Includes bibliographical references and index.
This volume presents the proceedings of the 8th International Workshop on Distributed Algorithms (WDAG '94), held on the island of Terschelling, The Netherlands in September 1994. Besides the 23 research papers carefully selected by the program committee, the book contains 3 invited papers. The volume covers all relevant aspects of distributed algorithms; the topics discussed include network protocols, distributed control and communication, real-time systems, dynamic algorithms, self-stabilizing algorithms, synchronization, graph algorithms, wait-free algorithms, mechanisms for security, replicating data, and distributed databases.
