Communication Networks

SERIES EDITOR:
R. Srikant, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
This series covers topics on the design, implementation, and management of communication networks. Each lecture is a self-contained presentation of one topic by a leading expert. The topics range from algorithms to hardware implementations and cover a broad spectrum of issues from security to multiple-access protocols. The series addresses technologies from sensor networks to reconfigurable optical networks.

The series is designed to:

* Provide the best available presentations of important aspects of communication networks.
* Help engineers and advanced students keep up with recent developments in a rapidly evolving technology.
* Facilitate the development of courses in this field
