The solution to the Schrödinger equation is highly oscillatory when the rescaled Planck constant ε is small in the semiclassical regime. A direct numerical simulation requires the mesh size to be O(ε). The Gaussian beam method is an efficient way to solve the high frequency wave equations asymptotically, outperforming the geometric optics method in that the(More)
Significant complications in the management of osteoarthritis (OA) are the inability to identify early cartilage changes during the development of the disease, and the lack of techniques to evaluate the tissue response to therapeutic and tissue engineering interventions. In recent studies several spectroscopic parameters have been elucidated by Fourier(More)
In this paper we present the design of an audio conference tool, which is one of our efforts to explore application de- signs on top of Named Data Networking. Instead of rely- ing on centralized services as current implementations do, ACT takes a named data approach to discover ongoing conferences as well as speakers in each conference, and to fetch voice(More)
Location based services are the hottest applications on mobile devices nowadays and the growth is continuing. Indoor wireless positioning is the key technology to enable location based services to work well indoors, where GPS normally could not work. Bluetooth has been widely used in mobile devices like phone, PAD etc. therefore Bluetooth based indoor(More)
Currently, the standard treatment for osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is bisphosphonate therapy. Recent studies, however, have shown delayed healing of osteotomies in a subset of OI patients treated with such agents. The current study sought to determine the effects of another therapy, RANKL inhibition, on bone healing and bone strength in the growing oim/oim(More)
Information-Centric Networking is (ICN) [1] gaining increasingly concerns, as an important direction of the Future Internet Architecture research. Although In-network caching is considered as one of the most significant properties of ICN, the cache policy for ICN is still little explored. In this paper, we formulate the in-network caching problem of ICN(More)
The antimicrobial activity and mechanism of CdTe quantum dots (QDs) against Escherichia coli were investigated in this report. Colony-forming capability assay and atomic force microscopy (AFM) images show that the QDs can effectively kill the bacteria in a concentration-dependent manner. Results of photoluminescence spectrophotometry, confocal microscopy,(More)
BACKGROUND Unstable implants in bone become surrounded by an osteolytic zone. This is seen around loose screws, for example, but may also contribute to prosthetic loosening. Previous animal studies have shown that such zones can be induced by fluctuations in fluid pressure or flow, caused by implant instability. METHOD To understand the roles of pressure(More)
