  • In this paper, we study how the lack of a unique representation for the two-state Markovian arrival process (MAP (2)) can influence statistical estimation for the MAP (2)/G/1 queueing system. In particular, given two equivalent representations of the same MAP (2), we find that the steady-state distributions of the queuing system can be identified.
