 P: 77 How to mathematically proof that an arrival process is Markov ,memory-less ???
 Math Emeritus Sci Advisor Thanks PF Gold P: 38,886 That general, all you can say is "show that it satisfies the definition of "Markov Process". How you would do that, of course, depends upon exactly what the arrival process is.
 P: 77 The process is people arrival at the bus stop. I have time arrivals and now I need to proof that is indeed markovian process and maybe poisson
P: 34

## Math proof...

Surely one would assume a memoryless system to allow for the theory of queues and stochastic processes can be applied to your queueing system?

I am sure it is mathematically allowed to assume (wlog) that your system is Markovian.
