We present NPP – a new framework for online routing of bandwidth guaranteed paths with local restoration. NPP relies on the propagation of only aggregate link usage information [2,9] through routing protocols. The key advantage of NPP is that it delivers the bandwidth sharing performance achieved by propagating complete per path link usage information [9],(More)

Cisplatin or cis-diamminedichloroplatinum (CDDP) is the first member of a class of platinum-containing anti-cancer drugs that act by binding to and causing cross-linking of deoxyribonucleic acid, which ultimately triggers apoptosis. Cisplatin has a broad-spectrum antineoplastic activity against various types of human tumors. Unfortunately, the optimal(More)
