An exact root-free method for the expected queue length for a class of discrete-time queueing systems

For a class of discrete-time queueing systems, we present a new exact method of computing both the expectation and the distribution of the queue length. This class of systems includes the bulk-service queue and the fixed-cycle traffic-light (FCTL) …

Infinite-server systems with Coxian arrivals

We consider a network of infinite-server queues where the input process is a Cox process of the following form: The arrival rate is a vector-valued linear transform of a multivariate generalized (i.e., being driven by a subordinator rather than a …


Asymptotic independence of regenerative processes with a special dependence structure

We identify some conditions under which regenerative processes with a certain dependence structure among them are asymptotically independent. The result is applied to various models, in particular independent Lévy processes with dependent …


Dynamic rate Erlang-A queues

The multi-server queue with non-homogeneous Poisson arrivals and customer abandonment is a fundamental dynamic rate queueing model for large-scale service systems such as call centers and hospitals. Scaling the arrival rates and number of servers …

Sharing delay information in service systems: a literature survey

Service providers routinely share information about upcoming waiting times with their customers, through delay announcements. The need to effectively manage the provision of these announcements has led to a substantial growth in the body of …

About this journal

Queueing Systems: Theory and Applications (QUES) is a well-established journal focusing on the theory of resource sharing in a wide sense, particularly within a network context. The journal is primarily interested in probabilistic and statistical problems in this setting.

QUES welcomes both papers addressing these issues in the context of some application and papers developing mathematical methods for their analysis. Among the latter, one would particularly quote Markov chains and processes, stationary processes, random graphs, point processes, stochastic geometry, and related fields.

The prospective areas of application include, but are not restricted to production, storage and logistics, traffic and transportation, computer and communication systems.
