The explosive growth of distributed computing systems makes understanding them imperative. To make this notoriously difficult subject accessible, 'Distributed Computing; Fundamentals, Simulations, and Advanced Topics; Second Edition', provides a solid introduction to the mathematical foundations and theory of distributed computing, highlighting common themes and basic techniques. The authors present the fundamental issues underlying the design of distributed systems - communication, coordination, synchronization, and uncertainty - as well as fundamental algorithmic concepts and lower-bound techniques. The book’s unifying approach emphasizes the similarities between different models and explains inherent discrepancies between them.
