Kurzbeschreibung

1. März 2013
Distributed Computing Through Combinatorial Topology describes techniques for analyzing distributed algorithms based on award winning combinatorial topology research. The authors present a solid theoretical foundation relevant to many real systems reliant on parallelism with unpredictable delays, such as multicore microprocessors, wireless networks, distributed systems, and Internet protocols. Today, a new student or researcher must assemble a collection of scattered conference publications, which are typically terse and commonly use different notations and terminologies. This book provides a self-contained explanation of the mathematics to readers with computer science backgrounds, as well as explaining computer science concepts to readers with backgrounds in applied mathematics. The first section presents mathematical notions and models, including message passing and shared-memory systems, failures, and timing models. The next section presents core concepts in two chapters each: first, proving a simple result that lends itself to examples and pictures that will build up readers' intuition; then generalizing the concept to prove a more sophisticated result. The overall result weaves together and develops the basic concepts of the field, presenting them in a gradual and intuitively appealing way. The book's final section discusses advanced topics typically found in a graduate-level course for those who wish to explore further. * Named a 2013 Notable Computer Book for Computing Methodologies by Computing Reviews* Gathers knowledge otherwise spread across research and conference papers using consistent notations and a standard approach to facilitate understanding* Presents unique insights applicable to multiple computing fields, including multicore microprocessors, wireless networks, distributed systems, and Internet protocols * Synthesizes and distills material into a simple, unified presentation with examples, illustrations, and exercises

Pressestimmen

"...there has not been a monograph that comprehensively covers the intersection of topology and distributed computing...This book thus finds its place for filling precisely this niche, and will be welcomed by readers..." - Computing Reviews, july 2014 "In Distributed Computing, the modern mathematical field of Combinatorial Topology finally finds a natural application space. This book elucidates this intriguing connection through a series of well thought out examples, making complex computational phenomena and the deep theorems seem intuitive even to the beginner. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in the fundamentals of computing, since asynchrony, the key phenomena this book explains, is bound to dominate computation and communication in years to come." - Prof. Nir Shavit, Professor of Computer Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA "Written by the leading experts in this area, this book is a unique endeavor covering the exciting topic of understanding distributed computing through topology. The book will appeal to researchers in distributed computing and to mathematicians. - Prof. Hagit Attiya, Professor of Computer Science, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology "This book is a major contribution to distributed computing, integrated with algebraic topology. Based on the seminal work of the authors, it represents a collection of the most up-to-date results in the field, presented in a very progressive manner, from intuitions to detailed proofs and connections to fundamental mathematical concepts. - ric Goubault, cea list and cole Polytechnique
