This paper presents an optimal economic dispatch for power plants by using modified particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm. The economic dispatch problem in power systems is to determine the optimal combination of power outputs for all generating units in order that the total fuel cost can be minimized, furthermore, all practical constraints can be(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the distribution of Ki67+ cells in breast cancer in relation to clinical-pathological parameters and prognosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ki67 expression status was detected in 1,086 breast cancer specimens using immunohistochemistry staining and examining the relationship between the Ki67+ cells' location. Subsequently,(More)
RATIONALE Sustained stress and elevated glucocorticoid reduces neurogenesis, whereas chronic treatment with antidepressants increases neurogenesis and blocks the effects of stress. Recently, TREK-1, a two-pore domain (K(2)p) potassium channel, has been shown to be involved in the mechanisms of major depression. OBJECTIVES This study aimed to investigate(More)
—Due to the limitation of power and processor complexity on traditional single core processors, multi-core processors have become the mainstream. One key feature on commodity multi-cores is that the last level cache (LLC) is usually shared. However, the shared cache contention can affect the performance of applications signicantly. Several existing(More)
In response to the increasing ubiquity of multicore processors, there has been widespread development of multithreaded applications that strive to realize their full potential. Unfortunately, lock contention within operating systems can limit the scalability of multicore systems so severely that an increase in the number of cores can actually lead to(More)
Shuang-huang-lian injection (SHLI) is a famous Chinese patent medicine, which has been wildly used in clinic for the treatment of acute respiratory tract infection, pneumonia, influenza, etc. The existing randomized controlled trial (RCT) studies suggested that SHLI could afford a certain anti-febrile action. However, seldom does research concern the(More)
