Joux  presented a one round protocol for tripartitie key agreement and Al-Riyami et.al.  developed a number of tripartitie, one round, authenticated protocols related to MTI and MQV protocols. Recently, Boneh and Sil-verleg  studied multilinear forms, which provides a one round multi-party key agreement protocol. In this paper, we propose (n + 1)… (More)
BACKGROUND Nanoparticles (NPs) prepared from biodegradable polymers, such as poly (D,L-lactic acid-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA), have been studied as vehicles for the delivery of antigens to phagocytes. This paper describes the preparation of antigen-loaded PLGA-NPs for efficient cross-priming. METHODS NPs containing a similar amount of ovalbumin (OVA) but… (More)
This is the second part of a series of papers where we develop rigorous decay estimates for breather solutions of an averaged version of the non-linear Schrödinger equation. In this part we study the diffraction managed discrete non-linear Schrödinger equation, an equation which describes coupled waveguide arrays with periodic diffraction management… (More)
In this paper, we extend the 2-party key exchange protocol on braid groups to the group key agreement protocol based on the hardness of Ko-Lee problem. We also provide authenticity to the group key agreement protocol.
Previously we showed that biodegradable nanoparticles containing poly-IC or CpG oligodeoxynucleotide (ODN) together with ovalbumin (OVA) were efficient at inducing MHC-restricted presentation of OVA peptides in dendritic cells. The CTL-inducing activities of the nanoparticles were examined in the present study. Nanoparticles containing poly-IC or CpG ODN… (More)
We give a simple proof of existence of solutions of the dispersion management and diffraction management equations for zero average dispersion, respectively diffraction. These solutions are found as maximizers of non-linear and non-local vari-ational problems which are invariant under a large non-compact group. Our proof of existence of maximizer is rather… (More)
