Continuous consensus via common knowledge

Tal Mizrahi, Yoram Moses
2007 Distributed computing  
A close connection between continuous consensus and knowledge is established by showing that in every continuous consensus protocol, the information in the core at any given time must be common knowledge  ...  Based on the characterization of common knowledge by Moses and Tuttle, it is shown that ConCon is an optimum protocol for continuous consensus, maintaining the most up-to-date core possible at all times  ...  Section 3 presents the ConCon protocol for continuous consensus and proves its correctness. Section 4 relates continuous consensus to common knowledge.  ...

Transforming worst-case optimal solutions for simultaneous tasks into all-case optimal solutions

Maurice P. Herlihy, Yoram Moses, Mark R. Tuttle
2011 Proceedings of the 30th annual ACM SIGACT-SIGOPS symposium on Principles of distributed computing - PODC '11  
Examples to which this can be applied include set consensus, condition-based consensus, renaming and order-preserving renaming.  ...  Some of these tasks can be solved significantly faster than the classical simultaneous consensus task.  ...  In a precise sense, continuous consensus is closely related to the notion of common knowledge. Indeed, all of the facts in the CC core are guaranteed to be common knowledge.  ...
