Comments on "Optimal Resource Allocation in Overlay Multicast"
April 2008 (vol. 19 no. 4)
pp. 572-573
In this comments paper, we revisit the network model introduced in [1]. We discuss the inaccuracy of the model and, to correct the network model, we propose to apply directed capacity constraints for directed flows. Based on comparison of numerical results, we show that the corrected model leads to better accuracy than the original model.
