Abstract : The maintenance of consistency in a distributed database system environment presents a number of vexing problems to the database system designer. This is more so the case when the database system contains replicated data and is also designed to provide a high degree of availability under conditions of network partitioning. This thesis investigates the use of a proposed adaptive concurrency control algorithm as a possible alternative solution for a number of the problems facing the database system designer in the areas of concurrency control, partitioned networks, and long-lived transactions.
