PODC list subscribers,
You might be interested in a new monograph series I'm editing: the
Synthesis Lectures on Distributed Computing Theory, published by
Morgan and Claypool.
This series will publish 50- to 150-page monographs on topics
pertaining to any aspect of distributed computing theory, including
distributed algorithms and lower bounds, algorithm design methods,
formal modeling and verification of distributed algorithms, concurrent
data structures, etc.
This series is the latest addition to the Synthesis Digital Library of
Engineering and Computer Science. Synthesis is intended to fill the
gap between graduate textbooks and journals, providing focused
coverage of fast-moving areas in an approachable, pedagogical fashion.
Use of these books as course texts is encouraged; and the texts may
be downloaded without restriction at licensing institutions, or after
a one-time fee at non-licensing schools. These books can also be
purchased in print directly from the Morgan & Claypool Bookstore, or
from Amazon and other booksellers worldwide.
