Abstract : This report summarizes a survey of published research in real time systems. Material is presented that provides an overview of the topic, focusing on communications protocols and scheduling techniques. It is noted that real-time systems deserve special attention separate from other areas because of the unique properties. This has not been the case in computer science and operations research until quite recently, resulting in the absence of formal tools for design and analysis of real-time systems. The early work on applications as well as notable theoretical advances are summarized. Descriptions of more recent work in the field from the mid-1980s to the present are also provided.
