Overview

Written by two leading experts in stochastic models and applied probab ility, the book is based on the authors' lecture notes accumulated ove r many years of teaching queueing networks. The selection of materials is well-balanced in breadth and depth, making the book an ideal gradu ate-level text for students in engineering, business, applied mathemat ics, and probability and statistics. As queueing networks have become widely used as a basic model of many physical systems in a diverse ran ge of fields, from supply chains to communication networks, the book i s also a useful reference for researchers and practitioners in industr ial engineering, operations research and management, computer systems, telecommunications, and related fields.
