This paper provides a formal specification of the distribution and fault-tolerance mechanisms of eJason. The eJason programming language is an extension to the agent-oriented programming language Jason that introduces native support for the transparent distribution of agents as well as fault-tolerance mechanisms. This formal semantics is presented from a multiagent system perspective. It unambiguously describes both the possible evolution of the distributed multi- agent system over time and the different instruments for fault detection and fault recovery, hence exposing their strengths. This specification may serve as a reference for researchers interested in the inclusion of similar mechanisms in agent-oriented programming languages.
