    Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademic


    This paper deals with the difficult problem of calculating the waiting-time probabilities in the M/G/1 queue with retrials. The waiting-time distribution is approximated by a gamma distribution by matching the first two moments. Numerical results indicate that this approximation performs satisfactory for practical purposes.
