This paper proposes the Networked Game Mobility Model (NGMM), for synthesising mobility in First-Person-Shooter (FPS) networked games. Current networked game research focuses on modelling low-level aspects, such as packet inter-arrival times and packet sizes, to optimise network traffic and efficient use of gaming servers. Due to the increasing popularity… (More)
BACKGROUND Radiofrequency ablation for atrial fibrillation is becoming widely practiced. METHODS AND RESULTS Two patients undergoing circumferential pulmonary vein ablation for atrial fibrillation in different centers developed symptoms compatible with endocarditis 3 to 5 days after the procedure. Their clinical condition deteriorated rapidly, and both… (More)
The Mirrored Server (MS) architecture uses multiple mirrored servers across multiple locations to alleviate the bandwidth bottleneck in the Client/Server (C/S) architecture. Each mirror receives and multicasts player updates to the others, simulates the game, and disseminates the new game state to players. However, keeping the game state consistent between… (More)
This paper defines a new restoration strategy for provision-ing bandwidth guaranteed recovery for multicast connections in presence of link failures. The new restoration strategy is formulated into a new Integer Linear Programming (ILP) algorithm and is compared with other existing restoration strategies. We also present a new heuristic algorithm based on… (More)
In this talk, I will present recent results from a project led at NASAfGSFC, in collaboration with NASAfMSFC and JHU, focused on the development and application of an observation-driven integrated modeling system that represents aerosol, cloud, precipitation and land processes at satellite-resolved scales. The project, known as the NASA Unified WRF… (More)
Changes in neuronal activity have been shown to be accompanied by alteration in regional cerebral blood flow . In the present study, laser speckle imaging (LSI) was employed to measure stimulus-evoked neuronal activities in rat barrel cortex. The spatiotemporal characteristics of hemodynamic response to mechanical stimuli from 1 to 3 Hz were examined. Time… (More)
Gene isoforms are commonly found in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Since each isoform may perform a specific function in response to changing environmental conditions, studying the dynamics of gene isoforms is important in understanding biological processes and disease conditions. However, genome-wide identification of gene isoforms is technically… (More)
This paper identifies and corrects two flaws in the paper "Dynamic routing of restorable bandwidth-guaranteed tunnels using aggregate network resource usage information", Kodialam and Lakshman, IEEE/ACM Trans. Networking, 2003.
