3. Course contents *

The following subjects form a central part of this course: phase-type and matrix exponential distributions, Markov arrival processes, Quasi-Birth-Death, M/G/1-type and GI/M/1-type Markov chains (with finite and infinite state spaces), iterative algorithms to solve non-linear matrix equations (e.g., functional iterations, cyclic reduction, logarithmic reduction, Newton iteration, etc.). Software tools are also discussed.
