—Multi-Sensor health monitoring systems are used to predict near future events of our health system. Each sensor generates humongous amount of data per second and needs to be processed in real-time. At the same time health monitoring systems are battery operated, thus they have rigid constraints on power and area of processing platform. Additionally, health(More)
Despite many prospective and retrospective studies about the association of dietary habit and lung cancer, the topic still remains controversial. So, this study aims to investigate the association of lung cancer with dietary factors. In this study 242 lung cancer patients and their 484 matched controls on age, sex, and place of residence were enrolled(More)
BACKGROUND In this research, the removal of natural organic matter from aqueous solutions using advanced oxidation processes (UV/H2O2) was evaluated. Therefore, the response surface methodology and Box-Behnken design matrix were employed to design the experiments and to determine the optimal conditions. The effects of various parameters such as initial(More)
We present a formalized, fully decentralized runtime semantics for a core subset of ABS, a language and framework for modelling distributed object-oriented systems. The semantics incorporates an abstract graph representation of a network infrastructure, with network endpoints represented as graph nodes, and links as arcs with buffers, corresponding to OSI(More)
—There was a lot of interest in multicast communications within this decade as it is an essential part of many network applications, e.g. video-on-demand, etc. In this paper, we model flow rate allocation for application overlay as a utility based optimization problem constrained by capacity limitations of physical links and overlay constraints. The(More)
—The four V's in Big data sets, Volume, Velocity, Variety, and Veracity, provides challenges in many different aspects of real-time systems. Out of these areas securing big data sets, reduction in processing time and communication bandwidth are of utmost importance. In this paper we adopt Compressive Sensing (CS) based framework to address all three issues.(More)
In this study vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (VA-CNT) was grown on anodized aluminum oxide (AAO) substrate. The synthesized AAO-CNT membrane was characterized using Raman spectroscopy, field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), contact angle and BET. The pure water flux, humic acid (HA) (as representative of natural organic matters) rejection(More)
BACKGROUND Nowadays, study and application of modified membranes for water treatment have been considered significantly. The aim of this study was to prepare and characterize a polysulfone (PSF)/graphene oxide (GO) nanocomposite membrane and to evaluate for arsenate rejection from water. MATERIALS AND METHODS The nanocomposite PSF/GO membrane was(More)
