Structural Failure Models for Fault-Tolerant Distributed Computing

Given that faults cannot be prevented in sufficiently complex systems, means of fault tolerance are essential for dependable distributed systems. Designing and evaluating fault-tolerant systems require well-conceived fault models. In the past, theoretical works have used simplified models that, whil...
