Thanks for the pointer.
But why fairness and friendliness are equally important?
I though all those congestion algorithms are already intra-protocol fair
(otherwise, it will be a design flaw and won't get implemented)
As to inter-protocol friendliness, looks to me, every TCP congestion
controls are already friendly enough comparing with UDP.
