In this paper, we provide an asymptotic performance analysis of channel-aware packet scheduling based on extreme value theory. We first address the average throughput of systems with a homogeneous average signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and obtain its asymptotic expression. Compared to the exact through-put expression, the asymptotic one, which is applicable to(More)
We present a detailed design for operation of the Cornell Electron Storage Ring, CESR, in the energy range covering the Ψ resonances and the Charm and Tau thresholds, as well as reaching to the upper Υ resonances near 11 GeV. The addition of 18 m of super-ferric wiggler magnets will partially restore low energy beam emittance and damping times. Installation(More)
This paper presents AnonymousNet (AnonNet), a system for emergency response in large scale disaster areas, e.g., earthquake and tsunami in Japan (2011) and earthquake in Haiti (2010). Despite the attention the " emergency response " application area has received, we still lack data at the high spatial and temporal resolution needed to save lives, and to(More)
Continuous measurements of atmospheric organic and elemental carbon (OC and EC) were taken during the high-pollution fall and winter seasons at Xi'an, Shaanxi Province, China from September 2003 through February 2004. Battery-powered mini-volume samplers collected PM 2.5 samples daily and PM 10 samples every third day. Samples were also obtained from the(More)
Adversity, particularly in early life, can cause illness. Clues to the responsible mechanisms may lie with the discovery of molecular signatures of stress, some of which include alterations to an individual's somatic genome. Here, using genome sequences from 11,670 women, we observed a highly significant association between a stress-related disease, major(More)
Diabetic macular edema (DME) is a common vision threatening complication of diabetic retinopathy which can be assessed by detecting exudates (a type of bright lesion) in fun-dus images. In this work, two new methods for the detection of exudates are presented which do not use a supervised learning step; therefore, they do not require ground-truthed lesion(More)
