Description

For courses in Performance Analysis and Design of Communication Networks (PC) offered in departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Also appropriate for courses in Systems Engineering and Operations Research.

Kobayashi and Mark present the most up-to-date analytical models, simulation techniques, and computational algorithms useful for performance evaluation of complex systems – including computer systems, communication networks, transportation systems, and manufacturing systems. Broader in scope than other texts, this book provides more in-depth coverage of topics such as computational algorithms and approximations. It appeals to students with a background or interest in a wide range of areas, including systems analysis or telecommunication networks.
