In this study the nature of systems consisting of a single queue are first considered. Attention is then drawn to an analogy between such systems and storage systems.
A development of the single queue viz queues with feedback is considered after first considering feedback processes in general. The behaviour of queues, some with feedback loops, combined into networks is then considered. Finally, the application of such networks to the analysis of interconnected reservoir systems is considered and the conclusion drawn that such analytic methods complement the more recently developed mathematical programming methods by providing analytic solutions for
sub systems behaviour and thus guiding the development of a system model.
