The representative scheme in which a small set of multicast group members are selected as representatives to represent congested areas and hence suppress feedback from other receivers is an effective way of avoiding feedback implosion. Two algorithms used for selecting group members as representatives are further investigated. It is shown through simulation that the algorithm that selects representatives using the loss probability observed at the receivers is more effective in reducing the feedback returned.
