This article describes ongoing joint research collaboration between

the Yamashita Group Theoretical Computer Science Laboratory

at the University of Kyushu, Fukuoka (KyuDai), and the Algorithm

and Bioinformatics group in the Department of Informatics at King's

College London (KCL).


In the academic year 2014-15 this research saw three joint

publications in computer science conferences. The topic of the work

was on consensus and evolution of periodic behaviour in distributed

systems. The conferences are SSS 2015, SIROCCO 2015 and DISC 2015.


The visit of KyuDai PhD student Takeharu Shiraga to King's College

for an extended period during early 2015 contributed greatly to

this research output. Members of the KyuDai group, and a group from

Tokyo Institute of Technology attended and contributed to a

workshop on random walks organized by Prof. Colin Cooper (KCL) and

hosted at the Eurandom Institute in the Netherlands during April
