International Series in Operations Research & Management Science #154: Queueing Networks: A Fundamental Approachby Richard J Boucherie
Synopses & Reviews
Professors van Dijk and Boucherie are leading authorities on queueing networks. Their handbook covers the existing state-of-the-art as well as the newly emerging topics which are in the process of generating considerable research activity in the area. It systematically and thoroughly examines the analytical and structural results, the computational aspects, and the applications of queueing networks.
There is a need for a handbook treatment of Queueing Networks for which there has been considerable research and applications in recent years. The book will be of interest to academics and practitioners in manufacturing, communications, and the service industry.
Presenting an overview of the field, this volume discusses computational aspects of queueing networks and
<body><p><span>This handbook aims to highlight fundamental, methodological and computational aspects of networks of queues to provide insights and to unify results that can be applied in a more general manner.<span>
