Summary on Grant Application Form
This proposal is partly a resubmission of 'PANDORA' which has been updated so as to (a) focus on the underlying theory and methodologies any explicit application in which we are not personally experts, in line with referees' comments (b) take into account the constructive comme the referees. The methodological objectives therefore remain similar but have been elaborated and extended considerably.The technical issues that will be addressed are: Definition of performance optimisation problems in terms of queues with non-standard featui of the relevant novel queueing systems; Derivation of appropriate static and dynamic optimisation algorithms, with transient analysis for the Incorporation of higher moments to account for quality of service; Worst case analysis of systems operating under different environments, de feasibility envelopes; Resource pricing, e.g. in grid-like models; Validation; Pilot applications to industrially relevant systems.
