Automated container transport system between inland port and terminals
Jianlong Zhang, Petros A. Ioannou, Anastasios Chassiakos
In this article we propose a new concept called automated container transportation system between inland port and terminals (ACTIPOT) which involves the use of automated trucks to transfer containers between an inland port and container terminals....
Fast simulation of overflow probabilities in a queue with Gaussian input
A. B. Dieker, M. Mandjes
In this article, we study a queue fed by a large number n of independent discrete-time Gaussian processes with stationary increments. We consider the many-sources asymptotic regime, that is, the buffer-exceedance threshold B and the...
How heavy-tailed distributions affect simulation-generated time averages
George S. Fishman, Ivo J. B. F. Adan
For statistical inference based on telecommunications network simulation, we examine the effect of a heavy-tailed file-size distribution whose corresponding density follows an inverse power law with exponent α + 1, where the shape...
A discrete event method for wave simulation
This article describes a discrete event interpretation of the finite difference time domain (FDTD) and digital wave guide network (DWN) wave simulation schemes. The discrete event method is formalized using the discrete event system specification...
