CONVERGENCE ANALYSIS OF DISTRIBUTED ASYNCHRONOUS ITERATIVE PROCESSES.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We consider a model of distributed iterative algorithms whereby several processors participate in the computation while collecting, possibly stochastic information from the environment or other processors via communication links. Several applications in distributed optimization, parameter estimation, and communication networks are described. Issues of asymptotic convergence and agreement are explored under very weak assumptions on the ordering of computations and the timing of information reception. Progress towards constructing a broadly applicable theory is surveyed.
