Wide-area network traffic engineering enables network operators to reduce congestion and improve utilization by balancing load across multiple paths. Current approaches to traffic engineering can be modeled in terms of a routing component that computes forwarding paths, and a load balancing component that maps incoming flows onto those paths dynamically,… (More)
A tetraphenylethene-based caged compound (TPE-C) is designed and synthesized. TPE-C is non-fluorescent either in solution or in aggregated state, but its emission can be induced to emit strong cyan emission in the aggregated state by UV irradiation. This property enables TPE-C to be applied in photo-patterning and anti-counterfeiting related areas.
In the field of metallic materials with amorphous structures, it is vitally important to understand the glass formation and to predict glass-forming ability (GFA) in terms of constituent elements and alloy compositions. In this study, an expression has been formulated from first-principles calculations to predict the trend of GFA by hybridizing both… (More)
OBJECTIVES Statins are a well-known primary and secondary prevention drug for cardiovascular disease and NICE guidelines have been issued to identify key indicators for their use. An audit looking into statin prescribing for medical inpatients was carried out in two geographically distinct London hospitals. DESIGN A prospective inpatient audit of medical… (More)
The precipitation of nanoparticles plays a key role in determining the properties of many structural materials, and the understanding of their formation and stabilization mechanisms has been a long standing interest in the material field. However, the critical issues involving the group precipitation of various nanoparticles and their cooperative hardening… (More)
In this paper, we will be discussing some faults with existing load balancing algorithms and architectures. We will propose a new load balancing algorithm and a new grid architecture that will utilize the new load balancing algorithm. The performance of the new load balancing algorithm will be compared with an existing load balancing algorithm.
