Contents Basic Tools of Probabilistic Modelling -- The Queue with Server of Walking Type and Its Applications to Computer System Modelling -- Queueing Network Models -- Queueing Networks with Multiple Classes of Positive and Negative Customers and Product Form Solution -- Markov-Modulated Queues -- Diffusion Approximation Methods for General Queueing Networks -- Approximate Decomposition and Iterative Techniques for Closed Model Solution -- Synthesis Problems in Single-Resource Systems: Characterisation and Control of Achievable Performance -- Control of Performance in Mutliple-Resource Systems -- A Queue with Server of Walking Type
Summary Analysis and Synthesis of Computer Systems presents a broad overview of methods that are used to evaluate the performance of computer systems and networks, manufacturing systems, and interconnected services systems. Aside from a highly readable style that rigorously addresses all subjects, this second edition includes new chapters on numerical methods for queueing models and on G-networks, the latter being a new area of queuing theory that one of the authors has pioneered. --
This book will have a broad appeal to students, practitioners and researchers in several different areas, including practicing computer engineers as well as computer science and engineering students. --Book Jacket
