We present a space- and time-optimal self-stabilizing algorithm, SSDS, for a given synchronization problem on asynchronous oriented chains. SSDS is uniform and works under the unfair distributed daemon. From SSDS we derive solutions for the local mutual exclusion and distributed sorting. Algorithm SSDS can also be used to obtain optimal space solutions for other problems such as broadcasting, leader election, and mutual exclusion.
