The paper considers a decentralized stochastic team problem with a partially-nested information pattern, that arises in the context of flow control. Basically, we consider a network with a number of users having access to differently delayed versions of the same information, with each one deciding on his own rate of transmission, but participating in a common cost quantifying the outcome of their joint actions. This leads to a Linear-Quadratic-Gaussian (LQG) team problem, with partially nested… CONTINUE READING
