Today's smartphones are shipped with various embedded motion sensors, such as the accelerometer, gyroscope, and orientation sensors. These motion sensors are useful in supporting the mobile UI innovation and motion-based commands. However, they also bring potential risks of leaking user's private information as they allow third party applications to monitor(More)
More and more applications and functionalities have been introduced to smartphones, but smartphones have limited resources on computation and battery. To enhance the capacity of smartphones, an interesting idea is to use Cloud Computing and virtualization techniques to shift the workload from smartphones to a computational infrastructure. In this paper, we(More)
Notification service is a popular functionality provided by almost all modern smartphone platforms. To facilitate customization for developers, many smartphone platforms support highly customiz-able notifications, which allow the third party applications to specify the trigger events, the notification views to be displayed, and the allowed user operations(More)
We discuss theoretical aspects of the self-assembly of triangular tiles, in particular, right triangular tiles and equilateral triangular tiles, and the self-assembly of hexagonal tiles. We show that triangular tile assembly systems and square tile assembly systems cannot be simulated by each other in a non-trivial way. More precisely, there exists a(More)
We examine decision problems for various classes of convex languages, previously studied by Ang and Brzozowski under the name " continuous languages ". We can decide whether a language L is prefix-, suffix-, factor-, or subword-convex in polynomial time if L is represented by a DFA, but the problem is PSPACE-hard if L is represented by an NFA. If a regular(More)
Offensive language has arisen to be a big issue to the health of both online communities and their users. To the online community, the spread of offensive language undermines its reputation, drives users away, and even directly affects its growth. To users, viewing offensive language brings negative influence to their mental health, especially for children(More)
Oxidative stress and the resulting change in cell redox state are proposed to contribute to pathogenic alterations in ion channels that underlie electrical remodeling of the diseased heart. The present study examined whether K(+) channel remodeling is controlled by endogenous oxidoreductase systems that regulate redox-sensitive cell functions. Diabetes was(More)
In this paper we consider the computational complexity of the following problems: given a DFA or NFA representing a regular language L over a finite alphabet Σ, is the set of all prefixes (resp., suffixes, factors, subwords) of all words of L equal to Σ * ? In the case of testing universality for factors of languages represented by DFA's, we find an(More)
