A set of hybrid and adaptive prefetching schemes are considered in this paper. The prefetchers are hybrid in that they use combinations of Stride, Sequential and C/DC prefetching mechanisms. The schemes are adaptive in that their aggressiveness is adjusted based on feedback metrics collected dynamically during program execution. Metrics such as prefetching(More)
In all clinical and research work, it is important not only to have uniform diagnostic criteria but also some means of objectively quantifying the presence and severity of the illness being studied. For this purpose, a number of rating scales have been devised for depressive disorders, probably the single most commonly used one being the Hamilton Rating(More)
This study sought to compare the extent and pattern of burden experienced by relatives of two different patient groups, one with affective disorders and the other with schizophrenia. Cross-sectional assessment of family burden using the Pai and Kapur's Interview Schedule was done in 78 patients with either bipolar disorder or recurrent major depression and(More)
A major performance limiter in modern processors is the long latencies caused by data cache misses. Both compiler and hardware based prefetching schemes help hide these la-tencies and so improve performance. Compiler techniques infer memory access patterns through code analysis, and insert appropriate prefetch instructions. Hardware prefetch-ing techniques(More)
In an effort to achieve the high prediction accuracy needed to attain high instruction throughputs, branch predictors proposed in the literature and used in real systems have become increasingly more complex and larger over time. This is not consistent with the anticipated trend of simpler and more numerous cores in future multi-core processors. We(More)
The perception of communication abilities amongest adolescents with moderate and profound hearing loss was correlated with indices of psychosocial adjustment. This was done to determine whether the use of hearing aids could play a role in presence and improvement of psychosocial functioning among acquired hearing loss persons after the use of hearing aids.(More)
Learned Helplessness Scale - Hindi version (Dhar, Kohli & Dhar, 1987) was administered to 50 graduates. Scoring was done using the original method as given in the manual and by two of its variations. Correlations among the three forms of scoring were found to be very high (.85 and above). In another excercise, 30 of the subjects were administered P.G.I.(More)
