Abstract:

The document describes research efforts to determine 1 the most economical configurations to meet growth requirements in the ARPANET, 2 properties of packet switched computer communication networks, 3 analysis and design techniques for large scale networks, 4 costthroughputreliability characteristics of large packet switched networks for potential application to Defense Department computer communication requirements. The heart of the research program has been the dual attack on basic network theoretical problems and the development of computational techniques for handling large network structures. Results on properties of the ARPANET, properties of large networks, and new computational techniques are described for subjects as traffic sensitivity, peak bandwidth, reliability, cost and throughput and routing.
