A fault-tolerant and practically stabilizing simulation of an atomic register is presented. The simulation works in asynchronous message-passing systems, and allows a minority of processes to crash. The simulation stabilizes in a practically stabilizing manner, by reaching a long execution in which it runs correctly. A key element in the simulation is a new combinatorial construction of a bounded labeling scheme accommodating arbitrary labels, including those not generated by the scheme itself.
- Message passing
- Shared memory
- Single writer multiple reader register
