Introduction

This web site provides links and very brief summaries for some of the work that has been done in the areas of self-similarity and long range dependence in computer networks. Self-similar and long range dependent characteristics in computer networks present a fundamentally different set of problems to people doing analysis and/or design of networks, and many of the previous assumptions upon which systems have been built are no longer valid in the presence of self-similarity.
