Many fundamental questions on aging are still unanswered or are under intense debate. These questions are frequently not addressable by examining a single gene or a single pathway, but can best be addressed at the systems level. Here we examined the modular structure of the protein-protein interaction (PPI) networks during fruitfly and human brain aging. In… (More)
A hyperclique pattern  is a new type of association pattern that contains items which are highly affiliated with each other. More specifically, the presence of an item in one transaction strongly implies the presence of every other item that belongs to the same hyperclique pattern. In this paper, we present a new algorithm for mining maximal… (More)
In this paper, a genetic algorithm-based frequency-domain feature search (GAFDS) method is proposed for the electroencephalogram (EEG) analysis of epilepsy. In this method, frequency-domain features are first searched and then combined with nonlinear features. Subsequently, these features are selected and optimized to classify EEG signals. The extracted… (More)

Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) has been widely used in many industries. In the medical environment, especially in some emergency situations, UAVs play an important role such as the supply of medicines and blood with speed and efficiency. In this paper, we study the problem of multi-objective blood supply by UAVs in such emergency situations. This is a… (More)
An in-wheel motor electric vehicle has high unsprung mass because of its in-wheel motor, which decreases vehicle ride comfort and vehicle safety. This paper presents a controllable suspension employing an optimal design hybrid damping control strategy based on ideal skyhook and groundhook as a reference. A sliding mode controller is designed to make the… (More)
