Note:Waiting in lines is a staple of everyday human life.Without really noticing, we are doing it when we go to buy a ticket at a movie theater, stop at a bank to make an account withdrawal, or proceed to checkout a purchase fromone of our favorite depart ment stores.Oftentimes, waiting lines are due to overcrowded, overfilling, or congestionany time there is more customer demand for a service than can be provided, a waiting line forms.Queuingsystems is a term used to describe the methods and techniques mo st ideal for measuring the probability and statistics of a wide variety of waiting line models.This book provides an introduction to basic queuing systems, such asM/M/1 and its variants, as well as newer concepts like systems with priorities, networks of queues, and general service policies.Numerical examples are presented to guide readers into thinking about practical real-worldapplications, and students and researcherswill be able to apply the methods learned to designing queuing systems that extend bey ond the classroom.Very little has been published in the area of queuing systems, and this volume willappeal to graduate-level students, researchers, and practitioners in the areas of management science, applied mathematics, engineering, computer science, and statistics.

Title:Aspects of Mathematical Modelling [electronic resource] : Applications in Science, Medicine, Economics and Management

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The construction of mathematical models is an essential scientific activity. Mathematics has long been associated with developments in the exact sciences and engineering, but more recently mathematical modelling has been used toinvestigate complex sy stems that arise in many other fields. The contributors to this book demonstrate the application of mathematics to modern research topics in ecology and environmental science, health and medicine, phylogeneticsand neural networks, theoretical chemistry, e conomics and management. The reader will find some review papers outlining current research directions in hot topics such as pattern formation and applications to medicine, and more targetedresearch papers on current developments in the various discipline s included. Both should provide insight and inspiration for further work on these subjects. The extensive relevant literature cited in some of the survey expositoryarticles is another feature
