ABSTRACT
<p><b>Abstract</b>—We propose a structure named <it>Cohorts</it> to solve the problem of the access control of multiple entries to a critical section. Our solution is formalized as forming quorums in a <it>k</it>-coterie. It is resilient to node failures and/or network partitioning, invokes constant expected message cost and has comparably high availability.</p>
INDEX TERMS
Availability, coteries, distributed systems, fault-tolerance, mutual exclusion, quorums.
