The ever-increasing importance of computer networks has brought increased popularity to their study. Unlike other books in the subject, this work provides a balanced approach between technology and mathematical modeling. Important topics include switching elements and fabrics, Ethernet and ALOHA design, a wide variety of queueing models, routing, protocol verification and error codes, and divisible load theory, a new type of modeling that has applications to grids and parallel and distributed processing. The text progresses systematically and covers the necessary basics. Numerous examples at the end of each chapter provide sufficient material for practice and assignments. This well-written text is intended for an undergraduate or graduate course on computer networks or performance evaluation in electrical/computer engineering or computer science.
