The high heterogeneity of large-scale p2p system leads us to the philosophy that the size of a node’s routing table and its updating cost should correspond to the node’s capacity. With this philosophy, we design a novel structured overlay: SmartBoa. SmartBoa categorizes nodes into different levels according to their capacities. A node at level k has a(More)
Nodes in peer-to-peer systems need to know the information about others to optimize neighbor selection, resource exchanging, replica placement, load balancing, query optimization, and other collaborative operations. However, how to collect this information effectively is still an open issue. In this paper, we propose a novel information collection protocol,(More)
. How to build an efficient and scalable p2p file sharing system is still an open question. Structured systems obtain O(log(N)) lookup upper bound by associating content with node. But they can not supporting complex queries. On the other hand, Gnutella-like unstructured systems support complex queries, but because of its random-graph topology and its(More)
This paper proposes combining non-Boltzmann sampling with free energy perturbation to allow calculations of the free energy of hydration of a solute with both solute-water and water-water interactions with the nearest waters calculated by high-level quantum models. The method involves simulation of an approximate model of all interactions and uses both free(More)
The structure of an accurate ab initio model of aqueous chloride ion was calculated at two high-temperature state points (573 K, 0.725 g/cm(3) and 723 K, 0.0098 g/cm(3)) by a two-step procedure. First, the structure of an approximate model was calculated from a molecular dynamics simulation of the model. Then the difference between the structure of the ab(More)
