Abstract:

This Semi-Annual Technical Report covers research carried out by the Advanced Teleprocessing Systems Group at UCLA under DARPA Contract No. MDA 903- 82-C-0064 covering the period from April 1, 1983 to September 30, 1983. This contract has three primary designated research areas packet radio systems, resource sharing and allocation, and distributed processing and control. This report contains the abstracts of the publications which summarize our research results in those areas during this semi-annual period, followed by the main body of the report which consists of the Ph.D. dissertation by H. Richard Gail, On the Optimization of Computer Network Power, conducted under the supervision of Professor Leonard Kleinrock Principal Investigator for this contract. It addresses the tradeoff between throughput and delay involving the selection of a suitable operating point for a computer network. This tradeoff is studied through the maximization of various throughput-delay performance measures, all known as power. The models analyzed for the most part are those for a terrestrial wire network.
