The interdisciplinary study of coordination
 ACM Computing Surveys
, 1994
"... This survey characterizes an emerging research area, sometimes called coordination theory, that focuses on the interdisciplinary study of coordination. Research in this area uses and extends ideas about coordination from disciplines such as computer science, organization theory, operations research, ..."

. Section 3 summarizes ways of applying a coordination perspective in three different domains: (1) understanding the effects of information technology on human organizations and markets, (2) designing cooperative work tools, and (3) designing distributed and parallel computer systems. In the final section
Medium Access Control with Coordinated Adaptive Sleeping for Wireless Sensor Networks
 IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking
, 2004
"... This paper proposes SMAC, a medium access control (MAC) protocol designed for wireless sensor networks. Wireless sensor networks use batteryoperated computing and sensing devices. A network of these devices will collaborate for a common application such as environmental monitoring. We expect senso ..."

Predicting Internet Network Distance with CoordinatesBased Approaches
 In INFOCOM
, 2001
"... In this paper, we propose to use coordinatesbased mechanisms in a peertopeer architecture to predict Internet network distance (i.e. roundtrip propagation and transmission delay) . We study two mechanisms. The first is a previously proposed scheme, called the triangulated heuristic, which is bas ..."

Vivaldi: A Decentralized Network Coordinate System
 In SIGCOMM
, 2004
"... Largescale Internet applications can benefit from an ability to predict roundtrip times to other hosts without having to contact them first. Explicit measurements are often unattractive because the cost of measurement can outweigh the benefits of exploiting proximity information. Vivaldi is a simp ..."

simple, lightweight algorithm that assigns synthetic coordinates to hosts such that the distance between the coordinates of two hosts accurately predicts the communication latency between the hosts.
DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS
, 1985
"... Growth of distributed systems has attained unstoppable momentum. If we better understood how to think about, analyze, and design distributed systems, we could direct their implementation with more confidence. ..."

Distributed Database Systems
"... this article, we discuss the fundamentals of distributed DBMS technology. We address the data distribution and architectural design issues as well as the algorithms that need to be implemented to provide the basic DBMS functions such as query processing, concurrency control, reliability, and replica ..."

Coordination of Groups of Mobile Autonomous Agents Using Nearest Neighbor Rules
, 2002
"... In a recent Physical Review Letters paper, Vicsek et. al. propose a simple but compelling discretetime model of n autonomous agents fi.e., points or particlesg all moving in the plane with the same speed but with dierent headings. Each agent's heading is updated using a local rule based on ..."

coordination and despite the fact that each agent's set of nearest neighbors change with time as the system evolves. This paper provides a theoretical explanation for this observed behavior. In addition, convergence results are derived for several other similarly inspired models.
Optimization Flow Control, I: Basic Algorithm and Convergence
 IEEE/ACM TRANSACTIONS ON NETWORKING
, 1999
"... We propose an optimization approach to flow control where the objective is to maximize the aggregate source utility over their transmission rates. We view network links and sources as processors of a distributed computation system to solve the dual problem using gradient projection algorithm. In thi ..."

Estimating the Support of a HighDimensional Distribution
, 1999
"... Suppose you are given some dataset drawn from an underlying probability distribution P and you want to estimate a "simple" subset S of input space such that the probability that a test point drawn from P lies outside of S is bounded by some a priori specified between 0 and 1. We propo ..."
