—One of the key components of an ubiquitous robot (Ubibot) is the software robot (Sobot), which can communicate with embedded robot (Embot) and mobile robot (Mobot). Sobot is a virtual robot, which has the ability to move to any place or to connect to any device through a network without any spatial limitation. Embot has the capability to sense the(More)
Although object-oriented paradigm is becoming a more realistic approach to the development of large-scale software systems, the existing object-oriented notations and methodologies do not fully support the development of distributed object systems. In this paper, we integrate Meta-Object Protocol (MOP) into a de facto standard object-oriented modeling(More)
Esophagectomy is a complex operation with significant morbidity and mortality. Minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE) was described in the 1990s in an effort to reduce operative morbidity. Since then many institutions have adopted and described their series with this technique. This paper reviews the literature on the variety of MIE techniques, clinical and(More)
Recently, we proposed an active thermal extraction (ATX) scheme that enables thermally populated surface phonon polaritons to escape into the far-field. The concept is based on a fluorescence upconversion process that also occurs in laser cooling of solids (LCS). Here, we present a generalized analysis of our scheme using the theoretical framework for LCS.(More)
