Abstract:

This document reports on research progress in the following topics 1 Extreme Values of Queues - Several subtle technical problems remain to present the results in as general and natural setting as possible 2 Extreme Values of Stochastic Networks - Work should be completed by fall. After that the emphasis will change on this topic to the following one 3 Optimal Control of Networks of queues - This topic was not in the original proposal, but the investigators have made a breakthrough in this area that they intend to pursue 4 Point Processes Related to Extreme Values - Several results in the convergence of certain point processes to Poisson processes have been obtained. These are documented in two papers written under this grant and 5 Extreme Values of Point Processes - This is an area which will be developed later in the research effort. Author
