Rational Interpolation Examples in Performance Analysis
September 2001 (vol. 50 no. 9)
pp. 997-1003

Abstract—The rational interpolation approach has been applied to performance analysis of computer systems in [3]. In this paper, we demonstrate the effectiveness of the rational interpolation technique in the analysis of randomized algorithms and the fault probability calculation for some real-time systems.
