•Design and Evaluation of Network Survivability Schemes for Correlated Multi-Failure Scenarios By Oscar Diaz
Hardcover: $19.38
Ships in 6-8 business days.
Computer network recovery from multiple correlated failures is a major concern given the increased level of infrastructure vulnerability to natural disasters, massive power failures, and malicious... More > attacks. In many cases, existing network recovery schemes cannot handle such scenarios as they are mostly designed for isolated single node and link failures. Hence in order to properly address this concern, improved network recovery schemes are needed based upon probabilistic failure models. This work presents some novel path protection algorithms along these lines to help minimize failure probabilities and also take into account well-known traffic engineering concerns. Network simulation is also used to evaluate the proposed solutions.< Less

Hepatitis C and Dengue viruses belong to the family of Flaviviridae. Viruses in this family are enveloped, have positive-sense RNA and are responsible for a variety of life threatening diseases.... More > Hepatitis C virus is the major etiological agent of post-transfusion hepatitis worldwide. An estimated 3 % of the world's population is infected with HCV according to the World Health Organization. Infection with HCV will most regularly result in chronic hepatitis, which leads to liver cirrhosis, hepatocellular carcinoma and liver failure. Dengue is currently the most important viral disease transmitted by mosquitoes afflicting humans the world context. Clinical symptoms range from mild fevers to a severe haemorrhagic disease. To date neither specific antiviral treatments exist nor are there any vaccines available for both infections. Thus there is an urgent need for new therapies.< Less
