Buffers, buckets, and overflows

Gerhard Woeginger

DATE: 	Fri, Oct 20, 2017
TIME: 	14:00 c.t.
VENUE: 	Seminarraum Gödel, Favoritenstrasse 9-11


Abstract:
The talk investigate a combinatorial two-player
game, in which one player wants to keep the behavior
of an underlying water-bucket system stable whereas
the other player wants to cause overflows.  This game
is motivated by data management applications in wireless
sensor networks.  We construct optimal stable strategies
for many instances of this game and characterize the
optimal bucket sizes.
