Stochastic Comparison for Resource Sharing Models

1996, v.2, №4, 581-606

ABSTRACT

New models for resource sharing situations are defined. These models are Markovian versions of the drinking philosophers problem introduced by Chandy and Misra. They can be viewed as interacting particle systems, for which the classical stochastic comparison results for spin systems are generalised. Several applications to resource sharing models are proposed.
