Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

Randomizing TCP
I worked on creating a new scheme for transmitting TCP packets. Our aim was to randomize the send times of TCP packets in the Linux kernel. We have, through simulations in ns, observed randomized TCP to perform better than TCP Reno in the face of congestion. The paper on which my work is based can be viewed at On Randomizing the Sending Times in TCP and other Window Based Algorithms.
