Ventricular tumor surgeries pose significant challenges to the neurosurgeon. Apart from the operative challenges and typical complications of surgery, subdural fluid collection is common after these surgeries. Various methods have been used to prevent this complication. The authors' technique of implanting an inflatable balloon attached to a catheter after… (More)
We give near optimal bufferless routing algorithms for leveled networks. N packets with preselected paths are given, and once injected, the packets may not be buffered while in transit to their destination. For the preselected paths, the dilation D is the maximum path length, and the congestion C is the maximum number of times an edge is used. We give two… (More)
A series of 2 beta-substituted 3 beta-phenyltropanes were synthesized as analogs of cocaine and tested in vitro for their ability to displace bound [3H]WIN 35,428 (2b) and inhibit dopamine uptake in rat caudate-putamen tissue. The analogs bound with high affinity (Ki = 11-22 nM) to the dopamine transporter. Increased lipophilicity at the beta-C(2)-position… (More)
In this paper we present the aspects of solving complex problems using Worldwide Computing based distributed approach. The Busy Beaver Problem of distributed Turing Machine emulation is considered as a running example.
The transition metal complexes [eta(6)- (2beta-carbomethoxy-3beta-phenyltropane)]tricarbonylchromium (3) and [eta(6)-(2beta-carbomethoxy-3beta-phenyltropane)] [eta(5)-(pentamethylcyclopentadienyl)]ruthenium(II)triflate (4) were synthesized from 2beta-carbomethoxy-3beta-phenyltropane (2, WIN 35,065) to further elucidate the influence of substituents on the… (More)
