Performance models are useful as mathematical models to reason about the behavior of different computer systems while running various applications. In this thesis, we aim to provide two distinct performance models: one for distributed-
memory high performance computing systems with network communication, and one for deep neural networks. Our main goal for the first model is insight and simplicity, while for the second we aim for accuracy in prediction. The first model is generalized for networked multi-core computer systems, while the second is specific to deep neural networks on a shared-memory system.
