    Significance: A polynomial algorithm to find best time and path(i.e. earliest completion, shortest duration criteria) between two end-hosts in a dynamic network topology, where bandwidth is time dependent. Flexible reservations are analogous to reserving airline flights in which multiple options and lower fares are offered if traveler can be flexible with dates and time]
