ABSTRACT
The design of network protocols is a complicated and tedious endeavor. For instance, designing a MAC layer protocol for the 802.11 standard typically involves a number of high-level decisions (e.g., conditions for backoff steps) followed by an individual tuning of numeric parameters (e.g., backoff factors), for a variety of network conditions. A different way to view this design process is that of a designer being forced to fully specify a solution to a complex problem. At the other extreme of the programming spectrum lie Reinforcement Learning techniques which only require a minimal problem specification from the programmer.
