Jean-Yves Le Boudec is professor at EPFL and fellow of the IEEE. He graduated from Ecole Normale Superieure de Saint-Cloud, Paris, and received his doctorate in 1984 from the University of Rennes, France. Before joining the EPFL in 1994, he had worked at Bell Northern Research, Ottawa, Canada; and at the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory where he was manager of the Customer Premises Network Department. His interests are in the performance and architecture of communication systems. He is recipient of numerous awards, including the 2008 IEEE Communications Society William R. Bennett Prize in the field of Communications Networking.

Reviews for Performance Evaluation of Computer and Communication Systems

... written by a scientist successful in performance evaluation, it is based on his experience and provides many ideas not only to laymen entering the field, but also to practitioners looking for inspiration. The work can be read systematically as a textbook on how to model and test the derived hypotheses on the basis of simulations. Also, separate parts can be studied, as the chapters are self-contained. ... the book can be successfully used either for self-study or as a supplementary book for a lecture. I believe that different types of readers will like it: practicing engineers and researchers dealing with new solutions, as well as graduate students starting their adventures in the jungle of performance evaluation. -Piotr Cholda, in IEEE Communications Magazine, October 2011
