We investigate fast simulation techniques for estimating the unreliability in large Markovian models of highly reliable systems for which analytical0numerical techniques are difficult to apply+ We first show mathematically that for " small " time horizons, the relative simulation error, when using the importance sampling techniques of failure biasing and… (More)

In this paper, we propose a novel analytical method, called scheduling time bound analysis, to find a tight upper bound of the worst-case response time in a distributed real-time embedded system, considering execution time variations of tasks, jitter of input arrivals, and scheduling anomaly behavior in a multi-tasking system all together. By analyzing the… (More)

— Finding a tight upper bound of the worst-case response time in a distributed real-time embedded system is a very challenging problem since we have to consider execution time variations of tasks, jitter of input arrivals, scheduling anomaly behavior in a multi-tasking system, all together. In this paper, we translate the problem as an optimization problem… (More)

We study a single-product periodic-review inventory model in which the ordering quantity is either zero or at least a minimum order size+ The ordering cost is a linear function of the ordering quantity, and the demand in different time periods are independent random variables+ The objective is to characterize the inventory policies that minimize the total… (More)

We consider quadratic forms of martingale differences and establish a central limit theorem under mild and easily verifiable conditions+ By approximating Fourier transforms of stationary processes by martingales, our central limit theorem is applied to the smoothed periodogram estimate of spectral density functions+ Our results go beyond earlier ones by… (More)
