About the Paper: Gossip based protocols are great for sharing information across large networks. A naive approach to gossip relies on broadcasting new messages to all nodes from the node who learned it; since this obviously doesn't scale well, partial views are the answer. HyParView is one such partial view algorithm. We'll look at what makes it different and how it can help improve the resiliency of the gossip protocol.
