- Stability condition as the congestion constraints
- Delay constraints
- Flow conservation constraints

- Path Reconstruction & Filtering
- To screen out long paths for each connection c
- Loss in total rate is at most a half

- Goal
- To choose a set of flows to assign “large” rates without violating the congestion constraints too much
- Not to compromise delay bounds and the optimality of total rate
- choose a subset of paths with “large” rate, to minimize maximum congestion

- Randomized Rounding Approach

Not a simple regular rounding

- Challenges:
- Important yet hard-to-solve (NP-Complete) problem in a multi-hop wireless scenario even without considering any delay guarantees.
- Involving end-to-end queuing delay analysis & bounding, cross-layer optimization, flow rate control and routing. Only very limited analytical results are known with recent progresses, especially for end-to-end delay on arbitrary networks.

- Generally, delay bounds and
- LP Formulation
- Goal: to maximize total throughput
- Constraints:
- To find proper paths and rates for the set of source-destination connections
- To incorporate stability condition and delay constraints

- Randomized Rounding
- To obtain flows with lower-bounded throughput rates, without compromising the total rate and delay constraints.

Intuitively, LHS is lower-bound of delay;

RHS is input delay constraint parameter

- Delay Constraints Explained
- One-hop delay for any packet on a link is at least 1 slot
- The end-to-end delay of session c’s packets is at least
- When we choose cost(l) to be 1 for each link l, the delay constraints boil down to that , which is a necessary condition for the validity of any

- Solve the LP
- Reconstruct the paths from the solution to the LP
- Filtering Step:
- To screen out the paths for each connection c that are longer than
- The total rate remains at least a half of that from the original solution to the LP

To make sure paths are “short”

- Goal
- To find a throughput rate vector for the paths constructed after solving the LP
- Throughput rates should be “large” (i.e., lower-bounded)
- Not compromising the optimality of the total rate and delay constraints.

- Steps
- Preprocessing
- Rounding
- Post-processing

- Sub-step 1: Bin-packing
- Bin-pack paths into groups

- Sub-step 2: Minimax Integer Program (MIP) Formulation
- Formulate a Minimax Integer Program
- that minimizes maximum congestion and
- that chooses one path in each group with “large” flow rate

- Solving such an MIP is generally NP-Complete
- Need to employ approximate algorithms to solve this problem
- But before applying the solution techniques, need to perform modification and reformulation as in the following 3 sub-steps

- Formulate a Minimax Integer Program

- Sub-step 3: Path Refinement
- “Short-cut” a path that goes through an interference set for over a constant K0times: possible under unit-disk graphinterference model
- The maximum number of links of a path that lie in the same interference set is under K0

- Sub-step 4: Relaxation of Congestion Constraints
- Partition the plane into 1/8 × 1/8 squaregrid cells, s.t.:the number of congestion constraints that involve a given path is at most
- Possible under unit-disk graph interference model

- Sub-step 5: MIP Reformulation
- Formulate a relaxation of the previous MIP with
- Refined paths from Sub-step 3, and
- Grid-cell-based congestion constraints from Sub-step 4

- Formulate a relaxation of the previous MIP with
- After Preprocessing
- Path lengths do not increase

- Ready to Perform Rounding
- To obtain exactly one path from each group with “large” flow rate

- Choosing Proper Flow Rates
- Scale down the flow rates by a reasonably small factor of , s.t. the original congestion constraints of the LP will be satisfied
- That is how the factor of comes into the approximation ratio
