Abstract:

The report studies reliability properties of store-and-forward networks, analysis of network reliability and algorithms for minimum spanning trees. A study of the tradeoffs between network size, connectivity, and component reliability shows that large networks reliability will be a major, and perhaps dominant, design problem. Recursive analysis techniques for loop and tree combinations greatly reduce analysis cost, while improved methods for generating minimum spanning trees have a similar effect for this fundamental network problem.
