The paper presents a method in which a set of reading and writing agents concurrently read and update the global state of the network. In addition to the consistency of the snapshot and the reset states, our protocol preserves the atomicity of the reads and writes, despite the fact these operations are non-blocking. Potential applications include the design of multi-agent protocols for self-stabilization, self-healing and adaptation
