Research published during this reporting period covers a broad spectrum of results in the areas of random access communications, computer networks, and distributed processing a new and rapidly growing area of research and practical importance. In this latter area, the major works involved the behavior of distributed algorithms for election and traversal in networks, and the evaluation of the achievable and achieved parallelism in parallel processing systems. A general model of distributed processing exposed a potential areas of networks and multiaccess, our results focus on improved and innovative models. A major contribution of our research during this reporting period is a dissertation entitled Distributed Algorithms for Election in Unidirectional and Complete Networks, by Yehuda Afek. This entire dissertation forms the body of this report.
