The seminar has its focus on core concepts, models and algorithms of distributed systems. The following lists technologies and concepts for advanced distributed systems.
Seminar methodology: Creative Extension Principle (van Roy, Haridi).
Modeling problems, time, temporal logic, events, causality, concurrency, failure models
Slides on modeling and concepts
Peter Wegners statements on the algorithmic power of interaction
Use of advanced partitioning for scalability. Transparency vs. cost. Google techtalk on scalability. Linden Labs integrated VW proposal. Partitioning principles and trade-offs.
Slides on scalability and partitioning
Concepts of event based systems, engineering, interaction models, security, transactions. Bundling and notification scopes.
Slides on event-driven systems
Slides on Event-Driven Systems
Concepts of causality in events, complex events, event detection and hierarchies, end-to-end event processing, semantics of events and composite events, CPE languages.
Slides on complex-event-processing (CPE)
Slides on Complex Event Processing (CEP)
