Grid technology has great potential, although it is more recent and quite a technical challenge. Networking courses in particular are popular with students who, even in college, sense the ?eld s importance and exci- ment. The purpose of this book is to provide an undergraduate/?rst-yeargra- atetextsuitableforacomputernetworksandgridcoursewithamathematical ?avor.Although many books onnetworking exist, most havelittle mathem- ical content.

To some extent this book is based on undergraduate and graduate c- puter networks courses I have taught since 1983. The book starts with an introductory networking technology chapter. Chapter 2 covers fundamental stochastic (i.e., random) models for networking. Chapter 3 provides an int- duction to queueing theory, a widely used tool for modeling and predicting the performance of networked systems.

In chapter 4, some fundamental - terministic algorithms for networking are studied. These algorithms include shortest path routing, protocol veri?cation, and error checking codes. Finally, chapter 5 provides an extensive tutorial on divisible load scheduling theory, a relatively new performance evaluation methodology that has applications to grid computing. At the undergraduate level, I teach the quantitative material (say, ch- ters 2 and 4 and parts of 3) ?rst while students are fresh and more rec- tive and save the qualitative technology description for the second half of the course.At the graduatelevel, one canfocus moreonthe quantitativematerial (including chapter 5), while allowing students more independence in learning the technology.
