Research on Fractal Characterization of Data Transmission Performance of Hard Disk

The data transfer rate is the traditional criterion for evaluating the overall performance of a hard disk. In this paper, the data transmission performance of hard disk was characterized based on fractal theory. The traditional mechanical hard disks and solid state disks with different capacities and specifications were tested and the corresponding signal graph of data transfer...

Technical and economic assessment of wind power potential of Nooriabad, Pakistan

Background Pakistan is a developing nation and heavily spends on the development of conventional power plants to meet the national energy demand. The objective of this paper is to investigate wind power potential of site using wind speed, wind direction, and other meteorological data collected over a period of 1 year. This type of detailed investigation provides information of...

JMASM43: TEEReg: Trimmed Elemental Estimation (R)

Trimmed elemental regression is robust to outliers and violations of model assumptions. Its properties and statistical inference were evaluated using bias-corrected and accelerated bootstrap confidence intervals. An R package named TEEReg is developed to compute the trimmed elemental estimates and the corresponding bootstrap confidence intervals. Two examples are provided to...

Existence and uniqueness of the solution of fractional damped dynamical systems

In this paper, we consider the existence and uniqueness of the solution of fractional damped dynamical systems. First, we obtain the spreading form of the Gronwall inequality. Furthermore, several sufficient conditions for the existence of the solutions are derived from the application of fixed point theorems and inequalities such as the Hölder and Gronwall inequalities. MSC...

Bacterial magnetosomes as an efficient gene delivery platform for cancer theranostics

Gene therapy has gained an increasing interest in its anti-tumor efficiency. However, numerous efforts are required to promote them to clinics. In this study, a novel and efficient delivery platform based on bacterial magnetosomes (BMs) were developed, and the efficiency of BMs in delivering small interfering ribonucleic acid (siRNA) as well as antiproliferative effects in vitro...

Procalcitonin-guided antibiotic therapy in intensive care unit patients: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Background Serum procalcitonin (PCT) concentration is used to guide antibiotic decisions in choice, timing, and duration of anti-infection therapy to avoid antibiotic overuse. Thus, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to seek evidence of different PCT-guided antimicrobial strategies for critically ill patients in terms of predefined clinical outcomes. Methods We...

Health-related quality of life in long-term survivors of unresectable locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer

Heath-related quality of life (HRQoL) among survivors with unresectable locally-advanced non-small cell lung cancer (LA-NSCLC) treated with radiotherapy and chemotherapy still is not clear. The current study were performed to determine HRQoL for long-term survivors with unresectable LA-NSCLC and to identify risk factors for poor HRQoL. Among patients with LA-NSCLC receiving...

Design and Simulation for a High-efficiency Class-B Power Amplifier

A class-B power amplifier with high output power and high power added efficiency (PAE) is designed in this paper. Based on the ADS tools of load-pull and source-pull, the optimal load impedance and source impedance can be obtained, respectively. Then, the matching circuit have been achieved by combining the impedance matching technique. Simulation results show that the class-B...

Magnetic Carbon Microspheres as a Reusable Adsorbent for Sulfonamide Removal from Water

Novel reusable magnetic carbon microspheres (MCMs) were prepared by hydrothermal method with glucose as carbon source and Fe3O4 nanoparticles as magnetic raw materials. And adsorption performance of MCMs for sulfonamide removal from water was investigated in detail. The results indicated that the calcination temperature and calcination time had significant effects on the surface...

Role of vasoactive intestinal peptide in osteoarthritis

Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) plays important roles in many biological functions, such as, stimulation of contractility in the heart, vasodilation, promoting neuroendocrine-immune communication, lowering arterial blood pressure, and anti-inflammatory and immune-modulatory activity. Osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic and degenerative bone disease, which is one of the most...
