CS 6390 - Advanced Computer Networks

Fall 2016

 

Course Description:

In this course, we will cover both the classical/fundamental topics in computer networks and a number of current/recent research topics related to modern computer networks. Most of the advanced research topics are relevant to Internet related research topics and they are mostly in Layer 3 and above (we will not be looking at problems in DLL or in physical layer). Most of the classical topics will be covered following the Peterson and Davie book. The research topics will be covered by reading/following the research papers (I will provide a list of papers with pointers to soft copies).
