SUMMARY. A simple series form is obtained for the transient state probabilities of a single server Markovian queue with finite waiting space whence all particular cases concerning infinite waiting space and steady-state situations can be derived straight away. Also the coefficients in the series satisfy iterative recurrence relations which enable fast and accurate numerical computations.
