This course deals with both theory and application of fundamental and advanced queueing models. Fundamental models include M/M/1 model and its variants, M/G/1 and G/M/1 models, bulk arrival and bulk service processes, and priority queues. The course also deals with open and closed Jackson networks and optimal solving of the capacity assignment problem in different cases. Applications emphasize communication networks and computer operations, but may include examples from different fields as transportation, manufacturing, and the service industry.
The course aims to provide students with ability to apply knowledge and capabilities to understand Queueing Theory and its applications to the modeling and analysis of Telecommunication Networks and Computer Systems.
Specific course objectives are :
- in-depth knowledge of fundamnetal queueing models;
- to be familiar with performance evaluation of queueing systems;
- Apply and extend queueing models to analyze real teleccomunication and computer systems.
Probability Theory and Linear Algebra.
Lectures, discussion groups, tutorials, problem solving, debates, etc.
Lecture notes and PowerPoint presentations covering the course topics will be made available at the page dedicated to the course on the moodle website (SIAF) . To login on moodle, you need to have activated your academy account.
