A solution to a maximal independent set problem

Article previosly published on Doc Madhattan. A distributed system is a set of autonomous computer that comunicate in a network in order to reach a certain goal. So a maximal independent set (MIS) is a distributed system's subject. But, what we intend for MIS? In graph theory, a maximal independent set or maximal stable set is an independent set that is not a subset of any other independent set. Read more
