After successfully completing this module, students will be able to name the basic properties of distributed algorithms and applications and to describe common models for describing distributed systems. They will be able to explain the challenges and requirements implied by the distribution aspect in the development of distributed algorithms.
Students will be able to evaluate and implement essential aspects of distributed algorithms and applications, such as causal dependency, logical time, synchronization, etc... They will be able to transfer and apply the theoretical knowledge taught in the lecture, in order to solve actual problems. In addition, students will be able to provide simple proof for the correctness of distributed algorithms.
- Broadcast and propagation with feedback
- Causal dependency
