Abstract : It is the purpose of this report to introduce the reader to a class of abstract models called switching net models. Such models are quite simple in conception but nonetheless offer considerable behavioral diversity and complexity. In this sense they become quite attractive models for examination. The former aspect allows them significant receptivity to mathematical analysis and to computer simulation which the latter enables their applicability in the general systems sense to a variety of problems. The authors describe the fundamentals of switching net behavior, offer several different representations of switching nets and describe three appealing applications of these models.
