  1. P. Lassila and J. Virtamo, Regenerative Simulation Analysis for Loss Systems: Single Link and Single Traffic Type Case, COST257, TD(97)43, 1997 (pdf)(bib)
    Abstract: When regenerative simulation is used for simulating blocking probabilities in loss systems, the estimator is known to be biased although strongly consistent. In this paper a method is developed for analysing the estimator's distribution as a function of increasing number of simulation cycles for the single link Erlang model. This allows us to examine in detail the effect of the choice of the regeneration state to the accuracy of the estimator in terms of its expected value and standard deviation. Some considerations on how the multiservice case can be analyzed are given as well.
