Internet Congestion Controlprovides a description of some of the most important topics in the area of congestion control in computer networks, with special emphasis on the analytical modeling of congestion control algorithms.

The field of congestion control has seen many notable advances in recent years and the purpose of this book, which is targeted towards the advanced and intermediate reader, is to inform about the most important developments in this area. The book should enable the reader to gain a good understanding of the application of congestion control theory to a number of application domains such as Data Center Networks, Video Streaming, High Speed Links and Broadband Wireless Networks. When seen through the lens of analytical modeling, there are a number of common threads that run through the design and analysis of congestion control protocols in all these different areas, which are emphasized in this book. The book also cuts a path through the profusion of algorithms in the literature, and puts the topic on a systematic and logical footing.

Internet Congestion Controlprovides practicing network engineers and researchers with a comprehensive and accessible coverage of analytical models of congestion control algorithms, and gives readers everything needed to understand the latest developments and research in this area.

  • Examines and synthesizes the most important developments in internet congestion control from the last 20 years.
  • Provides detailed description on the congestion control protocols used in four key areas; broadband wireless networks, high speed networks with large latencies, video transmission networks, and data center networks.
  • Offers accessible coverage of advanced topics such as Optimization and Control Theory as applied to congestion control systems.

Editorial Reviews

".algorithms are presented in detail and insights on their operation are discussed in a clear manner, making the book very useful to people that are interested in the algorithmic aspects and are willing to skip the technical analysis. As such, the book is useful to advances undergraduate and graduate students, as well as to practicing engineers and scientists, and to researchers."  - Leonidas Georgiadis, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
