We consider the fundamental problem of waking up n processors sharing a multiple access channel. We assume the weakest model of synchronization, the locally synchronous model, in which no global clock is available: processors have local clocks ticking at the same rate, but each clock starts counting the rounds in the round in which the correspondent processor wakes up. Moreover, the number n of processors is not known to the processors. We propose a new deterministic algorithm for this problem, which improves on the currently best upper bound.

Abstract

We consider the fundamental problem of waking up n processors sharing a multiple access channel. We assume the weakest model of synchronization, the locally synchronous model, in which no global clock is available: processors have local clocks ticking at the same rate, but each clock starts counting the rounds in the round in which the correspondent processor wakes up. Moreover, the number n of processors is not known to the processors. We propose a new deterministic algorithm for this problem, which improves on the currently best upper bound.
