The goal of the Asilomar Workshop on Fault-Tolerant Distributed Computing, held March 17-19, 1986, was to facilitate interaction between theoreticians and practitioners by inviting speakers and choosing topics so as to present a broad overview of the field. This volume contains 22 papers stemming from the workshop, most of them revised and rewritten, presenting research results in distributed systems and fault-tolerant architectures and systems. The volume should be of use to students, researchers and developers.
