Book Description Tackling the questions that systems designers care about, this book brings queueing theory decisively back to computer science. The book is written with computer scientists and engineers in mind and is full of examples from computer systems, as well as manufacturing and operations research. Fun and readable, the book is highly approachable, even for undergraduates, while still being thoroughly rigorous and also covering a much wider span of topics than many queueing books. Readers benefit from a lively mix of motivation and intuition, with illustrations, examples, and more than 300 exercises - all while acquiring the skills needed to model, analyze, and design large-scale systems with good performance and low cost. The exercises are an important feature, teaching research-level counterintuitive lessons in the design of computer systems. The goal is to train readers not only to customize existing analyses but also to invent their own.

About the Author Mor Harchol-Balter is an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University. She is a recipient of the McCandless Chair, the NSF CAREER award, the NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Mathematical Sciences, multiple best paper awards and several teaching awards, including the Herbert A. Simon Award for Teaching Excellence and the campus-wide Teaching Effectiveness Award. She is a leader in the ACM SIGMETRICS/Performance community, for which she recently served as Technical Program Chair, and has served on the Technical Program Committee twelve times. Harchol-Balter's work integrates queueing theoretic analysis with low-level computer systems implementation. Her research is on designing new resource allocation policies (load balancing policies, power management policies and scheduling policies) for server farms and distributed systems in general, where she emphasizes integrating measured workload distributions into the problem solution.

When I needed a new brush my best friend told me about Smartbrush. I gave it a try and was completely thrilled!
