This paper describes work on the stochastic modelling of loss networks. Such systems have long been of interest to telephone engineers and are increasingly important as models of computer and information systems. Throughout the century problems from this field have provided an impetus to the development of probability theory, pure and applied. This paper provides an introduction to the area and a review of recent work.
