Title: Electing a Leader in the Presence of Faults: A Ring as a Special Case
Authors: L. Shrira and O. Goldreich
Abstract: We consider the problem of electing a leader in a network consisting of links which may fail. In particular, we study the special case in which the network is a ring of n-processors (and one of its links may fail). We present an O(n logn) algorithm for electing a leader in such a "faulty" ring.
