Optimal Design

Part of the Springer Text in Statistics book series (STS)


So far in this book we have developed methods of quantifying the performance of stochastic systems. For example, we developed discrete- and continuous-time Markov chains to study manufacturing systems, weather systems, inventory systems, manpower systems, financial systems, telecommunication systems, etc. In Chapter 7 we developed semi-Markov processes to study the above systems under less restrictive assumptions.
