Traditionally, multivariate discrete data are analyzed by means of log-linear models. In this paper we show how an algebraic approach leads naturally to alternative models, parametrized in terms ofâ€¦ (More)

Consider an M/G/1/FCFS queue in which customers arrive according to a Poisson process with intensity A > 0. The inter-arrival times of the customers are gathered in the sequence (Ai),=__l and theâ€¦ (More)

We analyze the distribution of the number of claims and the aggregate claim sizes in an excess-of-loss reinsurance contract based upon the use of point processes. We first deal with a singleâ€¦ (More)

This article is devoted to the investigation of limit theorems for mixed maxâ€“sum processes with renewal type stopping indexes. Limit theorems of weak convergence type are obtained as well asâ€¦ (More)

Under weak conditions the average virtual waiting time converges exponentially fast to its limit. For this reason this quantity has been suggested as a measure of performance for queueing systems. Weâ€¦ (More)
