The R-MAT graph generator introduced by Chakrabarti, Faloutsos, and Zhan [6] offers a simple, fast method for generating very large directed graphs. These properties have made it a popular choice as a method of generating graphs for objects of study in a variety of disciplines, from social network analysis to high performance computing. We analyze the(More)
We describe using OpenMP to compute δ-hyperbolicity, a quantity of interest in social and information network analysis, at a scale that uses up to 1000 threads. By considering both OpenMP workshare and tasking models to parallelize the computations, we find that multiple task levels permits finer grained tasks at runtime and results in better performance at(More)
PURPOSE The hypothesis in the study was that androgens control meibomian gland function, regulate the quality and/or quantity of lipids produced by this tissue, and promote the formation of the tear film's lipid layer. To test this hypothesis, a study was conducted to determine whether androgen receptor protein exists in the epithelial cell nuclei of rat(More)
Our previous studies have shown that the mRNA levels of c-myb, c-myc, bcl-2 and p53 are higher, and partial Fas antigen (i.e. exons 1-2) lower, in lacrimal tissues of female, as compared to male, MRL/lpr mice, which are a model of Sjögren's syndrome. We have also found that this gender-related difference in bcl-2 and c-myb expression appears to be due to(More)
PURPOSE The current investigators have shown that androgen treatment suppresses inflammation and stimulates the function of lacrimal glands in mouse models of Sjögren's syndrome. Recently, others have hypothesized that androgen insufficiency induces an autoimmune process in lacrimal tissue, leading to inflammation, a Sjögren's syndrome-like pathology, and(More)
—Although large social and information networks are often thought of as having hierarchical or tree-like structure, this assumption is rarely tested. We have performed a detailed empirical analysis of the tree-like properties of realistic informatics graphs using two very different notions of tree-likeness: Gromov's δ-hyperbolicity, which is a notion from(More)

Recent work has established that large informatics graphs such as social and information networks have non-trivial tree-like structure when viewed at moderate size scales. Here, we present results from the first detailed empirical evaluation of the use of tree decomposition (TD) heuristics for structure identification and extraction in social graphs.(More)
