I think this is the extended version
* B. Sikdar, S. Kalyanaraman  and  K. S. Vastola, ``An  Integrated  Model  for  the 
 Latency  and  Steady-State  Throughput  of  TCP  Connections, '' Performance 
Evaluation, vol. 46, no. 2-3, pp. 139-154, September 2001. 

and there is also 

* T. Bu, D. Towsley, "Fixed Point Approximation for TCP behavior in an AQM Network"
Proceedings of ACM SIGMETRICS 2001.

* E.  Alessio et al., "Analytical Estimation of the Completion Time of Mixed NewReno and Tahoe TCP traffic over Single and Multiple Bottleneck Networks," Proc. IEEE Globecom 2001.

in addition to the ones pointed out earlier by other colleagues on the list.

Hope this helps,

  There has been a paper on this ( maybe a little old ) 

  B. Sikdar, S. Kalyanaraman and K. S. Vastola, Analytic models and comparative study of the latency and steady-state throughput of TCP Tahoe, Reno and SACK . Proceedings of IEEE GLOBECOM, San Antonio, TX, November 2001.

    panos gevros' thesis looks at ensembles of different TCP's 

    TCP sweet (add i. m d)
    TCP sour (mimd)
    TCP bitter (gigd)
    TCP stout...

    i don't know anyone who has looked at the real problem (lots of flows
    in the various different startup, and post congestion event
    strategies) - most papers appear to be about the rather rare and
    ironically terms "steady state" :-)

    having said that, recent papers (e.g. OSDI one this week) point out
    that the average download object size is increasing due to p2p...
