  • Patent number: 10416256
    Abstract: Methods for measuring physico-chemical properties using a nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer are disclosed, including methods to determine an initial amount of a substance, usually a liquid, contained inside a porous material and an initial amount of the substance, usually a liquid, present outside the porous material, methods to measure the release kinetics of a substance, such as a liquid, from a porous material, and methods for performing chemical reactions and other physico-chemical operations in situ inside a nuclear magnetic resonance probe after a sample is loaded into a nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer. The apparatuses for performing these methods are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 5109483
    Abstract: Enhanced type 2.1 nodes for SNA networks provide network routing of information between non-adjacent network nodes and program-to-program linkage across the network. These nodes are called "advanced peer to peer networking" (abbreviated APPN) nodes. Network state information, describing the topology and resources of the network is disseminated betweeen APPN nodes by a first data link control exchange of identification (XID) information indicating node type (and thereby distinguishing APPN nodes from other nodes) and other exchanges conducted over a newly defined control point to control point (abbreviated CP--CP) session having a message architecture unique to APPN type nodes. The XID exchange is conducted whenever a link between nodes is activated, and when the exchanging nodes are both APPN, and if both are available to participate in as CP--CP session, they automatically engage in a second exchange of session binding signals which establish a pair of sessions between the nodes.

  • Patent number: 4926414
    Abstract: In a computer network a logical duplex session between control points of adjacent network nodes is comprised of two physical half duplex sessions. Each half duplex session includes the send session of one node and the receive session of the adjacent node. In the event of a session failure at either node, the session from the other node is also deactivated so the nodes may begin recovery in phase with each other. Unique messages are exchanged between the adjacent nodes to distinguish new from old messages, such that the nodes are resynchronized only when new messages are present on each session.

  • Patent number: 4914571
    Abstract: A LOCATE search dynamically locates resources (e.g., logical units (LUs) and transaction program and files associated with LUs) in a computer network so that a session can be established between the origin and the destination of the search.In a network which includes end nodes associated with server nodes, a resource contained in any node is located by a requesting node. The requesting node initiates a search of the resources residing within itself. If the resource does not reside in the requesting node, the server node searches the resources known to the server node that reside anywhere in the nework. If the resource is not known by the server node, it searchers all resources that reside in its associated end nodes. If the resource does not reside in the associated end nodes, either a request is sent to a central directory if one exists or a search of all resources in the network is made.
