A co-publication of the AMS and DIMACS
This volume presents the proceedings from the DIMACS Workshop in Distributed
Computing held at Rutgers University. It provides a broad survey of major
topics concerning modern applications of networks in the context of
distributed computing. Articles included touch upon fundamental problems and
challenges related to recent technological advances in the networking industry
which are directly relevant and interesting to research on the mathematical
principles of distributed computing.
Included are issues on diverse areas of networking such as ATM networking technology, issues on routing and flow control in communications networks, security, optical networking and mobile computing. This volume provides state-of-the-art research in these significant areas. The material should acquaint the theoretical community of distributed computing with related issues and problems.
Treatment is applied and tailored to industrial advances in networking, however the underlying material presents a rich variety of theoretical problems in distributed computing that carry significant interest and challenge for the modern mathematician.
Co-published with the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science beginning with Volume 8. Volumes 1–7 were co-published with the Association for Computer Machinery (ACM).
