This week sees us complete the control theory section of the course, and cover the optimisation model of end-to-end congestion control + traffic engineering/routing as a joint optimal solution...on friday 10th nov.
Will contrast the optimization model of TCP with a very large scale practical measurement based study of real world traces of TCP, on monday 13th....
This week, we looked at errors (coding for TCP)
flow control (open loop, token bucket etc, forward reference to schedulers)
closed loop (TCP equation, explicit v. implicit feedback), and will just start on
i'd just like to say that graph theory, compact routing, BGP, multicast, and the Erlang equation for call blocking probability have absolutely no bearing on whether brexit is a bad or good idea. The latter is entirely obvious, whereas the stuff I teach in this course is (hopefully) subtle, complex, and useful.
