For a stochastic process co with absolutely continuous sample path derivative, a formula for the joint density of (T, Z), the position and height of the global maximum of É· in a closed interval, is given. The formula is derived using the generalized Rice's formula. The presented result can be applied both to stationary and non- stationary processes under mild assumptions on the process. The formula for the density is explicit but involves integrals that have to be computed using numerical integration. The computation of the density is discussed and some numerical examples are given.

    We provide a simple two-moment approximation formula for the mean waiting time in a GI/G/s queue. This formula has the form of a certain combination of the exact mean waiting times for the D/M/s, M/D/s and M/M/s queues, and hence it can be easily calculated by using some queueing tables. The...
