Introduction to Queueing Theory and Stochastic

... Chapter 4 aims to assist the student to perform simulations of queueing systems. Simulations are useful and important in the many cases where exact analytical results are not available. An important learning objective of this book is to train students to perform queueing simulations. Chapter 5 provi ...

... n this module, we investigate the reliability of a component that can be repaired. In contrast to nonrepairable components, modeling of repairable components requires use of a random process. We begin our effort in Section 12.2 by introducing renewal theory for the ordinary renewal process, as it is ...

Probability, Random Processes, and Ergodic Properties

... This book has been written for several reasons, not all of which are academic. This material was for many years the first half of a book in progress on information and ergodic theory. The intent was and is to provide a reasonably self-contained advanced treatment of measure theory, probability theor ...

Essentials of Stochastic Processes

... The Markov chains chapter has been reorganized. The chapter on Poisson processes has moved up from third to second, and is now followed by a treatment of the closely related topic of renewal theory. Continuous time Markov chains remain fourth, with a new section on exit distributions and hitting tim ...

On Worst-Case to Average-Case Reductions for NP Problems

... key. Lempel [Lem79] later showed that the same cryptosystem can in fact be broken on most keys. Therefore, the NP hardness of breaking a cryptosystem in the worst case does not in general have any implications for cryptographic security. The gap between worst-case and average-case hardness is even m ...
