Queueing Networks and Markov Chains: Modeling and Performance Evaluation with Computer Science Applications

Queueing Networks and Markov Chains: Modeling and Performance Evaluation with Computer Science Applications

Stefan Greiner, Hermann de Meer


seriously acclaimed textual content for machine functionality analysis--now in its moment edition

the second one variation of this now-classic textual content offers a present and thorough remedy of queueing structures, queueing networks, non-stop and discrete-time Markov chains, and simulation. completely up-to-date with new content material, in addition to new difficulties and labored examples, the textual content deals readers either the idea and sensible information had to behavior functionality and reliability reviews of laptop, verbal exchange, and production systems.

beginning with simple likelihood concept, the textual content units the root for the extra advanced subject matters of queueing networks and Markov chains, utilizing purposes and examples to demonstrate key issues. Designed to interact the reader and construct useful functionality research talents, the textual content contains a wealth of difficulties that replicate real challenges.

New good points of the second one version include:
* bankruptcy interpreting simulation equipment and applications
* functionality research functions for instant, net, J2EE, and Kanban systems
* most up-to-date fabric on non-Markovian and fluid stochastic Petri nets, in addition to resolution innovations for Markov regenerative processes
* up to date discussions of recent and renowned functionality research instruments, together with ns-2 and OPNET
* New and present real-world examples, together with DiffServ routers within the net and mobile cellular networks

With the speedily starting to be complexity of desktop and communique platforms, the necessity for this article, which expertly mixes concept and perform, is large. Graduate and complicated undergraduate scholars in computing device technology will locate the broad use of examples and difficulties to be very important in learning either the fundamentals and the wonderful issues of the sector, whereas execs will locate the textual content crucial for constructing platforms that agree to criteria and rules.

Additionally, an answer handbook and an FTP web site with hyperlinks to author-provided information for the ebook can be found for deeper study.
