Efficient Monte-Carlo simulation of a product-form model for a cellular system with dynamic resource sharing
Philip J. Fleming, Dennis Schaeffer, Burton Simon
Pages: 3-21
DOI: 10.1145/203091.203092
There are many ways for users to share the radio spectrum allocated to a cell in a cellular phone system. We analyze a commonly proposed scheme wh ere the cell is divided into s sectors. Each sector has exclusive access to a...

Analysis of an importance sampling estimator for tandem queues
Paul Glasserman, Shing-Gang Kou
Pages: 22-42
DOI: 10.1145/203091.203093
We analyze the performance of an importance sampling estimator for a rare-event probability in tandem Jackson networks. The rare event we consider corresponds to the network population reaching K before returning to ø,...

Fast simulation of rare events in queueing and reliability models
Philip Heidelberger
Pages: 43-85
DOI: 10.1145/203091.203094
This paper surveys efficient techniques for estimating, via simulation, the probabilities of certain rare events in queueing and reliability models. The rare events of interest are long waiting times or buffer overflows in queueing systems, and...
