Evangelia Pyrga (MPI Informatik, Saarbrücken): Contention Resolution under Selfishness
In many communications settings, such as wired and wireless local-area networks, when multiple users attempt to access a communication channel at the same time, a conflict results and none of the communications are successful. Contention resolution is the study of distributed transmission protocols designed to maximize notions of utility such as channel utilization in the face of blocking communications. An additional issue to be considered in the design of such protocols is that selfish users may have incentive to deviate from the prescribed behavior, if another transmission strategy increases their utility. In this talk, we will present asymptotically optimal contention resolution protocols that are robust to selfish users for different channel feedback models.
