This paper presents an approach for the personal authentication using rank-level fusion of multispectral palmprints, instead of using multiple biometric modalities and multiple matchers. The rank level fusion involving the non linear combination of hyperbolic tangent functions gives the best recognition rate for the Rank 1 obtained from two types of… (More)

We report F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) "positron emission tomography (PET) super scan" akin to "super scan" of conventional skeletal scintigraphy, in a rare case of primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET) of the kidney. A twelve year old male patient of metastatic PNET of the kidney was subjected to a "true" whole body F-18 FDG PET scan including lower… (More)
Lipopolysaccharide induced acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) leads to an unacceptably high mortality. In this regard, the anti-inflammatory properties of surfactant may provide a therapeutic option. Phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3-K) and the downstream serine/threonine kinase Akt/protein kinase B have a central role in modulating neutrophil… (More)
Hemophilia A is most common recessively inherited bleeding disorder, which affect one in five thousand male births throughout the world. In most of the hemophilic A patients, no common mutation is easily identifiable. This limitation has been overcome by the use of polymorphic DNA marker, i.e., restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP). This marker of… (More)
In this paper we present an evaluation of four contemporary parallel languages: Unified Parallel C (UPC), Message Passing Interface (MPI), STAR-P and Titanium for the Kth selection problem. UPC and MPI are programming languages based on ANSI C standard whereas Titanium is based on Java and STAR-P is based on Matlab. We consider different parameters for… (More)
– As multi-core systems become ubiquitous, parallel computing is the new big thing today. As more and more software systems are designed to take advantage of this capability, the need for the JVM to support and efficiently handle Parallel Garbage collection becomes more relevant than ever before. In this paper, we present a detailed performance analysis of… (More)
