The electromyographer and volunteer were both blinded. Immediately after EMG, subjects reported their experience of pain on a(More)
The basis number b(G) of a graph G is defined to be the least integer k such that G has a k-fold basis for its cycle space. In this note, we determine the basis number of the corona of graphs, in fact we prove that b(v • T) = 2 for any tree and any vertex v not in T, b(v • H) ≤ b(H) + 2, where H is any graph and v is not a vertex of H, also we prove that if(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Pancreatic cysts are becoming more common. Their differential diagnosis includes benign, premalignant, and malignant lesions. Distinguishing the type of cyst helps in the management decision making. We report on a novel tissue acquisition device for pancreatic cysts.
