Distributed systems are notoriously difficult to understand and analyze in order to assert their correction w.r.t. given properties. They often exhibit a huge number of different behaviors, as soon as the active entities (peers, agents, processes, . . . ) behave in an asynchronous manner. Already the modelization of such systems is a non-trivial task, let alone their formal verification.
