Topology embedding enables one to execute a protocol designed for a specific (virtual) topology on another (real) topology by embedding the virtual topology on the real topology. In this paper, we propose a self-stabilizing emulation technique that provides reliable communication on a virtual topology in the presence of transient faults in real topology. The proposed protocol improves the execution slowdown of previous two protocols [19, 20] and provides adaptive message delivery delay on the emulated channels, which is a new type of adaptability against transient faults.
