Self-stabilization, an important concept to theoreticians and practitioners in distributed computing and communication networks, refers to a system's ability to recover automatically from unexpected faults. In this book Shlomi Dolev presents the fundamentals of self-stabilization and demonstrates the process of designing self-stabilizing distributed systems. He details the algorithms that can be started in an arbitrary state, allowing the system to recover from the faults that brought it to that state. The book proceeds from the basic concept of self-stabilizing algorithms to advanced applications.
