"...very well-written. All the figures, examples, and illustrations serve nicely to explain various concepts...mathematicians and computer scientists both would equally benefit from this book...a new researcher in this area would find this book very helpful" --**SIGACT News , ***Distributed Computing Through Combinatorial Topology*

"...the first systematic exposition of an approach to distributed computing based on tools of combinatorial topology…a valuable addition to the existing literature, it will be appreciated by many different categories of readers including university students and researchers in computers science as well as topologists interested in practical applications." **--Zentralblatt MATH, ***Distributed Computing Through Combinatorial Topology*

"This outstanding book...explores the connections between distributed computation and topology in detail...systematically organizes material that previously was only available across a collection of conference and journal publications with inconsistent notations and terminology..."--**Computing Reviews, ***Distributed Computing Through Combinatorial Topology*

"...there has not been a monograph that comprehensively covers the intersection of topology and distributed computing...This book thus finds its place for filling precisely this niche, and will be welcomed by readers..."*--**Computing Reviews,*July 24 2014

"In Distributed Computing, the modern mathematical field of Combinatorial Topology finally finds a natural application space. This book elucidates this intriguing connection through a series of well thought out examples, making complex computational phenomena and the deep theorems seem intuitive even to the beginner. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in the fundamentals of computing, since asynchrony, the key phenomena this book explains, is bound to dominate computation and communication in years to come."--**Prof. Nir Shavit, Professor of Computer Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA**

“Written by the leading experts in this area, this book is a unique endeavor

covering the exciting topic of understanding distributed computing through topology.

The book will appeal to researchers in distributed computing and to mathematicians.”

--**Prof. Hagit Attiya, Professor of Computer Science, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology**

“This book is a major contribution to distributed computing, integrated with algebraic

topology. Based on the seminal work of the authors, it represents a collection of the most

up-to-date results in the field, presented in a very progressive manner, from intuitions

to detailed proofs and connections to fundamental mathematical concepts.”--**Éric Goubault, cea list and École Polytechnique**
