Formal Analysis of a Distributed Algorithm for Tracking Progress [chapter]

Martín Abadi, Frank McSherry, Derek G. Murray, Thomas L. Rodeheffer
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Tracking the progress of computations can be both important and delicate in distributed systems.  ...  In a recent distributed algorithm for this purpose, each processor maintains a delayed view of the pending work, which is represented in terms of points in virtual time.  ...  We are grateful to Paul Barham, Damien Doligez, Rebecca Isaacs, Michael Isard, Leslie Lamport, and Stephan Merz for discussions about Naiad, the progress tracking protocol, and the TLA proof system.  ...

Plastic transformations: A method for building dependable distributed applications

G.-C. Roman, J.C. Hu
1998 IEE Proceedings - Software  
This paper provides a possible characterisation of the notion of a plastic transformation and discusses ways in which wellestablished, correct distributed algorithms can be transformed into specific applications  ...  Distributed algorithms and the heuristics used by program derivation methods represent a large repository of fundamental knowledge that has been acquired over the years by the distributed computing community  ...  When the cart receives a new piece of baggage, which is scanned for a destination, the current track automatically receives a request for a path to it. This initiates the search algorithm.  ...
