Synthesis Lectures on Communication Networks

The congestion control mechanism has been responsible
for maintaining stability as the Internet scaled up by
many orders of magnitude in size, speed, traffic volume,
coverage, and complexity over the last three decades.
In this book, the authors develop a coherent theory of
congestion control from the ground up to help understand
and design these algorithms.

and material elimination. While focused on mechanical
properties for structural design, the physical properties
that are germane to corrosion behaviour and electrical
applications are represented. Datasheets for individual
magnesium alloys provide a handy quick reference to
specific properties and performance. Topics such as the alloy
designation system and product forms are addressed.
