—Cellular automata models have been extensively used for simulating pedestrian movements. One weakness of this type of models, is the size of the cells which is mostly considered to be of the size of a pedestrian (i.e. 40cm*40cm or near to it). Each pedestrian stands in a single cell and during simulation time steps, transits to neighbouring cells. The size(More)
Peer-to-Peer (P2P) computing is said to be the next wave of computing after client-server and web-based computing. It provides an opportunity to harness a lot of idle peer-resources such as desktop computers across the Internet, for solving large-scale computing applications. Each peer is autonomous and it needs incentive for sustained contribution of its(More)
This paper describes the design and implementation of a dynamic load balancing algorithm, Loadserver, which is the hybrid of the two common load balancing models-centralised and distributed. Loadserver exploits the advantage of these models by using low-cost global information and distributed decision making. The algorithm has been incorporated in two(More)
