This series publishes advanced monographs giving well-written presentations of the "state-of-the-art" in fields of mathematical research that have acquired the maturity needed for such a treatment. They are sufficiently self-contained to be accessible to more than just the intimate specialists of the subject, and sufficiently comprehensive to remain(More)
The possibility that the degeneration of hippocampal neurons can be caused by mis-regulation of Wnt/β-catenin signaling was tested. Downregulation of Wnt signaling by the inducible expression of Axin, ICAT, and dnTcf4E causes degeneration of hippocampal neurons, while upregulation of Wnt signaling by the inducible expression of Dvl and β-catenin has a(More)
Asynchronously happenings are crucial in real-time systems. Many real-time applications are designed with some periodic execution logics and a significant number of asynchronous events. Evidently it would not be a good performance choice if each event handler is constructed with its own thread of control. However it is generally unclear how to map threads(More)
Over the last few years, JSR 302 has been developing a subset of Java augmented by the RTSJ for use in safety critical systems. The concurrency model supported by Safety Critical Java (SCJ) relies, almost exclusively, on an event-based model rather than a thread-based model. This paper reviews the advantages and disadvantages of the two models and gives the(More)
The Real-Time Specification for Java (RTSJ) is becoming mature. It has been implemented, formed the basis for research and used in serious applications. Some strengths and weaknesses are emerging. One of the areas that requires further elaboration is asynchronous event handling (AEH). The primary goal for handlers in the RTSJ is to have a lightweight(More)
The primary goal for asynchronous event handlers in the Real-Time Specification for Java (RTSJ) is to have a lightweight concurrency mechanism. The emphasis here is on 'lightweightness' which should be achieved by having fewer servers to execute more handlers. Some implementation will, however, simply map a handler to a real-time thread and this results in(More)
Balanced cell growth is crucial in animal development as well as tissue homeostasis. Concerted cross-regulation of multiple signaling pathways is essential for those purposes, and the dysregulation of signaling may lead to a variety of human diseases such as cancer. The time-honored Wnt/β-catenin and recently identified Hippo signaling pathways are(More)
The concurrency utilities in the Java library supply a feature called the executor framework that initiates and controls the execution of threads. It provides many adjustable parameters and extensibility hooks to be useful across a wide range of contexts for specifically configuring a pool of threads to execute submitted runnables depending on the(More)
