The diffusion approximation refers to using the stationary distribution of the diffusion limit as an approximation of the diffusion-scaled process (say, the workload) in the original MQN. To validate such an approximation amounts to justifying the interchange of two limits, t → ∞ and k → ∞, with t being the time index and k, the scaling parameter. Here, we show this interchange of limits is justified under a p∗th moment condition on the primitive data, the interarrival and service times; and we provide an explicit characterization of the required order (p∗), which depends naturally on the desired order of moment of the workload process.", keywords = "Diffusion limit, Interchange of limits, Multiclass queueing network, Uniform stability", author = "Heng-Qing YE and YAO, {David D.}", year = "2018", month = dec, doi = "10.1214/18-AAP1401", language = "English", volume = "28", pages = "3652--3697", journal = "Annals of Applied Probability", issn = "1050-5164", publisher = "Institute of Mathematical Statistics", number = "6", }
