Abstract : The study of networks of queues poses some interesting theoretical and practical problems. In the paper the author discusses one method used to study queueing networks. The method attempts to decompose the network into smaller parts (decomposition), analyze these small parts and then put the parts back together (recomposition). In doing so some of the historically important problems of queueing theory are encountered. The paper exhibits the results which have been obtained to date on the major topics. Emphasis is placed on the properties of the random processes representing the flow in the network. (Author)
