Nowadays Graphic Processing Units (GPU) are gaining increasing popularity in high performance computing (HPC). While modern GPUs can offer much more computational power than CPUs, they also consume much more power. Energy efficiency is one of the most important factors that will affect a broader adoption of GPUs in HPC. In this paper, we systematically(More)
Cross-language speaker adaptation has many interesting applications, e.g. speech-to-speech translation. However, in cross-language speaker adaptation, a common phoneme set, assumed to be used by different speakers of the same language, does not exist any longer. Instead, a nearest neighbor based phoneme mapping from one language to the other has been(More)
USM (Ultrasonic Motor) is widely used in the aerospace, medical, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) for its distinguished feature including low speed, high torque, electromagnetic compatibility, and self-locking function etc. In this paper, we propose a small U-type linear motor stator structure, with the use of finite element analysis to select the(More)
Since its discovery, gonadotropin-inhibitory hormone (GnIH) has appeared to act as a key neuropeptide in the control of vertebrate reproduction. GnIH acts via the novel G protein-coupled receptor 147 (GPR147) to inhibit gonadotropin release and synthesis. To determine the physiological functions of GnIH in the pig, a study was conducted to clone and(More)
RFamide-related peptide-3 (RFRP-3) has been proposed as a key inhibitory regulator of mammalian reproduction. To further determine the potential mechanisms and sites of action of RFRP-3, we systematically investigated the direct effect of RFRP-3 on the female pig reproductive axis in vitro. Initially, we confirmed that G protein-coupled receptor 147(More)
In a grid application, some requirements may change while the execution is in progress. This paper presents in-vivo enhancement--updating running grid applications to facilitate their perfective maintenance. Because applications in this domain are not only typically long-running, but also time-consuming to deploy, we propose a dynamic update technique that(More)
With the rapid growth of both information and users, how to effectively improve the quality of network service becomes an urgent problem to be addressed. Load balancing is to overcome this problem in an effective way. At present it is mainly achieved by the load-balancing hardware and software, but there are also many problems, such as unscientific and(More)
We show for the first time that collectively jammed disordered packings of three-dimensional monodisperse frictionless hard spheres can be produced and tuned using a novel numerical protocol with packing density ␾ as low as 0.6. This is well below the value of 0.64 associated with the maximally random jammed state and entirely unrelated to the ill-defined "(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this research was to assess the value of the transitional zone index (TZI) and intravesical prostatic protrusion (IPP) from transrectal ultrasonography in evaluating the severity and progression of disease by analyzing the relationship between the 2 parameters and symptoms, clinical history, and urodynamics in benign prostatic hyperplasia(More)
This paper proposed a smart handover algorithm based on fuzzy neural network. In LTE Two-tier Macrocell/Femtocell Systems, the fuzzy neural network is used to select the appropriate network which to access to taking several factors into consideration. As radius of Femtocell coverage is small, it is essential to introduce UE speed pre-judgement module in(More)
