My thesis is titled Challenges to Reliable Data Transport over Heterogeneous Wireless Networks. I filed on August 11, 1998. This page contains the list of chapters and pointers to compressed PostScript versions that you can download. Unfortunately, thanks to the inadequacies of ghostview, many of these don't view particularly well, but they print out fine. If you have any problems with printing a chapter or would like a hardcopy version, please send me e-mail with your mailing address.
