A novel algorithmic method is proposed to fit matrix geometric distributions of desired order to empirical data or arbitrary discrete distributions. The proposed method effectively combines two existing approaches from two different disciplines: well-established model reduction methods used in system theory and moment matching methods of applied probability that employ second-order discrete phase-type distributions. The proposed approach is validated with exhaustive numerical examples including well-known statistical data. Copyright

Quantifying input uncertainty in an assemble-to-order system simulation with correlated input variables of mixed types Akçay, Alp; Biller, B. (IEEE, 2014)We consider an assemble-to-order production system where the product demands and the time since the last customer arrival are not independent. The simulation of this system requires a multivariate input model that generates ...
Kosar, T.; Akturk I.; Balman, M.; Wang X. (2011)Modern collaborative science has placed increasing burden on data management infrastructure to handle the increasingly large data archives generated. Beside functionality, reliability and availability are also key factors ...
Yazıcı, Mehmet Akif; Akar, Nail (IEEE, 2013)WLANs employing IEEE802.11 standards suffer from a performance anomaly that drags down the fast nodes in the WLAN due to the slow nodes. Air time fairness has been proposed to battle this anomaly. We propose a novel ...
