Objetivos del Curso:

The goal of the course is to introduce the notion of distributed algorithms and the main problems of distributed computing, to show the basic techniques for the design of distributed algorithms and to give the tools for comparing different solutions to the same problem and choosing the best one. The keywords wich better describe the content of the course are the following. Computational models. Communication complexity. Design and analysis of distributed algorithms. Control algorithms. Asynchronous computations. Synchronous computations. Fault-tolerant algorithms. Manipulation of distributed data. Examples of applications in communication networks and systems of communicating agents.


  • Distributed Environments: The Model, Examples
  • Coordination and Control: Broadcast, Spanning tree construction
