Congestion control of TCP flows in Internet routers by means of index policy
In this paper we address the problem of fast and fair transmission of flows in a router, which is a fundamental issue in networks like the Internet. We model the interaction between a source using the Transmission Control ...
Optimal congestion control of TCP flows for internet routers
In this work we address the problem of fast and fair transmission of flows in a router, which is a fundamental issue in networks like the Internet. We model the interaction between a TCP source and a bottleneck queue with ...
A nearly-optimal index rule for scheduling of users with abandonment
We analyze a comprehensive model for multi-class job scheduling accounting for user abandonment, with the objective of minimizing the total discounted or time-average sum of linear holding costs and abandonment penalties. ...
Resource-sharing in a single server with time-varying capacity
We investigate the problem of sharing the resources of a single server with time-varying capacity with the objective of minimizing the mean delay. We formulate the resource allocation problem as a Markov Decision Process. ...
A modeling framework for optimizing the flow-level scheduling with time-varying channels
We introduce a comprehensive modeling framework for the problem of scheduling a finite number of finite-length jobs where the available service rate is time-varying. The main motivation comes from wireless data networks ...
