Characterizing Consensus in the Heard-Of Model

pdf-format:
LIPIcs-CONCUR-2020-9.pdf (0.9 MB)


Abstract

The Heard-Of model is a simple and relatively expressive model of distributed computation. Because of this, it has gained a considerable attention of the verification community. We give a characterization of all algorithms solving consensus in a fragment of this model. The fragment is big enough to cover many prominent consensus algorithms. The characterization is purely syntactic: it is expressed in terms of some conditions on the text of the algorithm.
