Abstract
This paper is primarily concerned with the stochastic behavior of deficits in discrete time resource allocation problems when demands for resources are random and when future allocations are based on past demands. The effects of various allocation policies are analyzed, and the sequence of deficits is shown to be related to waiting times and queue sizes in queuing systems. A number of applications are described, and a budgeting problem is used to illustrate the results
