The Cucurbitaceae includes important crops such as cucumber, melon, watermelon, squash and pumpkin. However, few genetic and genomic resources are available for plant improvement. Some cucurbit species such as cucumber have a narrow genetic base, which impedes construction of saturated molecular linkage maps. We report herein the development of highly(More)
The research of Internet distribution of GIS contents is still in its infancy. This paper reports an implementation of a systematic approach to optimize Internet distribution of GIS datasets. The goal is to reduce user-perceived response time and improve users' navigation efficiency.On the server side, a large GIS dataset associated with a map is decomposed(More)
—In the domain of computer security, how to enhance the speed of RSA algorithm has been the research hot spot. With the recent tremendous increase in Graphics Processing Unit's computing capability as a co-processor of the CPU, Nvidia's Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA) can greatly benefit single instruction multiple thread styled, computationally(More)
The classical inexact Newton algorithm is an efficient and popular technique for solving large sparse nonlinear system of equations. When the nonlinearities in the system are well-balanced, a near quadratic convergence is often observed, however, if some of the equations are much more nonlinear than the others in the system, the convergence is much slower.(More)
