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)
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)
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)
The parent-of-origin specific expression of imprinted genes relies on DNA methylation of CpG-dinucleotides at differentially methylated regions (DMRs) during gametogenesis. To date, four paternally methylated DMRs have been identified in screens based on conventional approaches. These DMRs are linked to the imprinted genes H19, Gtl2 (IG-DMR), Rasgrf1 and,(More)
AIMS/HYPOTHESIS Human complex metabolic traits are in part regulated by genetic determinants. Here we applied exome sequencing to identify novel associations of coding polymorphisms at minor allele frequencies (MAFs) >1% with common metabolic phenotypes. METHODS The study comprised three stages. We performed medium-depth (8×) whole exome sequencing in(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)
Despite half a century of research, the biology of dinoflagellates remains enigmatic: they defy many functional and genetic traits attributed to typical eukaryotic cells. Genomic approaches to study dinoflagellates are often stymied due to their large, multi-gigabase genomes. Members of the genus Symbiodinium are photosynthetic endosymbionts of stony corals(More)
