## Introduction to queueing networksAs leading authorities in this area, the authors' focus on the practical approach where aspects of queueing theory are applied directly to communications systems and networks. Included is a series of exercises and examples at the end of each chapter as well as a fully annotated bibliography. This book is of particular interest to communications and computer engineers and is essential reading for network. managers and administrators. It will also benefit students and researchers in the area of networks, as well as Web server administrators and personal computer users. Visit Our Web Page! http: //www.wiley.com/ |
