We develop a new framework for distributed power control for wireless data based on the economic principles of utility and pricing. Utility is defined as the measure of satisfaction that a user derives from accessing the wireless data network. Properties of utility functions are introduced and a specific function, based on throughput per terminal battery(More)
One of the main objectives of the DARPA High Productivity Computing Systems (HPCS) program is to reassess the way we define and measure performance, programmability, portability, robustness and ultimately productivity in the High Performance Computing (HPC) domain. This article describes the Scalable Synthetic Compact Applications (SSCA) benchmark suite, a(More)
As India will ranks first in diabetes now and will continue to do so in 2025, we must prevent the disease by various measures. Before setting the programmes, we should have ample data on the population's knowledge, attitude and practice (KAP) of diabetes. There are some epidemiological studies from southern India, Mumbai and north India, but there is no KAP(More)
Star-P ‡ is an interactive parallel scientific computing environment. It aims to make parallel programming more accessible. Star-P borrows ideas from Matlab*P [3], but is a new development. Currently only a Matlab interface for Star-P is available, but it is not limited to being a parallel Matlab. It combines all four parallel Matlab approaches in one(More)
BACKGROUND Although studies of immigrant Asian Indians in other countries show high rates of diabetes (DM), metabolic syndrome (MetS), and cardiovascular disease (CVD), no randomized, population-based studies of this rapidly growing ethnic group exist in the US. METHODS The sample comprised 1038 randomly selected Asian Indian immigrants, aged 18 years and(More)
Inherited loss of P/Q-type calcium channel function causes human absence epilepsy, episodic dyskinesia, and ataxia, but the molecular "birthdate" of the neurological syndrome and its dependence on prenatal pathophysiology is unknown. Since these channels mediate transmitter release at synapses throughout the brain and are expressed early in embryonic(More)
A rich variety of tools help researchers with high-performance numerical computing, but few tools exist for large-scale combinatorial computing. The authors describe their efforts to build a common infrastructure for numerical and combinatorial computing by using parallel sparse matrices to implement parallel graph algorithms.
Patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) are usually obese and concurrent obesity results into activation of the renin–angiotensin-system (RAS) which is a risk factor for diabetic nephropathy (DN). Gene–gene interaction between acetyl-coenzymeA carboxylase beta (ACACβ) gene, which is involved in fatty acid metabolism and angiotensin II receptors (AGTR1) gene,(More)
UNLABELLED We describe the clinical presentation, diagnostic and management issues in five cases of non-islet cell tumor hypoglycemia (NICTH), diagnosed at a tertiary care institute over a period of 15 years. The clinical, laboratory, and histopathological findings of these patients along with diagnostic utility of IGF2:IGF1 ratio are discussed. The mean(More)
