In the past few decades, the processor-sharing (PS) model has received considerable attention in the queueing theory community and in the field of performance evaluation of computer and communication systems. The scarce resource is simultaneously shared among all users in these systems. PS models are used for modeling resource sharing mechanisms and have many applications in communication networks, as well as in logistics and manufacturing.
