Research on stochastic networks has powerful driving applications in the modelling of manufacturing, telecommunications, and computer systems. These various applications raise common mathematical issues of some subtlety, explored in the forthcoming IMA Volume 71 on Stochastic Networks. The volume edited by Frank Kelly and Ruth Williams contains articles by experts in operations research, systems science and engineering, and applied mathematics.

You may browse the preface and table of contents for this proceedings of the IMA workshop on Stochastic Networks held at the Institute for Mathematics and Its Applications in March 1994. The volume was published in the summer of 1995 and is now available from Springer-Verlag (1-800-SPRINGER).
