In this paper, the multi-server queue with general service time distribution and Lebesgue-dominated iid inter-arival times is analyzed. This is done by introducing auxiliary variables for the remaining service times and then examining the embedded Markov chain at arrival instants. The concept of piecewise-deterministic Markov processes is applied to model the inter-arrival behaviour. It turns out that the transition probability kernel of the embedded Markov chain at arrival instants has the form of a lower Hessenberg matrix and hence admits an operator-geometric stationary distribution. Thus it is shown that matrix-analytical methods can be extended to provide a modeling tool even for the general multi-server queue.
