Principles of digital communication by Robert G Gallager( Book )

"The renowned communication theorist Robert Gallager brings his lucid writing style to this first-year graduate textbook on the fundamental system aspects of digital communication. He develops a simple framework and then combines this with careful proofs to help the reader understand modern systems and simplified models in an intuitive yet precise way. Although many features of various modern digital communication systems are discussed, the focus is always on principles explained using a hierarchy of simple models." "Throughout, principles are developed with both mathematical precision and intuitive explanations, allowing readers to choose their own mix of mathematics and engineering. An extensive set of exercises ranges from confidence-building examples to more challenging problems."--BOOK JACKET
Discrete stochastic processes by Robert G Gallager( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stochastic processes are found in probabilistic systems that evolve with time. Discrete stochastic processes change by only integer time steps (for some time scale), or are characterized by discrete occurrences at arbitrary times. Discrete Stochastic Processes helps the reader develop the understanding and intuition necessary to apply stochastic process theory in engineering, science and operations research. The book approaches the subject via many simple examples which build insight into the structure of stochastic processes and the general effect of these phenomena in real systems. The book presents mathematical ideas without recourse to measure theory, using only minimal mathematical analysis. In the proofs and explanations, clarity is favored over formal rigor, and simplicity over generality. Numerous examples are given to show how results fail to hold when all the conditions are not satisfied. Audience: An excellent textbook for a graduate level course in engineering and operations research. Also an invaluable reference for all those requiring a deeper understanding of the subject

Stochastic processes : theory for applications by Robert G Gallager( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Basic underlying principles and axioms are made clear from the start, and new topics are developed as needed, encouraging and enabling students to develop an instinctive grasp of the fundamentals. Mathematical proofs are made easy for students to understand and remember, helping them quickly learn how to choose and apply the best possible models to real-world situations"--

Data networks reliability by Robert G Gallager( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research from 1984 to 1986 on Data Network Reliability had the objective of developing general principles governing the reliable and efficient control of data networks. The research was centered around three major areas: congestion control, multiaccess networks, and distributed asynchronous algorithms. The major topics within congestion control were the use of flow control algorithms. The major topics within congestion control were the use of flow control to reduce congestion and the use of routing to reduce congestion. The major topics within multiaccess networks were the communication properties of multiaccess channels, collision resolution, and packet radio networks. The major topics within asynchronous distributed algorithms were failure recovery, time vs. communication tradeoffs, and the general theory of distributed algorithms. (kr)

Second derivative algorithms for minimum delay distributed routing in networks by Dimitri P Bertsekas( Book )

3 editions published between 1981 and 1983 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We propose a class of algorithms for finding an optimal quasistatic routing in a communication network. The algorithms are based on Gallager's method. Their main feature is that they utilize second derivatives of the objective function and may be viewed as approximations to a constrained version of Newton's method. The use of second derivatives results in improved speed of convergence and automatic stepsize scaling with respect to level of traffic input. These advantages are of crucial importance for the practical implementation of the algorithm using distributed computation

Proof of correctness of proposed ATM retransmission scheme by Jane Marie Zarouni Simmons( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The CCITT has proposed a poll-based retransmission scheme as part of the Service Specific Connection Oriented Protocol for ATM systems. The basic scheme consists of the source periodically sending polls to the destination indicating which frames have been sent, and the destination responding with a status message indicating which of these frames have not been received. Many additional features have been included in the scheme in order to reduce the retransmission delay and prevent unnecessary retransmissions. With the added complexity of these features, it is not readily apparent whether the scheme generates the necessary retransmissions. We formally prove that the scheme does eventually generate a retransmission of any lost frame without producing any unnecessary retransmissions, assuming that certain reasonable conditions hold. In proving the correctness of the scheme, we also further define the protocol. We also examine how the protocol can fail if the conditions for proper operation are not met

A perspective on multiaccess channels by Robert G Gallager( Book )

3 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Information Theoretic Approach and the Collision Resolution Approach to Multiaccess Channels are reviewed in terms of the Underlying Communication Problems that both are modelling. The author gives some perspective on the strengths and weakness of these approaches and argues for the need of a more combined approach focused on coding and decoding techniques. (Author)
