Example text

J. Each customer class ,r, has N customers in it. For each such class there is a rule , which determines how the customers in the class move around within the network. This rule is ha�ed on cycles with one being completed every time certain sequences of visits are executed. A simple rule of this type is given if a route is determined by a list of nodes which have to he visited in order. A cycle is completed once all the nodes in the list have been visited. Note that repeat visits to nodes within the list are permitted.

A more general rule is given if it is supposed that routing in each class is determined by an irreducible homogeneous Markov chain. Let njk denote the probability that the customer visits node k imme- he diately after departing node j. A cycle is completed when a given node is returned to . A� can he seen the routing rules include those mentioned in the previ ous secti o n. 86 must have just one solution since the solution determines the unique maximum of H. Repeated substitution is one of the most numerically efficient ways of solving the above sets of equations.
