  • Preston D.
  • Wang E.

When condensed droplets coalesce on a superhydrophobic nanostructured surface, the resulting droplet can jump due to the conversion of excess surface energy into kinetic energy. This phenomenon has been shown to enhance condensation heat transfer by up to 30% compared to state-of-the-art dropwise condensing surfaces. However, after the droplets jump ...

Optimal Multipath Congestion Control and Request Forwarding in Information-Centric Networks: Protocol Design and Experimentation

  • Carofiglio G.
  • Gallo M.
  • Muscariello L.

The evolution of the Internet into a distributed Information access system calls for a paradigm shift to enable an evolvable future network architecture. Information-Centric Networking (ICN) proposals rethink the communication model around named data, in contrast with the host-centric transport view of TCP/IP. Information retrieval is natively pull-based, driven by ...
