Comparison of Perturbation Analysis Estimate and Forward Difference Estimate in a Markov Renewal Process

  • Published : 2000.12.01


Using simulation, we compare the perturbation analysis estimate and the forward difference estimate for the first and second derivatives of performance measures in a Markov renewal process. We find the perturbation analysis estimate has much les mean squared error than the traditional forward difference estimate.
