Distributed Algorithms For Fault ToleranceFDA155, 2006VT
18h, plus invited lectures depending on availability of external guests
PhD students with fundamental knowledge in logic, discrete mathematics and computer algorithms corresponding to the core courses in CUGS graduate school.
The course was last given
The course will give an overview of theoretical problems in distributed systems with a focus in scenarios in which fault, errors and failures are impotant. Students get a deeper knowledge about group communication mechanisms and consensus algorithms in fault-tolerant systems.
Undergraduate course in distributed systems is recommended.
Articles, selected chapters from books by Muellender, Tel and Lynch
Simin Nadjm-Tehrani (eight lectures) , Ulf Nilsson (one lecture)
