The convolution algorithm, the mean value analysis (MVA) algorithm, and the LBANC algorithm are major algorithms for the solution of closed product-form queueing networks. For fixed-rate service centers, the efficiency of each algorithm is greatly improved by a recursive solution. We show that the recursive relations in all three algorithms are closely related so that each one can be easily derived from any of the others.
