—This paper proposes UFlood, a flooding protocol for wireless mesh networks. UFlood targets situations such as software updates where all nodes need to receive the same large file of data, and where limited radio range requires forwarding. UFlood's goals are high throughput and low airtime, defined respectively as rate of completion of a flood to the(More)
Breast cancer is the most deadly disease affecting women and thus it is natural for women aged 40-49 years (who have a family history of breast cancer or other related cancers) to assess their personal risk for developing familial breast cancer (FBC). Besides, as each individual woman possesses different levels of risk of developing breast cancer depending(More)

Sometimes Web sites fail in the worst ways. They can reveal private data that can never be retracted [60, 72, 78, 79]. Or they can succumb to vandalism, and subsequently show corrupt data to users [27]. Blame can fall on the off-the-shelf software that runs the site (e.g., the operating system, the application libraries, the Web server, etc.), but more(More)
BACKGROUND There is a growing demand for women to be classified into different risk groups of developing breast cancer (BC). The focus of the reported work is on the development of an integrated risk prediction model using a two-level fuzzy cognitive map (FCM) model. The proposed model combines the results of the initial screening mammogram of the given(More)
The detection of damage at an early stage that affects the supporting element of civil structures proves to be very significant to save invaluable human life and valuable possessions. In this research work, the severity of cracks in the supporting column is assessed using a new technique. This piece of research study uses the soft computing method of fuzzy(More)

Flooding in wireless mesh networks involves distributing some data from one node to rest of the nodes in the network. This dissertation proposes UFlood, a flooding protocol for wireless mesh networks that targets large file transfers, such as software updates, where achieving high throughput (minimizing the time to complete the flood to all nodes) and low(More)

There is a growing set of Internet-based services that are too big, or too important, to run at a single site. Examples include Web services for e-mail, video and image hosting, and social networking. Splitting such services over multiple sites can increase capacity, improve fault tolerance, and reduce network delays to clients. These services often need(More)
