The workshop is organized by EURANDOM, the European Institute for Probability, Statistics and Stochastic Operations Research, in the framework of its program ‘Queueing and Performance Analysis’. The workshop is devoted to the study of queues, with special attention to ﬂuid queues and to extremes.
The study of performance measures for queues and ﬂuid queues often leads to questions about extremes of a stochastic process. This can be illustrated by considering Lindley’s equation, which appears for instance when studying waiting times and amount of work in the system. Essentially, Lindley’s equation is a reﬂected stochastic process which is pushed back to zero whenever the corresponding free stochastic process becomes negative. One way to study the solution of the equation is by analyzing the running maximum of the free process. The above example is an illustration of the often close relation between queues, ﬂuid queues and extremes.
The program of the workshop will consist of 30-minutes and 45-minutes lectures.
