  • The Internet

Larry L. Peterson spends much of his time researching Computer network, Distributed computing, The Internet, PlanetLab and Overlay network. His Computer network study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Software deployment. In Distributed computing, Larry L. Peterson works on issues like Network packet, which are connected to Pentium.

Larry L. Peterson has included themes like Network planning and design, Computer security, Exploit, Network simulation and Network topology in his The Internet study. His work in PlanetLab addresses subjects such as Virtualization, which are connected to disciplines such as Time-sharing, Virtual network and Software. His studies deal with areas such as Testbed, Node, Network architecture and Focus as well as Overlay network.

His most cited work include:

  • OpenFlow: enabling innovation in campus networks (7096 citations)
  • TCP Vegas: end to end congestion avoidance on a global Internet (1521 citations)
  • TCP Vegas: new techniques for congestion detection and avoidance (1224 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His scientific interests lie mostly in Computer network, Distributed computing, Operating system, The Internet and PlanetLab. As part of his studies on Computer network, Larry L. Peterson often connects relevant subjects like Overlay network. His Inter-process communication study, which is part of a larger body of work in Distributed computing, is frequently linked to Protocol, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His The Internet study is related to the wider topic of World Wide Web. The concepts of his PlanetLab study are interwoven with issues in Computer security, Virtualization, Testbed and Service. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including TCP tuning, TCP Friendly Rate Control, TCP global synchronization and TCP acceleration.
