Abstract:

This paper describes a set of algorithms proposed for recovery from hardware and software failure in a distributed computer network. These algorithms are designed so that, in most cases of temporary failure in a processor, storage medium or inputoutput device, the remaining components elsewhere in the network continue to function. When the failure is repaired the system automatically reconfigures itself to include the failed component. Author
