— A Mobile Adhoc Network (MANET) is a cooperative engagement of a collection of mobile nodes without any centralized access point. The underlying concept of coordination among nodes in a cooperative MANET has induced in them a vulnerability to attacks due to issues like dynamically changing network topology, cooperative algorithms and lack of centralized… (More)
The next section entails a discussion of some related efforts which is followed by the RISM system design in section III. Section IV describes protocol and the simulation results are given in the section V. The last section presents some concluding remarks. II. RELATED WORK Reputation-based systems are a new paradigm and are being used for enhancing… (More)
Whole genome comparison consists of comparing or aligning genome sequences with a goal of finding similarities between them. Previously we have shown how SIMD extensions used in Intel processors can be used to efficiently implement the, genome comparing, Smith-Waterman algorithm. Here we present distributed version of that algorithm. We show that on… (More)
We demonstrate, for the first time, how spatial information can be collected through a turbid medium via coherent Raman microspectroscopic imaging. The technique is capable of identifying anthrax endospores inside a sealed paper envelope.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Current treatments of port-wine stain birthmarks typically involve use of a pulsed dye laser (PDL) combined with cooling of the skin. Currently, PDL therapy protocols result in varied success, as some patients experience complete blanching, while others do not. Over the past decade, we have studied the use of photodynamic therapy… (More)
Neutron detection time distribution is an important factor for the dead-time correction for moderator type neutron detectors used in pulsed radiation fields. Measurements of the neutron detection time distributions of multisphere LiI detectors (2Ó, 3Ó, 5Ó, 8Ó, 10Ó and 12Ó in diameter) and AB remmeter were made inside a ANL 20-MeV electron Linac room.… (More)
Studies have suggested that inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) follow a seasonal pattern with regard to their onset and exacerbations. The aim of this study is to determine if there is any seasonal pattern to the onset and exacerbation of IBD in the pediatric population and if the birth of children diagnosed with IBD follows a seasonal pattern. Patients… (More)
— To solve the path schematization in the complicated environments, a new adaptive schematization methodology using ant colony algorithm (AACA) based on prognosticative learning is presented. A novel prognosticative operator for direction during the ant colony state transition is constructed based on an obstacle restriction method (ORM), and the… (More)
