We propose a modified version of the chaotic cryptographic method based on iterating a logistic map. Simulation results show that the distribution of the ciphertext is flatter and the encryption time is shorter. Moreover, the trade-off between the spread of the distribution of ciphertext and the encryption time can be controlled by a single parameter. (More)
Although various types of treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) have been tried, the prognosis remains dismal, especially in patients with advanced stage of the disease. Somatostatin analogues exert antitumor effects. HCC have been shown to exhibit somatostatin receptors. The present randomized placebo-controlled study aimed at examining the efficacy(More)
Cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) is an effective treatment for patients with congestive heart failure and a wide QRS complex. However, up to 30% of patients are non-responders to therapy in terms of exercise capacity or left ventricular reverse remodelling. A number of controversies still remain surrounding patient selection, targeted lead(More)
1. Excitatory post-synaptic potentials (e.p.s.p.s) were evoked in cat spinal motoneurones by impulses in single group Ia afferent fibres. The probability density of the fluctuations in peak amplitude of each e.p.s.p. was calculated from the recorded peak amplitude and the probability density of the recording noise. 2. Most e.p.s.p.s fluctuated between(More)
1. Excitatory post-synaptic potentials (e.p.s.p.s) were evoked in spinal alpha-motoneurones of the cat by impulses in single group Ia nerve fibres. 2. The average peak amplitude of some of these e.p.s.p.s was increased by a conditioning tetanus. The maximum increase observed was 54% of the control amplitude. 3. The average peak amplitude of some e.p.s.p.s(More)
1. The average amplitude of e.p.s.p.s evoked in cat spinal motoneurones by impulses in single group Ia afferents usually increased following the intravenous injection of 4-aminopyridine (4-AP). Most of this increase occurred over the first 30 min following injection of 4-AP. 2. The increase in the average amplitude following 4-AP occurred by a reduction in(More)
This paper describes our effort to enhance the performance of the AORSA fusion energy simulation program through the use of High Performance LINPACK (HPL) benchmark, commonly used in ranking the top 500 supercomputers. The algorithm used by HPL, enhanced by a set of tuning options, is more effective than that found in the ScaLAPACK library. Retrofitting(More)
Analysis of fluctuations in the amplitude of evoked synaptic potentials can be severely handicapped by the presence of spontaneous synaptic potentials and recording noise. A numerical procedure has been described whereby it is possible to remove some of the masking effects of this noise from the underlying distribution of the fluctuating synaptic(More)
