Abstract:

The development of resource sharing networks can facilitate the provision of a wide range of economic and reliable computer services. Computer Communication Networks allow the sharing of specialized computer resources such as data bases, programs and hardware. Such a network consists of both the computer resources and a communications system interconnecting them and allowing their full utilization to be achieved. In addition, a resource sharing network provides the means whereby increased cooperation and interaction can be achieved between individuals. This paper provides an introduction to computer networks and resource sharing and discusses some aspects of distributed computation.
