]Praise for the Third Edition

"This is among the most sensible books on hand. Its very good organizational constitution permits quickly connection with particular versions and its transparent presentation . . . solidifies the knowledge of the suggestions being presented."
--IIE Transactions on Operations Engineering

Thoroughly revised and multiplied to mirror the newest advancements within the box, Fundamentals of Queueing Theory, Fourth variation keeps to offer the elemental statistical ideas which are essential to learn the probabilistic nature of queues. instead of proposing a slender specialise in the topic, this replace illustrates the wide-reaching, primary techniques in queueing concept and its purposes to various parts corresponding to computing device technological know-how, engineering, company, and operations research.

This replace takes a numerical method of knowing and making possible estimations in relation to queues, with a complete define of straightforward and extra complex queueing types. Newly featured subject matters of the Fourth version include:
• Retrial queues
• Approximations for queueing networks
• Numerical inversion of transforms
• identifying the best variety of servers to stability caliber and value of service

Each bankruptcy presents a self-contained presentation of key strategies and formulae, permitting readers to paintings with each one part independently, whereas a precis desk on the finish of the publication outlines the kinds of queues which have been mentioned and their effects. furthermore, new appendices were further, discussing transforms and producing features in addition to the basics of differential and distinction equations. New examples at the moment are integrated besides difficulties that contain QtsPlus software program, that's freely on hand through the book's similar internet site.

With its available kind and wealth of real-world examples, Fundamentals of Queueing Theory, Fourth version is a perfect publication for classes on queueing idea on the upper-undergraduate and graduate degrees. it's also a beneficial source for researchers and practitioners who study congestion within the fields of telecommunications, transportation, aviation, and administration technological know-how.
