Columbia University Joint CS/EE Networking Seminar Series

Surprises in Routers

Professor Isaac Keslassy

Electrical Engineering, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology

Sept. 27, 3:30PM, EE Conference Room

Abstract: Research is most fun when discovering results that are unexpected and counter-intuitive. This talk will provide a few examples of such results in routers. In particular, it will focus on unexpected stability results in queueing theory, as well as surprisingly inefficient hashing structures.
