  • Queueing theory: bulk and nonbulk queues; discrete-time queues.
  • Rootfinding of polynomials and transcedental equations, eigenvalues.

Biography

After receiving his Ph.D degree from Kurukshetra University, Dr. Mohan Chaudhry moved to Canada as a senior postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto before moving to the Royal Military College of Canada in 1967.

Since 1967, he has been in the department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the Royal Military College of Canada. He currently holds the position of a professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. He severed as the Head of the Department from 1990 to 1991, and is currently the chair of degree in Mathematics and Business Administration and the President of Graduate Committee of the Department. He has been an invited professor at George Mason University, USA in 1988; a distinguished professor both at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology in 2001, Ghent University, Belgium in 2004.

In addition to being a member, Dr. Chaudhry has held and continues to hold position as an associate editor for several Operational Research Journals. He organizes and chairs sessions for various organizations. In 2003, Dr. Chaudhry's contributions were recognized by the Canadian Operational Research Society that gave him the award of Merit. In 2005, he was given the service award by the same society. Also, in 2005, his paper "An invariance relation and a unified method to derive stationary queue lengths" was adjudged the best paper of the year (in Industrial Engineering) by the Korean Federation of Science and Technology.
