Analytical Network and System Administration Managing Human–Computer Networks by Mark Burgess pdf download. This is a research document and a textbook for graduate students and researchers in the field of networking and system administration. It offers a theoretical perspective on human–computer systems and their administration. The book assumes a basic competence in mathematical methods, common to undergraduate courses. Readers looking for a less theoretical introduction to the subject may wish to consult (Burgess (2000b)). I have striven to write a short book, treating topics briefly rather than succumbing to the temptation to write an encyclopædia that few will read or be able to lift. I have not attempted to survey the literature or provide any historical context to the development of these ideas (see Anderson et al. (2001)). I hope this makes the book accessible to the intelligent lay reader who does not possess an extensive literacy in the field and would be confused by such distractions.

The more advanced reader should find sufficient threads to follow to add depth to the material. In my experience, too much attention to detail merely results in one forgetting why one is studying something at all. In this case, we are trying to formulate a descriptive language for systems. A theoretical synthesis of system administration plays two roles: it provides a descriptive framework for systems that should be available to other areas of computer science and proffers an analytical framework for dealing with the complexities of interacting components.

The field of system administration meets an unusual challenge in computer science: that of approximation. Modern computing systems are too complicated to be understood in exact terms. In the flagship theory of physics, quantum electrodynamics, one builds everything out of two simple principles: 1. Different things can exist at different places and times. 2. For every effect, there must be a cause.

The beauty of this construction is its lack of assumptions and the richness of the results. In this text, I have tried to synthesize something like this for human–computer systems. In order to finish the book, and keep it short and readable, I have had to compromise on many things. I hope that the result nevertheless contributes in some way to a broader scientific understanding of the field and will inspire students to further serious study of this important subject.

Some of this work is based on research performed with my collaborators Geoff Canright, Frode Sandnes and Trond Reitan. I have benefited greatly from discussions with them and others. I am especially grateful for the interest and support of other researchers, most notably Alva Couch for understanding my own contributions when no one else did. Finally, I would like to thank several for reading the draft versions of the manuscript and commenting: Paul Anderson, Lars Kristiansen, Tore Jonassen, Anil Somayaji and Jan Bergstra.
