Distributed Computing by Mobile Robots: Gathering

  title={Distributed Computing by Mobile Robots: Gathering},
  author={Mark Cieliebak and Paola Flocchini and Giuseppe Prencipe and Nicola Santoro},
  journal={SIAM J. Comput.},
Consider a set of n > 2 identical mobile computational entities in the plane, called robots, operating in Look-Compute-Move cycles, without any means of direct communication. The Gathering Problem is the primitive task of all entities gathering in finite time at a point not fixed in advance, without any external control. The problem has been extensively studied in the literature under a variety of strong assumptions (e.g., synchronicity of the cycles, instantaneous movements, complete memory of… CONTINUE READING
