OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to test the efficacy and appropriateness of the World Health Organization's Care for Development (CFD) counseling materials, which form part of the Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) strategy. The CFD materials are based on the Mother's Card, which contained age-specific messages on how caregivers can(More)
Personalizing the release profiles of drugs is important for different people with different medical and biological conditions. A technically simple and low-cost method to fabricate fully customizable tablets that can deliver drugs with any type of release profile is described. The customization is intuitively straightforward: the desired profile can simply(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between maximum standardized uptake value and pathological type, degree of differentiation, tumor size, and clinical staging of nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS This study included 135 cases with pathologically proven NSCLC. Correlations between maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) and pathological(More)
No Runge-Kutta method can be energy preserving for all Hamiltonian systems. But for problems in which the Hamiltonian is a polynomial, the Averaged Vector Field (AVF) method can be interpreted as a Runge-Kutta method whose weights bi and abscissae ci represent a quadrature rule of degree at least that of the Hamiltonian. We prove that when the number of(More)
In a recent series of papers, the class of energy-conserving Runge-Kutta methods named Hamiltonian BVMs (HBVMs) has been defined and studied. Such methods have been further generalized for the efficient solution of general conservative problems, thus providing the class of Line Integral Methods (LIMs). In this paper we derive a further extension, which we(More)
We study the spatial semidiscretizations obtained by applying Runge–Kutta (RK) and partitioned Runge–Kutta (PRK) methods to multisymplectic Hamilto-nian partial differential equations. These methods can be regarded as multisym-plectic hp-finite element methods for wave equations. All the methods we consider are multisymplectic; we determine their properties(More)
— Bisimulation relation as a well known equivalence relation has been successfully applied to computer science and control theory. In our previous work, we proposed the existence of bisimilarity supervisor by introducing simulation-based controllability. As a continuation, this paper deals with the computation for the supremal simulation-based controllable(More)
