    We compare the performance of seven methods in computing or approximating service levels for nonstationary M(t)/M/s(t) queueing systems: an exact method (a Runge-Kutta ordinary-differential-equation solver), the randomization method, a closure (or surrogate-distribution) approximation, a direct...

    We study a new class of infinite dimensional Lie algebras, which has important applications to the theory of integrable equations. The construction of these algebras is very similar to the one for automorphic functions and this motivates the name automorphic Lie algebras. For automorphic Lie...

    Let G be a locally compact group. Then Ma (G), the space of all absolutely continuous measures on G, has a bounded approximate identity. Baker and Baker proved that L(S) (the space of all measures � ? M(S) so that maps x ? ex *|�| and x ? |�|*ex are weak continuous from a locally...

    In this paper, we consider random generalization of completely generalized nonlinear variational-like inclusions and propose an iterative algorithm for computing their approximate solutions. We prove that the approximate solutions obtained by proposed algorithm converge to the exact solution of...
