Opening new directions in research in both discrete event dynamic systems as well as in stochastic control, this volume focuses on a wide class of control and of optimization problems over sequences o . . . . .
The aim of the book is to present the basic methods, approaches in a Markovian
level for the analysis of not too complicated systems. The main purpose is to understand
how models could be constructe . . . . .
In these lectures our attention is restricted to models with one queue. Situations with
multiple queues are treated in the course \Networks of queues." More advanced techniques
