Queueing Introduction to Queueing Theory for Computer Science

Hungarian Contributions to the Theory of Queues In this section I would like to mention several Hungarian researchers without discussing their main results in details. The selection is subjective and it is based on my information collected during my research activities. and his Work There is no doubt that he is the most well-known,reputed and celebrated Hungarian in this field. In the second half of 1994, many scientific institutions (including the Institute of Mathematical Statistics, Operations Research Society of America, The Institute of Management Sciences, and Hungarian Academy of Sciences) celebrated his 70th birthday, which took place on August 21, 1994. In addition, a special volume, Studies in Applied Probability (31A of Journal of Applied Probability appeared in the first half of 1994 honoring Professor was devoted to his 70th birthday written by where we can read ” Because of his extraordinary accomplishments, Professor is one of the most celebrated contemporary probabilists. He has published over 200 papers and books, many of which have had a huge impact on the contemporary theory of probability and stochastic processes. His numerous works are yet to be explored. Although some people view Takács as a queueing theorist, it is just one of many areas of his remarkable influence. This opinion about him is also because queueing theory (or, as they say, just queueing) has become so overwhelmingly popular, and because Takács is indisputably one of the greatest contributors to the theory who ever lived. This may outshine his other contributions to the theory of probability, stochastic processes, combinatorial analysis, and even physics. For instance, it is not widely known that Takács was the first to introduce and study semi-Markov processes in the early fifties and which he had been using even before 1954, perhaps one of the most extraordinary achievements in the theory of stochastic processes in the second half of the twentieth century.
