We continue our study of Jackson networks, but shift to focusing on their structural properties: those that describe the qualitative behavior of the network. We want to demonstrate that the Jackson network has the capability to capture the essential qualitative behavior of the system, to make it precise, and to bring out explicitly the role played by different resources and control parameters.
