Brief Announcement: Crash-Tolerant Consensus in Directed Graph Revisited

pdf-format:
LIPIcs-DISC-2017-46.pdf (0.3 MB)


Abstract

We revisit the problem of distributed consensus in directed graphs tolerating crash failures; we improve the round and communication complexity of the existing protocols. Moreover, we prove that our protocol requires the optimal number of communication rounds, required by any protocol belonging to a specific class of crash-tolerant consensus protocols in directed graphs.
