This updated and expanded edition of Fundamentals of Queueing Theory presents the analytic modeling of queues in a very accessible style using up-to-date examples. Though the detailed coverage of the fundamentals of analytic modeling remains virtually the same, scores of new material have been added to reflect the most recent approaches to the topic. Additionally, in the treatment of the advanced material, the authors have commingled mathematical details with numerical results and intuitive arguments.

Donald Gross is a diplomat, lawyer and policy expert who serves as adjunct fellow of the Pacific Forum, Center for Strategic and International Studies. A former State Department official, he has developed diplomatic strategy toward East Asia and negotiated sensitive agreements with China, Japan, South Korea and North Korea. Earlier, he was counselor of the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency and director of legislative affairs at the National Security Council in the White House.
