David A Burgoon: Zymbolic history management system. Hewlett Packard Company, January 6, 1998: US05706510 (122 worldwide citation)

A zymbolic history management system (ZHMS) allows a user to create annotated symbolic links (zymlinks) to files in a shared file system. A single link is created to each file of the shared file system which a user wishes to access. A zymlink to the shared file system may be updated via a zupdate co ...

Hong Yi Tzeng: High speed routing using compressed tree process. Lucent Technologies, May 23, 2000: US06067574 (122 worldwide citation)

A router uses the destination address of its incoming packets to decide the proper outgoing interfaces by searching among all of the stored prefixes for the prefix which has the longest match when compared to the destination address in the packet. Prefix trees are employed to represent the set of pr ...

Dirk Coldewey: Method and apparatus for prefetching recursive data structures. January 25, 2005: US06848029 (121 worldwide citation)

Computer systems are typically designed with multiple levels of memory hierarchy. Prefetching has been employed to overcome the latency of fetching data or instructions from or to memory. Prefetching works well for data structures with regular memory access patterns, but less so for data structures ...

Alfred E Dunlop, Brian W Kernighan: Placement of components on circuit substrates. AT&T Bell Laboratories, Robert O Nimtz, March 18, 1986: US04577276 (116 worldwide citation)

In laying out integrated circuits on a substrate, the placement of the components relative to each other is important in minimizing conductor area and hence chip area. Large scale integration often uses polycells which are lined up in rows to realize the digital logic circuitry. A partitioning proce ...
