An Introduction to Distributed Algorithms
Valmir C. BarbosaISBN: 0262024128; 9780262024129;
"Barbosa makes the otherwise difficult subject of distributed algorithms very enjoyable and attractive to both students and researchers. The leading intuitive discussion of each algorithm is so very well organized and clearly written that a reader can, without the slightest effort, have a clear picture of it. An ideal textbook for an one-semester distributed algorithms course." -- Mamoru Maekawa, Professor, Graduate School of Information Systems, University of Electro-Communications, Tokyo "The strength of this book is its focus on practical problems in distributed computing. The book is very accessible---I would use it teaching a senior level course on distributed algorithms." -- David Nicol, Department of Computer Science, Dartmouth College An Introduction to Distributed Algorithms takes up some of the main concepts and algorithms, ranging from basic to advanced techniques and applications, that underlie the programming of distributed-memory systems such as computer...
