∗ coverage of all major techniques of performance evaluation
∗ non–mathematical problem solving approach, explaining and illustrating performance evaluation techniques
∗ assessment techniques for stochastic processes, single server queues, networks of queues and stochastic Petri nets
∗ numerous application studies, including token ring systems, client–server systems, and wide–area networks
∗ substantial number of practical exercises and examples.
For computer or electrical engineers who design and implement computer communication systems, this book provides an excellent overview of the methods and techniques used to construct and solve performance models. It is also a valuable source of information for postgraduate students in computer science and related subjects. Visit Our Web Page! [external URL]
