Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper, we propose a novel modified secant method to compute the flow fair share rate within the framework of the core-stateless fair queueing [1]. The geometric explanation and numerical results demonstrate that the proposed method possesses better performance in terms of accuracy and convergence than that proposed in [1].
