Title: An Efficient Distributed Orientation Algorithm
Authors: Uzi Vishkin
Abstract: An algorithm for constructing and maintaining full information on the structure of a corrmunication network is presented. The algorithm uses distributed computaiton. The load on the lines of the network is measured. It is shown that the network will recover in finite time from a finite number of topological changes in the network. This means that every two nodes in the same 'final' connected component in the network ultimately maintain the same 'picture' of the network. Another, more powerful, validity criterion is also given.
