    Mean waiting time due to aggregation of k poisson arrivals

    Dear Experts: I want to calculate the mean waiting time due to aggregation of k arrivals following poisson process with rate #λ#. Arrivals are served in chunk i.e., if N arrivals reach buffer, OR deterministic timer T expires. The timer ALWAYS starts at the first arrival. So, first arrival reach...
