Performance Modeling and Design of Computer Systems: Queueing Theory in Action

By Mor Harchol-Balter

Computers layout is stuffed with conundrums:

•Given a decision among a unmarried computing device with velocity s, or n machines each one with pace s/n, which may still we choose?

•If either the coming cost and repair fee double, will the suggest reaction time remain the same?

•Should platforms quite target to stability load, or is that this a handy delusion?
•If a scheduling coverage favors one set of jobs, does it inevitably damage another jobs, or are those "conservation legislation" being misinterpreted?

•Do grasping, shortest-delay, routing recommendations make feel in a server farm, or is what is strong for the person disastrous for the process as a whole?

•How do excessive activity dimension variability and heavy-tailed workloads have an effect on the alternative of a scheduling policy?

•How may still one exchange off strength and hold up in designing a working laptop or computer system?

•If 12 servers are had to meet hold up promises while the arriving fee is nine jobs/sec, can we want 12,000 servers whilst the coming price is 9,000 jobs/sec?

Tackling the questions that platforms designers care approximately, this ebook brings queueing thought decisively again to computing device technological know-how. The publication is written with desktop scientists and engineers in brain and is filled with examples from desktops, in addition to production and operations examine. enjoyable and readable, the publication is very approachable, even for undergraduates, whereas nonetheless being completely rigorous and in addition protecting a much broader span of themes than many queueing books. Readers take advantage of a full of life mixture of motivation and instinct, with illustrations, examples, and greater than three hundred workouts - all whereas buying the talents had to version, study, and layout large-scale structures with stable functionality and occasional price. The routines are an immense function, instructing research-level counterintuitive classes within the layout of computers. The aim is to coach readers not just to customise current analyses but in addition to invent their very own.

Foundations of Linear and Generalized Linear Models (Wiley Series in Probability and Statistics)

A precious evaluation of an important principles and ends up in statistical modeling

Written via a highly-experienced author, Foundations of Linear and Generalized Linear Models is a transparent and entire consultant to the most important thoughts and result of linearstatistical versions. The ebook provides a wide, in-depth evaluate of the main as a rule usedstatistical types via discussing the idea underlying the versions, R software program applications,and examples with crafted types to clarify key principles and advertise sensible modelbuilding.

The ebook starts off via illustrating the basics of linear versions, akin to how the model-fitting initiatives the information onto a version vector subspace and the way orthogonal decompositions of the information yield information regarding the results of explanatory variables. to that end, the ebook covers the most well-liked generalized linear types, which come with binomial and multinomial logistic regression for specific facts, and Poisson and unfavorable binomial loglinear types for count number information. concentrating on the theoretical underpinnings of those models, Foundations ofLinear and Generalized Linear Models also features:

  • An advent to quasi-likelihood tools that require weaker distributional assumptions, similar to generalized estimating equation methods
  • An evaluate of linear combined types and generalized linear combined types with random results for clustered correlated facts, Bayesian modeling, and extensions to address troublesome circumstances comparable to excessive dimensional problems
  • Numerous examples that use R software program for all textual content info analyses
  • More than four hundred workouts for readers to perform and expand the idea, tools, and information analysis
  • A supplementary site with datasets for the examples and exercises

a useful textbook for upper-undergraduate and graduate-level scholars in facts and biostatistics courses, Foundations of Linear and Generalized Linear Models is additionally a very good reference for practising statisticians and biostatisticians, in addition to a person who's drawn to studying concerning the most crucial statistical types for reading data.
