Network Tomography

Network tomography allows us to infer internal characteristics, such as node and link properties (delay, jitter, packet drop, status), from end-to-end measurements. This talk will describe our recent work on deterministic and stochastic approaches to inferring link metrics that may be Boolean, or additive across the path. The talk will cover minimal monitor placement, path construction, partial identifiability and optimal probe allocation My collaborators in this work include Liang Ma, Ting He, Chang Liu, Paul Yu, Don Towsley and Kin Leung.
