Abstract

In distributed and/or replicated systems, there is often the need for one system to get updated information from others. For this reason, there is a node notation introduced, in which each node has a unique ID of an ID tree. The root node (the first node in the system) has a zero-length name. Whenever an additional node joins, it gets the name of the introducing node as a prefix, followed by a unique symbol which the parent has not yet appended.
