### Practical statistics for queueing networks

There is a theory for queueing networks where we postulate some nicely behaving base distributions of arrival processes and service processes and then calculate the behaviour of the system.
Now, in ...

### equivalent model of two queueing systems?

Most of the existing queueing theory are based on models like $M/M/1$ or $M/G/1$ or $G/G/1$, where the server service rate is normalized to one. However, in practice, suppose we have a queueing model ...

### Trying to show expected wait is convex — need to show an expression is positive

I need to show that the following expression is positive
$$ (B+1) (2 B+1) z_0^B-(B+2) (\rho +1) z_0-2 (B+1) (B-1) ((\rho +1) z_0-\rho )+(B-1) (\rho +1) > 0 $$
where $B\geq 1$ is an integer, $0<...

### steady state distribution of a dynamical equation?

Given the following dynamical equation for $X(t)$ as follows:
$X(t+1) = X(t) - \min\{X(t), M\} + Y(t)$,
or can write it as follows:
$X(t+1) = \max\{X(t) - M, 0\} + Y(t)$,
Assume the PDF of $Y(t)$ ...

### 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 ...

### 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}
