Internet Congestion Control provides a description of some of the most important topics in the area of congestion control in computer networks, with special emphasis on the analytical modeling of congestion control algorithms. The field of congestion control has seen many notable advances in recent years and the purpose of this book, which is targeted towards the advanced and intermediate reader, is to inform about the most important developments in this area. The book should enable the reader to gain a good understanding of the application of congestion control theory to a number of application domains such as Data Center Networks, Video Streaming, High Speed Links and Broadband Wireless Networks. When seen through the lens of analytical modeling, there are a number of common threads that run through the design and analysis of congestion control protocols in all these different areas, which are emphasized in this book. The book also cuts a path through the profusion of algorithms in the literature, and puts the topic on a systematic and logical footing. Internet Congestion Control provides practicing network engineers and researchers with a comprehensive and accessible coverage of analytical models of congestion control algorithms, and gives readers everything needed to understand the latest developments and research in this area.

"...algorithms are presented in detail and insights on their operation are discussed in a clear manner, making the book very useful to people that are interested in the algorithmic aspects and are willing to skip the technical analysis. As such, the book is useful to advances undergraduate and graduate students, as well as to practicing engineers and scientists, and to researchers." - Leonidas Georgiadis, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki "I think this book distinguishes itself very well in the way it first approaches and then dives into the topic of congestion control.... There is a whole range of algorithms and traffic domains and trying to make sense of so many areas in a coherent manner is a daunting task. The book approaches this challenge in a top down fashion which works out very well in the end....All the content is there that is needed to make anyone interested a reasonable expert in the area." -Ashish Gupta, Senior Software Engineer, Google Inc.
