The general objective of this graduate-level course on advanced computer communication and networking technologies is to develop students' abilities to (1) conduct research in the area of computer networks and (2) innovate network technologies. This objective will be achieved through a reading/lecture/discussion component and a project component. In particular, we will read papers on various aspects of advanced computer networking, e.g., routing, admission control, congestion/flow control, queuing theory, link scheduling, internetworking, wireless technologies, quality of service, and peer-to-peer networks. We will also learn how to apply (mathematical) optimization to networking.
