For the firsttime, the fundamentals of distributed computing will be accessibleto nonspecialists. The explosive growth of distributed computing systems makesunderstanding them imperative. To make this notoriously difficultsubject accessible, Distributed Computing: Fundamentals,Simulations, and Advanced Topics; Second Edition, provides a solidintroduction to the mathematical foundations and theory ofdistributed computing, highlighting common themes and basictechniques.
Focusingon ideas rather than optimizations, the book discusses major modelsof distributed computing, including:. With new material on such subjects as fast mutual exclusion andqueue locks, and improved coverage of existing material throughout,this Second Edition will serve as a comprehensive textbook forgraduate and advanced undergraduate students, and as a keyreference for researchers and practicing professionals.

It would not be the best for self-study though. One person found this helpful. This is a good book in the field of distributed computing, but wepch is very mathematically oriented. It concentrates on impossibility proofs and lower bound proofs.
I advise people new to this material to read a more descriptive book before reading this one. In my opinion, this book is difficult to read with very few exhibits. The author’s comprehension is profound with tons of references.
This book should be used between intermediate to an advanced course of Distributed Computing area. The authors give a mathematically sophisticated analysis of various modes of distributed computing. Where the distribution might refer to separate CPUs in a multiprocessor architecture, or perhaps to separate computers inside a LAN, or to computers scattered across the Internet. We see that issues of latency and reliability can [and will] arise. Coordinating a task across the processors gives rise to amazing complexity.
What if some processors crash? A consensus problem occurs. How to solve it is explained. There are also impossibilities in task solving that might occur, and diztributed need to be treated carefully. distributrd
The narrative has suggestions on how to diagnose if such events happen. The reader will see that fault tolerance can be awkward to handle.
The treatment may be too mathematical for some readers. You need a strong background in maths; preferably including discrete maths. See all 5 reviews.
