Title: MinPaxos: Simplifying Log Replication for Fault Tolerance
Authors: Lin, Andrew

Class Year: 2021
Abstract: The Paxos consensus algorithm contains a theoretical simplicity that becomes unrecognizable in functional implementations of Multi-Paxos for fault tolerance. Attempts have been made to simplify Multi-Paxos algorithms for teachability, but such consensus algorithm simplifications, while effective, have even less of a relation to Paxos. MinPaxos attempts to use the properties of Paxos to create an implementation of Multi-Paxos that can provide log replication for fault tolerance without losing sight of the simplicity of the Paxos algorithm.
