—We give an explicit construction of exact cooperative regenerating codes at the MBCR (minimum bandwidth cooperative regeneration) point. Before the paper, the only known explicit MBCR code is given with parameters n = d+r and d = k, while our construction applies to all possible values of n, k, d, r. The code has a brief expression in the polynomial form(More)
—The ith coordinate of an (n, k) code is said to have locality r and availability t if there exist t disjoint groups, each containing at most r other coordinates that can together recover the value of the ith coordinate. This property is particularly useful for codes for distributed storage systems because it permits local repair and parallel accesses of(More)
The locally repairable code (LRC) studied in this paper is an [n, k] linear code of which the value at each coordinate can be recovered by a linear combination of at most r other coordinates. The central problem in this work is to determine the largest possible minimum distance for LRCs. First, an integer programming based upper bound is derived for any(More)
In distributed storage systems, erasure codes with locality r is preferred because a coordinate can be recovered by accessing at most r other coordinates which in turn greatly reduces the disk I/O complexity for small r. However, the local repair may be ineffective when some of the r coordinates accessed for recovery are also erased. To overcome this(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficiency of predicting radiation induced liver disease (RILD) with an artificial neural network (ANN) model. METHODS AND MATERIALS From August 2000 to November 2004, a total of 93 primary liver carcinoma (PLC) patients with single lesion and associated with hepatic cirrhosis of Child-Pugh grade A, were treated with(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the influence of bizhongxiao decoction (BZXD) which is a Traditional Chinese medicine for RA including, on the plasma TNF-α and IL-1β in rats with CII-induced arthritis (CIA) and explore the protective mechanism of BZXD in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. METHODS 75 SD rats were divided into four groups randomly. Normal(More)
