Given the explosion of research on induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, it is timely to consider the various ethical, legal, and social issues engaged by this fast-moving field. Here, we review issues associated with the procurement, basic research, and clinical translation of iPS cells.
Particle tracing in time-varying flow fields is traditionally performed by numerical integration of the underlying vector field. This procedure can become computationally expensive, especially in scattered, particle-based flow fields, which complicate interpolation due to the lack of an explicit neighborhood structure. If such a particle-based flow field… (More)
We present a new method for procedurally generating window lighting and building interior effects for real-time rendering of city scenes. Our method can selectively light a random subset of windows on the building with varying color and brightness. This window light can be combined with cube maps of representative building interior (i.e. interior maps) to… (More)
Internet traffic from mobile devices surpassed traffic from traditional desktop PCs for the first time in 2014. Although users today access and experience digital services through multiple mobile and traditional devices simultaneously, little empirical research investigated the mechanisms driving this shift, or its implications for service innovation… (More)
Introduction The SPH plugin uses COVISE's virtual reality software OpenCOVER to view data from SPH simulations of galaxy and star formation. This project is a continuation of a previous MURPA project by Andrew Paterson who built many of the features of the plugin. New additions to the plugin include a column density mode to view the data as an integral… (More)
