Modeling Networks that Drop Packets

The objective of this research is to gain a quantitative understanding of the performance of networks that drop packets to resolve resource contention. We have analyzed the performance of a butterfly network built with packet-dropping switches under simple input traffic assumptions. We are currently studying other networks for the same purposes.
