9780818651724: Communication and Computer Networks: Modelling with discrete-time queues

This book presents a unified approach to developing accurate discrete-time models of communication and computer networks, using discrete-time queuing theory and approximation techniques to obtain solutions. The first chapter outlines the basic aims and philosophy of the book and introduces discrete-time queues at the simplest possible level. The chapters that follow cover probability theory and discrete-time Markov chains, delve into discrete-time queues and queuing networks, and focus on applications for satellite and local area networks. In addition, the book gives examples of specific modeling techniques, and covers handling statistically different users, finite channel delays, timing delays, and unsolvable traffic equations.

From the Back Cover:

This book is concerned exclusively with discrete-time queues and their applications to the performance modeling of communication and computer networks. Since most modern networks operate on the basis of time slotting, and transmit information in fixed length (packets or cells), it thus becomes natural to model such networks in discrete-time by associating a time slot in a physical network with the unit time in the corresponding discrete-time model. The book shows how, in this way, very accurate models that faithfully reproduce the stochastic behaviour of a communication or computer network can be constructed.

The treatment is self contained, and progresses from basic probability theory and discrete-time queueing networks. These latter are applied to model the performance of numerous wide area satellite networks and local area networks, ranging in complexity from simple Aloha schemes to the timed token protocol of the FDDI network. The main objective of this book is to present a unified method for modeling any network access protocol as a discrete-time queueing network and t develop efficient solution techniques for these models. A significant number of the models and their solutions which are included have not previously appeared in the open literature.

The text should prove useful to practitioners and researchers concerned with communication and computer network performance modeling, or anyone wanting a sound understanding of the application of discrete-time technique to this subject area.

About the Author:

Michael Woodward is currently a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Loughborough University of Technology, U.K. He obtained a first class honours degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Nottingham, U.K., in 1967, and was awarded a Ph.D at the same institution in 1971 for research into decomposition of sequential logic systems. He currently teaches both undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Software Engineering, Digital Communications, and Communication and Computer Networks, and has had over fifty research papers published in these and related areas. His present research interests include discrete-time queueing systems and the performance modeling of ATM networks.
Dr. Woodward is a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, and is Chartered Mathematician.
