Distributed management of competitive access to common resources using algorithmic game theory

Abstract

The Internet is today an inextricable part of daily personal, educational and business activity, turning any problems in its operation or availability into a significant interruption of these activities and their users. The resources offered by the Internet (capacity, coverage) are continuously increasing but at the same time the users and their demands are increasing at an even larger pace. If measures for the efficient and fair management of the network resources are not taken, the Internet will cease to be able to support new users and applications with high quality. Internet users operate in an independent manner, by creating data flows (sending and receiving network packets) which satisfy their demands. Each user prefers for his needs to be served in the best possible way but the resources of the network are shared and finite, making it often impossible to provide the best service to everyone. This leads to users competing amongst themselves for access to the network resources and ...
