Proceedings of the 18th IEEE Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems: October 19-22, 1999, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPF), Lausanne, Switzerland

Front Cover
Papers from an October 1999 symposium present the latest research on facets of reliable distributed systems, including mobile computing, distributed algorithms, formal methods, replication techniques, scalability, failure analysis, system support, logging and checkpointing, and CORBA systems. Novel techniques are proposed, design paradigms are explored, and critical validation issues are addressed. Specific topics include diffusing updates in a Byzantine environment, optimistic recovery in multi-threaded distributed systems, and resolving distributed deadlocks in the OR request model. Lacks a subject index. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR.
