<p>A necessary and sufficient ergodicity condition for complex open queueing systems is given. The queueing networks considered belong to a particular class of unbounded Markov stochastic Petri nets. These systems can include synchronization features like fork and join arrivals and departures, and feedback between behavior of different queues. Grouped and correlated arrivals and departures are also allowed. An example and a proof of the ergodicity results are presented.</p>
