Based on the careful analysis of several hundred publications, this book uniformly describes basic methods of analysis and critical results of the theory of retrial queues.
Chapters discuss:
  • analysis of single-server retrial queues, including stationary and transient distribution of the number in the system, busy period, waiting time process, limit theorems, stochastic inequalities, traffic measurement
  • multiserver retrial queues - ergodicity, explicit formulas, algorithmic solutions, limit theorems, approximations
  • advanced single-server and multiserver retrial queues - models with priority subscribers, non-ersistent subscribers, finite source queues
    Lecturers, researchers, and students in probability, statistics, operations research, telecommunications, and computer systems modeling analysis will find Retrial Queues to be an invaluable resource.
