OBJECTIVES
A low cardiac output state is an important cause of morbidity after pediatric cardiopulmonary bypass. The objectives of our study were to define the early precipitants of the reducedâ€¦ (More)

A broadcast cover is a integer valued function f on the vertices of a graph such that every edge uw is distance at most f(v) from some vertex v âˆˆ V . We can regard the vertices v with f(v) > 0 asâ€¦ (More)

The reinforcement number of a graph is the smallest number of edges that have to be added to a graph to reduce the domination number. We introduce the k-reinforcement number of a graph as theâ€¦ (More)

The linear arrangement problem on graphs is a relatively old and quite well-known problem. Hard in general, it remains open on general recursive graphs (i.e., partial k-trees, etc.), which isâ€¦ (More)

The complex variable boundary element method or CVBEM is a numerical technique that can provide solutions to potential value problems in two or more dimensions by the use of an approximation functionâ€¦ (More)

Most internal wars end on the battlefield. In comparison to inter-state conflicts, a relatively small percentage of these fights are concluded at the negotiating table. While significant attentionâ€¦ (More)

Although near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) enables bedside assessment of cerebral oxygenation, it provides little information on the cause of deoxygenation. The authors aimed to investigate theâ€¦ (More)
