Abstract

In a queueing system that does not serve each customer immediately upon his arrival, a risk-neutral customer will attempt to arrive at a time that minimizes the expected length of his wait. This paper extends the conventional analysis of queues by examining a model in which each customer can choose the time at which to join a queue. We consider a system in which a finite number of customers are simultaneously served at predetermined times that follow a known schedule.
