## Introduction to queueing theoryThe book is not intended to be characterized as either 'theoretical' or 'applied'. The emphasis of the book is on understanding the interplay of mathematical and heuristic reasoning that underlies queueing theory and its applications, with the following two objectives: 1) To give the student sufficient understanding of the theory so that he will be able to apply it in the practice of operations research, and 2) To give the student the background required to read the literature and embark on research. |
