### Analyzing a multiple-queue single-server model

Consider the following multiple-queue single-server model of a packet network problem. At each discrete time $t=0,1,\ldots,n$, a packet may arrive at the server R with probability $1-\epsilon_1$. The ...

### Problem of random scheduling of queues of tasks

Consider $L$ queues in a discrete time system. At each time $n=0,1,2,\ldots$, one task would arrive at one of the queues with equal probability $\frac{1}{L}$. Immediately after that, a task scheduler ...

### Customers and Anti-Customer Queueing Problem: What is the Customer delete probability

Hello may I ask for your help?
First the setting:
I have got a problem with some queueing theory. The whole problem would be a grid of nodes, all nodes have an operation intensity $\mu_{i,j}$. ...

### Continuity of the stationary distribution of $M/G/1$ queue w.r.t. the input rate

Let $(\lambda_n)_{n\geq0}$ be a sequence of positive numbers such that $\lambda_n\rightarrow \lambda$ as $n\rightarrow +\infty$. These $\lambda_n$ are the parameters of a sequence of Poisson Processes ...

### Matrix Generator for M/M/1 Queue Waiting Time Distribution

I "believe" that generator, $\bf W$, of the waiting time distribution for the M/M/1 queue is given by the following (I'm not sure if this is even correct):
${\bf W} =\left( \begin{array}{ccccc}
0 &...

### Concurrency related problems in $n$ independent, parallel $M/M/1$ queues

Queueing Model:
Consider $n$ independent, parallel $M/M/1$ queues with identical arrival rate $\lambda$ and service rate $\mu$. For each $M/M/1$ queue, we use the FCFS (First Come First Served) ...

### M/G/1 queue - probability that waiting time is zero

so: I have a M/G/1-queue with Poisson arrivals with rate lambda=1 and the service time being the sum of two exp-distributed variables vith rates u1=1 and u2=2.
If we let Wq be the time an average ...

### Wiener-Hopf Integral/Lindley's Equation

Lindley's equation is well known within queueing theory and is as follows
$F(y) = - \int_0^\infty F(x)dH(y-x)$
However, many textbooks only consider the case where 0 $\le$ y $\le \infty$ (which ...
