Prognostic techniques are intricately tied to the physics of incipient-fault-to-failure progression, and hence most prognostics research has focused on developing techniques for a range of components such as rotating machinery parts. The research and development of such techniques has relied on the theories of material science, structural mechanics, domain(More)
Extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (CC) is an aggressive malignancy with dismal prognosis and characterized by early invasion, metastasis and postoperative recurrence. Therefore, understanding the main molecular mechanisms of this malignancy is the key for the development of novel and effective therapeutic strategies for extrahepatic CC. Foxj2 is a novel(More)
This paper presents a library of algorithms to solve a broad range of optimization problems arising in the normative design of organizations to execute a specific mission. The use of specific optimization algorithms for different phases of the design process leads to an efficient matching between the mission structure and that of an organization and its(More)
Key management is at the heart of securing wireless sensor networks. Exclusion Basis Systems (EBS) is a combinatorial framework for group key management. It is secure and efficient for dynamic key management; however it could not resist collusion attack. A novel scheme combining EBS with broadcasting polynomial, LEP was proposed to solve this problem.(More)
A key concept in congruent organizational design is the so-called Strategic Grouping, which involves the aggregation of task functions, positions, and assets into units. Group technology has emerged as a manufacturing philosophy for improving productivity in batch production systems, while retaining the flexibility of a job shop production. In this paper,(More)
