This paper is concerned with the analysis of queuing systems when there are two distinct populations. Its pragmatic nature is both intentional and far-reaching. Two significant contributions concern configurations with arrival dependent service rates, one of which examines lane switching objectives. Linear algebra and calculus are the primary disciplines used to generate various performance metrics.
