The title of my PhD Thesis is Free market communications. In many ways, the work I did during my PhD was a continuation of what I started during my MRes, which I also did at UCL.
This is the abstract from my Thesis, which I submitted at the end of August 2000, and which I successfully defended at my viva six weeks later...
I was looking at using pricing as a means of actively controlling a network (eg. the Internet) user's behaviour, in order to manage overload, and as a basis for guaranteeing Quality of Service.
Issues that arise include:
Much of my work is potentially commercially sensitive, and other aspects might be patentable by Nortel, so I can't describe them here! However, one aspect that I can go into is that of proportional fairness.
