In most large-scale Peer-To-Peer (P2P) live streaming systems, mesh structures are constructed to provide robustness in dynamic P2P environment. The pull scheduling algorithm is widely used in this mesh structure, but it restricts the performance of entire system. Recently, network coding is introduced in mesh P2P streaming system to improve the performance, which makes the push scheduling strategy feasible. Although some push scheduling algorithms based on network coding have achieved some success, there is still a lack of the theoretical model and optimal solution.
