About one dynamic model of conflictcontrol user interaction in open information environments

O.P. Ignatenko


The work deals with game control models of data flows in networks that use TCP congestion control algorithms. This paper presents an overview of the problems, highlighted its relevance, and described current approaches to its solution. For networks with varying data flows and the presence of conflicting users, a new approach to the analysis based on conflict-control fluid models is proposed. We build controlled model for constant window and demonstrate the existence of optimal solution of the download file problem. A game of two users that transmit data over a shared communication channel is considered and found the conditions of data losses.
