In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Computer network, Mathematical optimization, Nash equilibrium, Distributed computing and Social network are his primary areas of study. Eitan Altman interconnects Wireless, Wireless network and Throughput in the investigation of issues within Computer network. As part of one scientific family, Eitan Altman deals mainly with the area of Wireless network, narrowing it down to issues related to the Relay, and often Network packet.

His work on Maximization as part of general Mathematical optimization research is often related to Convex optimization, thus linking different fields of science. The various areas that Eitan Altman examines in his Nash equilibrium study include Distributed algorithm, Equilibrium selection and Stochastic game. His studies examine the connections between Distributed computing and genetics, as well as such issues in Game theory, with regards to Computer security.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A General SDN-Based IoT Framework with NVF Implementation (27 citations)
  • Forever Young: Aging Control For Hybrid Networks (25 citations)
  • Complete game-theoretic characterization of SIS epidemics protection strategies (21 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Computer network
  • The Internet
  • Telecommunications

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Computer network, Distributed computing, Nash equilibrium, Mathematical optimization and Heterogeneous network. His work on Resource allocation as part of general Computer network study is frequently linked to Mobile telephony, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work deals with themes such as Game theory and Base station, which intersect with Resource allocation.

His study in Distributed computing is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Markov perfect equilibrium, Investment strategy, Stochastic game and Price of anarchy. His Nash equilibrium research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Correlated equilibrium and Equilibrium selection. In his research, he undertakes multidisciplinary study on Mathematical optimization and Constant.
