This paper is concerned with a discrete-timeGeo/G/1retrial queueing model withJvacations and two types of breakdowns. If the orbit is empty, the server takes at mostJvacations repeatedly until at least one customer appears in the orbit upon returning from a vacation. It is assumed that the server is subject to two types of different breakdowns and is sent immediately for repair. We analyze the Markov chain underlying the considered queueing system and derive the system state distribution as

Moreover, the stochastic decomposition property and the corresponding continuous-time queueing system are investigated. Finally, some numerical examples are provided to illustrate the effect of vacations and breakdowns on several performance measures of the system.
