Short Project Description: The growing complexity
of high-speed networks makes the incorporation of advanced mathematical
methodology important for achieving efficient designs
Future high-speed networks involve designing topologies
which are optimized with respect to costs within the limits of physical
constraints, testing for interface compatibility, allocation of resources
under both normal and abnormal conditions. In order to achieve the required
performance characteristics, these networks must be adaptive, learning
networks and require a major conceptual and technological advance over
the current generation of networks that will be: robust, reliable, scalable
and easy to use and operate.
project brings together a team of mathematicians, computer scientists
and computer and systems engineers to develop a joint research effort with
industrial partners to develop innovative approaches to these problems.
The research areas of this project are network design,
network computing: algorithms and protocols, and network security.
