This book presents the algebraic fundamentals of switching theory with applications to the field of telecommunications. In addition, applications are described in such areas as multi-processor interconnections, hardware sorting, fast Fourier transform, and convolution decoding. By linking switching theory to industrial practice throughout the book, readers benefit from exposure to more than a pure mathematical treatment.
Algebraic Switching Theory and Broadband Applications is unique in its focus on developing an algebraic foundation for switching networks. This focus will be of great value to researchers and distinguishes it from others in the field.
