The problems described here are concerned with a stochastic model of a communication network. The model represents the interactions between the random demands placed on a network, and the aim is to understand its stationary behavior. In particular, we are interested in any clues that the network may exhibit instabilities, with perhaps various distinct modes of behavior possible.
