Statistica Neerlandica, 2006, vol. 60, issue 1, 73-78

Abstract: This paper deals with the difficult problem of calculating the waiting‐time probabilities in the M/G/1 queue with retrials. The waiting‐time distribution is approximated by a gamma distribution by matching the first two moments. Numerical results indicate that this approximation performs satisfactory for practical purposes.
