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)
In This work we present a thorough study of the topological properties of the Gnutella network, which provides insight into the nature of the underlying system, helps us design high performance algorithms and generates more realistic topologies for simulation experiments. We compare two theoretical models of growing networks with the present real data of(More)
With explosively increasing information, data mining techniques are frequently employed to identify trends in the warehouse that may not be readily apparent. In this paper we apply fuzzy data mining techniques to a security system and build a fuzzy data mining based intrusion detection model. Through normalizing the data set and building a fuzzy similar(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)
Lizard fish (Saurida elongata) muscle protein was hydrolyzed using neutral protease to produce protein hydrolysate (LFPH), and the hydrolysis conditions were investigated using response-surface methodology. The optimum conditions for producing peptides with the highest angiotensin-I converting enzyme (ACE)-inhibitory activity were the following:(More)
BACKGROUND In China, heat-sensitive moxibustion (HSM) is used for knee osteoarthritis (KOA) to reduce pain and improve physical activity. However, there is little high-quality evidence of its effectiveness. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effectiveness of HSM in the treatment of KOA compared with usual care. METHODS We performed a multicentre, randomised(More)
