In this paper, we study parallel algorithms for private-cache chip multiprocessors (CMPs), focusing on methods for foundational problems that are scalable with the number of cores. By focusing on private-cache CMPs, we show that we can design efficient algorithms that need no additional assumptions about the way cores are interconnected, for we assume that(More)
A 31-year-old man with a history of congenital ventricular septal defect presented to the Emergency Department with 3 days of fever and palpitations. Four days earlier he sustained a dog bite to the left hand with localized swelling that rapidly resolved without additional signs of infection. No other source of fever was identified on history and physical(More)
The incidence of cysts in pregnancy was established with ultrasound. In 3,330 pregnant patients who underwent sonography, 38 adnexal cystic lesions (1.14%) were found. All but two cysts were discovered before 16 weeks. Follow-up showed that the majority of the cystic lesions resolved spontaneously; these were presumed to represent corpus luteum cysts. Five(More)
We present a distributed data structure, which we call the <i>rainbow skip graph</i>. To our knowledge, this is the first peer-to-peer data structure that simultaneously achieves high fault-tolerance, constant-sized nodes, and fast update and query times for ordered data. It is a non-trivial adaptation of the SkipNet/skip-graph structures of Harvey <i>et(More)

A case of meningeal sarcoma arising at the site of a prior subdural hematoma and mimicking an acute subdural hematoma on noncontrast CT is presented. The potential confusion between a hyperdense, nonhemorrhagic lesion and a hematoma on CT is highlighted. This report also reviews the possible relationship between meningeal injury and subsequent neoplastic(More)
Ten patients with radicular leg pain are reported in whom good quality myelograms were either normal or non-diagnostic of a disc or tumor. Subsequent CT examination demonstrated herniated discs (eight patients) or tumors (two patients) in the intervertebral foramen, all located too far laterally to be seen with myelography.
Three acetotrophicMethanosarcina species, which included marine, nonmarine, and thermophilic strains, were grown on acetate in a 10-liter pH auxostat. Specific growth rates and molar growth yields were constant throughout growth. Cell yields were up to 18-fold greater than previously reported. These properties of the pH auxostat indicate that it is a(More)
The differential diagnosis of left lower quadrant abdominal pain in an adult man includes, among others, sigmoid diverticulitis; leaking abdominal aortic aneurysm; renal colic; epididymitis; incarcerated hernia; bowel obstruction; regional enteritis; psoas abscess; and in this rare instance, situs inversus with acute appendicitis. We report a case of situs(More)
OBJECTIVE If there is a significant dichotomy between bilateral systolic blood pressure determinations in both arms in hypertensive individuals, it is often taken as a sign of underlying pathology. The primary objective was to determine what the normal variation might be for a significant difference between blood pressures in both arms. A clinically(More)
