math and computers and stuff

There is such a thing as queueing theory, but in CS there’s nothing special about a queue. Why hasn’t anyone invented “stacking theory” or better yet “treeing theory” or “graphing theory”. I suspect there are just as many processes (industrial or otherwise) where these apply.

Knuth may have something about this. I can’t imagine anywhere else, but I’m no expert.
