These volumes are the court cases of the 1st targeted curiosity assembly instigated and arranged by way of the joint Technical part and faculty in utilized chance of ORSA and THlS. This assembly, which came about January 5-7, 1981 at Florida Atlantic college in Boca Raton, Florida, had an identical identify as those complaints: utilized Probability-Computer technological know-how, the Interface. The aim of that convention was once to accomplish a gathering of, and a go fertilization among, teams of researchers who, from varied beginning issues, had come to paintings on comparable difficulties, usually constructing related methodologies and instruments. this sort of teams are the utilized probabilists, lots of whom contemplate their box an offspring of arithmetic, and who locate their motivation in lots of components of software. the opposite is that workforce of computing device scientists who, through the years, have stumbled on an expanding want of their paintings for using probabilistic types. the main noticeable zone of universal technique among those teams is networks of queues, Hhich on its own might have been the subject matter of a whole convention. FunctionQl parts that are, or have gotten, resources of fascinating difficulties are laptop functionality research, info base research, research of conversation protocols, facts networks, and combined voice-data phone networks. The reader can upload to this record through dealing with the papers in those Proceedings.

Geometric Numerical Integration and Schrodinger Equations

The objective of geometric numerical integration is the simulation of evolution equations owning geometric homes over lengthy occasions. Of specific value are Hamiltonian partial differential equations as a rule coming up in program fields akin to quantum mechanics or wave propagation phenomena.

1 The matrices P(v,t), v essential role here. > 0, t ~ 0, introduced in [16], play an For any specific description of the VMPP, they may be computed by the numerical integration of the differential equations (5) of [16]. In the simple case of Poisson arrivals, the P(v,t) are scalars, given by the Poisson probabilities with parameter At. The states j, 12 j ~ m, of the irreducible Markov process with generator Q*, defined in (3) of [16], will be called the arrival phases. We shall first study the joint stationary density {x(i,j), i 1 < j time.

Suppose that a customer's class neither changes nor affects his progress as he moves through the series of queues. reversible. ,cn ) be the classes of the n customers in the series of queues arranged in order of their arrival at the first queue in the series so that, for example, c 1 is the class of the customer who has been in the node the least time. at some point in time ~(x) Observe that if is given, its future evolution can be tracked by a simple updating procedure applied whenever an arrival at or departure from the node occurs.

Kelly This elegant presentation contains some important results. The proof of the product form theorem given in Section 2 is a nice illustration of the technique which consists in guessing Q' to verify some invariant measure.
