In this paper, a Fiduccia-Mattheyses (FM) algorithm incorporating a novel initial partition generating method is proposed. The proposed algorithm applies to both bipartitioning and multi-way partitioning problems with or without replication. The initial partition generating method is based on a gradient decent algorithm. On partitioning without replication,(More)
Genetic recombination is a well-known phenomenon for enteroviruses. In this study, we determined the phylogenetic relationships of five distinct regions of the EV71 genome for 73 EV71 isolates from 1986 and from 1998 to 2005 in Taiwan. Phylogenetic analyses showed that the 5'-UTR, VP4-VP2, VP1, and 3D regions of EV71 isolated in 2004 and 2005 were grouped(More)
BACKGROUND The literature regarding interleukin (IL)-10 polymorphisms and coronary artery lesions (CALs) in Kawasaki disease (KD) is limited. We investigated whether 3 IL-10 genetic polymorphisms (-1082 A/G, -819 T/C, and -592 A/C) are associated with development of CALs in KD. METHODS AND RESULTS The genotyping of IL-10 polymorphisms was conducted for(More)
BACKGROUND Approximately 8-38% of children with Kawasaki disease (KD) will have persistent or recrudescent fever after initial intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) treatment and are at increased risk for development of coronary artery abnormalities. Using genetic markers may be helpful to identify the high-risk group of IVIG-resistant patients for aggressive(More)
We introduce a shared memory software prototype system for executing programs with nested parallelism on a network of workstations. This programming model exhibits a very convenient and natural programming style and provides functionality similar to a subset of Compositional C++. Such programming model is especially suitable for computations whose(More)
To my parents and my wife iii Acknowledgements I would like to express my deepest gratitude to my advisor, Professor Zvi Kedem, for his guidance, support, and encouragement over these years. After leaving school for four years, he helped me to finish my study and made this dissertation possible. I am especially indebted to Arash Baratloo who brought to my(More)
