The TCP window size process can be modeled as a piecewise-deterministic Markov process that increases linearly and experiences downward jumps at Poisson times. We present a transient analysis of this window size process. Our main result is the Laplace transform of the transient moments. Formulae for the integer and fractional moments are derived, as well as an explicit characterization of the speed of convergence to steady state. Central to our approach are the infinitesimal generator and Dynkin's martingale.
