This report describes three alternative sets of rules, or procedures, capable of regulating the flow of message words in a feedback communication system - the circulating memory procedure, the interlace procedure, and the go back procedure. The first two of these have been mentioned briefly in previous reports and the third has been described elsewhere. The procedures are evaluated and compared with respect to complexity and storage requirements, operational logic, and compatibility with cumulative decision techniques. A preliminary study of their effect on transmission time and hence on system efficiency is also presented. Author
