Fall. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: undergraduate discrete math, CS 2800  or equivalent.

E. Shi.

Distributed consensus protocols have been widely adopted in replicated databases and decentralized cryptocurrencies. In this course, we will explore how to design formally secure protocols that allow nodes to reach consensus in a distributed system. Both classical consensus and modern blockchains will be discussed.
