The Seventies are here and so are computer networks! The time sharing industry dominated the Sixties and it appears that computer networks will play a similar role in the Seventies. The need has now arisen for many of these time-shared systems to share each others' resources by coupling them together over a communication network thereby creating a computer network. The mini-computer will serve an important role here as the sophisticated terminal as well as, perhaps, the message switching… 
Computer network development to achieve resource sharing
TLDR
An overview of the need for a computer network, the requirements of a computer communication system, a description of the properties of the communication system chosen, and the potential uses of such a network are described.
Topological optimization of computer networks
TLDR
A number of approaches to the topological design problem are presented; areas where further research is needed are indicated; possible approaches to several unsolved problems are suggested.
Topological considerations in the design of the ARPA computer network
The ARPA Network will provide store-and-forward communication paths between a set of computer centers distributed across the continental United States. The message handling tasks at each node in the
On the Optimization of Message-Switching Networks
TLDR
Criteria recently developed for optimum capacity assignment in message-switching networks are applied to a network model which now contains nodal processors as well as interconnecting links, and various performance and cost-performance curves are presented.
Computer communication network design: experience with theory and practice
The ARPA Network (ARPANET) project brought together many individuals with diverse backgrounds, philosophies, and technical approaches from the fields of computer science, communication theory,
Estimating computer communication network performance using network simulations
TLDR
A generalized queueing model simulation of store-and-forward computer communication networks is developed and implemented using Simulation Language for Alternative Modeling (SLAM) and validated by comparison with published analytic models.
The terminal IMP for the ARPA computer network
TLDR
A little over three years ago the Advanced Research Projects Agency began implementation of an entirely new venture in computer communications: a network that would allow for the interconnection, via common-carrier circuits, of dissimilar computers at widely separated, ARPA-sponsored research centers.
A Design Pro.:edure for Hybrid Ciftuit-Pa.:ket Networks
A hybrid network is defined as a certain type of integrated-traffic network in which transmission links are digital and are partitioned into a packet channel and some number of circuit switched
Computer Communication Networks: Approaches, Objectives, and Performance Considerations
TLDR
A hypothesis is advanced that the "packet-switched" networks provide the most appropriate technology for supporting multimodal traffic between hosts and when several hosts and the communications subnetwork are under the control of a single administrative organization.
Theoretical aspects in the analysis and synthesis of packet communication networks
TLDR
The models and the basic relations underlying the analysis as well as the method for evaluating packet delay and topological design methods are introduced together with the theoretical aspects on packet radio, satellite, and radio systems.

Multiple computer networks and intercomputer communication
TLDR
Three other more important reasons for computer networks exist, at least with respect to scientific computer applications, are defined.
The interface message processor for the ARPA computer network
TLDR
The ARPA Network will initially interconnect many dissimilar computers at ten ARPA-supported research centers with 50-kilobit common-carrier circuits, but the network may be extended to include many other locations and circuits of higher bandwidth.
HOST-HOST communication protocol in the ARPA network
TLDR
The Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) Computer Network (hereafter referred to as the "ARPA network") is one of the most ambitious computer networks attempted to date, but no one node is in control of the network.
Optimum speed of service in the design of customer data communications systems
A model is given for selection of optimum bit speed for private line data communications applications based on the tradeoff between the cost of delay and the cost of equipment. Costs of delay are
Comments on "Generalized Cost Expression for Private-Line Communications Channels"
Because of recent changes in tarifs, many of the costs given in the much needed and informative subject correspondence by G.A. Barnard named above (ibid., vol. COM-12, pp. 228-230, December 1964) are
