Extensions of Riordan matrices and Applications to Queueing models

초록 (Abstract)

In this dissertation, we study structural properties of Riordan matrices by using the concept of the Asequence and its generalizations. We propose various extensions of Riordan matrices to the extended Riordan matrix, the 3dimensional Riordan array and the generalized Riordan array, respectively.
First we observe the basic properties of a Riordan matrix and several wellknown extensions of Riordan matrices. These are devoted to the structural property of Riordan matrices and extended Riordan matrices. We consider an infinite lower triangular matrix $L=[\ell_{n,k}]_{n,k\in\mathrm{\mathbf{N_{0}}}}$ and a sequence $\Omega=(\omega_n)_{n\in\mathrm{\mathbf{N_{0}}}}$ called the (a,b)sequence such that every element $\ell_{n+1,k+1}$ except for column 0 can be expressed as
$$
\ell_{n+1,k+1}=\sum_{i=0}^{\lfloor{(nk)/m}\rfloor}\omega_{i}\ell_{nai,k+bi},\quad \omega_0\ne0
$$
where a and b are integers with a+b=m>0 and $b\ge0$. This concept generalizes the Asequence of a Riordan matrix. As a result, we explore several structural properties of Riordan matrices by means of (a,b)sequences. Further, we examine an equivalence relation on the set of formal power series with nonzero constant term. This is done both in terms of functional equations and also by interlacing two concepts from Riordan group theory, the Asequence and the Bell subgroup. A power series for one member of an equivalence class can be transformed into a power series for the rest of members in the equivalence class, and interpretations in terms of weighted lattice paths can also be given. On the other hand, the concept of an (a,b)sequence for b<0 provides an extended Riordan matrix defined on the ring of Laurent series over the complex field.
The main concept is a development of 3dimensional Riordan array. The set of 3D Riordan arrays forms a group under the 3D matrix multiplication. We discuss the group extension problem. Specifically we prove that the ddimensional Riordan group is isomorphic to the group obtained as semidirect product of d1 $\mathcal{F}_0$s and $\mathcal{F}_1$. We propose some applications of 3Riordan arrays to the 3dimensional lattice path counting problems.
Further, we introduce how the Riordan array method can be applied to the transient analysis of an M/M/1 queue starting with zero customers. We then extend this method to the generalized Riordan array with multiple support functions in order to deal with the transient analysis of an M/M/1 queue starting with any number of customers. We also study the transient analysis of an M/M/c queue by means of the column generating functions of the generalized Riordan array. It turns out that the generalized Riordan array, transition probability matrix and the orthogonal polynomials are closely tied to each other in the case of an M/M/c queueing model starting with zero customers. Numerical examples are also given to show how easily the transient probabilities obtained from the generalized Riordan array method can be computed.
