Abstract

Written with students and professors in mind, Analysis of Queues: Methods and Applications combines coverage of classical queueing theory with recent advances in studying stochastic networks. Exploring a broad range of applications, the book contains plenty of solved problems, exercises, case studies, paradoxes, and numerical examples. In addition to the standard single-station and single class discrete queues, the book discusses models for multi-class queues and queueing networks as well as methods based on fluid scaling, stochastic fluid flows, continuous parameter Markov processes, and quasi-birth-and-death processes, to name a few. It describes a variety of applications including computer-communication networks, information systems, production operations, transportation, and service systems such as healthcare, call centers and restaurants.
