Abstract:Some of our work is control-theoretic in nature and studies the effects of delays in obtaining information about the available resources. Some work is game-theoretic and studies the economic impact of choice in terms of revenue to the service providers and payoffs to the users. Other work uses optimization ideas to design multicast trees that would be both simple and efficient, while we use ideas of graph evolution to understand how a particular way of making choices influences the structure of the Internet graph. Still other work uses epidemic modeling to study the role of peer-to-peer networks for worm defense, in which users provide diversity by contributing resources to each other.
