Multicore processors are about to become prevalent in the PC world. Meanwhile, over 90% of the computing cycles are estimated to be consumed by streaming media applications [24]. Although stream programming exposes parallelism naturally, we found that achieving high performance on multiprocessors is challenging. Therefore, we develop a parallel compiler for(More)
Our ability to create systems with large amount of hardware parallelism is exceeding the average software developer's ability to effectively program them. This is a problem that plagues our industry. Since the vast majority of the world's software developers are not parallel programming experts, making it easy to write, port, and debug applications with(More)
BACKGROUND Hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) has caused major public health concerns worldwide, and has become one of the leading causes of children death. China is the most serious epidemic area with a total of 3,419,149 reported cases just from 2008 to 2010, and its different geographic areas might have different spatial epidemiology characteristics at(More)
Keywords: Wind turbines Fault diagnosis Second-order stochastic resonance Morlet wavelet transform Multiscale noise a b s t r a c t Condition monitoring of a wind turbine is important to extend the wind turbine system's reliability and useful life. However, in many cases, to extract feature components becomes challenging and the applicability of information(More)
Multiprocessors are about to become prevalent in the PC world. Major CPU vendors such as Intel and Advanced Micro Devices have recently announced their imminent migration to multicore processors. Affine partitioning provides a systematic framework to find asymptotically optimal computation and data decomposition for multiprocessors, including multicore(More)
BACKGROUND Many MetS related biomarkers had been discovered, which provided the possibility for building the MetS prediction model. In this paper we aimed to develop a novel routine biomarker-based risk prediction model for MetS in urban Han Chinese population. METHODS Exploring Factor analysis (EFA) was firstly conducted in MetS positive 13,345 males and(More)
BACKGROUND In patients hospitalized in intensive care units (ICU), Candida infections are associated with increased morbidity, mortality and costs. However, previous studies reported confused risk factors for catheter-related Candida bloodstream infection (CRCBSI). The objective was to describe the risk factors, microbiology, management and outcomes of(More)
