In this thesis, a new model for the slow start phase based on the discrete evolutions of congestion window is developed, and we integrate this part into the improved TCP steady state model for a better prediction performance. Combining these short and steady state models, we propose an extensive stochastic model which can accurately predict the throughput and latency of the TCP connections as functions of loss rate, round-trip time (RTT), and file size. We validate our results through simulation experiments. The results show that our model?s predictions match the simulation results better than the Padhye and Cardwell's stochastic models, about 75% improvement in the accuracy of performance predictions for the steady state and 20% improvement for the short-lived TCP flows.
