PY - 1991/5

N2 - An efficient protocol for leader election in an asynchronous complete network is presented. The time complexity of the protocol is better than the currently known protocols for this problem. A message optimal protocol is presented that requires O(N/log N) time, where N is the number of nodes in the network. Also given is family of protocols with message and time complexities O(Nk) and O(N/k) respectively, where log N ≤ k ≤ N. Many problems such as spanning tree construction, computing a global function, etc., are equivalent to leader election in terms of their message and time complexities, and therefore the author's results also improve the time complexity of these problems.
