This paper describes vCUDA, a GPGPU (General Purpose Graphics Processing Unit) computing solution for virtual machines. vCUDA allows applications executing within virtual machines (VMs) to leverage hardware acceleration, which can be beneficial to the performance of a class of high performance computing (HPC) applications. The key idea in our design is: API(More)
—In ad hoc wireless networks, to compute the transmission power of each wireless node such that the resulting network is connected and the total energy consumption is minimized is defined as a Minimum Energy Network Connectivity (MENC) problem, which is an NP-complete problem. In this paper, we consider the approximated solutions for the MENC problem in ad(More)
BACKGROUND Potential functional allele A/T single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of Interleukin 8 (IL-8) promoter -251 has been implicated in gastric cancer risk. METHODS We aimed to explore the role of A/T SNP of IL-8 -251 in the susceptibility to gastric cancer through a systematic review and meta-analysis. Each initially included article was scored for(More)
Parallelizing HTML parsing is challenging due to the complexities of HTML documents and the inherent dependencies in its parsing algorithm. As a result, despite numerous studies in parallel parsing, HTML parsing remains sequential today. It forms one of the final barriers for fully parallelizing browser operations to minimize the browser’s response(More)
In a Cloud system, a number of services are often deployed with each service being hosted by a collection of Virtual Machines (VM). The services may interact with each other and the interaction patterns may be dynamic, varying according to the system information at runtime. These impose a challenge in determining the amount of resources required to deliver(More)
This paper addresses the problem of broadcasting and multicasting in large scale multihop ad hoc wireless networks. We focus on the energy-efficient broadcast routing in stationary networks and consider the case where wireless nodes can dynamically control their transmission power for each broadcast session. Minimum spanning tree (MST) has the property that(More)
