CSC 579 Introduction to Computer Performance Modeling
3 Credit Hours
(also offered as ECE 579)
This course focuses on the mathematical techniques and procedures required in performance modeling of computer and communication systems. The major mathematical elements of applied probability, stochastic processes, especially Markov chains, and elementary queuing theory, including an introduction to queuing networks, will be discussed. Simulation techniques will also be covered.
