This paper points out the abstract similarities between problems arising in programming, discrete systems analysis in engineering, and network flow problems in operations research. The highly developed techniques of analyzing discrete systems of two terminal elements in electrical engineering become applicable to analyzing the complexity and execution time of computer programs.
