It is a prestigious American medical school located in the Longwood Medical Area of the Mission Hill neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. ) and Teich (electrical and computer engineering, Boston U.)--have the ability to represent physical and biological phenomena from information-packet arrivals on a computer network to action-potential occurrences in a neural preparation. Writing for students and researchers across the sciences, they introduce fractals and chaos and examples of point processes. They then demonstrate their integration and set forth mathematical formulations for several important fractal-based point-process families. They further offer chapters on operations that modify fractal-based point processes, analysis and estimation techniques for such processes, and computer network traffic as an illustration of the approaches and models discussed earlier. Readers are assumed to have a strong mathematical background and a solid grasp of probability theory probability theory

Branch of mathematics that deals with analysis of random events. Probability is the numerical assessment of likelihood on a scale from 0 (impossibility) to 1 (absolute certainty).
