This paper introduces Time-lined TCP (TLTCP). TLTCP is a protocol designed to provide TCP-friendly delivery of time-sensitive data to applications that are loss-tolerant, such as streaming media players. Previous work on unicast delivery of streaming media over the Internet proposes using UDP and performs congestion control at the user level by regulating(More)
We present a systematic derivation of a coarse grained (CG) model for molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of a liquid crystalline (LC) compound containing an azobenzene mesogen. The model aims at a later use in a multiscale modeling approach to study liquid crystalline phase transitions that are (photo)induced by the trans/cis photoisomerization of the(More)
We investigate translocation mechanisms in smectic A liquid crystals (LCs) by a realistic, coarse-grained model of a LC compound comprising a stiff azobenzene core with flexible tails. We observe that the molecules can permeate from one smectic layer to the next via two different mechanisms, with and without significant reorientation, the former being(More)
