PURPOSE To examine the interrelationships among the Ocular Response Analyzer (ORA; Reichert Ophthalmic Instruments, Buffalo, NY), Goldmann applanation tonometer (GAT), and corneal geometry measurements in a young, healthy sample. METHODS Central corneal radius, ORA, GAT, and central corneal thickness (CCT) measurements were taken in 99 subjects (age, 21 ±(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)
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)
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)
In this article, a new polynomial-time approximation algorithm called Service Path Local Optimization (SPLO) is proposed for the online restoration problem. SPLO is shown to perform competitively with existing offline heuristics algorithm in terms of spare capacity. SPLO is designed for online computation where only one request is computed at any one time,(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the changes in Goldmann applanation tonometry (GAT) and Ocular Response Analyzer (ORA) measurements with corneal edema induced by contact lenses. METHODS Twenty-five healthy, normal subjects (age, 23 ± 2 years) had central corneal radius (CCR), ORA, GAT, and central corneal thickness (CCT) measurements performed in both eyes before(More)

Glycogen is an immediate source of glucose for cardiac tissue to maintain its metabolic homeostasis. However, its excess brings about cardiac structural and physiological impairments. Previously, we have demonstrated that in hearts from dexamethasone (Dex)-treated animals, glycogen accumulation was enhanced. We examined the influence of 5'-AMP-activated(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)
