      Computing Nash equilibria for scheduling on restricted parallel links 

      Gairing, M.; Lücking, T.; Mavronicolas, Marios; Monien, Burkhard (2010)
      We consider the problem of routing nusers on m parallel links under the restriction that each user may only be routed on a link from a certain set of allowed links for the user. So, this problem is equivalent to the ...
