Exploring the nature of the strange network.
There are various nodes in the network, each node is active at particular times, the frequency and duration of its active time unpredictable (assume).
Nodes emits messages in response to other messages of query from other nodes in a network or send emit queries.
Inter node message exchange happens at varying points in time.
The message reaches other nodes at unpredictable rates.
Every query does not elicit a response from the network.
If there is a conditional branching waiting for input from the response to the broadcast query message.
How do we understand the nature of the branch decision ?
What influences does the responses or non response from another nodes in the network have on the branching?
Where should I start to know about these things??
