  • 5/23/2012 · Telecommunication
    The versatile Markovian point process was introduced by M. F. Neuts in 1979. This is a rich class of point processes which contains many familiar arrival process as very special cases. Recently, the Batch Markovian Arrival Process, a class of point processes which was subsequently shown tobe equivalent to Neuts' point process, has been studied using a more transparent notation.

    10/10/2011 · Telecommunication
    We study the performance of a statistical multiplexer whose inputs consist of a superposition of packetized voice sources and data. The performance analysis predicts voice packet delay distributions, which usually have a stringent requirement, as well as data packet delay distributions.

    6/10/2011 · Telecommunication
    Recent studies have shown that the superposition of packet sequences generated by packetized voice sources with speech detection exhibit high burstiness due to inherent correlations between successive interarrival times in the superposition stream.

    4/26/2011 · Telecommunication
    We present an overview of recent results related to the single server queue with general independent and identically distributed service times and a batch Markovian arrival process (BMAP).

    3/10/2011 · Telecommunication
    We develop an algorithm for numerically inverting multi-dimensional transforms.

    11/13/2010 · Telecommunication
    Much energy is being devoted to studying the promising new asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) technology for supporting multiservice high-speed communication networks-e.g., see Roberts [39]. As indicated in [39], interest in ATM is stimulated by two factors: First, by new technology making it possible to transmit and switch at very high bandwidths; and, second, by the growing demand for more sophisticated and powerful communication services.

    11/13/2010 · Telecommunication
    Two of the many many applications of queueing models in communications networks are sizing links in transport networks and buffers in routers. A fundamental part of a queueing model is the arrival process. A Markov-modulated Poisson process (MMPP) is an attractive model for describing backbone packet traffic.

    • Statistical analysis of very large datasets, measuring the impact of corporate culture on performance and race discrimination.

    This paper outlines a number of innovations that we have recently implemented in the Research Methodology Course at the University of Michigan's School of Public Health.

    3/29/2013 · Surveys
    THERE'S NO DOUBT that companies can benefit from workplace surveys and questionnaires. A GTE survey in the mid-1990s, for example} revealed that the performance of its different billing operations, as measured by the accuracy of bills sent out, was closely tied to the leadership style of the unit managers.

    This might come as a shock: Employees in large corporations sometimes mistakenly believe that they have been discriminated against. Admittedly, discrimination does occur, both in society and in the workplace. And as most attorneys know, many discrimination cases concern claims of either adverse treatment or adverse impact.

    Effective evidence-based managelnent requires analyzing data from a broad array of sources and conducting carefully designed pretest-posttest comparisons. However, our experience suggests that few businesses take that process to the next level by building merged datasets that can be used for rigorous pretest-posttest comparisons and meaningful statistical analyses.

    10/10/2012 · Surveys
    Companies are replacing paper surveys with Web-based versions that can dangerously distort the results.

    No contemporary guide exists for using statistics to prove causality in court. We outline a new theory explaining comprehension of causal graphs, and claim four hallmarks of causality are critical: Association, Prediction, Exclusion of Alternative Explanations, and Dose Dependence.

    4/23/2012 · Social Issues
    We distinguish between reverse discrimination and over-correction, arguing that the former should be used only to describe cases where well-qualified non-minority applicants are unjustifiably denied positions in organizations run by and/or staffed by minorities. Similarly, we argue over-correction should be used to describe well-qualified non-minority applicants who are unjustifiably denied positions in organizations run by non-minorities.
