Conflict -aware replication for dynamic content Web sites
Conflict-aware replication is a novel lazy replication technique for scaling the back-end database of a dynamic content web server using a cluster of commodity computers. This technique provides both throughput scaling and ...
Transport phenomena in molecular-scale devices
The physics of atomic-scale systems is a subject of considerable interest, from both a basic-science and an engineering standpoint. We discuss three sets of experiments, each designed to elucidate a particular aspect of ...
Functionalization, coordination, and coating of carb on nanomaterials
Single-walled carbon nanotubes were covalently end-functionalized with various donor ligands in order to facilitate the coordination of metal catalyst nanoparticles. The purpose of this study was to optimize catalyst ...
