The fabric of this booklet relies on numerous classes which were brought for a very long time on the Moscow Institute for Physics and expertise. a few components have shaped the topic of lectures given at a variety of universities through the international: Freie Universitat of Berlin, Chalmers college of know-how and the collage of Goteborg, collage of California at Santa Barbara and others. the topic of the publication is the speculation of queues. This idea, as a mathematical self-discipline, starts with the paintings of A. Erlang, who tested a version of a cell station and bought the recognized formulation for the distribution of the variety of busy strains that is named after him. Queueing idea has been utilized to the research of diverse versions: emergency relief, highway site visitors, computers, and so on. in addition to, it has result in a number of similar disciplines equivalent to reliability and stock theories which care for comparable types. however, many components of the idea of queues have been built as a "pure technological know-how" without sensible purposes. the purpose of this e-book is to offer the reader an perception into the mathematical equipment which might be utilized in queueing thought and to provide examples of fixing issues of assistance from those equipment. after all, the alternative of the equipment is kind of subjective. hence, many well known effects haven't even been mentioned.
