Can you please explain 'coherent'?



The study of distributed algorithms has developed over the past 15 years into a fairly coherent field. The general style of work in this field is more or less as follows.


Lynch's Distributed Algorithms

One field where everything links together and has an overall structure.

As opposed to lots of small areas which don't appear to be linked.


(think of a laser, coherent light with all the photons doing the same thing, and incoherent light with a mess of photons all doing their own thing)
