Abstract
In this paper we have found an analytical formula for a copula that connects the numbers Ni of customers in the nodes of a Gordon and Newell queueing network. We have considered two cases: the first one is the case of the network with 2 nodes, and the second one is the case of the network with at least 3 nodes. The analytical formula for the second case has been found for the most general case (none of the constants from a list is equal to a given value), and the other particular cases have been obtained by limit.
