There is strong demand for solutions to security problems in various wireless networks, such as WiFi, WiMAX, 3GPP and WSN, not only for the individual networks themselves but also for the integration of these networks. A complete solution cannot be proposed by piecemeal proposals but requires a holistic examination of all security concerns. The solution(More)
Facial expression recognition is an essential issue in the field of human and computer interactions. The objective of this paper is to deal with the problem of failure for the feature points on face based on active appearance model (AAM) in fitting with different users. We train the fitting model for different users before recognition. A high-quality AAM(More)
Background: Empyema frequently complicates the hospitalization of children; and in advanced stages, it often requires surgical intervention. In this study, we investigated the use of video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) for the management of postpneumonic empyema in children who have had an unsatisfactory medical response. Methods: We did a retrospective(More)
The article describes how artificial neural networks with special designs can be applied to approximate a subjective Bayesian decision model without the assumption of conditional independence. New techniques are proposed to resolve some of the practical difficulties during the processes of problem structuring, knowledge elicitation, quantitative modeling,(More)
‘‘Emergency medicine’’ is the front line of medical service a hospital provides; also it is the department people seekmedical care from immediately after an emergency happens. The statistics by the Department of Health, Executive Yuan, indicate that over years, the number of people at the emergency department has been increasing. The US has introduced and(More)
In this paper, four incomplete boundary element formulations, including the real-part singular boundary element, the real-part hypersingular boundary element, the imaginary-part boundary element and the plane-wave element methods, are used to solve the free vibration problem. Among these incomplete boundary element formulations, the real-part singular and(More)
