Keijo Heljanko and Alin Stefanescu. Complexity results for checking distributed implementability. Technical Report 05/2004, Universität Stuttgart, 2004.


We consider the distributed implementability problem as: Given a labeled transition system TS together with a distribution of its actions over a set of processes, does there exist a distributed system over such that its global transition system is `equivalent' to TS? We consider the distributed system models of synchronous products of transition systems [Arn94] and asynchronous automata [Zie87]. In this paper we provide complexity bounds for the above problem with three interpretations of `equivalent': as transition system isomorphism, as language equivalence, and as bisimilarity. In particular, we solve problems left open in [CMT99,Mor99].
