Results from clinical studies suggest that more than half of the 166 million dental restorations that were placed in the United States in 2005 were replacements for failed restorations. This emphasis on replacement therapy is expected to grow as dentists use composite as opposed to dental amalgam to restore moderate to large posterior lesions. Composite(More)
The solution of chemical process simulation and optimization problems on today's high performance supercomputers requires algorithms that can take advantage of vector and parallel processing when solving the large, sparse matrices that arise. The frontal method can be highly e cient in this context due to its ability to make use of vectorizable dense matrix(More)
The solution of large-scale chemical process simulation and optimization problems using parallel computation requires algorithms that can take advantage of multiprocessing when solving the large, sparse matrices that arise. Parallel algorithms require that the matrices be partitioned in order to distribute computational work across processors. One way to(More)
The impact of light intensity on the degree of conversion (DC), rate of polymerization and network structure was investigated for hydrophobic and hydrophilic dental adhesive resins. Two and three component photoinitiating (PI) systems were used in this study. Low light intensities had a negative impact on the polymerization efficiency for the hydrophilic(More)
A detailed implementation of the Tabu Search (TS) algorithm for computer-aided molecular design (CAMD) of transition metal catalysts is presented in this paper. Previous CAMD research has applied deterministic methods or genetic algorithms to the solution of the optimization problems which arise from the search for a molecule satisfying a set of property(More)
Crosslinked polymers are important in a very wide range of applications including dental restorative materials. However, currently used polymeric materials experience limited durability in the clinical oral environment. Researchers in the dental polymer field have generally used a time-consuming experimental trial-and-error approach to the design of new(More)
A two-step computational method for designing new molecules in medicinal chemistry is described. In the first step, topological indices are used to develop structure-based correlations for properties of interest. Zeroth and first order connectivity indices are employed to develop linear correlations for three physical properties of interest in(More)
