Source-oriented topology aggregation with multiple QoS parameters in hierarchical networks
Turgay Korkmaz, Marwan Krunz
Pages: 295-325
DOI: 10.1145/369534.369542
In this paper, we investigate the problem of topology aggregation (TA) for scalable, QoS-based routing in hierarchical networks. TA is the process of summarizing the topological information of a subset of network elements. This summary is...

Nearly optimal importance sampling for Monte Carlo simulation of loss systems
Pasi E. Lassila, Jorma T. Virtamo
Pages: 326-347
DOI: 10.1145/369534.369541
In this paper we consider the problem of estimating blocking probabili ties in the multiservice loss system via simulation, applying the static Monte Carlo method with importance sampling. Earlier approaches to this problem include the use of...

Tables of 64-bit Mersenne twisters
Takuji Nishimura
Pages: 348-357
DOI: 10.1145/369534.369540
We give new parameters for a Mersenne Twister pseudorandom number gene rator for 64-bit word machines....

Parallel shared-memory simulator performance for large ATM networks
Brian Unger, Zhonge Xiao, John Cleary, Jya-Jang Tsai, Carey Williamson
Pages: 358-391
DOI: 10.1145/369534.369537
A performance comparison between an optimistic and a conservative parallel simulation kernel is presented. Performance of the parallel kernels is also compared to a central-event-list sequential kernel. A spectrum of ATM network and traffic...
