Monographs on Statistics and Applied Probability 75. London: Chapman & Hall/ CRC Press (ISBN 0-412-78550-1). 320 p. (1997).
Publisher’s description: Based on the careful analysis of several hundred publications, this book uniformly describes basic methods of analysis and critical results of the theory of retrial queues. Chapters discuss: analysis of single-server retrial queues, including stationary and transient distribution of the number in the system, busy period, waiting time process, limit theorems, stochastic inequalities, traffic measurement multiserver retrial queues – ergodicity, explicit formulas, algorithmic solutions, limit theorems, approximations; advanced single-server and multiserver retrial queues – models with priority subscribers, non-persistent subscribers, finite source queues. Lecturers, researchers, and students in probability, statistics, operations research, telecommunications, and computer systems modeling analysis will find Retrial Queues to be an invaluable resource.
