Mean-field limit for a class of
density-dependent stochastic processes

The mean-field (a.k.a. fluid limit) approach for density-dependent

parallel continuous-time Markov chains is extended to a larger class

of processes where generally-timed transitions are also allowed. The

system is no longer memoryless, and the mean-field
limit is the

solution of a system of coupled delayed differential equations (DDE).

The presentation focuses on the practical aspects of the topic.

Real-life examples include peer-to-peer software update process.
