Abstract
An ongoing debate among theoreticians of distributed systems concerns the global time
issue. The basic question seems to be to what extent does a model with global time re ect
the 'real' behavior of a distributed system. The assumption of the existence of global
time simpli es the analysis of distributed algorithms to an extent that makes it almost
