In this paper, an automatic histogram threshold approach based on a fuzzy measure is presented. This work is an improvement of an existing method. Using fuzzy logic concepts, the problems involved in finding the minimum/maximum of a entropy criterion function are avoided. Hamid R Tizhoosh defined a membership function to measure the image fuzziness, which(More)
Web site mining, which aims at automatically discovering and classifying topic-specific web sites from the World Wide Web, has attracted increasing attention as indicated by the exponential growth of both the amount and the diversity of the web information. This paper describes a novel multiscale approach for web site mining, which represents a web site as(More)
Phylogenetic reconstruction help us better understand evolutionary relationship through the analyses of DNA sequences. In this paper, as an example of 8 mitochondrial DNA sequences, by means of a 3D graphical representation and the graph radius of the four characteristic curves to construct the similarity matrix, we proposed a vertical and horizontal method(More)
The MIT Faculty has made this article openly available. Please share how this access benefits you. Your story matters. We review the progress in the last 20–30 years, during which we discovered that there are many new phases of matter that are beyond the traditional Landau symmetry breaking theory. We discuss new " topological " phenomena, such as(More)

Coefficient ofthennal expansion (CTE) mismatch between metal and composite is a major barrier for use ofcomposites in applications that require a metal liner. The situation is critical for cryogenic applications because of the large temperature excursion to which the pipe is'subjected. The paper demonstrates that CTE mismatch can be offset through the use(More)
Background: We aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE), a combination of raltitrexed, oxaliplatin, and epirubicin, for unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Methods: We enrolled 163 patients in this single-center, randomized, controlled trial comparing TACE with epirubicin and oxaliplatin (control(More)
