A modified Aitken-Extrapolation method is proposed for network flow control in this paper. Based on the dual model, this algorithm leads to a decentralized optimal solution to the problem of maximizing the aggregate source utility over the transmission rates. The contribution of this paper is to compare the proposed Aitken-extrapolation algorithm with some available optimization flow control algorithms in the recent literature and to analyze their rate of convergence. Simulation results demonstrate the consistency with our theoretical analysis.
