This project deal with the allocation of traffic across multiple routing paths and estimating the end to end packet success rates. It introduces a statistical characterization into the maximum network flow problem to compensate for the reduction in network flow due to the loss of jammed packets. Here the problem of throughput optimization under probabilistic jamming to that of optimal investment portfolio selection is mapped. It is shown that in multisource networks, this centralized optimization problem can be solved using a distributed algorithm based on decomposition in Network Utility Maximization (NUM).
