This book describes accurate but conservative methods for computing delay variation due to coupling. Furthermore, most of these methods are computationally efficient enough to be employed in a static timing analysis tool for complex integrated digital circuits. To achieve accuracy, a more accurate computation of the Miller factor is derived. To achieve both computational efficiency and accuracy, a variety of mechanisms for pruning the search space are detailed, including:
-Spatial pruning - reducing aggressors to those in physical proximity,
-Electrical pruning - reducing aggressors by electrical strength,
-Temporal pruning - reducing aggressors using timing windows,
-Functional pruning - reducing aggressors by Boolean functional analysis.

"All signoff analyses - timing, coupling, power, temperature, and reliability - rely on the analysis of crosstalk noise. This book is an important contribution to the field: it provides a synthesis of analytic bounding of crosstalk effects, switching window convergence, and other recent elements of crosstalk methodology. It provides a level of understanding that will be essential for researchers, developers, and users of leading EDA tools going forward."
