Towards scalable collective communication for multicomputer interconnection networks

Journal Article
Al-Dubai, A., Ould-Khaoua, M., El-Zayyat, K., Ababneh, I., & Al-Dobai, S. (2004)
Towards scalable collective communication for multicomputer interconnection networks. Information Sciences, 163(4), 293-306. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ins.2003.06.014
A considerable number of broadcast algorithms have been proposed for the mesh over the past decade. Nonetheless, most of these algorithms do not exhibit good scalability prope...

Journal Article
McCall, R., Benyon, D., Smyth, M., O'Neill, S., McCall, R., & Carroll, F. (2006)
The place probe: exploring a sense of place in real and virtual environments. Presence: Teleoperators and Virtual Environments, 15(6), 668-687. https://doi.org/10.1162/pres.15.6.668
This paper describes the design, application, and refinement of a qualitative tool designed to study sense of place. The Place Probe incorporates a range of stimuli and techni...

Hierarchical Home Agent Architecture for Mobile IP Communications

Conference Proceeding
Romdhani, I., Munoz, J., Bettahar, H., & Bouabdallah, A. (2006)
Hierarchical Home Agent Architecture for Mobile IP Communications. In 11th IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications, 2006. ISCC '06. Proceedings, 136-141. doi:10.1109/iscc.2006.84
While the Mobile IP protocol does not exclude the use of multiple Home Agents (HAs), it does not impose any particular model either. Recent solutions propose that a mobile nod...

Analysis of an agent-based metric-driven for ad-hoc, on-demand routing.

Journal Article
Buchanan, W. J., Migas, N., Sinclair, G., & McArtney, K. (2006)
Analysis of an agent-based metric-driven for ad-hoc, on-demand routing. Ad hoc networks, 4(2), 146-167. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.adhoc.2004.04.009
Ad-hoc networks could bring many benefits over traditional, fixed networks. Unfortunately, they have many difficulties, including the selection of the optimal route, the avail...
