Let X denote the data transfer time(ms) in a grid computing system (the time required for data transfer between a "worker" computer and a "master" computer. Suppose that X has a gamma distribution with mean value 37.5 ins and standard deviation 21.6 (suggested by the article ?"Computation Time of Grid Computing with Data Transfer Times that Follow a Gamma Distribution," Proceedings of the First International Conference on Semantics, Knowledge, and Grid, 2005). a. What are the values of a and p? b. What is the probability that data transfer time exceeds 50 ms? c. What is the probability that data transfer time is between 50 and 75 ms?

Communication & Technology Notes Friday 11.18.2016 Dr. Halliwell Computer-mediated communication (CMC)= any human communication achieved through computer or internet technology Digital Native born in the 90's into a time where digital communication was already widespread. Textual Chemistry: when two people achieve a "vibe" or "chemistry" through texting; texting compatibility may be an important indicator of how communication would work in a long-term relationship ADVANTAGES OF CMC 1. Distance 2. Flexibility 3. Mixed modality= permanent nature of written comm. 4. Asynchronous CMC (not at the same time) 5. Egalitarian potential= anyone can talk to anyone, there
