2 2 Goals: Preserve critical information structure and minimize latency over a heterogeneous distributed network and system Ensure network and system robustness and stability under a diverse set of resource constraints and manage not assuming static models Find invariant properties for a given network and system from a distributed set of observations and predict network behavior Develop unifying mathematical approach to discovering fundamental principles of networks and system and use them in network and system design Payoffs: Preserve information structures in a network rather than just delivering packets or bits Quantify likelihood of a given network management policy to support critical mission functions Predict and manage network and system failure comprehensively Complex Networks and Systems

3 3 Foundations of Information Systems - Model heterogeneous distributed systems using unified mathematical framework through previous measurement and validate - Verify the properties of a given system application through measurement of a limited set of system parameters and assess mission risk - Define general architectural principles of design through unified assessment of system operating properties - Generalize design properties to universal system architectural principles Program Objectives Payoff - Assess and verify properties of a distributed heterogeneous system where there is limited access to its elements - Assess dynamic Air Force system mission performance and assess risk of failure
