Devavrat Shah, Damon Wischik
Much research in networking, in areas such as TCP congestion control, wireless MAC protocols, fair sharing of data centers, and optimization of distributed algorithms, falls under the general heading of _resource allocation_. The network modeling community has developed a general-purpose language for describing resource allocation problems, and canonical mechanisms for solving them. We believe these should be taught as fundamental principles to graduate students in networking. This will encourage them to apply ideas from one area of networking to another, it will help them to distinguish which parts of a problem need hands-on systems-level work and which do not, and it will make them think more deeply about economic and social

questions such as network neutrality.
