    The author discusses aspects of Internet's resource discovery problem: how users specify searches, the difference between discovering classes of resources and locating appropriate instances, system-management problems that can be cast as global state discovery searches, issues involved with characterizing resources and with the efficient distribution of characterizing information, and social issue...

    The authors describe the use of generalized rate monotonic scheduling (GRMS) theory for the design and analysis of a distributed real-time system. This theory ensures that as long as the system utilization of all tasks lies below a certain bound, and appropriate scheduling algorithms are used, all tasks will meet their deadlines. This puts the development and maintenance of real-time systems on an... View full abstract»

    An overview of resource discovery services currently available on the Internet is presented. The authors concentrate on the following discovery tools: the Wide Area Information Servers (WAIS) project, Archie, Prospero, Gopher. The World-Wide Web (WWW), Netfind, the X.500 directory, Indie, the Knowbot Information Service (KIS), Alex, Semantic File Systems, and Nomenclator. The authors summarize the... View full abstract»

    A distributed approach to communication network simulation using a network of workstations configured as a loosely coupled parallel processor to model and simulate the broadband integrated services digital network (B-ISDN) is proposed. In a loosely coupled parallel processor system, a number of concurrently executable processors communicate asynchronously using explicit messages over high-speed li... View full abstract»

    The authors focus on electronic networking in the Baltic republics in the aftermath of their newly regained independence. The authors present background on the existing technology and the problems the Baltics inherited from the erstwhile Soviet Union that have constrained network development. The problems have included limited technical capabilities of Soviet-manufactured computers and the expensi... View full abstract»

    The problems, limitations, and potential advantages of mobile computing systems are discussed. It is suggested that the constraints violate many of the assumptions upon which today's distributed systems are based. A key requirement of mobile computing systems will be the ability to access critical data regardless of location, which implies interdependence between the elements of a mobile computing...
