Multi-resource allocation with unknown participants
We define the problem of multi-resource allocation, which is an extension of the dining philosophers problem. We apply this problem to systems where participants (here called clients) are unknown. We propose a solution for 2-resource allocation in static networks, then, explain how to modify our protocol to handle client dynamicity. Extend our solution to handle larger resource requests is let as a future work.
