We analyze a class of Generalized Two-Ray (GTR) fading channels that consist of two line of sight (LOS) components with random phase plus a diffuse component. We derive a closedform expression for the moment generating function (MGF) of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for this model, which greatly simplifies its analysis. This expression arises from the(More)
MOTIVATION Recent advancements in sequencing technology have led to a drastic reduction in the cost of sequencing a genome. This has generated an unprecedented amount of genomic data that must be stored, processed and transmitted. To facilitate this effort, we propose a new lossy compressor for the quality values presented in genomic data files (e.g. FASTQ(More)
Cyclooxygenase (COX) is the rate-limiting enzyme in the synthesis of prostaglandins. It exists in two isoforms: COX-1 which is constitutively expressed and COX-2 which is an inducible form activated by a variety of cytokines during inflammation. Interest in this enzyme arose in the early 1990s when, following epidemiological studies, aspirin (which is a COX(More)
The Two Wave with Diffuse Power (TWDP) fading model was proposed by Durgin, Rappaport and de Wolf as a generalization of the Rayleigh and Rician fading models. This model can characterize a large range of fading behavior and has a geometric justification in terms of two dominant line of sight components in the presence of a diffuse component. The fact that(More)
Wind power producers (WPPs) that sell power in forward power markets would like to minimize their operating costs which increase with generation uncertainty. In this work, the value of energy storage for reducing such costs is studied. In particular, profit maximization is considered for a WPP who participates in a two-settlement (forward and real time)(More)
We consider a wind power producer (WPP) participating in a dynamically evolving two settlement power market. We study the utility of energy storage for a WPP in maximizing its expected profit. With random wind and price processes, the optimal forward contract and storage charging/discharging decisions are formulated as solutions of an infinite horizon(More)

PURPOSE Managing severe sepsis early has several benefits. Correct early management includes delivering an appropriate fluid challenge. The purpose of this paper is to assess whether junior doctors prescribe adequate fluid challenges to severely septic patients.
