Computer scientists at Washington University in St. Louis have patented two major inventions that should make Internet applications like e-mail, the World Wide Web and electronic commerce 10 times faster than they are now. George Varghese, Ph.D., associate professor of computer science in the School of Engineering and Applied Science, has collaborated with three Washington University colleagues in developing processes that enable the "lookup" for an Internet address to be done at the unfathomable speed of 100 nanoseconds, compared with the current average, a none-too-shabby 1.2 microseconds. This 10-fold increase in speed promises to give routers a faster throughput by making it easier to find the destination addresses for their messages. Varghese presented a paper on the techniques at a fall networking conference of the Association for Computing Machinery.
