This project revisits the foundations of multimedia networking
in the light of the network calculus mathematical framework.
Network Calculus is a collection of results based on Min-Plus algebra,
which applies to deterministic queuing systems found in communication
networks. Network calculus in general and its applications
to multimedia
networking in particular is receiving growing interest from
a wide research community.

This project tackles the optimal delivery of composite media
over Guaranteed Service networks (e.g. ATM VC and IETF RSVP).
We are bringing some original contributions to the filtering
theory developed by Professor C. S. Chang in his IEEE
Transactions on Information Theory 1998 pioneering work.
