Survival data of 114 patients treated for malignant brain tumors with 125I interstitial radiation therapy at Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, Mich. (1986-1990), are presented. The first 64 patients were treated with temporary 125I implants with a total prescribed dose of 60 Gy at a dose rate of 40 cGy/h. In order to reduce the risk of injury to the surrounding(More)
We develop a conservative, second order accurate fully implicit discretization in two dimensions of the Navier-Stokes NS and Cahn-Hilliard CH system that has an associated discrete energy functional. This system provides a diffuse-interface description of binary fluid flows with compressible or incompressible flow components [44,4]. In this work, we focus(More)
The in vitro growth of pre-osteoblasts in multi-layer, three-dimensional scaffolds was determined from experimental measurements and was compared to a mathematical model. Immediately following cell seeding, the initial cell density was uniform throughout the scaffold. After 10 days, the cell density increased from 2.1 x 10(5) cells/cm(3) to 1.3 x 10(7)(More)
We present efficient, second-order accurate and adaptive finite-difference methods to solve the regularized, strongly anisotropic Cahn–Hilliard equation in 2D and 3D. When the surface energy anisotropy is sufficiently strong, there are missing orientations in the equilibrium level curves of the diffuse interface solutions, corresponding to those missing(More)
SUMMARY Developing an adaptive 3-dimensional (3D) topology control algorithm is important because most wireless nodes are mobile and deployed in buildings. Moreover, in buildings, wireless link qualities and topologies change frequently due to various objects and the interference from other wireless devices. Previous topology control algorithms can suffer(More)
Fully printed transistors are a key component of ubiquitous flexible electronics. In this work, the advantages of an inverse gravure printing technique and the solution processing of semiconductor-enriched single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) are combined to fabricate fully printed thin-film transistors on mechanically flexible substrates. The fully(More)
— The topology control technique can prolong the network lifetime, but it can suffer the significant performance degradation due to the interferences of WLAN or Bluetooth devices. This paper proposes an interference-aware topology control algorithm to reduce the interference effects. The basic idea of the proposed algorithm is to estimate the interference(More)
