We study a class of distributed optimization problems for multiple shared resource allocation in Internet-connected devices. We propose a derandomized version of an existing stochastic additive-increase and multiplicative-decrease (AIMD) algorithm. The proposed solution uses one bit feedback signal for each resource between the system and the Internet-connected devices and does not require inter-device communication. Additionally, the Internet-connected devices do not compromise their privacy… Expand

AIMD in a discrete time implementation or with a non-constant shared resource
A disturbed AIMD model is developed based on the model introduced by Shorten et al. that includes discrete time implementation and time varying resource availability and bound the influence of these disturbances, caused by either a discrete implementation or small variations in the available resource.
