This revised and expanded edition of Fundamentals of Queueing Theory presents the analytic modeling of queues using up-to-date examples. Though the detailed coverage of the fundamentals of analytic modeling remains virtually the same, this new edition contains additional material (call centers and simulation), discussions (Transform Approximation Method and Level Crossing Analysis), and exercises. A fresh emphasis on the telecommunications boom enlivens the text, and spreadsheet programs for Excel and Quattro on the book's related Web site aids in understanding the sensitivity of waiting-line systems to parameter and environmental changes. Software programs for additional systems are spread throughout the text. In the treatment of the advanced material, the authors have commingled mathematical details with numerical results and intuitive arguments. Related website http://mason.gmu.edu/~jshortle/fqt4th.html
