Week Eleven – Overview of stochastic processes, definition of terms, differences between continuous and discrete systems, representative examples, classification scheme Elements of stochastic processes Context: Stochastic processes are systems that change over time in an uncertain manner. We discuss the basic components of such systems, including what is meant by a state, a transition, and how time is measured. A classification scheme is also presented to facilitate a better understanding of the applications. Purpose: To provide you with an overview of stochastic processes and how they are used in analyzing and designing systems that are governed by uncertainty.

Unformatted text preview: A second objective is to draw a distinction between continuous and discrete system and to develop a comprehensive classification scheme. Objectives: At the end of this lesson, you will be able to: 1. Identify the components of a stochastic process and to distinguish between the various types. 2. Describe the differences between continuous and discrete systems. 3. Explain the components of a queuing system including the queue discipline. 4. Describe the 5-field notation used to characterize a queuing system. 5. Identify the various properties of a stochastic process and classify it accordingly....
