This paper presents a classified bibliography organized into six sections--static design models, dynamic control models, models involving queue discipline control, miscellaneous models, tutorial and survey papers, and books that have specific portions devoted to design and control. Some of the above categories are further subdivided when appropriate, and explanations of the types of models in each category and subcategory precede the actual list of references. Papers that fall into more than one category are cross-referenced.

    We consider a stochastic congestion system modeled as a birth-death process. Customers arrive from a Poisson process. The departure rate when I customers are in the system is non-decreasing, concave, and bounded above in I. The cost structure consists of a linear holding cost and a random reward...

    Drawing on the proposer-responder game examined by Andreoni, Harbaugh, and Vesterlund (2003), I experimentally test four variations of a principal-agent relationship with fixed pay and real effort. Depending on the treatment, the principal can voluntarily, but at her own expense, (1) only reward...

    We consider a queuing network with Poisson arrivals at each node. At each service completion epoch, a reward is received and the serviced customer changes nodes or leaves the system according to specified probabilities. In addition, linear holding costs are incurred. The problem is to schedule...

    We propose an approach to constructing a new type of design, a sliced space-filling design, intended for computer experiments with qualitative and quantitative factors. The approach starts with constructing a Latin hypercube design based on a special orthogonal array for the quantitative factors...
