Hisashi Kobayashi and B. L. Mark, System Modeling and Analysis: Foundations of System Performance Evaluation (Pearson/Prentice Hall, 782 pages) was published. Its preface and table of contents can be found at http://www.pearsonhighered.com/educator/academic/product/0,3110,013034835X,00.html
This book is a major expansion and revision of my first book Modeling and Analysis; An Introduction to System Performance Evaluation Methodology (Addison Wesley, 1978, 446 pages). I started writing this volume when I took a sabbatical leave to RCAST, the University of Tokyo in 1991-92. So I was pregnant for over 17 years!! The was favorably reviewed in the IEEE Communications Magazine, Book Reviews , October 2009, page 14.
