Abstract: Some basic agreement protocols for fault-tolerant distributed systems have been modelled using predicate/transition nets. The main emphasis has been 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 general problem. System properties of the resulting nets have been studied using net-theoretical methods.
Keywords: agreement problem; fault-tolerant distributed system; predicate/transition nets; consensus problem; consistency problem.
