This article addresses the use of a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) to foster communication and interaction and to facilitate cooperative learning in an online course. The authors delineate the definition and history of massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs), and describe current uses of MMORPGs in education, including their(More)
Vectorizing pre-compilers such as KAP/205 and VAST-2 complement the efficient use of FORTRAN on the CDC Cyber 205. With the advent of the ETA-10 and its EOS/VSOS environment, the performance of these FORTRAN 200 pre-processors has come under closer scrutiny. The extent or quantity of vectorization that can be achieved has been examined elsewhere with(More)
Forty-eight healthy patients undergoing routine surgery participated in this double-blind parallel study in which thiopentone sodium and midazolam maleate were compared for induction of anaesthesia. Twelve patients in each group received diazepam premedication. The purpose of this study was three fold; first to compare the efficacy of these two drugs as(More)
In this paper, we construct a global optimization algorithm to compute the H ∞ norm of the transfer matrix of linear dynamic system. The algorithm takes the benefit of the fact that the generalized eigenvalue problem with Hamiltonian or symplectic structure not only gives a finite number of sets of subintervals of real axis among which the global maximum of(More)
A retrospective study covering a five-year period was conducted on 40 premature neonates who had had general anesthesia for surgical correction of patent ductus arteriosus. The anesthetic management of these patients was carefully reviewed. The mean weight at surgery was 1,243 gm, and the mean gestational age at birth was 29.5 weeks. Various technics of(More)
