Laboratory was created in Belarusian State University in 1971 as industry research
laboratory of communication systems with program control. It was joint laboratory of Ministry of
of Belarus and Ministry of Telecommunication Equipment of USSR.
The main subject of research implemented for the main customer - "Red Sunset"
corporation, Leningrad (currently Saint-Petersburg) - was investigation of perspective
communication systems including Integral Service Digital Networks (ISDN). Research in the field
of narrow- and wideband networks with tree-like and cellular topology was
conducted for for Institute of Communication Systems and Control, Moscow. Several projects
were devoted to investigation of special communication networks for different customers in
In 1981, the laboratory was associated with Department of Probability Theory and Mathematical
Statistics, Faculty of Applied Mathematics and the chair of this Department Professor
G. A. Medvedev became the head of laboratory. Since 1983, A. N. Dudin is the head of the laboratory.
Number of laboratory members was about 30 in 1980th.
At the end of 1980th, as the consequence of the approaching crash of the Soviet Union and collapse
of economic and scientific system and cooperation, laboratory
lost status of the industry research laboratory. Since September, 1991 it operates as the Scientific
Research Laboratory of Applied Probabilistic Analysis of Belarusian State University.
In 2003-2004 laboratory had also temporary status of Overseas Laboratory of Korean Science and
Foundation (KOSEF). In 2005-2006 laboratory had also temporary status of Overseas Laboratory of
Korean Researsh Foundation (KRF).
Since 1983, the mainstream of research implemented in the laboratory is development of methods of
theory and their application to investigation of telecommunication systems.
Besides applications in "Red Sunset" corporation, Institute of Communication Systems and Control,
some other Russian customers, applications in "Kvant" corporation, Minsk (performance evaluation
and capacity planning of transport station for 10 Mb Local Area Network), "Mebius" corporation,
(design of the network for payment via plastic cards), BEZ-Systems, Inc, Chicago (solving the
problems of locking and indexing in relational data bases) can be mentioned.
Since the middle of 1990th, the number of members of laboratory redeuced essentially because
the former customers located in Russia stopped funding of the laboratory and providing problems
related to perspective communication networks, not to share technological secrets with foreign
country (Belarus is now independent country).
Since that time the work of laboratory became
more theoretical.Funding of laboratory became ad hoc depending on winning research grants of
Minsitry of Education and Informatization Foundation of Belarus.
Since 1996, members of laboratory
started submission of results of research to Journals published outside of the former Soviet Union.
In 1997-2000, laboratory took part as the team in the INTAS project "Advances in Retrial Queueing
Theory" implemented by 7 teams from 6 countries under leadership by J.Artalejo (Complutense
University of Madrid). In 2000-2003, laboratory took part in the project
“Stochastic Analysis of Wireless Telecommunication Networks” (joint with Trier University,
Germany and Institute of Cybernetics, Ukraine) funded by Ministry of Science of Germany.
In 2005-2006,laboratory took part in the project related to information search in Internet
(joint with INRIA, Sophia-Antipolis and Saint-Petersburg University, Russia) funded by
Ministry of Science of France in borders of Eco-Net programme. In 2005-2007 INTAS project
of post-doctoral research by Olga Semenova (scientific supervisors A. Dudin and L. Breuer,
University of Kent, UK) was implemented. In 2003-2007 several research projects funded by
of Korean Science and Engineering Foundation (KOSEF), Korean Researsh Foundation (KRF), Ministry
of Information and Communication of Republic of Korea were conducted.
In laboratory, three doctoral dissertations were prepared (Dudin A.N., 1992; Khomichkov I.I., 1997;
Klimenok V.I., 2002). PhD dissertations were prepared by the following researchers:
