<p><b>Abstract</b>—This paper presents the first (randomized) algorithm for implementing self-stabilizing group communication services in an asynchronous system. Our algorithm converges rapidly to legal behavior and is <it>communication adaptive</it>, namely, the communication volume is high when the system recovers from the occurrence of faults and is low once a legal state is reached. Communication adaptability is achieved by a new technique that combines transient fault detectors.</p>
