The Mirrored Server (MS) architecture uses multiple mirrored servers across multiple locations to alleviate the bandwidth bottleneck in the Client/Server (C/S) architecture. Each mirror receives and multicasts player updates to the others, simulates the game, and disseminates the new game state to players. However, keeping the game state consistent between(More)
This paper proposes the Networked Game Mobility Model (NGMM), for synthesising mobility in First-Person-Shooter (FPS) networked games. Current networked game research focuses on modelling low-level aspects, such as packet inter-arrival times and packet sizes, to optimise network traffic and efficient use of gaming servers. Due to the increasing popularity(More)

This paper defines a new restoration strategy for provision-ing bandwidth guaranteed recovery for multicast connections in presence of link failures. The new restoration strategy is formulated into a new Integer Linear Programming (ILP) algorithm and is compared with other existing restoration strategies. We also present a new heuristic algorithm based on(More)
In this talk, I will present recent results from a project led at NASAfGSFC, in collaboration with NASAfMSFC and JHU, focused on the development and application of an observation-driven integrated modeling system that represents aerosol, cloud, precipitation and land processes at satellite-resolved scales. The project, known as the NASA Unified WRF(More)
Gene isoforms are commonly found in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Since each isoform may perform a specific function in response to changing environmental conditions, studying the dynamics of gene isoforms is important in understanding biological processes and disease conditions. However, genome-wide identification of gene isoforms is technically(More)
