TR 2:30-3:45p in 1289 Computer Sciences
Welcome to the home page for CS 747.
Advanced modeling techniques for performance analysis of computer systems,
including LogGP/LoPC, mean value analysis, hierarchical models,
complementary delays, and approximations for modeling high and low
variance service times, bursty arrivals, asynchronous forking, and
fork/join parallel tasks. The course will cover recent papers that
develop the advanced techniques and apply the techniques to problems
in computer architecture, networking, and flexible manufacturing system
design. Students are expected to know the modeling fundamentals covered
in CS547, and will carry out a significant course project involving the
development of a new or significantly revised system model during the
second half of the semester.
