Communication and Agreement Abstractions for Fault-Tolerant Asynchronous Distributed Systems - Synthesis Lectures on Distributed Computing Theory (Paperback)Michel Raynal (author)
- We can order this
Impossibility results are associated with these abstractions. Hence, in order to circumvent these impossibilities, the book relies on the failure detector approach, and, consequently, that approach to fault-tolerance is central to the book.

"The value of this book lies in its narrow focus on the register, broadcast, and consensus abstractions. This allows the reader to obtain a thorough understanding of the essential foundations of distributed computing, without being distracted by other aspects of distributed systems that are less important or irrelevant from a foundational standpoint. As such, this book is an ideal textbook for graduate students in computer science who have an interest in distributed computing; it will also work as a reference for researchers and interested professionals. The book is very well written and has a rigorous approach to its subject. Needless to say, it requires substantial mathematical maturity from the reader. This maturity will allow the target audience to truly appreciate the clean and beautiful presentation of this difficult material." - Burkhard Englert for ACM Computing Reviews
