Abstract:
A new problem, the Byzantine Firing Squad problem, is defined and solved in two versions, Permissive and Strict. Both problems provide for synchronization of initially unsynchronized processors in a synchronous network, in the absence of a common clock and in the presence of a limited number of faulty processors.
