Abstract [en]

Conceive being in an elevator in deep space, not accelerating, and sufficiently distant from gravitational convergence centers to approximate an inertial reference-frame. Under current modes of analysis, whether the elevator has velocity or not is not determinable from within. For the argument we shall presume that in this elevator reference-frame the laws of inertial physics are valid (recognizable). You judge that you are weightless. Next imagine that you move toward one end of the elevator with acceleration g (still under the laws of inertial physics). You are then asked to decide whether the elevator is in acceleration or in deceleration. It should be clear that you have no means for deciding from inside the elevator, using the Newton model or the Einstein model (Special Relativity). Within reasonable limits you may determine g but the decision problem remains. These two cases are dual in their coherence and therefore one is not simpler then the other. This paper argues that this non-decidability in inertial reference-frames cannot be eliminated even with another observation point without making ad hoc assumptions that beg the question. In effect, Einstein's argument introduces pseudoforces.

Abstract [en]

The rationale for Newtonian gravitational attraction supports the concepts of inertial mass, and gravitational mass. This support tacitly imposes an equivalence for these designations of mass so differently defined. Using a dual application of Newton�s Universal Law of Gravitation leads to a denial of �free-fall�. This in turn leads to the denial of the Equivalence Principle in Newton�s own terms. At the foundation of Einstein�s relativistic theory of gravitation, the Equivalence Principle is stated as a postulate. Therefore, if my argument holds then Einstein�s theory of gravitation is based on a false principle.

Abstract [en]

The security concerns for a Peer-to-Peer implementation of Nomadic Networks are described with special emphasis on taxonomy and on their identification. The underpinning reference question is how to provide a wide scope of secure networking functions in a completely decentralized and unmanaged network (an ad hoc mobile nomadic network). Though many of the identified security concerns apply to any overlay network, the complete selection of concerns is based on their possible importance in an implementation such as the AmIGo Project collaboration for a ubiquitous nomadic network.

Abstract [en]

Internet has given software providers possibilities for electronic software distribution (ESD). At the same time bandwidth limitations lead to poor performance and scalability of the delivery process. The problem is even harder when delivering large, resource consuming software packages and media content. We propose an agent-based architectural model as a middleware for intelligent P2P electronic software delivery. In this paper we analyze the possibility of applying the peer-to-peer technology to the process of software delivery, relying on the experience and learned lessons of the related technologies. To this effect we analyze the available material on this topic and identify the important criteria that are crucial for the wide acceptance of ESD by both software providers and end-users. We argue that the proposed model can be used in building a system that meets most, if not all, of the identified criteria. The work presented in this paper opens a number of interesting research issues and investigation opportunities.

Abstract [en]

The concepts of Smart Home, Connected Home, Home Networking or Home Communication are quite well known through the media. This interest toward home automation and control leads to a new view for the future home, a new life style, with new services and applications. This paper points out the key features of P2P technology that can boost the optimization of home automation. With this technology in place we find new benefits emerging for both house-holds and real estate companies. Research directions for future work are also suggested.

Abstract [en]

An important concern for P2P developers is accountabil-ity. The few sources on P2P accountability define the term as a mechanism that makes the users accountable for their activity in the network. This general definition requires some refining to render it useful in the develop-ment of a P2P implementation. By �accountability� we denote three general functions for the system. One is the system ability to detect and log any activity inside the system for future reference. Two is the system ability to convert this logged data into statistical information. Three is the response generated from this statistical in-formation. Thus we have three foundational functions on which accountability is based. This paper suggests a low-overhead accountability scheme for content sharing.

Abstract [en]

Time-Module Intensive Reading Program is the first speed-reading course ever accredited by the University of Paris. All general content developed in the Paris lectures and exercises are included herein. This system has been taught successfully to students and professionals in America and Europe, and has had great success in Japan. It represents a systematic attrition of bad reading habits through exercising good reading habits.
