Emergence of critical rates in CSMA/CD type network control schemes
Author(s): Ernest Barany

Subject(s): CX.01, CX.14, CX.18

Category: Brief Article


The critical output bandwidth needed to ensure that a CSMA/CD based LAN does not accumulate packets unboundedly in its queues is computed. This is an emergent property of the network that arises from decentralized microscopic laws. The results follows from the stationary distribution property of ergodic homogeneous Markov chains.
