—This paper describes vCUDA, a general-purpose graphics processing unit (GPGPU) computing solution for virtual machines (VMs). vCUDA allows applications executing within VMs to leverage hardware acceleration, which can be beneficial to the performance of a class of high-performance computing (HPC) applications. The key insights in our design include 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)
—There are two steps to establish a multicast connection in WDM networks: routing and wavelength assignment. Shortest path tree (SPT) and Minimum spanning tree (MST) are the two widely used multicast routing methods. The SPT method minimizes the delay from the source to every destination along a routing tree, and the MST method is often used to minimize the(More)
