The objective of this thesis is to understand the interactions between the computational mechanisms, described by algorithms and software, and the physical world, described by differential equations, in the context of networked systems. Such systems can be denoted as cyber-physical nodes connected over a network. In this work, the power grid is used as a guiding example and a rich source of problems which can be generalized to networked cyber-physical systems. We address specific problems that arise in cyber-physical networks due to the presence of a computational network and a physical network as well as provide directions for future research.
