Abstract. We propose a rule-based language, Netlog, to express distributed applications such as communication protocols or P2P applications in a declarative manner. The language extends Datalog with communication primitives, as well as aggregation and non-deterministic constructs, standard in network applications. Our contribution is twofold. First we define a sound distributed fixpoint semantics, which takes explicitly into account the in-node behavior as well as the communication between nodes, and solves s…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific 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 researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
