"...an excellent overview of available techniques." Computing Reviews "The book provides an up-to-date introduction to both distributed algorithms, and to the theory behind these algorithms. The clear presentation makes the book suitable for advanced undergraduate or graduate courses, while the coverage is sufficiently deep to make it useful for practising engineers and researchers." Mathematical Reviews "Provides a very decent interesting to significant topics of the theory of Distributed Computing, and it is especially suitable as both a reference book and a textbook." SIGACT News "...a nice textbook...I recommend this book for readers who are interested in a theoretical view of distributed control algorithms." IEEE Parallel & Distributed Technology
