In science:

In the language of queueing theory, A is the arrivals process, S is the service process, Q is the queue-length process, and D is the departure process.
Random matrices, non-colliding processes and queues
In particular, letting the final product φi (n, j ) be the service time of the j -th customer served during the n-th visit of the server to station i, we provide conditions under which the tail distribution of the length of the busy period decays, as y → ∞, like const × y−κ for some κ > 0.
Polling systems and multitype branching processes in random environment counted by random characteristics
We would like to study the distribution of the busy period of the server which performs J − 1 switches of zero length and then starts the service of the customer arrived to station J .
Polling systems and multitype branching processes in random environment counted by random characteristics
In particular, if the final product of any customer is its service time then the tail distribution of the length Φ of a busy period of the system satisfies (55).
Polling systems and multitype branching processes in random environment counted by random characteristics
In particular, if the final product of any customer is its service time then the tail distribution of the length ΘP of a busy period of the system satisfies (54).

For instance, it is possible to think of finite size capacity for the queues, queue length state dependent service rates and/or transition probabilities.

Discussion of "Estimating Random Effects via Adjustment for Density Maximization" by C. Morris and R. Tang
This proportionality property also holds for polling systems and in particular vacation queues with so-called branching type service disciplines, where the number of customers served in between two vacations (switch-over periods) is proportional to the queue length at the start of the service period.
Queues with random back-offs
Interestingly, the scaled queue length and delay for these types of service disciplines have been proven to converge to random variables with a gamma distribution in heavy-traffic conditions as well.
Queues with random back-offs
Another relevant observation that follows from the analysis is that the order of the number of customers in the system L in heavy traffic is independent of the mean length of the vacation and service times in all three modes.
Queues with random back-offs
Their work focuses on the simpler case of a single work-conserving resource (which corresponds to a full interference graph in the present setting) without any back-off mechanism, where the service rates of the various nodes are determined by a logarithmic function of their queue lengths.
