People have always tried to understand natural phenomena. In computer science natural phenomena are mostly used as a source of inspiration for solving various problems in distributed systems such as optimization, clustering, data processing, etc. In this paper we will give an overview of research in field of computer science where fireflies in nature are used as role models for time synchronization. We will compare two models of oscillators that explain firefly synchronization along with other… CONTINUE READING
