In this paper, we present a study of the dynamics of disjunctive networks under all block-sequential update schedules. We also present an extension of this study to more general fair periodic update schedules, that is, periodic update schedules that do not update some elements much more often than some others. Our main aim is to classify disjunctive networks according to the robustness of their dynamics with respect to changes of their update schedules. To study this robustness, we focus on one property, that of being able to cycle dynamically.
