Peer-to-Peer (P2P) live streaming has become a popular means of distributing real-time online video contents. The distributed nature of the system provides great flexibility, scalability and robustness. The central theme of this thesis revolves around the following general questions that concern the modeling, performance, and stability of P2P live-streaming systems.: 1. What models are effective in describing and analyzing the dynamics of a P2P streaming network and what are the trade-offs in…

A Simple Model for Chunk-Scheduling Strategies in P2P Streaming

A simple stochastic model is described that can be used to compare different downloading strategies to random peer selection and proposed is a Mixed strategy that achieves the best of both worlds.

Exploring Coding Benefits in CDN-Based VoD Systems

The strength and weakness of a family of coding strategies for CDN-based VoD streaming systems, characterized by block sizes, are discussed and a model to evaluate the benefits brought by each strategy is proposed.

Mathematical Challenges in Stochastic Networks

The workshop was devoted to the discussion of recent progress in modern stochastic network theory and to the exploration of open mathematical challenging problems in the field; while being centered around applied probability, it also included a substantial amount of graph theory and (combinatorial) optimization.



A Simple Model for Analyzing P2P Streaming Protocols

A simple stochastic model is described that can be used to compare different data-driven downloading strategies based on two performance metrics: continuity (probability of continuous playback), and startup latency (expected time to start playback).

Exploring the optimal chunk selection policy for data-driven P2P streaming systems

A general and unified mathematical framework is presented to analyze a large class of chunk selection policies and provides some interesting observations on the optimal chunk selection policy: it is of shaped and becomesmore greedy as the upload capacity of the server increases.
