Description

Leader of the group Stochastics: Bert Zwart.

 

Many natural and man-made systems and processes are driven by random phenomena. Examples can be found in areas such as communication, energy, information, logistics, and transportation systems. In order to model, describe, and improve such systems, our group develops and studies probabilistic, operational and statistical models. Our group’s analysis of these models relies on techniques from fundamental probability theory, queueing theory, stochastic scheduling, spatial stochastics and stochastic geometry. Our work with various companies in these areas, as well as with top researchers and universities across the globe, ensures our position at the forefront of every aspect of this research field.

Bart Kamphorst finds best possible scheduling policy for servers in information-scarce settings

Bart Kamphorst finds best possible scheduling policy for servers in information-scarce settings

Nobody fancies a long wait between requesting some kind of online service and actually receiving that service. Therefore, in many situations, ICT-specialists aim to design their servers in such a way that their customers are served in an efficient manner. Research of CWI PhD-student Bart Kamphorst contributes a number of performance analyses of blind algorithms and moreover identifies a blind algorithm that is in some sense optimal.

More efficient ambulance planning with new mathematical models

More efficient ambulance planning with new mathematical models

In serious life-threatening situations a fast ambulance response is required. Late arrivals can have a serious impact on the well-being of the patients and can also have consequences regarding policy making. In practice, providing a fast ambulance response time is not always possible. PhD candidate Martin van Buuren of CWI has developed mathematical models that can help to realize fast response times.
