Full Summary: STOCHASTICS SEMINAR SERIES -- Rare Events and Amy's Threshold Network

In the first of this series of seminars and in a paper [1], Amy analyzed heavy traffic limits and pooling in a two server network with a finite threshold at one server and the overflowing customers going to a second server with an infinite capacity waiting area. I will use Amy's system to illustrate the methodology in [2] for obtaining exact asymptotics for the stationary distribution ( i, j ) for this system and discuss pooling in the rare event context. My hope is that the audience will realize that they can use the methodology in [2] to analyze rare events in systems of their own choosing.
