The fixed-cycle traffic-light (FCTL) queue is the standard model for intersections with static signaling, where vehicles arrive, form a queue and depart during cycles controlled by a traffic light. Classical analysis of the FCTL queue based on transform methods requires a computationally challenging step of finding the complex-valued roots of some characteristic equation...

The dominant pole approximation (DPA) is a classical analytic method to obtain from a generating function asymptotic estimates for its underlying coefficients. We apply DPA to a discrete queue in a critical many-sources regime, in order to obtain tail asymptotics for the stationary queue length. As it turns out, this regime leads to a clustering of the poles of the generating...

We consider piecewise-deterministic Markov processes that occur as scaling limits of discrete-time Markov chains that describe the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). The class of processes allows for general increase and decrease profiles. Our key observation is that stationary results for the general class follow directly from the stationary results for the idealized TCP...

To investigate the quality of heavy-traffic approximations for queues with many servers, we consider the steady-state number of waiting customers in an M/D/s queue as s→∞. In the Halfin-Whitt regime, it is well known that this random variable converges to the supremum of a Gaussian random walk. This paper develops methods that yield more accurate results in terms of series...

We propose a new queueing model named the acquisition queue. It differs from conventional queueing models in that the server not only serves customers, but also performs acquisition of new customers. The server has to divide its energy between both activities. The number of newly acquired customers is uncertain, and the effect of the server’s acquisition efforts can only be seen...
