Undergraduate Student Research Award (USRA) opportunity at the Royal Military College of Canada, Kingston ON, May to August 2018

Supervisor:  Dr. Mohan Chaudhry

Project Title: Inverting transforms that arise in the study of Markov models

Many of the analytic solutions in queueing and other stochastic processes are derived in various transforms such as probability generating functions and Laplace transforms. The problems become more complicated if there are unknowns in the transforms. Several complicated algorithms/methods have been proposed to invert such transforms. We have developed a software program which inverts such transforms using the roots of high degree polynomials and transcendental functions. Our method of inverting such transforms is much more efficient and fast when compared with other methods.

Student's role: The student's role will be to invert such transforms using mathematical tools such as MAPLE/MATLAB or MATHEMATICA and QROOT, a software developed by us as well as do some mathematical typing.
