This paper studies the problem of Raptor-code design for binary-input AWGN (BIAWGN) channels using the mean-LLR-EXIT chart approach presented in [1]. We report that there exist situations where such a design approach may fail or fail to produce capacity-achieving codes, for certain ranges of channel SNR. Suggestions and discussions are provided pertaining(More)
Agonist-induced internalisation of receptors may lead to the formation of signalling endosomes. There is little evidence relating to whether this occurs to native receptors in non-transformed cells, and no previous studies asking whether this endosomal signalling can promote cell cycle progression in non-transformed cells. We investigated the hypothesis(More)
Successive projections algorithm combined with partial least squares regression, termed as SPA-PLS approach, was implemented as a novel variable selection approach to multivariate calibration. The proposed approach was applied to near-infrared reflectance data for analyzing moisture in wheat. The number of variables selected from 701 spectral variables was(More)
AIM To perform a meta-analysis to quantitatively summarize the evidence for the association between the Notch signaling pathway and gastric cancer (GC). METHODS An electronic search of the MEDLINE, EMBASE and Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure, which contain articles published from 1966 onwards, was conducted to select studies for this(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Local recurrence after rectal cancer surgery is conceived to result from microscopically incomplete resection. We aimed to investigate the patterns of mesorectal neoplastic foci, and examined the involvement and micrometastasis of lymph nodes. METHODS Observation of large tissue slice and analysis of tissue microarray were integrated(More)
Approximate string matching technique has been widely applied to many fields such as network information retrieval, digital library, pattern recognition, text mining, IP routing searching, network intrusion detection, bioinformatics, and computing in musicology. The two concise parallel dynamic programming algorithms for approximate string matching with(More)
The knowledge of anatomical variations in hepatic artery is of importance to surgeons in planning effective therapeutic strategies for general surgery. Apart from the different source and number variations, the unusual course was also discovered during the angiography and anatomical dissection. The present case report shows a rare case in which the common(More)
By allowing the overlap execution of computation and communication, a multi-round algorithm with inter-node scheduling and intra-node scheduling for divisible loads is presented on the heterogeneous cluster systems of multi-core computers, which have different number of processing cores and distinct computation, communication and memory abilities. The(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to observe the chronic effects of diltiazem release capsules on patients with coronary slow flow (CSF) phenomenon. METHODS From 2004 to 2009, 80 consecutive patients with chest pain and normal coronary arteries evidenced by coronary angiography and CSF were included in this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled(More)
Electronic absorption spectroscopy (EAS), as an indirect analytical technique, has been used to carry out quantitative analysis of unknown samples by establishing a model with calibration samples. Partial least squares (PLS), as a powerful technique for process modeling and multivariate statistical process control, has been widely used to establish this(More)
