(Suggest an Edit or Addition)

According to Wikipedia, Leonard Kleinrock is an American computer scientist and Internet pioneer. He is a long-tenured professor at UCLA's Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science. In the early 1960s, Kleinrock pioneered the application of queueing theory to model delays in message switching networks in his Ph.D. thesis, published as a book in 1964. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, he played an influential role in the development of the ARPANET. He applied queueing theory to model and measure the performance of packet switching networks and published several of the standard works on the subject in the mid 1970s. He supervised graduate students who worked on the communication protocols for the ARPANET and many other students whose later who on internetworking led to the Internet protocol suite and the commercialization of networking technology employed in the Internet. His theoretical work on hierarchical routing in the late 1970s with student Farouk Kamoun remains critical to the operation of the Internet today.
