Full Description
The development of an information theory for stochastic service guarantee analysis has been identified as a grand challenge for future networking research. Towards it, Stochastic Network Calculus, the probabilistic version or generalization of the (deterministic) Network Calculus, has been recognized by researchers as a crucial step. This book is devoted to a comprehensive treatment of this active research area, which covers the results from the authors as well as other researchers in this area. This book presents an overall picture for the state of the art of stochastic QoS analysis research by providing basic introductory material on the subject as well as discussing the most recent research in the area. Topics covered include Traffic Models and Server Models for Stochastic Network Calculus, and Independent Case Analysis and its applications. Researchers and graduates in the area of performance evaluation of computer communication networks will benefit hugely from this comprehensive volume.
