Harrison, Peter G., Patel, Naresh M.
With the advent of communication networks of staggering complexity, and new generations of parallel computers, sophisticated models and techniques have been developed to evaluate their performance. This book presents the latest techniques for performance modelling to guide designers in their quest for efficiency. Highlights of the book include: An in-depth study queueing network models and algorithms for computing performance measures. Unique presentation of recent results in the analysis of blocking problems, maximum entropy methods, time delay distributions and switching networks. A self-contained presentation of relevant stochastic process theory. A wealth of exercises and sample solutions With its balance between theoretical issues and practical applications, the book will be invaluable for network engineers and system designers, as well as for students in computer science and engineering taking courses in performance modelling or queueing network analysis. 0201544199B04062001Harrison, Peter G. is the author of 'Performance Modelling of Communication Networks and Computer Architectures' with ISBN 9780201544190 and ISBN 0201544199.
