Gutierrez-Nolasco, Sebastian and Venkatasubramanian, Nalini and Talcott, Carolyn and Stehr, Mark-Oliver - 2011 - PDF

Mobility and intermittent connectivity inject inaccuracy in determining group membership and exacerbate the time re- quired to agree on the current group membership. In this paper, we present a group membership service based on par- tial member connectivity that allows members to agree on a shared approximation of the group membership based on lo- cal neighborhood connectivity. In particular, the consistency needs provided by the application determine the degree of consistency of the membership service and allow the mem- bership service to tailor the neighborhood service in terms of fidelity ratio and time detection period.
