The recent discovery that normal and neoplastic epithelial cells re-enter the stem cell state raised the intriguing possibility that the aggressiveness of carcinomas derives not from their existing content of cancer stem cells (CSCs) but from their proclivity to generate new CSCs from non-CSC populations. Here, we demonstrate that non-CSCs of human basal(More)
—This two-part paper series studies the performance of buffered Aloha networks with K-Exponential Backoff collision resolution algorithms. Part I focuses on stability and throughput analysis and Part II presents the delay analysis. In Part I, the buffered Aloha network is modeled as a multi-queue single-server system. We adopt a widely used approach in(More)
