Abstract : This paper describes a computer program, NetStat, that is designed to analyze the connectivity of probabalistic networks. The program, which offers a full graphic user interface (GUI), allows the user to visually layout a network topology and specify the destruction probability, Pd, for each network element. A Monte-Carlo simulation is utilized to obtain estimates of various connectivity metrics. Some details of the implementation are discussed and an example application is illustrated. A user manual is provided. Source code is also provided, written in Symantec's Think Pascal for the Macintosh personal computer.
