Characterization of the departure process from an ME/ME/1 queue
RAIRO - Operations Research - Recherche Opérationnelle, Volume 38 (2004) no. 2, pp. 173-191.

In this paper we propose a family of finite approximations for the departure process of an ME/ME/1 queue indexed by a parameter k defined as the system size of the finite approximation. The approximations capture the interdeparture times from an ME/ME/1 queue exactly and preserve the lag correlations of inter-event times of the departures from an ME/ME/1 queue up to lag (k-1).
