EP2400 Network Algorithms 7.5 credits
The course focuses on distributed algorithms that enable key functions in emerging technologies, such as p2p services, networked control systems and network management for next-generation networks.
The course is organized around two project assignments, each of which focusing on a specific topic. The project modules are independent of each other. Each topic will be introduced based on papers from the research literature. A project assignment has a programming part (Java), and students must deliver a report on the project results.
