Self-Stabilization by Window Washing

By Adam M. Costello and George Varghese


A useful way to design simple and robust protocols is to make them self-stabilizing. We describe a new general technique for self-stabilization called window washing. We apply this technique to generalized sliding window protocols that work on a number of topologies. This results in simple, efficient, and self-stabilizing protocols. As far as we know, both windowwashingand generalized sliding window protocols are new ideas. Our protocols can be used for data links, reliable broadcast, and flow control
