We propose a novel formulation of the firing squad synchronization problem. In this formulation we may use more than one general state and the general state to be used is determined by the boundaryâ€¦ (More)

The following fictional case is intended as a learning tool within the Pathology Competencies for Medical Education (PCME), a set of national standards for teaching pathology. These are divided intoâ€¦ (More)

In their seminal work on Go With the Winners (GWW) algorithms, D. Aldous and U. Vazirani [3] proved a sufficient condition for the number of particles needed for reaching the bottom of a tree withâ€¦ (More)

The goal of this work is to show that if a minimal-time solution exists for a fundamental computation primitive, synchronizing networks of finite-state processors (formally known as the firing squadâ€¦ (More)

Rigid adherence to generic models of integration often fails because healthcare executives and physicians have not laid a proper foundation for integration. A series of building blocks must be inâ€¦ (More)

We introduce a novel term, memory-adaptive, that intuitively captures what it means for a distributed protocol to most efficiently make use of its shared memory. We also prove three results thatâ€¦ (More)

Physician equity alliances are becoming attractive alternatives to PHOs as integrative models for partnering with physicians, securing managed care contracts and increasing revenue. Unlike many PHOs,â€¦ (More)

We consider several problems relating to strongly-connected <i>directed</i> networks of identical finite-state processors that work synchronously in discrete time steps. The conceptually simplest ofâ€¦ (More)
