*J. Virtamo and S. Aalto*, **Blocking probabilities in a transient system**, COST257, TD(97)14, 1997 (bib)**Abstract:** The dynamic VP bandwidth management scheme developed by Mocci et al. in a series of papers calls for the calculation of the average blocking probability over a finite time interval of a system in a transient state. We develop a ``precision weapon'' which allows one to find the temporal evolution of the probability of the blocking state without the need to solve the probabilities of all the other states or to find the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a very large matrix corresponding to the full system.
