Equilibrium and optimal arrival patterns to a server with opening and closing times

  title={Equilibrium and optimal arrival patterns to a server with opening and closing times},
  author={Refael Hassin and Yana Kleiner}
We consider a first-come first-served single-server system with opening and closing times. Service durations are exponentially distributed, and the total number of arrivals is a Poisson random variable. Naturally each customer wishes to minimize his waiting time. The process of choosing an arrival time is presented as a (non-cooperative) multiplayer game. Our goal is to find a Nash equilibrium game strategy. Glazer and Hassin (1983) assume that arrivals before the opening time of the system are… CONTINUE READING
