Abstract

The Internet is one of the most complex machines ever created. It has been growing exponentially for over two decades, and has long gone beyond the point where its topology can be mapped out by any one individual. Yet the mechanism for co-ordinating flows and avoiding congestion across this network is relatively simple and has remained unchanged for a long time. In this talk, we examine some of the mathematical modelling techniques which have been used to study both existing and possible future Internet flow control mechanisms. In particular we examine why the Internet works so well, what ideas have been introduced to improve it, and, in general, how the techniques developed in this field might impact on other problems in multi-agent system design.
