Title: Norton's theorem for batch routing queueing networks


Authors: Falko Bause, Richard Boucherie, Peter Buchholz




This paper shows that the aggregation and decomposition result known as Norton's theorem for queueing networks can be extended to a general class of batch routing queueing networks with product form solution,

that allows for multiple components to simultaneously release and receive (batches of) customers.
