Abstract : Stabilizing distributed systems expect all the component processes to run predefined programs that are externally mandated. In Internet scale systems, this is unrealistic, since each process may have selfish interests and motives related to maximizing its own payoff. This paper formulates the problem of selfish stabilization that shows how competition blends with cooperation in a stabilizing environment.
