In this paper we present the utilization bound for Earliest Deadline First (EDF) scheduling on homogeneous mul-tiprocessor systems with partitioning strategies. Assuming that tasks are pre-emptively scheduled on each processor according to the EDF algorithm, and allocated according to the First Fit (FF) heuristic, we prove that the worst-case achievable(More)
There has been little long-term success with polytherapy for patients with refractory partial-onset epilepsy. The rational combination of antiepileptic drugs based on their mechanism of action may help improve treatment efficacy and tolerability. Lacosamide, a novel sodium channel blocker (SCB), was investigated in 158 patients with partial-onset epilepsy(More)
In this paper we extend Liu & Layland's utilization bound for fixed priority scheduling on uniprocessors to homogeneous multiprocessor systems under a partitioning strategy. Assuming that tasks are pre-emptively scheduled on each processor according to fixed priorities assigned by the Rate-Monotonic policy, and allocated to processors by the First Fit(More)
Since 2009, the incidence of human leishmaniosis in the SW of the Madrid region has been unusually high. Although dogs are the main reservoir for this disease, a role played by dogs in this outbreak has been ruled out and investigators are now considering other hosts (eg. cats, rabbits, hares) as possible alternative reservoirs. This study was designed to(More)
