Floyd, S., Jacobson, V., Liu, C., McCanne, S., and Zhang, L., A Reliable Multicast Framework for Light-weight Sessions and Application Level Framing, IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, December 1997, Volume 5, Number 6, pp. 784-803.
(This paper is available on-line as compressed Postscript or PDF. This 20-page paper is a mildly-shortened version of the 24-page draft dated November 1996.)

The older November 1995 tech report contains some additional material. An earlier version of this paper appeared in ACM SIGCOMM 95, August 1995, pp. 342-356.

Simulation scripts:
The simulations for this paper were not run on the NS simulator, but on a separate simulator that I wrote for this purpose, that I never made publically available. Thus, the scripts for running the simulations in this paper are also not publically available. However, SRM functionality has now been added to NS.
