In this paper, a genetic algorithm (GA) embedded search strategy over a colored timed Petri net (CTPN) for wafer fabrication is proposed. Through the CTPN model, all possible behaviors of the wafer manufacturing systems such as WIP status and machine status can be completely tracked down by the reachability graph of the net. The chromosome representation of(More)
NMDA (N-methyl-d-aspartate) receptor, a subclass of the ionotropic glutamate receptors, participates in synaptic transmission and plays important roles in various higher brain functions in the vertebrate central nervous system. Here, we report the cloning of two NR1 subunits of tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus). Phylogenetic analysis strongly supports that(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the prevalence and morphological parameters of lingual concavity, and whether these factors are related to a higher risk of inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) injury when performing an immediate implant surgery in posterior mandible region. METHODS The CBCT images from 237 subjects (1008 teeth) were analysed the shape of the mandibles(More)
INTRODUCTION Environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) is a hazardous component of indoor air, and may increase the risk of respiratory diseases, atherosclerosis and otitis media in children. In this study, we explored the relationship between time inside the house, ETS exposure and urinary cotinine level, and also determined the association of time inside the(More)
This study aims to propose a more efficient control algorithm for the chaotic system synchronization. In this study, a novel wavelet cerebellar model articulation controller (WCMAC) is proposed, which incorporates the wavelet decomposition property with a cerebellar model articulation controller (CMAC). This WCMAC is a generalization network; in some(More)
IMPORTANCE Sleep disturbance is common in children with atopic dermatitis (AD), but effective clinical management for this problem is lacking. Reduced levels of nocturnal melatonin were found to be associated with sleep disturbance and increased disease severity in children with AD. Melatonin also has sleep-inducing and anti-inflammatory properties and(More)
The recent years have witnessed a revolution in computing capabilities. At the same time, modern manufacturing systems are becoming increasingly complex and capital-intensive. Here, we propose a virtual factory wherein an ef®cient prototyping testbed will be provided. It will be possible to develop detailed models to support system design and operation, to(More)
