Abstract

Arguably, understanding the behaviour of TCP is essential to understanding the behaviour of the whole Internet hence (1) the majority of traffic flows use it for their transportation, (2) it has been around since the inception of the global net thus showing remarkable scalability and robustness, (3) it has been a subject of many modifications in order to absorb technological innovations, and (4) through its self-clocking disposition has displayed flexibility and fairness. The heuristic nature of the TCP extensions and the inherit complexity of the Internet have provided the justification behind using testbeds and simulations in order to describe and study the nature of TCP and the effect of the protocol on the Net. However, having in mind that rudimentary TCP protocol is actually FSM, as well as acknowledging the need for analytical modelling that will supplement the empirical work and thus induce the necessary predictability, has lately induced an intensive research for mathematical paradigms applicable and usable in TCP studies. The article enumerates some of these efforts and compares their effectiveness.
