Stochastic Source Models and Applications to ATM

  • John P. Cosmas
Part of the The International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 557)


The subject of this paper is the theory of the relationships between the main statistical parameters of voice, data and video sources. Examples are given throughout to illustrate how the source models can be parameterised and used. The mathematics is kept as simple and self-explanatory as possible.
