Rapid advances in communications technology and the proliferation of inexpensive PCs and workstations have created a wide avenue for Distributed Computing Systems to move into mainstream computing. A Distributed Computing System (DCS) consists of a number of PCs or workstations interconnected through PPP, LAN or WAN. These systems provide a higher performance, better reliability and throughput over centralized mainframe systems. Clearly, the authors have a set of M tasks connected in some fashion and a heterogeneous DCS composed of N computers of different capabilities. Tasks of a given application require certain computer resources (memory, processor and communication link). Indeed, computers and communication resources in the system are also capacitated.
