Short Run Dynamics of Multi-Class Queues

Technical Report No. UCB/ERL M93/76
1993

We study the dynamics of general queueing systems with multiple classes of customers undergoing self-selection. We prove that if the capacity of a queue is sufficiently large, the equilibrium arrival rate will be globally stable. As the capacity is decreased, the arrival rate typically oscillates near the equilibrium.
