This paper describes a new, auto-adaptive algorithm for dead reckoning in DIS. In general dead-reckoning algorithms use a fixed threshold to control the extrapolation errors. Since a fixed threshold cannot adequately handle the dynamic relationships between moving entities, a multi-level threshold scheme is proposed. The definition of threshold levels is(More)
Echo planar imaging (EPI) is the MRI technique that is most widely used for blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) functional MRI (fMRI). Recent advances in EPI speed have been made possible with simultaneous multi-slice (SMS) methods which combine acceleration factors M from multiband (MB) radiofrequency pulses and S from simultaneous image refocusing (SIR)(More)
MMS features research articles that focus on the fundamental modeling and computational principles underlying various multiscale methods. Multiscale modeling is highly interdisciplinary, with developments occurring independently across fields. Research papers and survey articles that augment the fundamental ways we model and predict multiscale phenomena are(More)
PURPOSE Dstn(corn1) mice lack normal destrin expression and develop corneal abnormality shortly after birth such as epithelial hyperplasia and total vascularization. Thus, the mice serve as a model for ocular surface disorders. To determine the nature of epithelial defects, we examined whether epithelial homeostasis is altered in these corneas. METHODS(More)
The band-edge excitonic properties of AlN are investigated using low-temperature ͑1.7 K͒ optical reflectance and transmission measurements of samples with various crystal orientations. The A, B, and C excitons are found to have energies of 6.025, 6.243, and 6.257 eV in unstrained material, which shift with strain. The results are compared to a calculation(More)
