The objective of this research is how to achieve in engineering practice the potential advantages of reliability that a large scale data communication network should make possible. From a technical viewpoint, the principal areas of investigation reported here are computer resource sharing, adaptive network routing, and the efficient representation of network protocol information. The approach has been theoretical, with an attempt made to take a fundamental new look independent of current engineering practice at areas where theoretical understanding is limited, but important and possible to attain. The primary analytical tools have been information, control, and queueing theory.
