The course will cover basic topics in the theory of fault tolerant distributed computing. The material to be covered includes lower bounds, impossibility results and deterministic and randomized fault-tolerant algorithms for problems such as information dissemination, consensus and coordinated attack, in various fault models.
Upon successful completion of this course student should be able to:
- Describe the key notions and principles of fault-tolerance in distributed computing theory.
- Explain basic paradigms and algorithmic techniques of the field of fault-tolerant distributed algorithms.
- Solve central problems in the field.
- Discuss modern research in the field.
