Flow control in a wireless mesh network is an optimization problem. The task is to maximize the aggregate utility of elastic traffic sources. The work has been a basis for analyzing various transport-level (including TCP-based) congestion control algorithms. The task takes is to analyze the self-interference of flows and assigns channel, level of transmission power and time slots to each link. Such that the minimum rate requirements of all coexisting flows are met, the rates at which each traffic source will send packets is optimized.
