Stochastic networks is a relatively young field that often seems more like disjointed examples than like a unified theory. However, one topic that comes through often is the relationship between a microscopic distributed description and a global optimization problem. I will illustrate this by talking about some or all of road traffic, the button model of electric circuits, and current research into internet protocols.
