Wiley Series in Communications Networking & Distributed Systems
The 'Wiley Series in Communications Networking & Distributed Systems' is a series of expert-level, technically detailed books covering cutting-edge research, and brand new developments as well as tutorial-style treatments in networking, middleware and software technologies for communications and distributed systems. The books will provide timely and reliable information about the state-of-the-art to researchers, advanced students and development engineers in the Telecommunications and the Computing sectors.
Topics of interest include, but are by no means restricted to the following:
- Middleware for comms
- Self-organizing networks
- Resource Management
- Network management
- Charging & billing
- Grid technology and applications
- (Mobile) ad hoc networks
- Ubiquitous / wearable / pervasive computing
- Intelligent networks
- Switching/routing (optical, GMPLS)
- sensor networks
If you have an idea for a new book that seems relevant to the series but is not listed, please feel free to contact the series editor or any of the advisers for their feedback.
Or, you may download the proposal form.

Grid computing appears to be a promising trend for three reasons:
(1) Its ability to make more cost-effective use of a given amount of computer resources,
(2) As a way to solve problems that can't be approached without an enormous amount of computing power
(3) Because it suggests that the resources of many computers can be cooperatively and perhaps Read More
