The last decade has witnessed a tremendous increase in the popularity of mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). The major computing challenges of distributed environment become more insidious when we try to address them in mobile ad hoc scenario. The distributed mutual exclusion (DMX) is one of the heavily researched topics of distributed computing. Although, a… (More)
This paper presents a model for traffic volume prediction which can be effectively used for transportation planning, management and security assessment at any time. Fuzzy logic is applied in order to realize effective and efficient traffic prediction. In this paper, 'day' of a week and 'time' of a day are taken as inputs for proposed… (More)
Filtering is always the root process in many medical image processing applications. It is aimed at reducing noise in images. Any post-processing tasks, e.g., visualization, segmentation may benefit from the reduction of noise. Bilateral filtering smoothes images while preserving edges, by means of a nonlinear combination of nearby image values. This method… (More)
Cardiomyopathy is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). Early recognition of myocardial involvement and initiation of therapy are important for improved outcomes. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) is a sensitive tool in early detection of myocardial fibrosis in these children.
—Resource sharing is a major advantage of distributed computing. However, a distributed computing system may have some physical or virtual resource that may be accessible by a single process at a time. The mutual exclusion issue is to ensure that no more than one process at a time is allowed to access some shared resource. The article proposes a token-based… (More)
Shallow-ablation of endometrial lining using microwaves has been traditionally indicated as a minimally invasive treatment option for dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB). Known as microwave endometrial ablation (MEA), relevant procedure is used as an alternative to hysterectomy considering its safety, simplicity and effectiveness. In lieu of the prevailing… (More)
