Estimation of the statistics of rare events in data communications systems

Frater, Michael R


There are many examples of rare events in telecommunications systems, including buffer overflows in queueing systems, cycle slipping in phase-locked loops and the escape of adaptive equalizers from local (possibly incorrect) equilibria. In many cases, factors such as the high cost of the occurrence of these events mean that their statistics are of interest in spite of their rarity. The estimation of the statistics of these rare events via direct simulation is very time consuming, simply...[Show more]
