Utility Maximization for Communication Networks with Multi-path Routing



Abstract — In this paper, we study utility maximization problems for communication networks where each user (or class) can have multiple alternative paths through the network. This type of multi-path utility maximization problems appear naturally in several resource allocation problems in communication networks, such as the multi-path flow control problem, the optimal QoS routing problem, and the optimal network pricing problem. We develop a distributed solution to this problem that is amenable to online implementation. We analyze the convergence of our algorithm in both continuous-time and discrete-time, and with and without measurement noise. These analyses provide us with guidelines on how to choose the parameters of the algorithm to ensure efficient network control. I
