Abstract : During the 1982/83 first year performance-period under this Grant, research investigations have been carried out leading to significant results, of both theoretical and practical importance. A large multitude of computer communication network architectures, models and control schemes have been developed, analyzed and evaluated. In particular, results have been obtained in the following areas: priority-based Time Division Multiple Access schemes; dynamic random-access procedures, with applications to local area networks and to local distribution and packet-radio networks; hybrid multiple-access schemes; polling, adaptive polling and probing access-control techniques; buffer capacity constrained multi-access systems; network topological analysis; local area network topological analysis; local area network protocols; integrated packet and circuit networks;integrated routing and flow control.
