rmftool - A library to Compute (Refined) Mean Field Approximation(s)


Mean field approximation is a powerful technique to study the performance of large stochastic systems represented as systems of interacting objects. Applications include load balancing models, epidemic spreading, cache replacement policies, or large-scale data centers, for which mean field approximation gives very accurate estimates of the transient or steady-state behaviors. In a series of recent papers [9, 7], a new and more accurate approximation, called the refined mean field approximation is presented. Yet, computing this new approximation can be cumbersome. The purpose of this paper is to present a tool, called rmf tool, that takes the description of a mean field model, and can numerically compute its mean field approximations and refinement.
