  • Cullina, Daniel Francis (2016-11-28)
    A central task of coding theory is the design of schemes to reliably transmit data though space, via communication systems, or through time, via storage systems. Our goal is to identify and exploit structural properties ...

  • Liu, Shao (2007)
    The low priority TCP variant is called Competitive and Considerate Congestion Control (4CP). 4CP enables provisioning of per-flow average bandwidth guarantees and thus some quality of service to "normal" traffic (TCP flows), ...

  • Su, Lili (2017-07-12)
    A distributed system consists of networked components that interact with each other in order to achieve a common goal. Given the ubiquity of distributed systems and their vulnerability to adversarial attacks, it is crucial ...

  • Deb, Supratim (2003)
    We then study the impact of parameter choice of an AQM (active queue management) scheme that can be used at the router. We argue that, depending upon the choice of the parameters of the AQM scheme, one would obtain a ...

  • Singh, Nikhil (2009)
    We then present a distributed flow-based access scheme for slotted-time protocols that provides proportional fairness with respect to flow-throughput under constraints on the buffer overflow probabilities at each node. We ...

  • Kunniyur, Srisankar Swaminathan (2001)
    Finally, we present a simple Active Queue Management scheme that we call the Adaptive Virtual Queue (AVQ) algorithm and provide design rules for selecting its parameters. We also provide a simple implementation of the AVQ ...

  • Lubars, Joseph (2018-09-13)
    In approximate graph matching, the goal is to find the best correspondence between the labels of two correlated graphs. Recently, the problem has been applied to social network de-anonymization, and several efficient ...

  • Wu, Rui (2015-01-21)
    Understanding the network structure connecting a group of entities is of interest in applications such as predicting stock prices and making recommendations to customers. The network structure is usually not directly ...

  • Burle, Sai Kiran (2017-04-25)
    We consider an input queued switch operating under the MaxWeight scheduling algorithm. This system is interesting to study because it is a model for Internet routers and data center networks. Recently, it was shown that ...

  • Dong, Xiaobo (2015-07-14)
    A system with N parallel servers is considered in our thesis. Each server consists of B units of a resource and jobs arrive at this system according to a Poisson process. Each job stays in the system for an ...

  • Shakkottai, Sanjay Govindaraju (2002)
    Finally, we consider a wireless down-link scheduling problem. We study a scheduling rule, which we call the exponential rule, and prove that this rule is throughput-optimal, i.e., it makes the queues stable if there exists ...
