    • Fast Ordered Multicasts 

      Stephenson, Patrick (Cornell University, 1991-02)
      In this thesis, we present new protocols that provide reliable ordered multicasts to multiple overlapping process groups in the presence of failures. Our protocols provide two kinds of message delivery ordering - causal ...
    • Programming with Shared Bulletin Boards in Asynchronus Distributed Systems 

      Birman, Kenneth P.; Joseph, Thomas A.; Schmuck, Frank B.; Stephenson, Patrick (Cornell University, 1986-08)
      We consider loosely coupled distributed computing systems in which processes interact through shared resources, which are modeled as bulletin boards. The first part of the paper formalizes the notion of consistent behavior ...
    • Reliable Broadcast Protocols and Network Architecture: Tradeoffs and Lower Bounds 

      Babaoglu, Ozalp; Drummond, Rogerio; Stephenson, Patrick (Cornell University, 1986-05)
      Reliable Broadcast is a mechanism by which a processor in a distributed system disseminates a value to all other processors in the presence of both communication and processor failures. Protocols to achieve Reliable ...
    • Reliable Broadcasts Through Partial Broadcasts 

      Babaoglu, Ozalp; Stephenson, Patrick (Cornell University, 1985-12)
      In the Reliable Broadcast Problem, a processor disseminates a value to all other processors in a distributed system where both processors and communication components are subject to failures. We prove lower bounds for ...
