A new methodology to assess transient performance measures of tree-like processes is proposed by introducing the concept of tree-like processes with marked time epochs. As opposed to the standard tree-like process, such a process marks part of the time epochs by following a set of Markovian rules. Our interest lies in obtaining the system state at the n-th marked time epoch as well as the mean time at which this n-th marking occurs. The methodology transforms the transient problem into adoi:10.1145/1140103.1140299 fatcat:xpvqf5m4xveybgyqtaewdql6wu
