During the last two decades, network calculus has evolved as a new theory for the performance analysis of networked systems. In contrast to classical queueing theory, it deals with performance bounds instead of average values and thus has been the theoretical basis of quality of service proposals such as the IETF's Integrated and Differentiated Services architectures. Besides these it has, however, recently seen many other applications scenarios as, for example, wireless sensor networks, switched Ethernets, avionic networks, Systems-on-Chip, or even to speed-up simulations, to name a few.
