  title={A More Efficient Message-Optimal Algorithm for Distributed Termination Detection},
  author={Ten-Hwang Lai and Yu-Chee Tseng and Xuefeng Dong},
Termination detection is a fundamental problem in distributed computing. Many algorithms have been proposed, but only the Chandrasekaran and Venkatesan (CV) algorithm [l] is known to be optimal in worst-case message complexity. This optimal algorithm, however, has several undesirable properties. First, it always requires M’ + 2 * IEl+ n 1 control messages, whether it is worst case o r best case, where M’ is the number of basic messages issued b y the underlying computation after the algorithm… CONTINUE READING
