•     Dr. Quan-lin Li received a doctorate degree from The Institute of Applied Mathematics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1998. After graduation, he was an associate researcher at the State Key Laboratory of Pattern Recognition, Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences during July 1999 to December 2003. From December 2003 to October 2009, he was a Tsinghua University Industrial Associate professor in the Department of Engineering, and from October 2009 to January 2019, he was a professor at the School of Economics and Management of Yanshan University; now he is a professor and doctoral supervisor at the School of Economics and Management of Beijing University of Technology.

     

        Since September 1999, Quan-lin Li has successively studied in foreign universities such as Winnipeg University in Canada, Carleton University in Canada, University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Complutense University of Madrid in Spain and University of Macau to engaged in random models, queuing networks, computer networks, network security, network resource management, network entropy decision-making, supermarket models, RFID technology and applications, Internet of Things, big data, cloud computing, blockchain, data center networks, smart energy networks , Medical service system, supply chain management and other aspects of cooperative research work.

     

         In terms of theoretical research, Li Quanlin proposed the RG-decomposition method of stochastic models in the world, and systematically developed the main basic theory of RG-decomposition of stochastic models; using RG-decomposition method to solve some important stochastic systems (such as queuing network, Computer network, network security, Internet of Things, cloud computing, blockchain and medical service system) performance evaluation, system decision-making and risk management and other key calculation issues, provided effective calculation methods for large-scale complex random models and develop corresponding Numerical calculation and analysis platform. This research result was published in 2010 by Springer in the English monograph "Constructive Computation in Stochastic Models with Applications: RG-Factorizations".

    • Markov reward processes

      Markov reward processes can accurately model practical systems that evolve stochastically over time. A Markov reward process consists of two elements: A Markov environment and an associated reward structure. Chapter 11 in the book by Q.L. Li [2010] provides an excellent survey on this research direction.

    • Crucial generalization for the matrix-analytic methods

      Grassmann and Heyman [1993] gave the same factorization for an irreducible Markov chain of GI/G/1 type, while Heyman [1995] extended the result to an irreducible and positive recurrent Markov chain with infinitely-many states. Zhao [2000] obtained a UL-type RG-factorization for the matrix I-P for the first time. For a level dependent QBD process, Li and Cao [2004] first providedthe UL- and LU-types of RG-factorizations. Li and Zhao [2002, 2003, 2004] and Li and Liu [2004] constructed the two ty

    • The censoring technique

      The censored Markov chain, also called watched Markov chain, was first considered
      by Lévy [1951, 1952, 1958]. Since then, the censored Markov chains have been very useful
      in the study of Markov chains. Kemeny, Snell and Knapp [1976] applied the censoring
      technique to show that each recurrent Markov chain has a positive regular measure
      unique to multiplication by a scalar. Freedman [1983] used the censoring technique
      to approximate countable Markov chains for the limiting behavior and also

    • Sensitivity analysis

      Infinitesimal perturbation analysis is a sensitivity-analytic technique for discreteevent
