Mathematics Seminar: "A Mathematical Take on Waiting-in-Line" -
Ira Gerhardt of Manhattan College will talk on "A Mathematical Take on Waiting-in-Line" on Friday, April 4. In his talk, he will approach the problem of waiting-in-line using several tools from queuing theory. A simple example of a real-world waiting-system will be presented showing how its behavior of the system size using stochastic modeling and differential equations can be analyzed. Variations in real-world systems will lead to a discussion on changing model requirements.
Price: Free and open to the public
