The routing of customers in a network of queues (e.g., packets in a communication network) is considered as a decentralized (team) control problem. By a suitable information exchange among the network nodes, a partially nested information structure with a common past is obtained, which allows the existence of a sufficient statistic and the exploitation of a… CONTINUE READING
