The dynamic resource sharing that is a characteristic of store-and-forward computer/communication networks allows efficient use of the communication channel but may result in congestion and unfairness with high utilizations. A flow control algorithm is presented to prevent these effects by fairly allocating input rates to the users of the network. The allocation of rates is posed as an optimiza
