BACKGROUND As part of a major re-examination of its organization, in 2004, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) assessed the evidence base for the effectiveness of population-based public health intervention programs. METHODS For the leading causes of disease, injury, and disability, evidence was systematically reviewed for modifiable risk(More)

BACKGROUND The relationship between domestic funding for selected conditions to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the burden of disease and disability in the United States was assessed systematically. METHODS Using mortality, years of potential life lost (YPLLs), disability-adjusted life years (DALYs), hospital days, hospital(More)

In supplement to an earlier paper, we present an altered cost functional for the computation of an edge-preserving optical flow that is invariant to rotation. In addition, we explain how the solutions to the resulting non-linear partial differential equations may be computed more efficiently with non-linear multigrid techniques. We prove the rotational(More)
