Contention-free MAC protocols for asynchronous wireless sensor networks
A MAC protocol specifies how nodes in a sensor network access a shared communication channel. Desired properties of a MAC protocol are: it should be contention-free (avoid collisio...

Fast computation by population protocols with a leader
Fast algorithms are presented for performing computations in a probabilistic population model. This is a variant of the standard population protocol model--in which finite-state ag...

On implementing omega in systems with weak reliability and synchrony assumptions
We study the feasibility and cost of implementing --a fundamental failure detector at the core of many algorithms--in systems with weak reliability and synchrony assumptions. Intui...

Checking sequences for distributed test architectures
This study addresses the construction of a preset checking sequence that will not pose controllability (synchronization) and observability (undetectable output shift) problems whe...

Approximate distributed top- k queries
We consider a distributed system where each node keeps a local count for items (similar to elections where nodes are ballot boxes and items are candidates). A top-k query in such ...

Solo-valency and the cost of coordination
This paper introduces solo-valency, a variation on the valency proof technique originated by Fischer, Lynch, and Paterson. The new technique focuses on critical events that influe...

The weakest failure detectors to boost obstruction-freedom
This paper determines necessary and sufficient conditions to implement wait-free and non-blocking contention managers in a shared memory system. The necessary conditions hold even...
