In this paper, an algorithm for the min-cost synthesis of a communication network, which is able to handle flows of all time periods, is given. The algorithm used is the dual simplex me t hod. The first part of the paper is devoted to the explanation of a general network and the methods of finding maximal flows. Then I restrict the discussion to a communication network; in particular, a time dependent communication network. Although the example in Chanter V of this paper is restricted to two distinct time periods, the theory preceding it allows us to discuss a communication network with infinitely many time periods. The only thing to he kept in mind is that each new time period involves much calculation in order to set up the proper constraint equations for it, so an example with more than two time periods would prove to be quite impractical if solved manually.
