The method of finite spheres using moving least squares interpolants and point collocation as the weighted residual scheme is applied to the development of a virtual reality based training system for laparoscopic surgical procedures. The localization of approximation and the lack of numerical integration results in very high computational speeds required… (More)
The central nervous system activity of the petroleum ether extract of Amorphophallus paeoniifolius tuber was examined in mice, fed normal as well as healthy conditions. The petroleum ether extract of Amorphophallus paeoniifolius tuber at the doses of 100, 300 and 1000 mg/kg showed significant central nervous system activity in mice.
Tuple Space based Mobile Middleware (TSMM) is developed to tackle emerging dynamics in underlying infrastructure. Its coordination medium, viz. tuple space model, has multiple inherent decoupled behaviors to coordinate interactions between different agents of supported applications. This paper focuses on one such decoupling quality, synchronization… (More)
Measurements of cross sections of inelastic and diffractive processes in proton–proton collisions at LHC energies were carried out with the ALICE detector. The fractions of diffractive processes in inelastic collisions were determined from a study of gaps in charged particle pseudora-pidity distributions: for single diffraction (diffractive mass
Differential cross sections of charged particles in inelastic pp collisions as a function of p T have been measured at √ s = 0.9, 2.76 and 7 TeV at the LHC. The p T spectra are compared to NLO-pQCD calculations. Though the differential cross section for an individual √ s cannot be described by NLO-pQCD, the relative increase of cross section with √ s is in… (More)
A multilevel gray scale image can quite efficiently be segmented by the multilevel sigmoidal (MUSIG) activation function based on equal and fixed class responses, ignoring the heterogeneity of image information content. The optimized version of MUSIG (OptiMUSIG) activation function can be generated with the optimized class responses from the image content… (More)
Tuple Space based Mobile Middleware (TSMM), with tuple space as its coordination medium, provides decoupled coordination of different agents of its supported applications over mobile, dynamic and unreliable networks, like Infrastructure Basic Service Set (iBSS). TSMM includes its own discovery and communication mechanisms to achieve robustness and… (More)
Mobile Cloud Computing widens the service of existing facility of cloud computing paradigm to user applications executing in mobile/portable devices, called mobile applications. It enables existing cloud services to serve these applications, thereby helps to overcome the inherent limitations of mobile$/$portable devices. However, the use of cloud services… (More)
In this paper, we propose an application layer based modified weight-throwing protocol for the distributed termination detection problem in a purely mobile distributed environment with no static hosts. The mobile hosts are considered with limited functionality. We discuss the effect of mobility on the proposed algorithm and analyze it.
