BACKGROUND The objectives of this study were to establish whether the occlusion of the appendicular stump by using nonabsorbable polymeric clips is technically feasible and whether differences exist in the postoperative course of patients to whom polymeric clips are applied compared with patients whose appendicular stump is closed with a surgical stapler.(More)
We study synchronization in delay-coupled neural networks of heterogeneous nodes. It is well known that heterogeneities in the nodes hinder synchronization when becoming too large. We show that an adaptive tuning of the overall coupling strength can be used to counteract the effect of the heterogeneity. Our adaptive controller is demonstrated on ring(More)
We study synchronization in heterogeneous FitzHugh-Nagumo networks. It is well known that heterogeneities in the nodes hinder synchronization when becoming too large. Here we develop a controller to counteract the impact of these heterogeneities. We first analyze the stability of the equilibrium point in a ring network of heterogeneous nodes. We then derive(More)
