Abstract

Network flow control methods have been studied for years to ensure the efficient usage of network resources. By adopting a representation reminiscent of the slidingsurface representation, this work explores a highly adaptive network flow control strategy. The rate-based network flow control scheme is investigated through a novel model description in the matrix notation, and guaranteed to be stable under mildassumptions.
