If you have a question about this talk, please contact Elena Yudovina.

We give a few examples of stochastic networks problems (in transport, renewable energy, and communications) in which load balancing might be of interest. We then discuss load balancing in a call center model in some detail, and point out that (surprisingly!) instantaneous load balancing can lead to instability in that setting.

The call center model is joint work with Sasha Stolyar of Bell Labs (Murary Hill, NJ).

This talk is part of the Optimization and Incentives Seminar series.
