BACKGROUND The burden of dengue in Africa is not well understood. A prospective study was conducted in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire from December 2011 to December 2012 to estimate the proportion of dengue and malaria cases among febrile patients during a period when dengue was not known to be circulating in the region, and to describe the clinical and virological… (More)
Adult females An. gambiae were exposed in 3 min cone test to treated nets with PPF before or after they were blood fed. The effects of PPF on ovaries development, females oviposition and eggs hatching were assessed. Both unfed and fed mosquitoes exposed to PPF exhibited nearly complete inhibition of fecundity (70-100%) and fertility (90-100%). After females… (More)
In this paper, we focus on the use of discrete geometry for the sake of real-time modeling and analysis. We consider multiproces-sor context, and we determine the geometrical characterization of PFair scheduling algorithms, which are known to be very performant strategies. A feasability test can then be deduced from the geometrical properties.
