9781439817414: Models of Network Reliability: Analysis, Combinatorics, and Monte Carlo

Unique in its approach, Models of Network Reliability: Analysis, Combinatorics, and Monte Carlo provides a brief introduction to Monte Carlo methods along with a concise exposition of reliability theory ideas. From there, the text investigates a collection of principal network reliability models, such as terminal connectivity for networks with unreliable edges and/or nodes, network lifetime distribution in the process of its destruction, network stationary behavior for renewable components, importance measures of network elements, reliability gradient, and network optimal reliability synthesis.

Solutions to most principal network reliability problems?including medium-sized computer networks?are presented in the form of efficient Monte Carlo algorithms and illustrated with numerical examples and tables. Written by reliability experts with significant teaching experience, this reader-friendly text is an excellent resource for software engineering, operations research, industrial engineering, and reliability engineering students, researchers, and engineers.

Stressing intuitive explanations and providing detailed proofs of difficult statements, this self-contained resource includes a wealth of end-of-chapter exercises, numerical examples, tables, and offers a solutions manual?making it ideal for self-study and practical use.

Review:

The 13 chapters and three appendixes make the material accessible to readers with a basic background in reliability. ... Formal proofs are minimally presented, the methods are widely supported by examples and exercises, and guidelines for developing computer programs are provided.
?Ron S. Kenett, KPA, Raanana, Israel, in Quality Progress

... a concise and compact book on the subject of how to compute k-terminal reliability of a given communication network, where the edges or links can fail. ... To make a beginner understand the subject matter, the treatment in a chapter starts with examples and leads a reader to the definitions and theorems that are incidental to the explanation of an approach. ... helps in understanding the intricacies involved in the problem of computing network reliability. The concept of spanning trees is used to ensure connectivity of nodes of interest. Other measures of interest in reliability of networks such as component criticality and Birnbaum Importance are also discussed ... students and teachers pursuing reliability of communication reliability will find this book of interest. ...very useful for reliability engineers and those dealing with design of communication networks ... .
?Krishna B. Misra, in Performability Engineering, May 2011, Vol. 7, No. 3
