An introduction to communication network analysis.


An introduction to communication network analysis.

Kesidis, George.



232 pages




What is really going on behind the modeling and analysis of communications networks? Kesidis gets to the core of it all in this self-contained text on evaluating modeling and performance. He covers both classic (such as queuing theory) and modern (such as pricing) aspects of networking, beginning, mercifully, with a review of elementary probability theory. He then works through Markov chains, including birth-death chains and simulated chains, queuing theory, including queues without losses and stationary queues, local multiplexing, including a description of a game theory framework for multiplexing packet flows, queuing networks with static routing, dynamic routing and routing with incentives, and peer-to-peer file sharing with incentives. Kesidis provides exercises and answers and appendices including terminology and algorithms.
