About these proceedings


On May 10-12, 1973 a Conference on Mathematical Methods in Graph Theory was held at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. The theme of this Conference was recent advances in the application of analytic and algebraic methods to the analysis of queues and queueing networks. In addition some discussion was given to statistical analy­ ses in queues, control problems and graphical methods. A total of 83 individuals from both industry and academic estab­ lishments participated in the Conference. A list of these partici­ pants can be found on page 373. A total of 18 papers were presented, with sUbstantial time being devoted to their informal discussion. This volume constitutes the proceedings of the Conference, and includes all papers presented.
