Dominance relations in polling systems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we compare several service disciplines commonly used in polling systems. We present a sample path comparison which allows us to evaluate the efficiency of the different policies based on the total amount of work found in the system at any time. The analysis is carried out for a large variety of polling schemes under fairly general conditions and can be used to construct a hierarchy of the different service schemes.
