Network Analysis:  A process that determines the optimal path between two points with any number of stops and route control parameters taken into consideration (route mode).  You can also locate centers (points) and identify the linear components of the network that should feed that center or that the center should service (allocate mode).  Both modes use the characteristics of the lines and nodes in the network.
