Thanks Alberto for the update. Actually I am investigating the calculations in R10 and my plan was to later cover R11 as well. Since still most of the systems are on R10 and in future also (atleast 2-3 years), I am very interested.

Having said that, your references and update will be very helpful. I just downloaded the stuff and reading :-)
