Abstract
It is our position that the property of stabilization is desir-
able for distributed, networked systems to deal with unan-
ticipated faults. In this article, we provide a gentle intro-
duction to the concept of stabilization, respond to various
criticisms and misconceptions about its use, and suggest
practical approaches for its design.
1 Motivation for Stabilization
Stabilization is the branch of computing that focuses on how
systems deal with arbitrary state corruption [13, 19, 11].
