—In order to meet the requirements of emerging demanding services, network resource management functionality that is decentralized, flexible and adaptive to traffic and network dynamics is of paramount importance. In this paper we describe the main mechanisms of DACoRM, a new intra-domain adaptive resource management approach for IP networks. Based on path(More)
— The structural topology optimization approach can be used to generate the structural design for some desired input-output (force-deflection) requirements. Optimization methods based on genetic algorithms (GA) have recently been demonstrated to have the potential for overcoming the problems associated with gradient-based methods. The success of the GA(More)
This study aimed to examine HIF-2α, TWIST, and CXCR4 expression in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) and assesses the association of their expression with clinicopathological indicators. HIF-2α, TWIST, and CXCR4 protein expression in 129 PTCs, 61 nodular hyperplasia, and 118 normal thyroid tissue specimens was analyzed using immunohistochemistry. The(More)
G protein-coupled estrogen receptor 1 (GPER1) is widely expressed in human breast cancers correlating with increased tumor size and malignancy. Although estrogen signaling via GPER1 was extensively studied in recent years, the underlying molecular mechanism of GPER1-associated metastasis of breast cancer still remains unclear. In this study, the main aims(More)
TGF-β1, SNAI1 and MMP-9 are implicated in tumor invasion and metastasis. The purpose of this study was to examine TGF-β1, SNAI1 and MMP-9 expression in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC), and to assess association of TGF-β1, SNAI1 and MMP-9 expression with several clinicopathological indicators of PTC. TGF-β1, SNAI1 and MMP-9 protein expression in 83 PTCs(More)
— Very often real-world applications involve multiple objectives. Research on multiobjective evolutionary optimization algorithms have amply demonstrated that they are capable of finding multiple and diverse non-dominated solutions which allows the user to choose among many solutions. Although it is difficult to evaluate the importance of the various(More)
This article proposes a multi-scale model suitable for describing patterns of store locations in a large-size supply-chain system. This model uses continuum approximation to simplify the detailed logistics network and supports various levels of decisions, such as robust logistics network designs and service area allocations for distribution centers.
