Discrete-time queues are infinite dimensional switches in time. Ever since Shannon published his paper ("Memory requirements in telephone exchange," Bell Syst. Tech. J., pp. 343-349, vol. 29, 1950) on the memory requirements in a telephone exchange, there have been tremendous efforts in the search for switches with minimum complexity. Constructing queues(More)
The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)/RAS/RAF/MEK/MAPK pathway is an important pathway in the carcinogenesis, invasion and metastasis of colorectal cancers (CRCs). We conducted a retrospective study to determine the prognostic values of EGFR expression and KRAS mutation in patients with metastatic CRC (mCRC) based on synchronous or metachronous(More)
Background. Based on epidemiological data, clinical trials, and meta-analytic reviews, omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs) seem to be a biological link between depression and cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). Presentation. Involvement of n-3 PUFAs in depression and CVDs may be associated with a chronic, low-grade, inflammation. We hypothesize that(More)
We present a multi-instance object segmentation algorithm to tackle occlusions. As an object is split into two parts by an occluder, it is nearly impossible to group the two separate regions into an instance by purely bottomup schemes. To address this problem, we propose to incorporate top-down category specific reasoning and shape prediction through(More)
The purpose of extractive summarization is to automatically select a number of indicative sentences, passages, or paragraphs from the original document according to a target summarization ratio and then sequence them to form a concise summary. In the paper, we proposed the use of probabilistic latent topical information for extractive summarization of(More)
55 HTLV-I (human T-cell lymphotropic virus) and 45 HTLV-II carriers, confirmed by HTLV-type specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR), were distinguished by western blot assays with recombinant HTLV I or II envelope glycoproteins. Recombinant protein (RP) B1 contains aminoacids 166-201 from HTLV-I exterior glycoprotein gp46 and was reactive with HTLV-I(More)
In this paper, we consider extractive summarization of broadcast news speech and propose a unified probabilistic generative framework that combines the sentence generative probability and the sentence prior probability for sentence ranking. Each sentence of a spoken document to be summarized is treated as a probabilistic generative model for predicting the(More)
MicroRNA (miRNA or miR) inhibition of oncogenic related pathways has been shown to be a promising therapeutic approach for cancer. Aberrant lipid and cholesterol metabolism is involved in prostate cancer development and progression to end-stage disease. We recently demonstrated that a key transcription factor for lipogenesis, sterol regulatory(More)
— Queueing theory is generally known as the theory to study the performance of queues. In this paper, we are interested in another aspect of queueing theory, the theory to construct queues via switched delay lines. We consider three types of discrete-time queues: linear compressors, non-overtaking delay lines and flexible delay lines. These three types of(More)
