Some Aspects of Operational Research
In 1966, I published a book called “Applied Queueing Theory“ which was well-received by my professional colleagues. One pleasant result was that Dr. Alladi Ramakrishnan, Director of the Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Madras, India, invited me to spend some time at the Institute as a visiting fellow to deliver a series of six lectures on operational research. The term of a visiting fellowship, three months, was too long to be acceptable to a non-academic person, such as myself, and for a time it seemed that the project would not be realized. However, Dr. Ramakrishnan devised a compromise by which I could present these papers in a three-week term as visiting scientist. This was planned for January 1968.
