Consensus in the presence of partial synchrony
 JOURNAL OF THE ACM
, 1988
"... The concept of partial synchrony in a distributed system is introduced. Partial synchrony lies between the cases of a synchronous system and an asynchronous system. In a synchronous system, there is a known fixed upper bound A on the time required for a message to be sent from one processor to ano ..."

to another and a known fixed upper bound (I, on the relative speeds of different processors. In an asynchronous system no fixed upper bounds A and (I, exist. In one version of partial synchrony, fixed bounds A and (I, exist, but they are not known a priori. The problem is to design protocols that work
Consensus Problems in Networks of Agents with Switching Topology and TimeDelays
, 2003
"... In this paper, we discuss consensus problems for a network of dynamic agents with fixed and switching topologies. We analyze three cases: i) networks with switching topology and no timedelays, ii) networks with fixed topology and communication timedelays, and iii) maxconsensus problems (or leader ..."

Global Optimization with Polynomials and the Problem of Moments
 SIAM JOURNAL ON OPTIMIZATION
, 2001
"... We consider the problem of finding the unconstrained global minimum of a realvalued polynomial p(x) : R R, as well as the global minimum of p(x), in a compact set K defined by polynomial inequalities. It is shown that this problem reduces to solving an (often finite) sequence of convex linear ma ..."

Impossibility of distributed consensus with one faulty process
, 1983
"... The consensus problem involves an asynchronous system of proceses, some of which may be unreliable. The problem is for the rcliablc processes to agree on a bbary value. h this paper, it is shown that every protocol for this problem has the possibility of nontermination, even with only otre faulty p ..."

Consensus and cooperation in networked multiagent systems
 Proceedings of the IEEE
, 2007
"... Summary. This paper provides a theoretical framework for analysis of consensus algorithms for multiagent networked systems with an emphasis on the role of directed information flow, robustness to changes in network topology due to link/node failures, timedelays, and performance guarantees. An ove ..."

. An overview of basic concepts of information consensus in networks and methods of convergence and performance analysis for the algorithms are provided. Our analysis framework is based on tools from matrix theory, algebraic graph theory, and control theory. We discuss the connections between consensus problems
Learning with local and global consistency.
 In NIPS,
, 2003
"... Abstract We consider the general problem of learning from labeled and unlabeled data, which is often called semisupervised learning or transductive inference. A principled approach to semisupervised learning is to design a classifying function which is sufficiently smooth with respect to the intr ..."

Distributed Snapshots: Determining Global States of Distributed Systems
 ACM TRANSACTIONS ON COMPUTER SYSTEMS
, 1985
"... This paper presents an algorithm by which a process in a distributed system determines a global state of the system during a computation. Many problems in distributed systems can be cast in terms of the problem of detecting global states. For instance, the global state detection algorithm helps to s ..."

Virtual time and global states of distributed systems.
 Proc. Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Algorithms,

However, the notion of time is an important concept in every day life of our decentralized \ r eal world" and helps to solve problems like getting a c ..."

Query Expansion Using Local and Global Document Analysis
 In Proceedings of the 19th Annual International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval
, 1996
"... Automatic query expansion has long been suggested as a technique for dealing with the fundamental issue of word mismatch in information retrieval. A number of approaches to expansion have been studied and, more recently, attention has focused on techniques that analyze the corpus to discover word re ..."

global analysis techniques, such as word context and phrase structure, on the local set of documents produces results that are both more effective and more predictable than simple local feedback. 1 Introduction The problem of word mismatch is fundamental to information retrieval. Simply stated, it means
Globally Consistent Range Scan Alignment for Environment Mapping
 AUTONOMOUS ROBOTS
, 1997
"... A robot exploring an unknown environmentmay need to build a world model from sensor measurements. In order to integrate all the frames of sensor data, it is essential to align the data properly. An incremental approach has been typically used in the past, in which each local frame of data is alig ..."

Because different parts of the model are updated independently while there are errors in the registration, such an approachmay result in an inconsistent model. In this paper, we study the problem of consistent registration of multiple
