McKusick-Kaufman syndrome (MKS) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by post-axial polydactyly, congenital heart defects and hydrometrocolpos, a congenital structural abnormality of female genitalia. Mutations in the MKKS gene have also been shown to cause some cases of Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) which is characterized by obesity, pigmentary(More)
Practical laser speckle contrast analysis systems face a problem of spatial averaging of speckles, due to the pixel size in the cameras used. Existing practice is to use a system factor in speckle contrast analysis to account for spatial averaging. The linearity of the system factor correction has not previously been confirmed. The problem of spatial(More)

Abstract In the first part of this thesis we consider the defocusing nonlinear wave equation of power-type on R 3. We establish an almost sure global(More)
Short vector instructions (SIMD) can significantly increase performance, yet are difficult to use effectively. Recently, several efforts (ATLAS, FFTW, SPIRAL) have successfully used automated performance tuning and search to find good SIMD implementations of high-performance kernels such as matrix multiplication, the FFT and related transforms. In this(More)
