Abstract: Some basic agreement protocols for fault-tolerant distributed systems are modelled using predicate/transition nets. The main emphasis is laid on the solution protocol for the Consensus Problem; it is based on the solution protocols for the Interactive Consistency Problem and the so-called Generals Problem. System properties of the resulting nets are studied using net-theoretical methods.
Keywords: modelling oral message solution protocol(s) (for) agreement problems (in) fault-tolerant distributed systems (using) predicate/transition net(s); consensus problem; interactive consistency problem; generals problem.
