We introduce and investigate a novel class of multipath routing games with elastic traffic. Users open one or more connections along different feasible paths from source to destination and act selfishly- seeking to transfer data as fast as possible. Users only control their routing choices , and once these choices have been made, the connection rates are elastic and determined via congestion control algorithms (e.g. TCP ) which ultimately maximize a certain notion of the network utility. We analyze the existence and the performance of the Nash Equilibria (NEs) of the resulting routing games.
