It is known that the stable GI/PH/1 queue has an embedded Markov chain whose invariant probability vector is matrix-geometric with a rate matrix R. In terms of the matrix R, the stationary waiting-time distributions at arrivals, at an arbitrary time point and until the customer's departure may be evaluated by solving finite, highly structured systems of linear differential equations with constant coefficients. Asymptotic results, useful in truncating the computations, are also obtained. The queue discipline is first-come, first-served.
