such as computernetworks, networks of workstations, and multiprocessors. Written from the broadperspective of distributed-memory systems in general it includes topics such asalgorithms for maximum flow, program debugging, and simulation that do not appear inmore orthodox texts on distributed algorithms.Moving from fundamentals to advancesand applications, ten chapters -- with exercises and bibliographic notes -- cover avariety of topics. These include models of distributed computation, informationpropagation, leader election, distributed snapshots, network synchronization, self-stability, termination detection, deadlock detection, graph algorithms, mutualexclusion, program debugging, and simulation.All of the algorithms are presented ina clear, template- based format for the description of message-passing computationsamong the nodes of a connected graph. Such a generic setting allows the treatment ofproblems originating from many different application areas.The main ideas andalgorithms are described in a way that balances intuition and formal rigor -- mostare preceded by a general intuitive discussion and followed by formal statements asto correctness complexity or other properties. *Author: Barbosa, Valmir C. *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 392 *Publication Date: 2003/01/01 *Age Level: 18 - UP *Language: English *Dimensions: 5.98 x 9.01 x 0.78 inches
