MSC: 65Z05 65C05 82C20 Keywords: Monte Carlo simulation GPU computing Ising model Phase transition Finite size scaling a b s t r a c t The compute unified device architecture (CUDA) is a programming approach for performing scientific calculations on a graphics processing unit (GPU) as a data-parallel computing device. The programming interface allows to(More)
Survivors of traumatic brain injury often have long-term sensory, cognitive and motor deficits that may impair vehicle operation. However, relatively little is known about the driving status and driving characteristics of brain injury survivors. To better understand driving following traumatic brain injury, a survey of driving status, driving exposure,(More)
For an intriguing variety of switching processes in nature, the underlying complex system abruptly changes from one state to another in a highly discontinuous fashion. Financial market fluctuations are characterized by many abrupt switchings creating upward trends and downward trends, on time scales ranging from macroscopic trends persisting for hundreds of(More)
Mitochondrial heat shock protein 70 (mtHsp70), an important mitochondrial chaperone, is increased in cardiac muscle mitochondria of hyperthyroid rats. To determine the mechanism(s) underlying this increase, we used variations in thyroid status. In Series I, rats were made hyperthyroid by injecting them with 3,3', 5-triiodo-l-thyronine (T(3)) for 5 days, or(More)
Simulated Annealing has become a standard optimization technique for a wide variety of problems: starting at a random configuration and performing a sequence of moves, the system is optimized using a control parameter which partially allows for accepting a deterioration and therefore for climbing over barriers in the energy landscape. Our approach, Weight(More)
Envy is a rather complex and irrational emotion. In general, it is very difficult to obtain a measure of this feeling, but in an economical context envy becomes an observable which can be measured. When various individuals compare their possessions , envy arises due to the inequality of their different allocations of commodities and different preferences.(More)
We investigate several variants of a network creation model: a group of agents builds up a network between them while trying to keep the costs of this network small. The cost function consists of two addends, namely (i) a constant amount for each edge an agent buys and (ii) the minimum number of hops it takes sending messages to other agents. Despite the(More)
