Abstract 

   This memo presents a new stochastic optimal scheduler for the 
   Multipath Transmission Control Protocol (MPTCP). The new scheduler is 
   based on the Lyapunov optimatization technique, which can make online 
   control decision for data scheduling. Considering the payment of 
   users for different paths, this memo makes a trade off between the 
   throughput utility and the cost. The new scheduler can not only 
   satisfy the demand of service, but also minimize the cost as much as 
   possible.
