zbMATH — the first resource for mathematics

Examples
Geometry Search for the term Geometry in any field. Queries are case-independent.
Funct* Wildcard queries are specified by * (e.g. functions, functorial, etc.). Otherwise the search is exact.
"Topological group" Phrases (multi-words) should be set in "straight quotation marks".
au: Bourbaki & ti: Algebra Search for author and title. The and-operator & is default and can be omitted.
Chebyshev | Tschebyscheff The or-operator | allows to search for Chebyshev or Tschebyscheff.
"Quasi* map*" py: 1989 The resulting documents have publication year 1989.
so: Eur* J* Mat* Soc* cc: 14 Search for publications in a particular source with a Mathematics Subject Classification code (cc) in 14.
"Partial diff* eq*" ! elliptic The not-operator ! eliminates all results containing the word elliptic.
dt: b & au: Hilbert The document type is set to books; alternatively: j for journal articles, a for book articles.

Control policies for the M x /G/1 queueing system. (English) Zbl 0671.60099

Summary: The M x /G/1 queueing system is studied under the following two situations:

(1) At the end of a busy period, the server is turned off and inspects the length of the queue every time an arrival occurs. When the queue length reaches, or exceeds, a pre-specified value m for the first time, the server is turned on and serves the system until it is empty.

(2) At the end of a busy period, the server takes a sequence of vacations, each for a random amount of time. At the end of each vacation, he inspects the length of the queue. If the queue length is greater than, or equal to, a pre-specified value m at this time, he begins to serve the system until it is empty.

For both cases, the mean waiting time of an arbitrary customer for a given value of m is derived, and the procedure to find the stationary optimal policy under a linear cost structure is presented.
