There is an increased interest in using broadcast disks to support mobile access to real-time databases. However, previous work has only considered the design of real-time immutable broadcast disks, the contents of which do not change over time. This paper considers the design of programs for real-time mutable broadcast disks - broadcast disks whose contents are occasionally updated. Recent scheduling-theoretic results relating to pinwheel scheduling and pfair scheduling are used to design algorithms for the efficient generation of real-time mutable broadcast disk programs.
