Abstract:
Keeping the local times of processes in distributed system synchronized in the presence of arbitrary faults is important in many applications and is an interesting theoretical problem in its own right. In order to be practical, any algorithm to synchronize clocks must be able to deal with process failures and repairs, clock drift, and varying message delivery times, but these conditions complicate the design and analysis of algorithms.
