Abstract

We investigate the trade-off between utility and path diversity in a model of congestion control where there can be multiple routes between two locations in a network The model contains a random route allocation scheme for each source s (user or TCP session) where the degree of randomness and therefore path diversity is controlled by hs, the entropy of the route distribution.
