multiple uncertain delays; statistical learning theory
Congestion control in the ABR class of ATM network presents interesting challenges due to the presence of multiple uncertain delays. Recently, probabilistic methods and statistical learning theory have been shown to provide approximate solutions to challenging control problems. In this paper, using some recent results by the authors, an efficient statistical algorithm is used to design a robust, fixed-structure, controller for a high-speed communication network with multiple uncertain propagation delays.
