Recent work on parallel joins and data skew has concentrated on algorithm design without considering the causes and chara.cteristics of data. skew itself. Existming ana.lyt,ic models of skew do not cont.ain enough informat,ion to fully describe data skew in parallel implementations. Because the assumptions made about the nature of skew vary between authors,(More)
With the current interest in bipolar stimulation, there is a need for greater understanding of the electrical contributions of the two electrodes in this type of pacing. This has been investigated using a specially designed cell in which an electrode under test was immersed in a buffered saline solution (pH 7.42) at 37-38 degrees C. Four electrode types(More)
Investigation of the unipolar properties of the paced-evoked response requires special measures to eliminate the post-stimulus potential, and this in turn requires a knowledge of the properties of the electrode-tissue interface which is not supplied by any single source in the literature. We have therefore drawn together published information and some of(More)
