Modeling and Performance Analysis with Simulation

This course gives an introduction to modeling, analysis, and simulation of computer and networking systems. The focus of the course is on discrete-event simulation. Simulation is widely used to evaluate systems in general, computer and communication networks in particular. In this course we will emphasize the simulation of wired and wireless communication systems. Some topics of the course are:

  • Model design
  • Implementation of a discrete-event simulator (simulation kernel)
  • Design of experiments (DoE)
  • Input modeling
  • Random numbers and random variates
  • Evaluation of simulation results
  • Simulation packages for network simulation
