A Proof of Quasi-Independence of Sliding Window Flow Control and Go-Back-n Error Recovery Under Independent Packet Errors


A quasi-independence result holds for the go-back-n automatic repeat request (ARQ) protocol and the sliding window ow control protocol if packet errors are independent. The result is independent of the magnitude of the packet error probability or the cost of an error. A parallel result for the selective repeat ARQ protocol, however, does not appear to hold.
