Abstract:Besides the complexity in time or in number of messages, a common approach for analyzing distributed algorithms is to look at the assumptions they make on the underlying network. We investigate this question from the perspective of network dynamics. In particular, we ask how a given property on the evolution of the network can be rigorously proven as necessary or sufficient for a given algorithm. The main contribution of this paper is to propose the combination of two existing tools in this direction: local co… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
