Editorial Reviews


From the reviews:

"This book takes an unusual path to describe computer network protocols. … Robin Sharp starts from formal description techniques. More precisely, he chooses the Communicating Sequential Processes (CSP) notation proposed by Hoare. … could be of interest to readers who are more interested in the application of formal description techniques to network protocols." (IEEE Network, September/October, 2008)

"The book particularly reflects the recent developments in computer networks and distributed systems with special reference to applications. A number of new protocols are introduced with a focus on their current application, what is good stuff for students and researchers in the area. … The book could be used for undergraduate third and fourth year courses in computer science and the network area. I am sure that this book will be a valuable asset in the educational and scientific community at large." (Aniket Mahanti, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1142, 2008)
