CSE-844 Performance Analysis of Networks
Campus RCMS
Programs PG
Session Spring Semester 2017
Course Title Performance Analysis of Networks
Course Code CSE-844
Credit Hours 3-0
Course Objectives The course applies the concepts of available modeling techniques, including mathematical methods like Markov chains and Petri nets, and simulation methods. Models are usually too large to be handled by a computer system, and, due to model complexity, model development is very time consuming. Further, the course will present the methods for complexity reduction, which considerably reduces development time. In addition, a strategy for developing a generator for automatic model derivation is also the part of this course.
Detail Content After the course the student will be able to analyses design, optimize and evaluate modern day cellular and multistage interconnection network using both simulation and mathematical models.
