Aims to provide to the reader the instruments essential to follow semi-Markov procedures in real-life problems.

The ebook is self-contained and, ranging from a low point of likelihood techniques, steadily brings the reader to a deep wisdom of semi-Markov processes.

Presents homogeneous and non-homogeneous semi-Markov procedures, in addition to Markov and semi-Markov rewards processes.

The options are basic for lots of purposes, yet they aren't as completely awarded in different books at the topic as they're here.

Let us consider a queueing system composed of a server, a process of customer arrivals, a process of service times and a discipline rule of the type "first in, first out" (FIFO), which means the first customer present in the system is the first served. In many models of queueing theory, the arrival process is assumed to be a renewal process.
