Simultaneous Transient Analysis of QBD Markov Chains for all Initial Configurations using a Level Based Recursion

Abstract

A new algorithm to assess transient performance measures for every possible initial configuration of a quasi-birth-and-death (QBD) Markov chain is introduced. We make use of the framework termed QBDs with marked time epochs that transforms the transient problem into a stationary one by applying a discrete Erlangization and constructing a reset Markov chain… (More)
