Strategic behavior in an observable retrial queue

We consider a retrial queueing system, in which customer are now aware when the server becomes available and have to actively check it.

Strategic customers decide when to check considering queue length and the age of their information.

We use Dynamic Programming approach to construct customers' cost functions and obtain optimal and/or Nash Equilibrium strategies.

Joint work with Ricky Roet-Green (U. Rochester).
