"Diffusion Approximation for a Processor Sharing Queue in Heavy Traffic"


We discuss a diffusion approximation result for the queue length process of a GI/GI/1 processor sharing queue in heavy traffic. The main approach is to study a certain measure valued process, which encodes information about the residual service times and from which standard measures of performance such as queue length, workload and sojourn time can be recovered.
