Asynchronous methods for solving systems of linear equations have been researched since Chazan and Miranker's [1969] pioneering paper on chaotic relaxation. The underlying idea of asynchronous methods is to avoid processor idle time by allowing the processors to continue to make progress even if not all progress made by other processors has been(More)
The scalability of a parallel algorithm on a parallel architecture is a measure of its capacity to effectively utilize an increasing number of processors. Scalability analysis may be used to select the best algorithm-architecture combination for a problem under diierent constraints on the growth of the problem size and the number of processors. It may be(More)
The Mouse Models of Human Cancers Consortium (MMHCC) is a collaborative program designed to derive and characterize mouse models of human malignancies. To enhance information and resource exchange among the MMHCC investigators and other cancer research scientists, the NCI Center for Bioinformatics (NCICB, http://ncicb.nci.nih.gov/) has developed web-based(More)
AIMS The purpose of this study was to compare open versus laparoscopic appendicectomy (LA) in complicated appendicitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS We prospectively analyzed all children over a 2-year period who underwent appendicectomy in a single institution and found 30 cases of complicated appendicitis diagnosed on the table and confirmed by histopathology.(More)
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) efficacy is related to optimal electrode placement. Several authors have quantified brain shift related to surgical targeting; yet, few reports document and discuss the effects of brain shift after insertion. Objective: To quantify brain shift and electrode displacement after device insertion. Twelve patients were(More)
