Evidence suggests that flavonoid-containing diets reduce cardiovascular risk, but the mechanisms responsible are unclear. In the present study, we sought to determine the effect of flavanol-rich cocoa on vascular function in individuals with CAD (coronary artery disease). Forty subjects (61+/-8 years; 30 male) with CAD were recruited to a 6-week randomized(More)
We introduce the Generalized Bin Packing Problem, a new packing problem where, given a set of items characterized by volume and profit and a set of bins with given volume and cost, one aims to select the subsets of profitable items and appropriate bins to optimize an objective function which combines the cost of the used bins and the profit derived by(More)
In this paper we introduce a new Packing problem, the Three-Dimensional Knapsack Problem with Balancing Constraints (3BKP), the extension of the Three-Dimensional Knapsack Problem (3KP) where additional constraints related to the packing center of mass are given. The 3BKP consists in orthogonally packing a subset of three-dimensional weighted items into a(More)

The problem consists in finding a transshipment facility location which minimizes the expected total cost when the generalized transportation costs are random variables. The optimal location must satisfy supply, demand, and lower and upper capacity constraints. Each generalized transportation cost is given by a deterministic transportation cost from an(More)

BACKGROUND Patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) have been shown to have a local increase in culprit lesion temperature of at least 0.5 degrees Celcius using a specialized thermography catheter. However, this device is unique, not clinically available and unable to provide information other than temperature. The 0.014-inch Radi PressureWire XT (RPW)(More)
