The purpose of this expository paper is to describe a number of representative problems in the field of scheduling which will furnish some idea of the types of mathematical questions which confront us in this domain. In doing so we shall touch upon some of the analytic and computational techniques which have been utilized to date to treat these problems, and thus unavoidably display the deplorable state of the art.
