Improved AIMD- A Mathematical Study

V. S.P. Srivastav, M. K. Gupta, Sachin Kumar and Kadambri Agarwal


One of the crucial elements in the Internet is the ability to adequately control Congestion. AIMD (Additive Increase Multiplicative Decrease) is the best algorithm among the set of liner algorithms because it reflects good efficiency as well as good fairness. Our Control model is based on original approach of AIMD. In this paper we introduce improved version of AIMD. We call our approach improved AIMD. We are also including various inherent properties of Congestion Control i.e. Fairness, Responsiveness, Smoothness and efficiency.
