*> We actually have done some work based on field theory and network
*> control. More specifically, we have designed and implemented (in ns)
*> potential based routing algorithms (using scalar field theory) that are
*> sensitive to heavily congested links. Our simulations are encouraging --
*> they show significantly low latencies and jitter numbers and almost no
*> packet losses when compared to the standard shortest path routing. We
*> are in the process of writing up our results as a paper.
*> If you would like to talk more, we can take this off the list.

This sounds very interesting, and I look forward to seeing your work.
I have believed for some time that we are in urgent need of new ideas
in Internet routing. [Note, however, before we go too far, that the
end2end research group does almost everything except routing ;-))]
