Secure and Efficient Algorithms for Fundamental Distributed Computing Problems


In the first part of our work, we look at message-efficient distributed algorithms for the leader election problem. We give tight upper and lower bounds for both randomized and deterministic leader election algorithms for networks with diameter two. In the second part of our algorithm, we look at Byzantine fault-tolerant algorithms for some fundamental distributed computing problems.
