This paper presents a discrete-time Markov chain model for the Reno version of TCP the transmission control protocol for reliable transport on the Internet. The purpose is the evaluation of stationary TCP flows behavior using performance measures such as the mean throughput. The model is based on previous works which are generalized by taking into account the slow start phases that appear after each time-out recovery, the importance of which is discussed.
