Abstract

The services provided by computers and communication networks are becoming more critical to our society. Such services increase the need for computers and their applications to operate reliably, even in the presence of faults. Fault tolerance is particularly important for distributed and networked systems (Mullender, 1993), including telecommunication, power distribution, transportation, manufacturing, and financial systems.
