    Nyckelord :TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is concerned with exploring methods for making computing systems more resilient to problems in the network communication, both in the setting of existing infrastructure but also in the case where no infrastructure is available. Specifically, we target a situation called network partitions which means that a computer or device network is split in two or more parts that cannot communicate with each other. LÄS MER
