Behaviour can be a key component of animal population ecology yet the population consequences of behavioural decisions are poorly understood. We conducted a behavioural and demographic study of the bitterling Rhodeus sericeus, a freshwater fish that spawns in live unionid mussels. We used a population model incorporating game theory decisions and(More)
Two Department of Energy (DOE) office of Science's Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC) Frameworks, Algorithms, and Scalable Technologies for Mathematics (FASTMath) software packages, Parallel Unstructured Mesh Infrastructure (PUMI) and Partitioning using Mesh Adjacencies (ParMA), are presented.
The Parallel Unstructured Mesh Infrastructure (PUMI) is designed to support the representation of, and operations on, unstructured meshes as needed for the execution of mesh-based simulations on massively parallel computers. In PUMI, the mesh representation is <i>complete</i> in the sense of being able to provide any adjacency of mesh entities of multiple(More)
A controlled clinical trial is in progress to assess the value of hyperbaric oxygen and radiotherapy in the management of head and neck cancer. An established dose-fractionation schedule in hyperbaric oxygen is being compared with a widely used conventional schedule in air. Survival and local recurrence-free rates are significantly higher in the oxygen(More)
Specific absorption rate (SAR) and tissue temperature were measured for a total of 83 treatments in 33 patients who received local hyperthermia treatment for cancer. The patients were grouped into three categories according to tumor size. Hyperthermia was induced by 13.56 MHz electromagnetic energy applied using capacitive coupling. A method is described(More)
Partitioning unstructured meshes for parallel adaptive workflows running on leadership class systems requires the application of scalable partitioning tools that meet the needs of each workflow step. The combination of the (hyper)graph methods with two criteria partition improvement to hundreds of thousands of cores was previously presented [23, 51]. This(More)
Forty-three fit elderly patients with de novo acute myeloid leukemia (AML) received chemotherapy with mitoxantrone and intermediate dose cytarabine (MIDAC) in a phase II clinical trial conducted by the Australasian Leukaemia and Lymphoma Group. The main aim of the study was to evaluate the tolerability and efficacy of MIDAC in inducing durable remissions.(More)
We report the results of a prospective controlled trial of the effect of hyperbaric oxygen as an adjuvant in radiotherapy of head and neck cancer. Patients were allocated randomly to treatment in oxygen or air. The radiotherapy in both groups was identical in planning, dose, and fractionation--i.e., 3500 rads in 10 fractions in 3 weeks. There was no(More)
Two hundred and ninety-one patients with invasive carcinoma of the cervix uteri were treated by a combination of external beam therapy (telecobalt or 4 Mv Linear accelerator) and a high dose-rate afterloading intracavitary apparatus (the Cathetron). All patients have been followed for a minimum of 3 1/2 years. The five year survival rates are: all patients(More)
Synthetic biology seeks to enable programmed control of cellular behavior though engineered biological systems. These systems typically consist of synthetic circuits that function inside, and interact with, complex host cells possessing pre-existing metabolic and regulatory networks. Nevertheless, while designing systems, a simple well-defined interface(More)
