Among nonhuman primates, SIV-infected Asian pigtailed macaques (PM) are relatively more susceptible to infection and disease progression than SIV-infected rhesus macaques (RM). In addition, SIV-infected African natural hosts such as the sooty mangabeys (SM) are resistant to disease. The mechanisms associated with such species-related variable clinical(More)
Substantial concentrations of trace gases and aerosols are lofted and carried from Asia over the Pacific producing an inter-hemispheric impact on atmospheric chemistry and climate. The meteorological mechanism leading to this large-scale transport of dust and pollutants remains a major uncertainty in quantifying the global effects of emissions from the(More)
P hotonics involves the control of photons in free space or in matter. Manipulation of photons in semiconductor bulk crystals and thin films has culminated in breakthroughs such as LEDs and lasers. The continuing success of photonic technologies relies on the discovery of new optical materials and the miniaturization of optoelectronic devices that feature(More)
SUMMARY Eighty-seven patients with proven mitral leaflet prolapse were studied emphasizing cardiodynam-ics and left ventricular asynergy. Significant associated features were female preponderance (83%), skeletal anomalies (pectus excavatum, straight back, scoliosis, narrow antero-posterior diameter of the chest), and anomalous coronary arteries (corkscrew(More)
technical advance of this novel technology, there is no doubt that many exciting discoveries will be uncovered in the years to come, and the AFM will soon establish itself as one of the widely applied techniques in biomedical research. We have not yet reached the limit of its potential. I thank Prof. A. V. Somlyo and D. Czajkowsky for a critical reading of(More)

This paper proposes a new approach for cluster based routing algorithm for hybrid mobility model to regulating the vehicular traffic. Our approach uses a new hybrid mobility model combining randomwaypoint and group mobility model using static and dynamic sources and a novel cluster based routing algorithm. To transmit the real time updated information and(More)
The weighted quasi-variational inequalities over product of sets (for short, WQVIP) and system of weighted quasi-variational inequalities (for short, SWQVI) are introduced. It is shown that these two problems are equivalent. A relationship between SWQVI and system of vector quasi-variational inequalities is given. The concept of normalized solutions of(More)
The inherent ambiguity of sketch-based user interfaces makes the intention extraction process quite different from traditional user interfaces. It is a critical problem of how precise computers can efficiently understand and naturally tolerate ambiguous sketch-based interactions. This paper proposes incremental sketch understanding. Based on the cognitive(More)
