Book Description

Fundamentals of Queueing Theory; 5e is the absolute guide to queueing theory and its practical applications — it features numerous real-world examples of scientific; engineering; and business applications.

Thoroughly updated and expanded to reveal the latest developments in the field; Fundamentals of Queueing Theory; 5th Edition (PDF) presents the statistical principles and processes involved in the evaluation of the probabilistic nature of queues. Instead of focusing narrowly on a particular application area; the authors present the theory in practice across a range of fields; from computer science and other engineering disciplines to business and operations research. Critically; the textbook also provides a numerical approach to understanding and making estimations with queueing theory and offers comprehensive coverage of both simple and advanced queueing models. Like with all preceding editions; this latest update of the classic textbook features a unique combination of the theoretical and timely real-world applications. The introductory section has been rearranged with expanded coverage of qualitative/non-mathematical approaches to queueing theory; including a high-level description of queues in daily life. New topics on non-stationary fluid queues; fairness in queueing; and Little’s Law have been included; as has expanded coverage of stochastic processes; including the Markov chains and Poisson process.



    • Examples from a range of disciplines highlight practical issues often encountered when applying the theory to real-world problems


    • A summary table at the end of the ebook outlines the queues that have been discussed and the types of results that have been obtained for every queue


    • Every chapter provides a self-contained presentation of key concepts and formulas; to allow readers to focus independently on topics relevant to their interests


    • A companion website features QtsPlus; an Excel-based software platform that provides computer-based solutions for most queueing models presented in the ebook (may not be included in this sale).



Highlighting chapter-end exercises and problems—all of which have been classroom-tested and improved by the authors in advanced undergraduate and graduate-level courses—Fundamentals of Queueing Theory; 5th Edition is an ideal textbook for courses in applied mathematics; probability and statistics; queueing theory and stochastic processes. This ebook is also an important reference for practitioners in applied mathematics; engineering; operations research; and industrial engineering.

NOTE: The product only includes the ebook; Fundamentals of Queueing Theory; Fifth Edition in PDF. No access codes are included.
