Stochastic performance modelling

Course

Description

Queueing phenomena occur everywhere: in road traffic, production processes, call centers, health centers, and in computer- and communication systems. Random fluctuations in the offered traffic/work are a major cause of delays. Probability theory is being used to model and analyse queueing phenomena and study the performance of systems. In this course, we set the methodological foundations (including Markov chains, Markov processes, the Poisson process, renewal theory) for the periformance analysis and optimization of such systems.
