In this report, we formalize the self-stabilization problem as it pertains to the C2BMC, in addition to highlighting some of key features of the C2BMC that distinguish it from general-purpose distributed systems. We then describe a sub-area of self-stabilization known as the leader election problem, pointing out the issues tied to the re-establishment of an ABM command and control structure in the event of system faults. We performed an initial survey of a small sample of recent articles from the open literature on leader election algorithms; we found that there are over 10,000 articles on the leader election problem. The report includes a critique of each of the surveyed articles. Our report concludes with recommendations for both a framework of a leader election protocol that could be applied to the C2BMC and specific directions of further research to be conducted.-- p. v.
