Both authors have taught the course of aDistributed Systemsa for many years in the respective schools. During the teaching, we feel strongly that aDistributed systemsa have evolved from traditional aLANa based distributed systems towards aInternet baseda systems. Although there exist many excellent textbooks on this topic, because of the fast development of distributed systems and network programming/protocols, we have difficulty in finding an appropriate textbook for the course of adistributed systemsa with orientation to the requirement of the undergraduate level study for todayas distributed technology. Specifically, from - to-date concepts, algorithms, and models to implementations for both distributed system designs and application programming. Thus the philosophy behind this book is to integrate the concepts, algorithm designs and implementations of distributed systems based on network programming. After using several materials of other textbooks and research books, we found that many texts treat the distributed systems with separation of concepts, algorithm design and network programming and it is very difficult for students to map the concepts of distributed systems to the algorithm design, prototyping and implementations. This book intends to enable readers, especially postgraduates and senior undergraduate level, to study up-to-date concepts, algorithms and network programming skills for building modern distributed systems. It enables students not only to master the concepts of distributed network system but also to readily use the material introduced into implementation practices.Reconfigurable duplication architecture 206 207 214 214 215 218 222 Figure 9.6 .
