Abstract

Different routing strategies may result in different behaviors of traffic in internet. We review the routing strategies developed recently in the field of physics and show that the traffic can be significantly improved by the adaptive routing approaches. Comparing with the shortest path approach, the adaptive routing approaches can reduce the over-loading of hub nodes and thus increase the capacity of network. Especially, for the realistic situation with fluctuated traffic, the local self-adjusting traffic awareness protocol can efficiently reduce the traffic congestion. These results provide new insight in sustaining the normal function of Internet.
