Toward fast and efficient IP-level network topology capture

Thomas Bourgeau, Timur Friedman
2012 Proceedings of the 2012 ACM conference on CoNEXT student workshop - CoNEXT Student '12  
There are two novel aspects to our approach: it focuses on obtaining the network graph rather than a full set of individual traces, and it uses past probing results in an adaptive way to guide future probing  ...  This paper presents a new network topology capture algorithm, NTC, which aims to better capture network dynamics through accelerated probing, reducing the probing load while maintaining good coverage.  ...  INTRODUCTION Large-scale distributed traceroute-based measurement systems are used to obtain the topology of the Internet at the IP-level which serves as the basis to monitor and understand the behavior  ...

Classical to Path-Integral Adaptive Resolution in Molecular Simulation: Towards a Smooth Quantum-Classical Coupling

A. B. Poma, L. Delle Site
2010 Physical Review Letters  
The same does not occur when it comes to classical-quantum adaptivity.  ...  The main reason for this is the difficulty in describing a continuous transition between the two different kind of physical principles: probabilistic for the quantum and deterministic for the classical  ...  For this reason here we do not present a technical description of the method, instead we explain why this approach is optimal to adaptively couple quantum systems with a classical bath.  ...
