The busy period of order n in the GI/D/∞ queue

  • A. Dvurečenskij (a1)


The busy period of the GI/D/∞ queue is determined as the time when at least one customer is served. Let v be the number of customers served during this period. The busy period of order n is defined as a busy period for which vn. In this paper we derive the exact distributions, integral equations, characteristic functions and all moments of those periods. Finally, some properties of the idle periods of order n are established.
