The last five years have seen the rapid rise in popularity of what we term internet distributed applications (IDAs). These are internet applications with which many users interact simultaneously. IDAs range from P2P file-sharing applications, to collaborative distributed computing projects, to massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs). Currently, there is no framework that combines IDAs collectively within a single context. We provide a basis for such a framework here.

We consider the problems of distributed detection and estimation in wireless sensor networks. We provide a general framework aimed to show how an efficient design of a sensor network requires a joint organization of in-network communication.

This text provides a more accessible introduction to distributed systems. The book brings together the ideas behind many of the more recent distributed systems - such as Amazon's Dynamo, Google's BigTable and MapReduce, Apache's Hadoop and so on.
