Unformatted text preview: IEOR 4703: Homework 6 Refer to the Lecture Notes 8 (Importance Sampling) (and Class Lecture 7) for the basics needed for this assignment. (Only Problems 3(c)(d) requires programming/simulating.) 1. Consider the random walk R k = 1 + + k , R = 0, in which the iid i are of the form i = S i T i , where { S i } are iid exponential at rate and independently the { T i } are iid exponential at rate . This yields the famous M/M/1 queue (service times S , interarrival times T ) with arrival rate and service time rate . We assume (stability) that = / < 1 which is equivalent to the random walk having negative drift, E ( S T ) < 0. Our objective is to use importance sampling to compute P ( D > b ), equivalently P ( M > b ). (Here D denotes stationary customer delay, and M the maximum of the random walk.) (a) Show that the Lundberg constant > 0, E ( e ) = 1 , always exists, and find its value. (b) Letting f ( x ) denote the density function of = S T , and letting g ( x ) = e x f ( x ), the alternative density for use in importance sampling, show that...
