Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is a leading cause of cardiovascular mortality. Therefore, identifying patients at highest risk for SCD is crucial. Conventional noninvasive markers of SCD are inadequate because of low positive predictive value. The presence of visible T-wave alternans (TWA) on electrocardiogram often predicts the occurrence of lethal ventricular(More)
Although aging is typically associated with a decline in maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max), young and old subjects, of similar initial muscle metabolic capacity, increased quadriceps VO2max equally when this small muscle mass was trained in isolation. As it is unclear if this preserved exercise-induced plasticity with age is still evident with centrally(More)
Computational reproducibility depends on the ability to not only isolate necessary and sufficient computational artifacts but also to preserve those artifacts for later re-execution. Both isolation and preservation present challenges in large part due to the complexity of existing software and systems as well as the implicit dependencies, resource(More)
We present a light-weight database virtualization (LDV) system that allows users to share and re-execute applications that operate on a relational database (DB). Previous methods for sharing DB applications, such as companion websites and virtual machine images (VMIs), support neither easy and efficient re-execution nor the sharing of only a relevant DB(More)
Delegation is a powerful mechanism to provide flexible and dynamic access control decisions. Delegation is particularly useful in federated environments where multiple systems, with their own security autonomy, are connected under one common federation. Although many delegation schemes have been studied, current models do not seriously take into account the(More)
In a federated system, it is not uncommon for a user profile registered to a particular system to contain enough attributes to request services from that system. Other attributes may be missing from that profile when services are requested from another system. The problem is that currently, when a change in user attributes happens, it is very difficult for(More)
