title = "TCP-AQM interaction: Periodic optimization via linear programming",

abstract = "We investigate the interaction between Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and an Active Queue Management (AQM) router, that are designed to control congestion in the Internet.TCP controls the sending rate with which the data is injected into the network and AQM generates control signals based on the congestion level. For a given TCP version, we deﬁne the optimal strategy for the AQM router as a solution of a nonlinear periodic optimization problem, and we ﬁnd this solution using a linear programming approach.We show that depending on the choice of the utility function for the sending rate, the optimal control is either periodic or steady state.",
