Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


An algebraic approach to the modeling and performance evaluation of business processes is developed based on fork-join queueing network formalism and idempotent algebra. As an illustration, a model of computer system security operation is considered. We introduce a related performance measure, and show how it may be used to analysis of actual systems.
