Military course of action planning involves time and space synchronization as well as resource and asset allocation. A mission could be seen as a defined set of logical ordered tasks with time and space constraints. The resources to task rules require that available assets should be allocated to each task. A combination of assets might be required to(More)
149 Chinese children (70 boys, 79 girls) with Down's syndrome and congenital heart disease were studied. Diagnosis of the cardiac abnormality was made by cardiac catheterisation in 119, two-dimensional echocardiography in 23 and autopsy in 7. The commonest lesion was ventricular septal defect which was present in 43.6%, a higher frequency than that reported(More)
Discrete static open-loop target search path planning is known to be a NP (non-deterministic polynomial) - Hard problem, and problem-solving methods proposed so far rely on heuristics with no way to properly assess solution quality for practical size problems. Departing from traditional nonlinear model frameworks, a new integer linear programming (ILP)(More)
Discrete search path planning is known to be a NP-Hard problem, and problem-solving methods proposed so far rely on heuristics with no way to reasonably estimate solution quality for practical size problems. Departing from traditional nonlinear model formulations, a novel information-theoretic –based approach using integer linear programming (ILP) is(More)
An 8-year-old boy presented with idiopathic late-onset immunoglobulin deficiency manifested principally by recurrent suppurative chest infections and chronic diarrhoea with malabsorption. Nodular lymphoid hyperplasia and giardiasis were shown on small bowel biopsy. Investigation of the immune system showed low serum levels of IgG, IgM, and IgA, negative(More)
Three cases of chronic nonhaemolytic jaundice with conjugated bilirubin in the serum are described in a Chinese family. Bromsulphthalein excretion tests gave results typical of the Dubin-Johnson syndrome. Liver histology in the proband showed cytoplasmic pigment of the lipofuscinmelanin variety, and intravenous cholecystography failed to show visualisation(More)
