Profit maximization and risk minimization in semi-Markovian networks

  • E. A. Lebedev
  • I. A. Makushenko


The problem of profit maximization and risk minimization under stationary conditions is considered for multichannel semi-Markovian networks. Systems of integral equations that describe data handling and profit accumulation in the network are subjected to asymptotic analysis. The objective functions of the optimization problems are expressed explicitly in terms of network parameters.
