—The quantitative performance indicators of Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs)—Randomness, Steadiness, Correctness, Diffuseness and Uniqueness—are strictly defined and applied to the evaluation of 45 arbiter PUFs on Virtex-5 FPGAs. The indicators effectively reflect the characteristics of PUFs ranging from 0 to 1 with 1 being the highest performance. The(More)
This paper examines numerical algorithms for factoriza-tion of a low-rank matrix with missing components. We first propose a new method that incorporates a damping factor into the Wiberg method to solve the problem. The new method is characterized by the way it constrains the ambiguity of the matrix factorization, which helps improve both the global(More)
This paper is the third of the series concerning the localization of the index of Dirac-type operators. In our previous papers we gave a formulation of index of Dirac-type operators on open manifolds under some geometric setting, whose typical example was given by the structure of a torus fiber bundle on the ends of the open manifolds. We introduce two(More)
PURPOSE Extracellular matrix metalloproteinase inducer (EMMPRIN) has been reported to play crucial roles, including in angiogenesis, in several carcinomas. However, the correlation between EMMPRIN levels and angiogenesis expression profile has not been reported, and the role of EMMPRIN in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is unclear. In the present study, we(More)
Purpose. Docetaxel/5-FU/CDDP (DFP) therapy is a useful treatment for advanced esophageal cancer. However, adverse reactions such as chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) interfere often with continuation of the chemotherapy. We investigated the efficacy of rikkunshito (TJ-43) on CINV. Methods. Nineteen patients who were going to undergo DFP(More)
Japanese species of the genus Psammoecus Latreille, 1829 are taxonomically revised. Four new species, P. scitus sp. n. (misidentified with P. quadrimaculatus), P. labyrinthicus sp. n., P. boreas sp. n. and P. omotoensis sp. n. are described. Psammoecus bipunctatus (Fabricius, 1792), P. trimaculatus Motschulsky, 1858 (misidentified with P. triguttatus), P.(More)
absTracT It is desirable to build up a lecture video library to enable students to view past lectures at any time and from anywhere on their PCs. For this purpose, we developed a lecture video player/maker system (Yoshida, 2002, 2003). In developing this system, we considered the usability for students and oper-ability for teachers. The player includes a(More)
Flail chest is a rare complication in pediatric patients with blunt chest trauma. There is no general consensus on which treatment is most appropriate for flail chest in pediatric patients, although it has been reported that surgical fixation is associated with beneficial outcomes for flail chest in adults. The present report described two pediatric cases(More)
Recently, not only still pictures but also moving pictures are displayed on the PDAs or cellular phones. When we take a look such pictures, the picture quality seems to be better than those on the CRTs or the large LCDs. In order to clarify the reason, we have investigated the relationship between the subjective quality of different size of pictures with(More)
Although the dissemination of urothelial cancer cells is supposed to be a major cause of the multicentricity of urothelial tumors, the mechanism of implantation has not been well investigated. Here, we found that cancer cell clusters from the urine of patients with urothelial cancer retain the ability to survive, grow, and adhere. By using cell lines and(More)
