Twinflows: Markov Chain Flow Decomposition for Tandem Queues with Blocking

By Thomas G. Robertazzi


In this short paper it is reported that the circulatory structure of two tandem finite buffer queues using Markovian statistics, indeed can be decomposed in a simple and elegant manner. The interesting point concerning any possible decomposition of flows is that one might reasonably think that for any non-product form network, the circulatory structure would consist of some arbitrary pattern of flows. Thus the existence of a simple, structured, decomposition is somewhat surprising. It may in fact lead to new computational algorithms for Markov chains
