This book presents the algebraic fundamentals of switching theory with applications to the field of telecommunications. In addition, applications are described in such areas as multi-processor interconnections, hardware sorting, fast Fourier transform, and convolution decoding. By linking switching theory to industrial practice throughout the book, readers benefit from exposure to more than a pure mathematical treatment.
Algebraic Switching Theory and Broadband Applications is unique in its focus on developing an algebraic foundation for switching networks. This focus will be of great value to researchers and distinguishes it from others in the field.
* More than 250 illustrations
* Most relevant mathematical tools are all provided
* Parallel attention to applications and implemental feasibility throughout
* Some applications to parallel computing, multi-processor interconnection, and hardware sorting besides telecommunications
* Topics follow a continuous flow, motivate one another, and pin down basic principles, useful techniques, and feasible designs
* The book contains a large amount of original results accrued during 1986-99 that have not been previously published

As the telecommunications industry evolves from mechanical contact to electromechanical relay and from analog telephone voice to digital broadband communications, the demand for bandwidth in both transmission and switching is constantly growing . Advancement in fiber optics technology has created ample transmission capacity, while switching, the technology for putting transmission to flexible use, has fallen behind.
Algebraic Switching Theory and Broadband Applications attempts to develop an algebraic foundation for switching networks. Using more than 250 illustrations and a large number of original, previously unpublished results accrued during 1986-1999, the author establishes a direct link between abstract algebraic principles and broadband switching designs. This link serves as a rudimentary platform for further development of switching algebra and for the integration with algebra in parallel computing, coding, etc.
Throughout the abstract mathematical developments in the book, parallel attention is paid to implementability, including VLSI considerations. The basic principles, useful techniques, and feasible designs found in this important book will be extremely helpful to communication engineers and computer scientists in the area of parallel processing, as well as to software engineers involved with broadband e-commerce.
