Designing Optimal Resource Sharing in the Long Run

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Mihaela van der Schaar

Host: Professor Tara Javidi

The problem of resource sharing is ubiquitous: transceivers need to share the scarce wireless spectrum; traffic flows need to share routers’ available bandwidth; applications and tasks need to share the central processing units (CPUs) and memory of computer systems; consumer appliances need to share the available energy supply etc. A key feature of all such resource sharing problems is that the use of the resource by a single agent (e.g. a user, a transceiver, an application) has a negative effect on the usage of other agents sharing the same resource. Existing state-of-the-art solutions to this problem are generally inefficient, require extensive and perfect feedback and monitoring, and most of the time cannot cope with dynamic entry and exit or self-interested users.
In this talk, I will propose a novel, systematic and practical design framework for distributed resource sharing that is optimal (efficient), decentralized, requires minimal and imperfect feedback and monitoring, all [More...]
