    This article comments upon some new developments in the field of Queuing Theory and Markov Processes. Matrix--analytic methods are used to solve particular kinds of a Markov Processes. The level dependent quasi--birth-- death process (LDQBD) is an example of a matrix-analytic model, and in this article we give the background on how queues are modelled with Markov Processes which leads to some new mathematics to overcome problems in modelling particular situations. We conclude by outlining new methods used to numerically calculate results for a LDQBD process.
