|Title:||Dynamic Routing and Congestion Control Through Random Assignment of Routes|
|Published:||July 15, 2008|
|Abstract:||We introduce an algorithm for maximizing utility through congestion control and random allocation of routes to users. The allocation is defined by a probability distribution whose degree of randomness as measured by its entropy, is controlled. We seek to use the entropy to modulate between the two extremes of path specification; minimum cost path selection on one end and equiprobable path allocation on the other. We explore the trade-off between stability and utility in two sample topologies.|
