Packet delay in models of data networks
Henryk Fukś, Anna T. Lawniczak, Stanislav Volkov
Pages: 233-250
DOI: 10.1145/502109.502110
We investigate individual packet delay in a model of data networks with table-free, partial table and full table routing. We present analytical estimation for the average packet delay in a network with small partial routing table. Dependence of the...

A fully sequential procedure for indifference-zone selection in simulation
Seong-Hee Kim, Barry L. Nelson
Pages: 251-273
DOI: 10.1145/502109.502111
We present procedures for selecting the best or near-best of a finite number of simulated systems when best is defined by maximum or minimum expected performance. The procedures are appropriate when it is possible to repeatedly obtain small,...

Fast simulation of broadband telecommunications networks carrying long-range dependent bursty traffic
José R. Gallardo, Dimitrios Makrakis, Luis Orozco-Barbosa
Pages: 274-293
DOI: 10.1145/502109.502112
A technique for the fast simulation of broadband communication systems is proposed, which is based on regenerative Importance Sampling techniques and on large-deviation results. Our algorithm is applicable to estimate the probability of rare events...

On the statistical independence of compound pseudorandom numbers over part of the period
Mordechay B. Levin
Pages: 294-311
DOI: 10.1145/502109.502113
This article deals with the compound methods with modulus m for generating uniform pseudorandom numbers, which have been introduced recently. Equidistribution and statistical independence properties of the generated sequences over part of the...
