Network Analysis

These articles document the theory and implementation of algorithms useful for the analysis of large scale networked systems and the solution of linear systems. You probably have to be an engineer with training in numerical analysis to derive much benefit from these papers. They were originally compiled to document the implementation of software used for the analysis of electric power systems — one of the earliest applications of these techniques.

The monographs are somewhat dated (they were originally written circa 1990)—but since the underlying problems are physical and longstanding—we suspect they are still quite useful for pedantic purposes, if nothing else. We have not followed recent developments in this field, but are pretty sure that some of the algorithms could be adjusted to exploit modern heavily pipelined, multiprocessor computing platforms.
