Abstract : During the 1982-1984 performance-period under this AFOSR Grant, we have carried out research investigations and obtained many 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 TDMA schemes; dynamic random-access procedures, with applications to local area networks, metropolitan-area networks and packet-radio networks; hybrid multiple-access schemes; polling, adaptive polling and probing access-control techniques; buffer capacity constrained multi-access systems; network topological anlaysis; poling networks under unbalanced traffic conditions; performance of token-ring and token-bus local area networks; terminal-priority based contentionless access-control algorithms; queueing and telecommunication systems subject to traffic activity mode changes; local area network architectures and protocols for the integration of data/voice/video; integrated packet and circuit switched networks; integrated routing and flow control algorithms in computer networks.
