In recent years, wireless networks have become increasingly common and an increasing number of devices are communicating with each other over lossy links. Unfortunately, TCP performs poorly over lossy links as it is unable to differentiate the loss due to packet corruption from that due to congestion. In this paper, we present an extension to TCP which(More)

This paper examines the attributes of TCP tunnels which are TCP circuits that carry IP packets and benefit from the congestion control mechanism of TCP/IP. The deployment of TCP tunnels reduces the many flows situation on the Internet to that of a few flows. TCP tunnels eliminate unnecessary packet loss in the core routers of the congested backbones which(More)
This paper discusses the application of TCP tunnels on the Internet and how Internet traffic can benefit from the congestion control mechanism of the tunnels. Primarily, we show the TCP tunnels offer TCP-friendly flows protection from TCP-unfriendly traffic. TCP tunnels also reduce the many flows situation on the Internet to that of a few flows. In(More)
The influence of immobile filler particles (spheres, fibers, platelets) on polymer-blend phase separation is investigated computationally using a generalization of the Cahn-Hilliard-Cook (CHC) model. Simulation shows that the selective affinity of one of the polymers for the filler surface leads to the development of concentration waves about the filler(More)
The phase separation of ultrathin polymer-blend films of polystyrene and polybutadiene on microcontact printed alkanethiol patterns with hydrophobic and hydrophilic end groups (ϪCH 3 and ϪCOOH͒ is investigated by atomic force microscopy. Simulations suggest that the phase-separation morphology can be controlled through patterns that modulate the(More)
