This rigorous and self-contained book describes mathematical and in particular, stochastic methods to assess the performance of networked systems. It concentrates on probability theory, classical theory of stochastic processes and the newer field of physics of networks. Containing problems and solutions, it is ideal for graduate courses in performance analysis.
