AbstractThe Markovian Arrival Process (MAP) is a tractable, versatile class of Markov renewal processes which has been extensively used to model arrival (or service) processes in queues. This thesis mainly deals with the first two moment matrices of the counts for the MAP. We derive asymptotic expansions for these two moment matrices and also derive efficient and stable algorithms to compute these matrices numerically. Simpler expressions for some of the classical mathematical descriptors of the superposition of independent MAPs also are derived.
