Abstract : The report considers an infinite storage system in discrete time fed by inputs X sub t = 0, 1, ... ,r in the intervals (t, t+1) such that these form a positively regular Markov chain with a finite number of states. The release at the end of each interval is 1 or 0 depending on whether the dam content is positive or zero. Probabilities of first emptiness and of emptiness are found, and from these the probabilities of the dam content at time t can be evaluated. The report concludes with some stationary results.
