Despite intensive research on distributed processor interconnection architec-tures, relatively little work has been done on the performance analysis of such systems. The reason for this, besides the complexity of the behavior of such systems, is that Queueing Theory cannot easily handle systems consisting of many tightly interacting components. An alternate(More)
Three new decomposition methods are developed for the exact analysis of stochastic multi-facility blocking models of the product-form type. The first is a basic decomposition algorithm that reduces the analysis of blocking probabilities to that of two separate subsystems. The second is a generalized M-subsystem decomposition method. The third is a more(More)
A television system utilizing videotape recorder storage is used to store a large number of images degraded by the atmosphere. By using a large number of samples one can obtain an accurate value for the system-atmosphere MTF. The measured transfer functions are in agreement with Fried's analysis, and the values for the index of refraction structure constant(More)
We propose to use tools and methods of statistical mechanics to introduce a unified computational approach to analyze the performance of large-scale computing systems. Just as in statistical physics, we desire a small amount of “macroscopic” information about the system (“thermo-dynamic”) averages (e.g. average concurrency,(More)
