Fundamentals of Queueing Theory
The definitive guide to queuing theory and it practical applications—features numerous real-world examples of scientific, engineering, and business applications Thoroughly updated and expanded to reflect the latest developments in the field, Fundamentals of Queueing Theory, Fifth Edition presents the statistical principles and processes involved in the analysis of the probabilistic nature of queues. Rather than focus narrowly on one or another application area, the authors illustrate the theory in practice across a range of fields, from computer science and various engineering disciplines to business and operations research. Critically, the text also provides a numerical approach to understanding and making estimations with queuing theory and provides comprehensive coverage of both simple and advanced queueing models. As with all preceding editions, this latest update of the classic text features a unique blend of the theoretical and timely real-world applications. The introductory section has been reorganized with expanded coverage of qualitative/non-mathematical approaches to queueing theory, including a high-level description of queues in everyday life. New sections on non-stationary fluid queues, fairness in queueing, and Little’s Law have been added, as has expanded coverage of stochastic processes, including the Poisson process and Markov chains. Each chapter provides a self-contained presentation of key concepts and formulas, to allow readers to focus independently on topics relevant to their interests A summary table at the end of the book outlines the queues that have been discussed and the types of results that have been obtained for each queue Examples from a range of disciplines highlight practical issues often encountered when applying the theory to real-world problems A companion website features QtsPlus, an Excel-based software platform that provides computer-based solutions for most queueing models presented in the book. Featuring chapter-end exercises and problems—all of which have been classroom-tested and refined by the authors in advanced undergraduate and graduate-level courses—Fundamentals of Queueing Theory, Fifth Edition is an ideal textbook for courses in applied mathematics, queueing theory, probability and statistics, and stochastic processes. This book is also a valuable reference for practitioners in applied mathematics, operations research, engineering, and industrial engineering.

The new Mathematics General syllabus describes two pathways that start in Year 11. Even though both pathways share a common Preliminary course, students taking each pathway have specific learning needs, so we have published two levels of text for both Years 11 and 12. New Century Maths 11 (Pathway 1) has been written for the new Mathematics General course commencing in 2013. This book caters for students who have completed Stage 5.1 by the end of Year 10 and are headed towards the workforce or further training after school. The book encourages the development of practical mathematical skills for life. It supports a vocational pathway that is content-endorsed but not HSC-examinable. This book includes access to the NelsonNet password-protected website which contains student and teacher resources for schools that use New Century Maths 11 as a core resource. To download a sample chapter, Earning money, click the Download Sample Material button. The corresponding Year 12 text, New Century Maths 12 General Mathematics 1 HSC Course, will be available in mid 2013.

The interest earned on a bank account, the arrangement of seeds in a sunflower, and the shape of the Gateway Arch in St. Louis are all intimately connected with the mysterious number e. In this informal and engaging history, Eli Maor portrays the curious characters and the elegant mathematics that lie behind the number. Designed for a reader with only a modest background in mathematics, this biography of e brings out that number’s central importance in mathematics and illuminates a golden era in the age of science.
This book, designed for a two-semester course on Engineering Mathematics, presents concepts in adequate depth using step-by-step problem solving approach. Enriched with a plethora of solved examples, practice problems and engineering applications, it offers a unique combination of theory and practice in a lucid and user-friendly manner.
These books are specially written for students who are pursuing diploma in accountancy and other professional courses like finance, business studies, business administration and commerce. Business practitioners may also find this book useful. Additional questions and examples to each chapter have been incorporated to enhance understanding of the concepts discussed.
