An ad hoc grid is a heterogeneous computing and communication system without a fixed infrastructure; all of its components are mobile. Energy management is a major concern in an ad hoc grid. One important aspect of energy management is to minimize the energy consumption during a mission. In an ad hoc grid, communication and computations are deeply(More)
An ad hoc grid is a heterogeneous computing system composed of mobile devices. Each computing resource is constrained in battery energy. The problem being studied is to assign statically computing resources to the subtasks of an application that has an execution time constraint, when the resources are oversubscribed. All subtasks must be executed; to(More)
—An ad hoc grid is a heterogeneous computing system composed of mobile devices. The problem studied here is to statically assign resources to the subtasks of an application, which has an execution time constraint, when the resources are oversubscribed. Each subtask has a preferred version, and a secondary version that uses fewer resources. The goal is to(More)
The 8-aminoquinoline drug primaquine (PQ) is currently the only drug in use against the persistent malaria caused by the hypnozoite-forming strains P. vivax and P. ovale. However, despite decades of research, its complete metabolic profile is still poorly understood. In the present study, the metabolism of PQ was evaluated by incubating the drug with pooled(More)
