Optimal pricing for tandem queues with finite buffers

We consider optimal pricing for a two-station tandem queueing system with finite buffers, communication blocking, and price-sensitive customers whose arrivals form a homogeneous Poisson process. The service provider quotes prices to incoming …

Bounds and limit theorems for a layered queueing model in electric vehicle charging

The rise of electric vehicles (EVs) is unstoppable due to factors such as the decreasing cost of batteries and various policy decisions. These vehicles need to be charged and will therefore cause congestion in local distribution grids in the …


A stochastic analysis of a network with two levels of service

In this paper, a stochastic model of a call center with a two-level architecture is analyzed. A first-level pool of operators answers calls, identifies, and handles non-urgent calls. A call classified as urgent has to be transferred to specialized …


Strategic customer behavior in a two-stage batch processing system

We consider a two-stage service system with batch processing. More specifically, customers arrive according to a Poisson process at the first stage of the system, where they do not receive any service, but wait until a number K of them are …

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) …

Über diese Zeitschrift

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.
