The paper reviews recent results of D. Perry, W. Stadje and S. Zacks, on functionals of stopping times and the associated compound Poisson process with lower and upper linear boundaries. In particular, formulae of these functionals are explicitly developed for the total expected discounted cost of discarded service in an M/ G/1 queue with restricted accessibility; for the expected total discounted waiting cost in an M/ G/1 restricted queue; for the shortage, holding and clearing costs in an inventory system with continuous input; for the risk in sequential estimation and for the transform of the busy period when the upper boundary is random.

    We consider a system of three parallel queues with Poisson arrivals and exponentially distributed service requirements. The service rate for the heavily loaded queue depends on which of the two underloaded queues are empty. We derive the lowest-order asymptotic approximation to the joint...

    For (s, S) inventory systems, we derive sample path derivatives of performance measures with respect to the two parameters s and S. These derivatives yield derivative estimators which can be estimated from a single sample path or simulation of the inventory system, in some cases not even...

    Retailers facing uncertain demand can use observed sales to update demand estimates. However, such learning is limited by the amount of inventory carried; when demand exceeds inventory (i.e., when a stock-out event occurs), a retailer in general cannot observe actual demand. We propose using...

    Abstract  The WRKY family is one of the major groups of plant-specific transcriptional regulators. Arabidopsis thaliana WRKY25, which is induced by heat stress, is one of the group I WRKY proteins and responds to both abiotic and biotic stress. This study has examined the regulatory role...

    We study a periodic review inventory model with a nonperishable product over an infinite planning horizon. The demand for the nonperishable product arrives according to a Poisson process. Lost sales are unobservable but the stockout times are observable. We formulate the problem as a dynamic...

    It is proved that the space of all order-preserving functionals with finite supports is a compact, and if the supports are one-point sets, then this space is the Stone-Chech compactification of a given Tychonoff space. Bibliography: 4 titles.

    The linear spatial stability of the incompressible corner flow under pressure gradient has been studied. A self-similar form has been used for the mean flow, which reduces the related problem to the solution of a two-dimensional problem. The stability problem was formulated using the parabolised...
