  author={Jean R. S. Blair and Fredrik Manne},
We present a self-stabilizing algorithm for the distance-2 coloring problem that uses a constant number of variables on each node and that stabilizes in O(Δm) moves using at most Δ + 1 colors, where Δ is the maximum degree in the graph and m is the number of edges in the graph. The analysis holds true both for the sequential and the distributed adversarial daemon model. This should be compared with the previous best self-stabilizing algorithm for this problem which stabilizes in O(nm) moves… CONTINUE READING
