A non{interior path following algorithm is proposed for the linear complementarity problem. The method employs smoothing techniques introduced by Kanzow. If the LCP is P 0 +R 0 and satisses a non{degeneracy condition due to Fukushima, Luo, and Pang, then the algorithm is globally linearly convergent. As with interior point path following methods, the(More)
A polynomial complexity bound is established for an interior point path following algorithm for the monotone linear complementarity problem that is based on the Chen{Harker{Kanzow smoothing techniques. The fundamental diierence with the Chen{Harker and Kanzow algorithms is the introduction of a rescaled Newton direction. The rescaling requires the iterates(More)
The stem cell-based experimental therapies are partially successful for the recovery of spinal cord injury (SCI). Recently, acellular spinal cord (ASC) scaffolds which mimic native extracellular matrix (ECM) have been successfully prepared. This study aimed at investigating whether the spinal cord lesion gap could be bridged by implantation of(More)
We present a predictor{corrector non{interior path following algorithm for the monotone linear complementarity problem based on Chen{Harker{Kanzow{Smale smoothing techniques. Although the method is modeled on the interior point predictor{ corrector strategies, it is the rst instance of a non{interior point predictor{corrector algorithm. The algorithm is(More)
Insulin resistance (IR) links Alzheimer's disease (AD) with oxidative damage, cholinergic deficit, and cognitive impairment. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) agonist pioglitazone previously used to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) has also been demonstrated to be effective in anti-inflammatory reaction and anti-oxidative stress in(More)
This paper simulates bonding effects inside pedestrian crowds. Based on the social force model, this paper derives an exponential formulation of the bonding force, as opposed to the repulsive force, and surveys the degree of interpersonal cohesion under various circumstances. Parameters associated with the model are calibrated by preliminary simulation(More)
