The multi-block overset grid method is a powerful technique for high-fidelity computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations about complex aerospace configurations. The solution process uses a grid system that discretizes the problem domain by using separately generated but overlapping structured grids that periodically update and exchange boundary(More)
A new approach for a distributed file system SILENUS based on the federated service-oriented computing environment SORCER is presented. Instead of services running on specific computers, the system is build from federating services in the network. The services are: byte-store service (Byzantium) for the storage of the actual date; metadata-store service(More)
Traditional TCP protocols treat all packet loss as a sign of congestion. Their inability to recognize non-congestion related packet loss has significant effects on the communication efficiency in the wireless networks. Recently proposed protocols such as Freeze-TCP, TCP-Probing, TCP Westwood/Westwood+, TCP Veno, TCP-Jersey, and JTCP, all improve over the(More)
Genetic linkage calculations can be time consuming, even on a fast computer. The ability to collect large family pedigrees has increased the magnitude of linkage computations. Sequential genetic algorithms have many successful applications in very different domains, but they have a main drawback in their utilization. Evaluations are very time-consuming,(More)
Linkage analysis uses information from family pedigrees to map genes and locate disease genes on particular chromosomes. A recombination fraction denoted as theta is estimated as a measure of crossing over between two loci. Genetic linkage calculations are very time-consuming particularly for large family pedigrees, a large number of theta values, and an(More)
