The φ accrual failure detector.

pp. 66–78, Florianópolis, Brazil, October 2004.
(Note: This paper is the basis of the failure detection mechanism in the Apache Cassandra and the Akka frameworks. For some sad and weird reason, the editorial board of IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing had decided that the topic was outside its scope...)
