# Category:Distributed computing problems

Here is a list of articles in the category **Distributed computing problems** of the Computing portal that unifies foundations of mathematics and computations using computers. Problems and challenges related to distributed computing, distributed systems and distributed algorithms, including:

- Computational problems that have been studied in a distributed setting.
- Challenges related to dividing a computational problem into multiple tasks that can be solved in parallel.
- Challenges related to fault-tolerance and synchronisation.

The focus is on formal, mathematical problems. See Category:Distributed computing architecture for software engineering challenges and Category:Applications of distributed computing for real-world applications.
