Network Simulation and Modeling

Provides an introduction to probability, statistics, and discrete event simulation. Topics include survey of discrete and continuous simulation languages, elementary queuing theory, discrete and continuous random variable selection applied to computer networks. Information is used to generate random variables to study network traffic, network utilization, response time, throughput, capacity, and queuing delay for discrete event simulation models. Emphasis is placed on student design development. An introduction to the use of simulation software is included. Prerequisites: MA-128 or MA-345 and MA-261 and TC-110 or Equivalent. (2-2-3)
