  • Patent number: 10291512
    Abstract: In one embodiment, path routing in a node fabric of an information-centric network (ICN) includes transmitting a request from a source application to an upstream node via node faces of nodes in the node fabric along a path encoded in a Path Steering Value (PSV); and receiving at the source application from the upstream node a reply that travels along a return path encoded in the PSV. The PSV is generated by pairwise encoding pairs of node faces successively traversed by the reply and is represented by a deterministically decodable pairing function. Node face identifiers can be deterministically, i.e., uniquely, decoded from the PSV. The deterministically decodable pairing function is selected from a Cantor function, a Hopcroft and Ullman variant of the Cantor function, Hilbert curve algorithm, Morton code, and a bitwise pairing function.

  • Patent number: 5591185
    Abstract: A method for reprofiling or otherwise smoothing and enhancing the anterior or stromal cornea by scraping. The method is useful as a primary technique for reprofiling the stromal portion of the cornea following a lamellar keratectomy or as a secondary technique for use in combination with other corneal refractive procedure to dislocate debris and smooth and enhance a worked area of the cornea.

  • Patent number: 4983580
    Abstract: Improvement in healing of wounds of the corneal stroma is obtained by placing into the wounds a corneal mortar composition comprising an extracellular matrix material and an ophthalmologically compatible carrier material, the composition having a sufficiently high viscosity to retain it within the wound under wound-healing conditions.
