    • Understanding Partitions and the "No Partition" Assumption 

      Ricciardi, Aleta M.; Schiper, Andre; Birman, Kenneth P. (Cornell University, 1993-06)
      The paper discusses partitions in asynchronous message-passing systems. In such systems slow processes and slow links can lead to virtual partitions that are indistinguishable from real ones. This raises the following ...
    • Uniform Actions in Asynchronous Distributed Systems 

      Malki, Dalia; Birman, Kenneth P.; Ricciardi, Aleta M.; Schiper, Andre (Cornell University, 1994-09)
      We develop necessary conditions for the development of asynchronous distributed software that will perform {\em uniform} actions (events that if performed by any process, must be performed at all processes). The paper ...
    • Virtually-Synchronous Communication Based on a Weak Failure Suspector 

      Schiper, Andre; Ricciardi, Aleta M. (Cornell University, 1993-04)
      Failure detectors (or, more accurately, Failure Suspectors - FS) appear to be a fundamental service upon which to build fault-tolerant, distributed applications. This paper shows that a FS with very weak semantics (i.e. ...
