Distributed Computing (book)

The authors give a mathematically sophisticated analysis of various modes of distributed computing. This book should be used between intermediate to an advanced course of Distributed Computing area. It presents several recent developments, including fast mutual exclusion algorithms, distributed shared memory, the wait-free hierarchy, and sparse network covers.

More difficult results are typically presented as a series of increasingly complex solutions. Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1.
