Efficient Communication Establishment in Extremely Unreliable Large Networks

We consider here a large network of $n$ nodes which supports
only the following unreliable basic communication primitive:
when a node requests communication then this request
{\em may fail}, independently of other requests, with probability
$f<1$. Even if it succeeds, the request is answered by returning
a stable link to ... more >>>

A Theory of Goal-Oriented Communication

Revisions: 1 , Comments: 1

We put forward a general theory of goal-oriented communication, where communication is not an end in itself, but rather a means to achieving some goals of the communicating parties. The goals can vary from setting to setting, and we provide a general framework for describing any such goal. In this ... more >>>
