— Outdoor camera networks are becoming ubiquitous in critical urban areas of large cities around the world. Although current applications of camera networks are mostly limited to video surveillance, recent research projects are exploiting advances on outdoor robotics technology to develop systems that put together networks of cameras and mobile robots in(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of right heart catheterization in the diagnosis of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). METHODS We evaluated clinical, functional, and hemodynamic data from all patients who underwent right heart catheterization because of diagnostic suspicion of PAH--in the absence of severe left ventricular dysfunction (LVD), significant(More)
BACKGROUND Pulmonary arterial hypertension is a progressive disease that is characterized by dyspnea and exercise intolerance. Impairment in skeletal muscle has recently been described in PAH, although the degree to which this impairment is solely determined by the hemodynamic profile remains uncertain. The aim of this study was to verify the association of(More)
One of the most important combinatorial optimization problems is graph coloring. There are several variations of this problem involving additional constraints either on vertices or edges. They constitute models for real applications, such as channel assignment in mobile wireless networks. In this work, we consider some coloring problems involving distance(More)
In this paper, constraint and integer programming formulations are applied to solve Bandwidth Coloring Problem (BCP) and Bandwidth Multicoloring Problem (BMCP). The problems are modeled using distance geometry (DG) approaches, which are then used to construct the constraint programming formulation. The integer programming formulation is based on a previous(More)
BACKGROUND Schistosomiasis associated pulmonary arterial hypertension (Sch-PAH) might represent the most prevalent form of PAH worldwide. In Sch-PAH, the presence of aneurismal dilation of the pulmonary artery has been described, although it is still a matter of debate whether on average the pulmonary artery is more enlarged in Sc-PAH than IPAH.
