"Robertazzi (Stony Brook Univ., NY) has written a powerful book on computational assessments of network grids and telecommunication systems. It provides a heady combination of technological and mathematical theories … . Each chapter has an abundance of challenging problems. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students, professionals." (M. Connell, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (8), 2008)
"The book combines elements of theory and technology of both classical networks and grid systems enabling resource sharing and coordination, and distributed computing. It gives an interesting overview of theoretical aspects of network operation, ranging from stochastic models encompassing queueing theory, Petri nets, routing algorithms and load scheduling, up to performance evaluation for grids and grid computing. It is an interesting and useful book that can be recommended for both undergraduate and first-year graduate students.” (Jozef Wozniak, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1132 (10), 2008)
