Realizing adaptive and efficient peer-to-peer service-oriented architectures for MANET environments is a challenging problem. In particular, robust and efficient service discovery and service migration are critical in the constantly changing and bandwidth limited MANET environments. In these scenarios, service migration lays the foundation for self-adaptive… (More)
The MAGIC Telescope has the largest reflecting surface, among other Cherenkov detectors, in order to have an energy threshold well below 100 GeV. In this contribution, we describe the technology used for the production and the optical qualities of the surface currently mounted onto the telescope. MAGIC features now 964 square mirrors, 50 cm by side, each of… (More)
Agile computing is an innovative metaphor for distributed computing systems and prescribes a new approach to their design and implementation. Agile computing may be defined as opportunistically discovering, manipulating, and exploiting available computing and communication resources in order to improve capability, performance, efficiency, fault-tolerance,… (More)
In this paper we introduce a group-messaging interface that allows humans to efficiently interact with a group of agents through a hierarchical and customizable text protocol. Our approach is presented in the context of the MAST mobile agent-based framework for security and administration of large scale computer networks. The MAST framework is primarily… (More)
