In order to evaluate the linkage of schizophrenia to loci at chromosome 15q, we genotyped six microsatellite markers at chromosome 15q11-14 in 52 Taiwanese schizophrenic families. Two phenotype models (narrow: DSM-IV schizophrenia only; and broad: including schizophrenia, schizoaffective, and other nonaffective psychotic disorders) were used to define the(More)
To facilitate information standardization and sharing in Construction Industry, this paper presents a simple but effective approach that maps the UML (Unified Modeling Language) object-oriented information model related to a construction project to an XML schema, then to a Relational DataBase (RDB) schema. First of all, the mapping between UML model and XML(More)
SUMMARY This paper studies and compares the domain partitioning algorithms presented by Farhat, Al-Nasra and Nguyen, Malone, and Simon/Hsieh et al. for load balancing in parallel finite element analysis. Both the strengths and weaknesses of these algorithms are discussed. Some possible improvements to the partitioning algorithms are also suggested and(More)
Recently, several domain partitioning algorithms have been proposed to effect load-balancing among processors in parallel finite element analysis. The recursive spectral bisection (RSB) algorithm [l] has been shown to be effective. However, the bisection nature of the RSB results in partitions of an integer power of two, which is too restrictive for(More)
In this work, an iterative mesh partitioning approach is proposed to improve the efficiency of parallel substructure finite element computations. This approach employs an iterative strategy with a set of empirical rules that are derived from results of numerical experiments on a number of different finite element meshes. Two test examples are presented t o(More)
This investigation studies the various magnetic behaviors of graphene oxide (GO) and reduced graphene oxides (rGOs) and elucidates the relationship between the chemical states that involve defects therein and their magnetic behaviors in GO sheets. Magnetic hysteresis loop reveals that the GO is ferromagnetic whereas photo-thermal moderately reduced graphene(More)
