West Nile Virus (WNV) is a mosquito-borne flavivirus that was introduced into the U.S. in the New York City area in 1999. Despite its successful establishment and rapid spread in a naive environment, WNV has undergone limited evolution since its introduction. This evolutionary stability has been attributed to compromises made to permit alternating cycles of(More)
Dendritic cells (DC) are believed to contribute to development of autoimmune sialadenitis, but little is known about their distribution in normal salivary glands. In this study, DC were identified and their distribution was determined in normal human parotid and submandibular glands. For light microscopy, salivary gland sections were stained with H&E or(More)
High Performance Computing (HPC) is playing an important role in a variety of domains with the demand of high-level computational capacity. Besides, HPC provides services for a huge range of different users as well as multiple environments. Hence, the performance of the network is also one of the important criteria. The advent of InfiniBand (IB) aims at the(More)
We prove the existence of nondecreasing sequences of positive eigen-values of the homogeneous degenerate quasilinear eigenvalue problem − div(a(x)|∇u| p−2 ∇u) = λb(x)|u| p−2 u, λ > 0 with Dirichlet boundary condition on a bounded domain Ω. The diffusion coefficient a(x) is a function in L 1 loc (Ω) and b(x) is a nontrivial function in L r (Ω) (r depending(More)
Software-defined networking (SDN) has recently generated considerable interest among researchers as a next generation network architecture that can overcome the limitations of the traditional network. Intrusion detection and prevention system (IDPS) can leverage the SDN approach to achieve lots of great benefits. The specialized hardware or software for(More)
In this paper, in order to solve an elliptic partial differential equation with a nonlin-ear boundary condition for multiple solutions, the authors combine a minimax approach with a boundary integral-boundary element method, and identify a subspace and its special expression so that all numerical computation and analysis can be carried out more efficiently(More)
— Synthesized from hydrothermal conditions, α'-BaFeF 5 crystallizes in the monoclinic system, space group P2 1 /n, Z = 8 with a = 9.532(1) Å, b = 7.901(1) Å, c = 11.398(1) Å and β = 93.45(1)°. The structure is determined from 2721 independent reflections and refined up to the residuals R = 0.022 and R w = 0.024. It is the second crystal structure-type built(More)
