Title: A 1.44 ... NlogN Algorithm for Distributed Leader-Finding in Bidirectional Rings of Processors
Authors: S. Moran, M. Shalom and S. Zaks
Abstract: This work presents an algorithm for finding a leader in a bidirectional ring without a common sense of orientation, using at most 1.44... nlogn + O(n) messages. This improves the previous upper bound of 1.89... nlogn + O(n) messages.
