On an Elementary Characterization of the Increasing Covex Ordering, with an Application
In this short note, we present a simple characterization of the increasing convex ordering icx on the set of probability distributions on IR. We show its usefulness by providing a very short proof of a comparison result ...
Distributed Parallelism Considered Harmful
We consider a model of a distributed parallel processing system that shows that parallel versus sequential processing is beneficial only under conditions of light load. Our results are valid under general assumptions on ...
On Stochastic Approximations Driven by Sample Averages: Convergence Results via the ODE Method
We consider a class of projected stochastic approximation algorithms drive by sample averages. These algorithms arise naturally in problems of on-line parametric optimization for discrete event dynamical systems., e.g., ...

Interpolation Approximations for Symmetric Fork-Join Queues
In this paper we propose a family of heuristic approximations for the expected response time of K-dimensional symmetric Fork-Join systems in statistical equilibrium with general inter-arrival and service time distributions. ...
