(20170712)In recent years, massive growth in internet usage has spurred the emergence of complex largescale networking systems to serve growing user bases, bandwidth and computation requirements. For example, data center facilities ...

(20161128)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 ...

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

(20170712)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 ...

(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 ...

(2009)We then present a distributed flowbased access scheme for slottedtime protocols that provides proportional fairness with respect to flowthroughput under constraints on the buffer overflow probabilities at each node. We ...

(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 ...

(20180913)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 deanonymization, and several efficient ...

(20150121)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 ...

(20150413)We investigate a number of multiarmed bandit problems that model different aspects of online advertising, beginning with a survey of the key techniques that are commonly used to demonstrate the theoretical limitations and ...

(20170425)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 ...

(20150121)Cloud computing is emerging as an important platform for business, personal and mobile computing applications. We consider a stochastic model of a cloud computing cluster, where jobs arrive according to a random process ...

(2008)This dissertation addresses certain key problems in the design of an efficient protocol stack for multihop wireless networks. We focus on the following issues: how to extend the network utility maximization (NUM) framework ...

(20150714)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 ...

(2002)Finally, we consider a wireless downlink scheduling problem. We study a scheduling rule, which we call the exponential rule, and prove that this rule is throughputoptimal, i.e., it makes the queues stable if there exists ...

(20160914)Scheduling and resource allocation in cloud systems is of fundamental importance to system efficiency. The focus of this thesis is to study the fundamental limits of the scheduling and resource allocation problems in clouds, ...

(2007)For distributed averaging, we design distributed algorithms that allow each node to compute the average of all numeric values (which could, for example, be measurements) initially recorded in the network when both communication ...

(2004)In the other case when B is large, it is not reasonable to assume any form of CSI. Thus, we consider noncoherent fading channels and characterize the reliability function in the lowSNR regime. Further, by allowing multiple ...
