This IMA quantity in arithmetic and its functions DISCRETE occasion structures, production platforms AND communique NETWORKS relies at the lawsuits of a workshop that was once a vital part of the 1992-93 IMA software on "Control concept. " The examine of discrete occasion dynamical platforms (DEDS) has develop into speedily renowned between researchers in platforms and keep an eye on, in verbal exchange networks, in production, and in allotted computing. This improvement has created difficulties for re­ searchers and power "consumers" of the learn. the 1st challenge is the veritable Babel of languages, formalisms, and techniques, which makes it very tricky to figure out the commonalities and differences one of the competing faculties of techniques. the second one, comparable, challenge arises from the various traditions, paradigms, values, and adventure that students deliver to their research of DEDS, looking on whether or not they come from keep watch over, com­ munication, laptop technological know-how, or mathematical common sense. therefore, highbrow trade between students turns into compromised by means of unexplicated assumptions. the aim of the Workshop used to be to advertise alternate between students representing a number of the significant "schools" of concept in DEDS with the desire that (1) larger readability can be accomplished thereby, and (2) cross-fertilization will result in extra fruitful questions. We thank P. R. Kumar and P. P. Varaiya for organizing the workshop and enhancing the court cases. We additionally take this chance to thank the nationwide technology starting place and the military examine workplace, whose monetary aid made the workshop attainable.
