— Models for predicting the performance of multi-plexed variable bit rate video sources are important for engineering a network. However, models of a single source are also important for parameter negotiations and call admittance algorithms. In this paper we propose to model a single video source as a Markov renewal process whose states represent different(More)
We develop algorithms for the computation of the distribution of the total reward accrued during [0, t) in a finite continuous-parameter Markov chain. During sojourns , the reward grows linearly at a rate depending on the state visited. At transitions, there can be instantaneous rewards whose values depend on the states involved in the transition.
