The primary functions of the ATM layer are associated with the routing and switching of ATM cells. Because ATM cells are packets, the switches are packet switches and the switching operation can be called forwarding, but by convention, because the ATM layer provides a connection-oriented service, the term ‘forwardingâ€™ is generally not used.

The path cells take and the resources allocated to them depend on their service category. This is determined when a virtual connecti

Workshop 2: Math. Analysis - Why do we do proofs?
The fourth class in Dr Joel Feinstein's G12MAN Mathematical Analysis module aims to motivate students to understand why we might want to do proofs, why proofs are important, and how they can help us. In particular, the student will learn the following: proofs can help you to really see WHY a result is true; problems that are easy to state can be hard to solve (Fermat's Last Theorem); sometimes statements which appear to be intuitively obvious may turn out to be false (Simpson's paradox); the ans

Multiple Regression
This site provides an introduction to the use of multiple regression, beginning with a glossary of important terms before taking the reader through a review of bivariate regression and the implementation and interpretation of multiple regression. One limitation to the site is its reliance on Minitab for calculations. Users, however, can reproduce the calculations using other software packages, such as SPSS or Excel. Prior knowledge of the basics of bivariate regression is assumed; thus, the site

KINDLER SYNDROME
Kindler Syndrome described by Theresa Kindler in 1954 is probably a variant of hereditary acrokeratotic Poikiloderma in which Poikiloderma is preceded by a tendency to blistering following traumatic blisters. There are few ultrastructural studies on this syndrome. The ultrastructural level of blister formation has not been well characterized. Prof. Camillo O.
