GlycoMod (http://www.expasy.ch/tools/glycomod/) is a software tool designed to find all possible compositions of a glycan structure from its experimentally determined mass. The program can be used to predict the composition of any glycoprotein-derived oligosaccharide comprised of either underivatised, methylated or acetylated monosaccharides, or with a(More)
We present a time parallel technique for the fast gen eration of self similar tra c which is suitable for performance studies of Asynchronous Transfer Mode ATM networks The technique is based on the well known result according to which the aggrega tion of a large number of heavy tailed ON OFF type renewal reward processes asymptotically ap proximates a(More)
The multiplexing of several lightly loaded links onto a more heavily loaded output link is a problem of considerable importance to the design and traffic engineering of many types of packet-oriented telecommunications equipment, including that used in Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) networks. Network configurations generally require the cascaded operation(More)
Glycans can be O-linked to proteins via the hydroxyl group of serine, threonine, tyrosine, hydroxylysine or hydroxyproline. Sometimes the glycan is O-linked to the hydroxyl group via a phosphodiester bond. The core monosaccharide residue may be N-acetylgalactosamine, N-acetylglucosamine, galactose, glucose, fucose, mannose, xylose or arabinose. These(More)
The simulation of high{speed telecommunication systems such as ATM (Asyn-chronous Transfer Mode) networks has generally required excessively long run times. This paper reviews alternative approaches using parallelism to speed up simulations of discrete event systems, and telecommunication networks in particular. Subsequently, a new simulation method is(More)
This document provides the entry point to the set of documentation about the Congestion Exposure (ConEx) protocol. It explains the motivation for including a ConEx marking at the IP layer: to expose information about congestion to network nodes. Although such information may have a number of uses, this document focuses on how the information communicated by(More)
Under suitable conditions, artificial in situ aeration is an appropriate and economical method of alleviating water pollution. Regional planning for the control of water pollution can properly consider the use of artificial aeration on a river network in conjunction with other pollution abatement techniques. Application of optimization methods can yield(More)
