Includes bibliographical references and index.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 10th International Workshop on Distributed Algorithms, WDAG '96, held in Bologna, Italy, in October 1996. The volume presents 21 revised full papers selected from 75 submissions together with invited contributions by Butler Lampson and Domenico Ferrari. The volume reflects the transition of the area from formerly being the domain of a small research community to becoming the dominant computing paradigm and an industrial technology. Among the topics covered are all current aspects of distributed algorithms ranging from theory to applications such as distributed intelligent agents.
