Complex networks have attracted a large amount of research attention, especially over the past decade, due to their prevalence and importance in our daily lives. Numerous human-designed models have been proposed that aim to capture and model different network structures, for the purpose of improving our understanding the real-life phenomena and its dynamics(More)
—Complex networks are becoming an integral tool for our understanding of an enormous variety of natural and artificial systems. A number of human-designed network generation procedures have been proposed that reasonably model specific real-life phenomena in structure and dynamics. Consequently, breakthroughs in genetics, medicine, epidemiology,(More)
STUDY DESIGN A basic science animal investigation. OBJECTIVES To determine if bipedal rats differ in upright posture compared with quadrupedal rats. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA It has been reported that surgically induced bipedalism in the rat leads to habitual upright posture. Based on this finding, bipedal rats have been used to study the changes erect(More)
Efficient network design and optimization of transportation and distribution systems has significant economic and service efficiency implications for both the public and private sectors. We propose a new solution based on a particle swarm optimization (PSO) for the uncapacitated single allocation hub location problem (USAHLP). Although various(More)
Thirty-three cadaveric dissections were performed to identify radial nerve branching patterns to the triceps brachii. Radial innervation of the long head of the triceps originated in the axilla in 88% of the cases and the brachio-axillary angle in 12%. Innervation of the medial head of the triceps originated in the spiral groove in 52% of the cases, the(More)
The pathways that relay sensory information within the brain form a network of connections, the precise organization of which is unknown. Communities of neurons can be discerned within this tangled structure, with inhomogeneously distributed connections existing between cortical areas. Classification and modelling of these networks has led to advancements(More)
Separated spacecraft interferometry missions will require spacecraft to move in a coordinated fashion to ensure minimal and balanced consumption of fuel. This paper develops strategies for determining interferometry mission plans that result in signiicant fuel savings over standard approaches. Simulation results demonstrate that valuable reductions in fuel(More)
INTRODUCTION Treatment of low-back pain using Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) has been historically challenging. Advances in surgical leads and programming capabilities have been thought to potentially enable improved low-back pain relief using SCS. A recently introduced 32-contact surgical lead, which couples multiple independent current control (MICC) and(More)
