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.

Strana 2 - each computing entity can only be aware of information that it acquires, it has only a local view of the global situation. Computing entities can fail independently, leaving some components operational while others are not. The explosive growth of distributed systems makes it imperative to understand how to overcome these difficulties.
