Title:Input Modeling with Phase-Type Distributions and Markov Models [electronic resource] : Theory and Applications
Author(s): Peter Buchholz
Jan Kriege
Iryna Felko
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Containing a summary of several recent results on Markov-based input modeling in a coherent notation, this book introduces and compares algorithms for parameter fitting and gives an overview of available software tools in thearea. Due to progress mad e in recent years with respect to new algorithms to generate PH distributions and Markovian arrival processes from measured data, the models outlined are useful alternatives to other distributions or stochasticprocesses used for input modeling. Graduate s tudents and researchers in applied probability, operations research and computer science along with practitioners using simulation or analytical models for performance analysis and capacityplanning will find the unified notation and up-to-date results pre sented useful. Input modeling is the key step in model based system analysis to adequately describe the load of a system using stochastic models. The goal of inputmodeling is to find a stochastic model to describe a sequence ofmeasurements from a real sys tem to model for example the inter-arrival times of packets in a computer network or failure times of components in a manufacturing plant.Typical application areas are performance and dependability analysis of computer systems, communication networks, log istics or manufacturing systems but also the analysis of biological or chemical reaction networks and similarproblems. Often the measured values have a high variability and are correlated. Its been known for a long time that Markov based models like phase type distributions or Markovian arrival processes are very general and allow one tocapture even complex behaviors. However, the parameterization of these models results often in a complex and non-linear optimization problem. Only recently, several new re sults about the modeling capabilities of Markov based models andalgorithms to fit the parameters of those models have been published

Title:Advances in Network Analysis and its Applications [electronic resource]
Author(s): Evangelos Kranakis
Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:As well as highlighting potentially useful applications for network analysis, this volume identifies new targets for mathematical research that promise to provide insights into network systems theory as well as facilitating thecross-fertilization of ideas between sectors. Focusing on financial, security and social aspects of networking, the volume adds to the growing body of evidence showing that network analysis has applications to transportation,communication, health, finance, and social policy mor e broadly. It provides powerful models for understanding the behavior of complex systems that, in turn, will impact numerous cutting-edge sectors in science and engineering, such aswireless communication, network security, distributed computing and social networking, financial analysis, and cyber warfare. The volume offers an insider' s view of cutting-edge research in network systems, including methodologieswith immense potential for interdisciplinary application. The contributors have all presented mate rial at a series of workshops organized on behalf of Canadas MITACS initiative, which funds projects and study grants inmathematics for information technology and complex systems. These proceedings include papers from workshops on financial networks, netw ork security and cryptography, and social networks. MITACS has shown that the partlyghettoized nature of network systems research has led to duplicated work in discrete fields, and thus this initiative has the potential to save time and accelerate the pac e of research in a number of areas of network systemsresearch

Note:The connected dominating set (CDS)has been a classic subject studied in graph theory since 1975. It has been discovered inrecent years thatCDS has important applications in communication networks especially in wirelessnetworks as a virtual backbone. Motivated from those applications, many papers have been published in the literature during last 15 years. Now, the connected dominating set has become a hot research topic in computer science. Thiswork isa valuable reference for researchers in computer s cience and operations research, especially in areas of theoretical computer science, computer communication networks, combinatorial optimization, industrial engineering, anddiscrete mathematics. The book may also be used as a text in a graduate seminar fo r PhD students. Readers should have a basic knowledge of computational complexity and combinatorial optimization. In this book, the authors present thestate-of-the-art in the study of connected dominating sets. Each chapter is devoted to one problem, and consists of three parts: motivation and overview, problem complexity analysis, and approximation algorithm designs. The text isdesigned togive the reader a clear understanding of thebackground, formulation, existing important research results, and open pr oblems. Topics include minimum CDS, routing-cost constrained CDS, weighted CDS, directed CDS, SCDS(strongly connected dominating set), WCDS (weakly connected dominating set), CDS-partition, virtual backbone in wireless networks, convertor placement in opt ical networks, coverage in wireless sensor networks, and more

Note:Matrix-analytic and related methods have become recognized as an important and fundamental approach for the mathematical analysis of general classes of complex stochastic models. Research in the area of matrix-analytic andrelated methods seeks to dis cover underlying probabilistic structures intrinsic in such stochastic models, develop numerical algorithms for computing functionals (e.g., performance measures) of the underlying stochastic processes, andapply these probabilistic structures and/or compu tational algorithms within a wide variety of fields. This volume presents recent research results on: the theory, algorithms and methodologies concerning matrix-analytic and relatedmethods in stochastic models and the application of matrix-analytic and re lated methods in various fields, which includes but is not limited to computer science and engineering, communication networks and telephony, electrical andindustrial engineering, operations research, management science, financial and risk analysis, and b io-statistics. These research studies provide deep insights and understanding of the stochastic models of interest from amathematicsandapplications perspective, as well as identify directions for future research

Note:Born after World War II, large-scale experimental high-energy physics (HEP) has found itself limited ever since by available accelerator, detector and computing technologies. Accordingly, HEP has made significant contributions tothe development of th ese fields, more often than not driving their innovations. The invention of the World Wide Web at CERN is merely the best-known example out of many. This book is the first comprehensive account to trace the historyof this pioneering spirit in the field of computing technologies. It covers everything up to and including the present-day handling of the huge demands imposed upon grid and distributed computing by full-scale LHC operations -operations which have for years involved many thousands of collaborati ng members worldwide and accordingly provide the original and natural testbed for grid computing concepts. This book takes the reader on a guided tour encompassingall relevant topics, including programming languages, software engineering, large databases, the Web, and grid- and cloud computing. The important issue of intellectual property regulations for distributed software engineering andcomputing is also addressed. Aptly, the book closes with a visionary chapter of what may lie ahead. Approachable and requiring only basic understanding of physics and computer sciences, this book is intended for both education andresearch

Note:Complex Networks is a newly emerging field with applications in a variety of domains, such as communication networks, engineering networks, social networks, and biological networks. There has been an explosive growth of researchon complex real-world networks, a theme that is becoming pervasive in many disciplines ranging from mathematics and computer science to the social and biological sciences. Optimization of complex networks with real-world applicationsrequires a deep understanding of the interpl ay between the dynamics of the physical network and the information dynamics within the network. The Handbook of Optimization in Complex Networks: Theory and Applications provides the basictheory of these networks with several new mathematical approaches and optimization techniques to design and analyze dynamic complex networks. The volume features a wide range of applications and optimization problems derived fromresearch areas such as computer science, operations research, cellular and molecular chemis try, brain physiology, epidemiology, and ecology. This volume, as well as its companion (The Handbook of Optimization in Complex Networks:Communication and Social Networks ISBN: 978-1-4614-0856-7) is an excellent resource for graduate students, researcher s, and practitioners who wish to learn about the most up to date theory and applications on optimization of complexreal-world networks.

Note:Group Testing Theory in Network Security explores a new branch of group testing theory with an application which enhances research results in network security. This brief presents new solutions on several advanced network securityproblems and mathema tical frameworks based on the group testing theory, specifically denial-of-service and jamming attacks. A new application of group testing, illustrated in this text, requires additional theories, such as sizeconstraint group testing and connected group te sting. Included in this text is a chapter devoted to discussing open problems and suggesting new solutions for various network security problems. This text also exemplifies the connectionbetween mathematical approaches and practical applications to group testing theory in network security. This work will appeal to a multidisciplinary audience with interests in computer communication networks, optimization, andengineering

Title:Game Theory for Control of Optical Networks [electronic resource]
Author(s): Lacra Pavel
Date:2012
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Optical networks epitomize complex communication systems, and they comprise the Internets infrastructural backbone. The first of its kind, this book develops the mathematical framework needed from a control perspective totackle various game-theoretic al problems in optical networks. In doing so, it aims to help design control algorithms that optimally allocate the resources of these networks. The books main focus is a control-theoretic analysis ofdynamic systems arising from game formulations with non -separable player utilities and with coupled as well as propagated (modified) constraints. Compared with the conventional static optimization approach, this provides a morerealistic model of how optical networks operate. Its methods and techniques could b e used to improve networks functionality and adaptivity, potentially enhancing thespeed and reliability of communications throughout the world.With its fresh problem-solving approach, Game Theory for Control of Optical Networks is a unique resource for re searchers, practitioners, and graduate students in applied mathematics and systems/control engineering, as well as those inelectrical and computer engineering

Note:Mathematical Aspects of Network Routing Optimization provides a thorough introduction to the subject of algorithms for network routing and focuses on multicast and wireless ad hoc systems. The modern world is connected throughlarge-scale, computation al networked systems such as the Internet and because of the ever-advancing technology of networking, efficient algorithms have become increasingly necessary to solve some of the problems developing in thisarea. This work focuses on computational issues arising from the process of optimizing network routes, such as the quality of resulting links and their reliability. Algorithms are key to understanding the protocols underlyingmulticast routing. The main objective in the text is to derive efficient algor ithms, with or without the guarantee of approximation, that can be applied to address these problems. Notes have been provided for basic topics such as graphtheory and linear programming to assist those who are not fully acquainted with the mathematical t opics presented throughout the book. This book is designed for graduate students, researchers, and professionals interested inunderstanding the algorithmic and mathematical ideas behind routing in computer networks and network algorithms

Note:This volume covers recent developments in the design, operation, and management of telecommunication and computer network systems in performance engineering and addresses issues of uncertainty, robustness, and risk. Uncertaintyregarding loading and s ystem parameters leads to challenging optimization and robustness issues. Stochastic modeling combined with optimization theory ensures the optimum end-to-end performance of telecommunication or computer networksystems. In view of the diverse design optio ns possible, supporting models have many adjustable parameters and choosing the best set for a particular performance objective is delicate and time-consuming. An optimization based approachdetermines the optimal possible allocation for these parameters. Researchers and graduate students working at the interface of telecommunications and operations research will benefit from this book. Due to the practical approach, thisbook will also serve as a reference tool for scientists and engineers in telecommunica tion and computer networks who depend upon optimization

Title:Structural Analysis of Complex Networks [electronic resource]
Author(s): Matthias Dehmer
Date:2011
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Because of the increasing complexity and growth of real-world networks, their analysis by using classical graph-theoretic methods is oftentimes a difficult procedure. As a result, there is a strong need to combine graph-theoreticmethods with mathemat ical techniques from other scientific disciplines, such as machine learning and information theory, in order to analyze complex networks more adequately. Filling a gap in literature, this self-contained bookpresents theoretical and application-oriented re sults to structurally explore complex networks. The work focuses not only on classical graph-theoretic methods, but also demonstrates the usefulness of structural graph theory as a toolfor solving interdisciplinary problems. Special emphasis is given to m ethods related to the following areas: * Applications to biology, chemistry, linguistics, and data analysis * Graph colorings * Graph polynomials * Informationmeasures for graphs * Metrical properties of graphs * Partitions and decompositions * Quantitati ve graph measures Structural Analysis of Complex Networks is suitable for a broad, interdisciplinary readership of researchers,practitioners, and graduate students in discrete mathematics, statistics, computer science, machine learning, artificial intelli gence, computational and systems biology, cognitive science, computational linguistics, and mathematicalchemistry. The book may be used as a supplementary textbook in graduate-level seminars on structural graph analysis, complex networks, or network-based machine learning methods

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents recently developed methodologies that utilize quantized information in system identification and explores their potential in extending control capabilities for systems with limited sensor information ornetworked systems. The result s of these methodologies can be applied to signal processing and control design of communication and computer networks, sensor networks, mobile agents, coordinated data fusion, remote sensing, telemedicine,and other fields in which noise-corrupted quantiz ed data need to be processed. Providing a comprehensive coverage of quantized identification, the book treats linear and nonlinear systems, as well as time-invariant and time-varyingsystems. The authors examine independent and dependent noises, stochastic - and deterministic-bounded noises, and also noises with unknown distribution functions. The key methodologies combine empirical measures andinformation-theoretic approaches to derive identification algorithms, provide convergence and convergence speed, e stablish efficiency of estimation, and explore input design, threshold selection and adaptation, and complexity analysis.System Identification with Quantized Observations is an excellent resource for graduate students, systems theorists, control engineers , applied mathematicians, as well as practitioners who use identification algorithms in their work.Selected material from the book may be used in graduate-level courses on system identification

Title:An Introduction to Queueing Theory and Matrix-Analytic Methods [electronic resource]
Author(s): L Breuer
D Baum
Date:2005
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The textbook contains the records of a two-semester course on queueing theory, including an introduction to matrix-analytic methods. The course is directed to last year undergraduate and first year graduate students of appliedprobability and computer science, who have already completed an introduction to probability theory. Its purpose is to present material that is close enough to concrete queueing models and their applications, while providing a soundmathematical foundation for their analysis. A pr ominent part of the book will be devoted to matrix-analytic methods. This is a collection of approaches which extend the applicability of Markov renewal methods to queueing theory byintroducing a finite number of auxiliary states. For the embedded Markov chains this leads to transition matrices in block form resembling the structure of classical models. Matrix-analytic methods have become quite popular in queueingtheory during the last twenty years. The intention to include these in a students' introducti on to queueing theory has been the main motivation for the authors to write the present book. Its aim is a presentation of the most importantmatrix-analytic concepts like phase-type distributions, Markovian arrival processes, the GI/PH/1 and BMAP/G/1 queu es as well as QBDs and discrete time approaches
