The ARPA Network (ARPANET) project brought together many individuals with diverse backgrounds, philosophies, and technical approaches from the fields of computer science, communication theory, operations research and others. The project was aimed at providing an efficient and reliable computer communications system (using message switching techniques) in which computer resources such as programs, data, storage, special purpose hardware etc., could be shared among computers and among many users… 
Improvements in the design and performance of the ARPA network
In late 1968 the Advanced Research Projects Agency of the Department of Defense (ARPA) embarked on the implementation of a new type of computer network which would interconnect, via common-carrier
COMPUTER NETWORK RESEARCH
TLDR
This is the final report for the ARPA Contract number DAHC 15-73-C- 0368 at UCLA covering the period from Jun3 15, 1973 to November 30, 1975, with a short statement of accomplishments followed by a complete bibliography of published works which were supported under this research contract.
Research areas in computer communication
TLDR
Perhaps the most sophisticated form of Computer Communications may be found in data communication networks, and a fair amount of sophistication is usually required in the allocation of resources in order to realize the large savings from resource sharing.
A high-level language for use with multi-computer networks

    AFIPS National Computer Conference
  • 1973
Two basic trends can be observed in the modern evolution of computer systems. They are the development of computer systems dedicated to a single task or user (minicomputers) where the sophistication
An extensive bibliography on computer networks
TLDR
The compilation of this bibliography attempts to collect various research papers that are published in the area of Data Communication and Computer Networks.
The ARPANET and the DARPA internet
TLDR
The ARPANET, initiated in 1969 by the Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) of the Department of Defense, was the first wide area packet switching network; it has grown to be very large; it now consists of over 330 networks, hundreds of gateways, and tens of thousands of hosts.
Reflections on VM/Pass-Trough: A Facility for Interactive Networking
TLDR
An introduction to Pass-Through networking is described, which is used to motivate a technical discussion of interactive network technology and virtual machine subsystems, which includes appropriate use of the virtual machine environment, choice of routing strategy, and performance considerations.
Resource-sharing computer communications networks
TLDR
An introduction to computer-to-computer networks and resource sharing is provided and some aspects of distributed computation are discussed.
Optimal Design of Distributed Information Systems
TLDR
An algorithm, based on the "bounded branch and bound" integer programming technique, has been developed to obtain the optimal solution of the model, and it is found to be more efficient than several existing general nonlinear integer programming algorithms.
The design of a topology information maintenance scheme for a distributed computer network
TLDR
A straightforward scheme involving adjacency matrices and a broadcast scheme are discussed and their inadequacies described and the NETCHANGE Protocol, based on Baran's “Hot Potato Heuristic Routing Doctrine,” is presented.
