Abstract: Computer Networks and Systems book is a basic guide for network engineers engaged in performance evaluation of Computer Network Systems. The most striking feature of the book is that it provides a comprehensive package of various aspects related to queuing theory, markovian queues in equilibrium, Liltle’s law, reversibility transient analysis and numerical solutions to various statistical models. This books serves both theoretical as well as practical aspects of computer network engineering.
To create good foundation for developing queuing model, the author has provided a separate chapter on discrete time queuing system related to arrival processes, queuing model, case studies of various network queuing models. Similarly for beginners of Computer Networks the book provides 16 problems for self study/practice. As such, it ensures better grasping of the subject and problem solving.
The book contains survey of continuous and discrete time models and provides a road- map for evolving business solution of Computer Network problems. The book contains following chapters.
1) The Queueing Paradigm;
2) Single Queuing Systems;
3) Networks of Queues;
4) Numerical Solution of Models;
5) Stochastic Petri Nest;
6) Discrete Time Queueing Systems;
7) Network Traffic Modeling Appendix: Probability Theory
This book is highly recommended for undergraduate students of Electronics and Communication Engineering and other service providers/consultants dealing with queuing theory and performance evaluation of Computer Networks Systems and message switching systems..
