his paper focuses on the problem of implementing a distributed hash table (DHT) in wireless ad hoc networks. Scarceness of resources and node mobility turn routing into a challenging problem and therefore, we claim that building DHT as an overlay network (like in wired environments) is not the best option. Hence, we present a proof-of-concept DHT, called(More)
Intensive competition of intellectual property, easy development of agrochemical resistance, and stricter regulations of environmental concerns make the successful rate for agrochemical discovery extremely lower using traditional agrochemical discovery methods. Therefore, there is an urgent need to find a novel approach to guide agrochemical discovery with(More)
Experiments were carried out by reacting H(2) gas with N(2) hydrate at a temperature of 243 K and a pressure of 15 MPa. The characterizations of the reaction products indicated that multiple H(2) molecules can be loaded into both large and small cages of structure II clathrate hydrates. The realization of multiple H(2) occupancy of hydrate cages under(More)
Emerging ubiquitous computing needs "anytime and anywhere" network connections. Mobile ad hoc networks are well suited for this application area because they are self-organizing networks without depending on any network infrastructure. Due to the improved flexibility and reduced cost of mobile ad hoc networks, they promise to play an important role in(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of unified surgical scheme for wounds on the outcome of patients with extensive deep partial-thickness to full-thickness (briefly referred to as deep) burn. METHODS One hundred and thirty-seven patients with extensive deep burn hospitalized from July 2007 to November 2012 underwent unified surgery according to area of(More)
Natural gas hydrates are inclusion compounds composed of major light hydrocarbon gaseous molecules (CH4, C2H6, and C3H8) and a water clathrate framework. Understanding the phase stability and formation conditions of natural gas hydrates is crucial for their future exploitation and applications and requires an accurate description of intermolecular(More)
Mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is an autonomous system of mobile nodes connected by wireless links. Each node operates not only as an end system, but also as a router to forward packets. The nodes are free to move about and organize themselves into a network. These nodes change position frequently. The main classes of routing protocols are Proactive,(More)
