robustness

Erlang literature mentions linked processes to alert one process if
another signals an exit, and heartbeat processes to react if the local
node stops.

Is there a common Erlang approach to dealing with loss of a remote
node?

How does a set of networked nodes know, for example, if one of them
suddenly ceases to function (loses power, etc.) without sending any
exit signals?
