Network performance can be increased if the traditionally separated network layers are jointly optimized. Recently, network utility maximization has emerged as a powerful framework for studying such cross-layer issues. In this paper, we review and explain three distinct techniques that can be used to engineer utility-maximizing protocols: primal, dual, and cross decomposition. The techniques suggest layered, but loosely coupled, network architectures and protocols where different resourcedoi:10.1109/jsac.2006.879364 fatcat:53onmspkgnbylmi5eeg7xhqtrq
