Along with this, it also explains in detail the various conditions and constraints that must be satisfied between the above mentioned parameters for the realization of a distributed system. Salient features of the Paper: The approach presented in this paper is primarily centered around describing a distributed system in terms of the Clock Condition and the total ordering of events. An event is the process of sending or receiving a message either within a process or between distinct processes. Hence a distributed system is charecterized by events occurring between multiple, spatially separated processes. Another important aspect of the paper is that no physical time is associated to the clocks. A clock
