The shadow approach: An orphan detection protocol for mobile agents

  title={The shadow approach: An orphan detection protocol for mobile agents},
  author={Joachim Baumann and Kurt Rothermel},
  journal={Personal Technologies},
Orphan detection in distributed systems is a well-researched field for which many solutions exist. These solutions exploit well defined parent-child relationships given in distributed systems. But they are not applicable in mobile agent systems, since no similar natural relationship between agents exist. Thus new protocols have to be developed. In this paper one such protocol for controlling mobile mobile agents and for orphan detection is presented. The “shadow” approach presented in this… CONTINUE READING
