abstract= "In general, most deadlocks take form of cycles (in database
systems) and knots (in communication systems). Boukerche and
Tropper have proposed a distributed algorithm to detect
cycles and knots in generic graphs. Their algorithm has a
message complexity of 2m vs. (at least) 4m for the Chandy
and Misra algorithm, where m is the number of links in the
graph, and requires O (n log n) bits of memory, where n is
the number of nodes. We have implemented Boukerche's
algorithm. Our implementation of the algorithm is based on
the construction of processes of the CSP model. The
implementation was done using JCSP, an implementation of CSP
for Java."
