CS 337 Information Networks

Prerequisite: probability, stochastic systems, network architecture of the Internet and the systems performance. Modeling, experimental design, performance measurement, model development, analytic modeling, single queue facility, networks of queues, stochastic systems, deterministic systems, birth-death model analysis, closed network model, bottleneck, interactive networks, M/M/m queues, M/G/1 priority queues, Markovian queuing model, random numbers, discrete event simulation, verification and validation of simulation models, workload characterization and benchmarks. Also, advanced research papers on using queuing theory for networking systems. The course consists of a final modeling and simulation project on a novel idea that leads to publication
