We compare the consensus and uniform consensus problems in synchronous systems. In contrast to consensus, uniform consensus is not solvable with byzantine failures. This still holds for the omission failure model if a majority of processes may be faulty. For the crash failure model, both consensus and uniform consensus are solvable, no matter how many processes are faulty. In this failure model, we examine the number of rounds required to reach a decision in the consensus and uniform consensusdoi:10.1016/j.jalgor.2003.11.001 fatcat:7c2kqmwjkzelnmilc2qgktyfiu
