November 14, 2016 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

Thesis Defense: Robust Local Algorithms for Communication and Stability in Distributed Networks

Speaker: Scott Roche, PhD Candidate, Northeastern University

Scott's thesis work focuses on two “lower-layer” primitives essential for robust distributed, networked systems: communication through information spreading protocols and distributed maintenance of overlay network topology. The first topic involves a protocol for information spreading, with potential applications to the study of the spread of epidemics on networks. The second branch of work focuses on a distributed protocol which maintains the expander topology of the overlay network in the presence of large-scale churn of nodes.
