Abstract

The objectives of the PDCS project focus on the problems of producing dependable distributed real-time systems and especially those where the dependability requirements centre on issues of safety and/or security. A major characteristic of the projects has been their concentration on exploring links, and gaps, between topics that are often investigated separately, but whose interactions could be of considerable relevance to issues of overall system dependability. The second major characteristic has been the stress put on the use of quantitative assessments of system dependability. This book presents a selection of published papers from the project, chosen to provide an overview of the work since 1989, as well as coverage of the major research achievements.
