F. P. Kelly, Stan Zachary, Ilze Ziedins
Clarendon, 1996 - Mathematics - 366 pages
The theory of stochastic networks is an important and rapidly developing research area, driven in part by important industrial applications in the design and control of modern communications and manufacturing networks. This volume is a collections of invited papers written by some of the leading researchers in this field, and provides a comprehensive survey of current research and the very latest developments. With contributions from most of the world's foremost researchers the areas covered include the mathematical modelling and the optimal control of queueing and loss networks, and the statistical modelling and analysis of network data. Also containing a comprehensive and up-to-date bibliography of the statistical literature on long-range dependence and self-similarity in network traffic and other scientific and engineering applications this book will suit researchers, research institutes and industry throughout the world.
