We present Tesseract, an experimental system that enables the direct control of a computer network that is under a single administrative domain. Tesseract’s design is based on the 4D architecture, which advocates the decomposition of the network control plane into decision, dissemination, discovery, and data planes. Tesseract provides two primary abstract(More)
The third generation of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-III) took data from 2008 to 2014 using the original SDSS wide-field imager, the original and an upgraded multi-object fiber-fed optical spectrograph, a new near-infrared high-resolution spectrograph, and a novel optical interferometer. All the data from SDSS-III are now made public. In particular,(More)
Multidrug resistant (MDR) cancer may be treated using combinations of encapsulated cytotoxic drugs and chemosensitizers. To optimize the effectiveness of this combinational approach, poly(d,l-lactide-co-glycolide acid) (PLGA) nanoparticles formulations capable of delivering a cytotoxic drug, vincristine, a chemosensitizer, verapamil, or their combination(More)
The fundamental feature of an OpenFlow network is that the controller is responsible for the configuration of switches for every traffic flow. This feature brings programmability and flexibility, but also puts the controller in a critical role in the performance of an OpenFlow network. To fairly service requests from different switches, to achieve low(More)
In a six-year program started in July 2014, the Extended Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (eBOSS) will conduct novel cosmological observations using the BOSS spectrograph at Apache Point Observatory. These observations will be conducted simultaneously with the Time Domain Spectroscopic Survey (TDSS) designed for variability studies and the(More)
PLGA nanoparticles simultaneously loaded with vincristine sulfate (VCR) and verapamil hydrochloride (VRP) were prepared via combining O/W emulsion solvent evaporation and salting-out method. Ten independent processing parameters and two materials characteristics were assessed systematically to enhance the incorporation of the two hydrophilic low molecular(More)
Both borneol and gastrodin are bioactive substances derived from traditional Chinese medicine. In this paper, the effect of borneol on the distribution of gastrodin to the brain in mice via oral administration was investigated. Gastrodin concentrations in plasma and gastrodigenin (active metabolite of gastrodin) concentrations in the brain of mice were(More)
PLGA nanoparticles simultaneously loaded with vincristine sulfate (VCR) and quercetin (QC) were prepared via O/W emulsion solvent evaporation. Six independent processing parameters and PLGA characteristics were assessed systematically to enhance the incorporation of the dual agents with different properties (VCR and QC, hydrophilic and hydrophobic molecule,(More)
Gastrodin is the major bioactive constituent of the traditional Chinese drug “Tianma.” It is used in the treatment of some nervous system diseases and can be transported to the brain via intranasal administration. In the current paper, the development of a novel ion-activated in situ gelling system for the nasal delivery of gastrodin is discussed. An in(More)
