   LÚvy mini course  

1-2 November, 2016



part of


Data Driven Operations Management






The mini course will be a presentation of the book "Queues and LÚvy Fluctuation Theory" (Springer 2015) by its authors Krzysztof Debicki and Michel Mandjes.

The book provides an extensive introduction to queueing models driven by LÚvy-processes as well as a systematic account of the literature on LÚvy-driven queues. The objective is to make the reader familiar with the wide set of probabilistic techniques that have been developed over the past decades, including transform-based techniques, martingales, rate-conservation arguments, change-of-measure, importance sampling, and large deviations. On the application side, it demonstrates how LÚvy traffic models arise when modelling current queueing-type systems (as communication networks) and includes applications to finance.


Queues and LÚvy Fluctuation Theory will appeal to postgraduate students and researchers in mathematics, computer science, and electrical engineering. Basic prerequisites are probability theory and stochastic processes.
