A definition of synchronization of coupled dynamical systems is provided. We discuss how such a definition allows one to identify a unifying framework for synchronization of dynamical systems, and show how to encompass some of the different phenomena described so far in the context of synchronization of chaotic systems.
The efficacy of the second generation antihistamine ebastine has been investigated in the treatment and prevention of seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR). In a double-blind randomised study, patients treated with a single daily dose of ebastine 10mg (n = 116) for 2 weeks showed a significant improvement in symptoms of SAR compared with those treated with… (More)
Ensuring high reliability of large-scale clusters is becoming more critical as the size of these machines continues to grow, since this increases the complexity and amount of interactions between different nodes and thus results in a high failure frequency. For this reason, predicting node failures in order to prevent errors from happening in the first… (More)
Managing large systems in order to guarantee certain behavior is a difficult problem due to their dynamic behavior and complex interactions. Policies have been shown to provide a very expressive and easy way to define such desired behaviors, mainly because they separate the definition of desired behavior from the enforcement mechanism, allowing either one… (More)
The single cell gel electrophoresis assay is a sensitive, rapid, and visual technique for deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) strand-break detection in individual mammalian cells, whose application has significantly increased in the past few years. The cells are embedded in agarose on glass slides followed by lyses of the cell membrane. Thereafter, damaged DNA… (More)
OBJECTIVE Left ventricular noncompaction is a congenital malformation characterized by a myocardium organized into two layers, one compacted and one noncompacted. We aimed to quantify myocardial function, perfusion, and delayed enhancement using MRI in patients with left-ventricular noncompaction and to compare these results with those of normal patients.… (More)
INTRODUCTION Migraine may present with cranial autonomic symptoms typical of trigeminal-autonomic cephalalgias, thus posing diagnostic difficulties. AIM. To report a series of patients with prominent eyelid oedema associated with migraine. PATIENTS AND METHODS Ten patients attending the headache offices in three hospitals (nine women, one man; age: 26-53… (More)
