151 Francis, LeslieJustice through trust: disability and the Outlier problem in Social Contract TheoryThe article focuses on the flaws of the social contract theory. It explores how hostile the social contract as a bargaining process has been thought to distance disabled people from contract-based justice. It analyzes the argument that the history of social contract theory exclude the people with di...Consensus, social sciences; Discrimination; Social contract; Social ethics; Sociology of disability2005-10
152 Thulasinathan, Aravindan; Pascucci, Valerio; Tierny, JulienTopology Based Surface Meshing and MorphingMorphing is a seamless transition from one image to the other, used in animation and motion pictures. Mesh Parameterization used in this process is a fundamental tool used for domain remeshing. In case of 2-manifolds for example, most approaches require that the input mesh be cut into one or mor...2010-10-06
153 Gopalakrishnan, Ganesh; Humphrey, Alan Parker; Derrick, Christopher GladeAn integration of dynamic MPI formal verification within eclipse PTPOur research goals were to verify practical MPI programs for deadlocks, resource leaks, and assertion violations at the push of a button and be able to easily visualize the results. We also sought to integrate these capabilities with the Eclipse IDE via an Eclipse plug-in for the Parallel Tools Plat...Verification; Graphical User Interfaces; Dynamic Interleaving Reduction; Message Passing; MPI; Multi-core; Eclipse Parallel Tools Platform; Trapeze Interactive Poster2010-03-15

155 Li, Guodong; Gopalakrishnan, Ganesh; Kirby, Robert Michael IiPUG : A Symbolic Verifier of GPU ProgramsPUG is a automated verifier for GPU programs written in C/CUDA. PUG verifies GPU kernels for Data Races, Barrier mismatches, Totally wrong results, and Weak memory model related bugs. SMT-based correctness checking methods for these error are often more scalable, general and modular.2010-10-06

159 Narus, Scott P.; Hales, Joseph W.; Poynton, Mollie Rebecca; Evans, R. ScottEnhancing continuity of care through an emergency medical card at Intermountain Healthcare: using the continuity of care record standardComplex and fragmented healthcare systems hamper provision of effective care where it is needed most. 1 In most instances, continuity of care is rarely considered during referral, transfer, or discharge of patients from one caregiver to another. 2,3 The dearth of pertinent current and historical hea...Continuity of care; Emergency medical card; Trapeze Interactive Poster2009
160 Robison, Reid Justin; Marchant, Barrie K.; Reimherr, Frederick W.Gender differences in ADHD adults during clinical trials with atomoxetineIntroduction: Patients with ADHD exhibit several consistent gender differences, a male preponderance and more males with externalizing disorders (conduct and oppositional defiant disorder). Objective: To examine gender differences in a very large clinical trial of adults with ADHD. Methods: ...Trapeze Interactive Poster
161 Awasthi, Manu; Nellans, David W.; Sudan, Kshitij; Balasubramonian, RajeevABP : predictor based management of DRAM row buffersDRAM accesses are costly, especially in multicore systems. Future CMPs will run a mixed load of workloads/threads. Destructive interference at memory controller, spatio-temporal locality lost! DRAM row-buffer hits are least expensive, row-conflicts are most. Randomized memory access patterns re...2010-10-06

163 Beckerle, Mary C.; Clark, Kathleen A.Conserved LIM protein that affects muscular adherens junction integrity and mechanosensory function in Caenorhabditis elegansWe describe here the molecular and functional characterization of the Caenorhabditis elegans unc-97 gene, whose gene product constitutes a novel component of muscular adherens junctions. UNC-97 and homologues from several other species define the PINCH family, a family of LIM proteins whose modula...LIM domains; Caenorhabditis elegans; UNC-97; Adherens junction; Touch neuron; Muscle development1999
164 Mathews, V. JohnA fast recursive least-squares adaptive nonlinear filterThis paper presents a fast, recursive least-squares (RLS) adaptive nonlinear filter. The nonlinearity in the system is modeled using the Hammerstein model, which consists of a memoryless polynomial nonlinearity followed by a finite impulse response linear system. The complexity of our method is abou...1988
165 DeTar, CarletonTopological susceptibility with the improved Asqtad actionChiral perturbation theory predicts that in quantum chromodynamics light dynamical quarks suppress the topological (instanton) susceptibility.We investigate this suppression through direct numerical simulation using the Asqtad improved lattice fermion action. This action holds promise for carrying...Chiral perturbation; Staggered fermions2003-12
166 Zhang, LixinURSIM reference manualSimulation has emerged as an important method for evaluating new ideas in both uniprocessor and multiprocessor architecture. Compared to building real hardware, simulation provides at least two advantages. First, it provides the flexibility to modify various architectural parameters and components a...URSIM; reference manual2000
167 Couldwell, William T.Inhibition of cellular growth and induction of apoptosis in pituitary adenoma cell lines by the protein kinase C inhibitor hypericin: potential therapeutic applicationProtein kinase C (PKC) is an enzyme involved in the regulation of cellular growth, proliferation, and differentiation in a number of tissues including the anterior pituitary, in which it is also believed to play a role in hormone secretion. Protein kinase C activity and expression have been found to...Apoptosis; Hypericin; Pituitary adenoma; Protein kinase C1996
