When networks go bad: queues, delays, and bottlenecks

ICMS, Bayes Centre, 47 Potterrow, Edinburgh 1st Oct 5.30pm-7.30pm Free
MWS Queues

Waiting for the lights to change, waiting for a doctor’s appointment, waiting for a webpage to download -- we all experience queues and delays every day. Why do queues form? And can we alleviate congestion?

llze Ziedins (University of Auckland) will look at examples ranging from ramp meters in traffic networks, to patient pathways and prioritisation in healthcare delivery, to illustrate ways in which queues can misbehave, and discuss some recent results on how to manage them.

Doors will open at 5.30pm. Talk will start at 6.

Tickets are available via Eventbrite,https://icmsnetworksbad.eventb...
