Title:Tuning Systems: From Composition to Performance
Authors: Jane Hillston
Date:May 2005
Publication Title:The Computer Journal
Publication Type:Journal Article Publication Status:Published
Volume No:48(4) Page Nos:385-400
This paper gives a summary of some of the work of the Performance Evaluation Process Algebra (PEPA) project, which was awarded the 2004 Roger Needham Award from the BCS. Centred on the PEPA modelling formalism, the project has sought to balance theory and practice. Theoretical developments have been tested and validated by application to a wide range of problems and such case studies have provided the stimulus for new directions in theory. Both aspects of the work are presented in summary as well as some current and future research topics.
