Economic Models and Algorithms for Distributed Systems

Part of the Autonomic Systems book series (ASYS)


Modern computing paradigms have frequently adopted concepts from distributed systems. The quest for scalability, reliability and cost reduction has led to the development of massively distributed systems, which extend organisational boundaries. Voluntary computing environments (such as BOINC), Grids (such as EGEE and Globus), and more recently Cloud Computing (both open source and commercial) have established themselves as a range of distributed systems.
