Title:?? Internet Performance
Speaker : Professor Alain Jean-Marie, University of Montpellier, France (formerly INRIA)

This course is an introduction to some techniques of Performance Evaluation, the art of computing performance measures of discrete-event systems. The applications will focus on the performance of communication networks, Internet in particular.
The first part will give a basic treatment of classical and modern Queueing Theory: calculus of Markov chains, modeling of traffic sources, and the computation of average/maximal queue lengths and waiting times for simple queues and queueing networks.
The second part will discuss models for various aspects of the performance of the Internet and its applications: flow control, congestion avoidance and TCP, traffic shaping, forward error correction, differential services, performance of HTTP.

About the Speaker:

Alain Jean-Marie received the Matrise Es-Sciences in Mathematics, and the Doctorat de 3me cycle, from the University of Paris XI at Orsay, in 1985 and 1987 respectively. During 1988-89, he was a Post-Doctoral fellow at the University of Maryland. From 1987 to 1999, he has been a member of the performance evaluation group at INRIA, Sophia Antipolis, France. He is now professor at the University of Montpellier, France. His research interests include modeling and performance evaluation for real-time systems and communication networks, control theory, analysis of algorithms and parallel computing.
