Short Lectures on Distributed Computing: Lecture 1 – Introduction

The first in a short series of lectures attempting the impossible task of covering distributed computing in 4 lectures to a group at the University of Bergen!

The Zoo of distributed computing  where you’ll find many kind of creatures – regular or strange, benign or dangerous, dumb or rational and cunning, healthy or weak, quick or slow, boring or interesting. Centralised vs Distributed – Message passing (flooding etc) with a hint of Shared memory and PRAM etc.

Here are the lecture slides in pdf.

    1. I suppose a reply is long long due – I use Keynote for making slides. Often, once can make nice animations, and the conversion features seem to work pretty well (to PDF or to powerpoint, if needed).
