QUEUEING THEORY IN FAST-TIME SIMULATION OF AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL

Stanley P. E. Price

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The use of Queueing theory in the understanding certain Air Traffic Control problems is discussed. Two primary areas of application are given as: (a) Providing a theoretical comparison for experimental (simulation) results; (b) Obtaining solutions to certain small scale problems not justifying a simulation study. A brief introduction on the general theory is given, followed by a presentation of certain developments found in the literature applicable to Air Traffic Control, and especially as an analytical counterpart of Fast-Time Simulation. Two examples illustrate applications.
