Bilateral Random Projections

  CERN Preprints

Summary: Low-rank structure have been profoundly studied in data mining and machine learning. In this paper, we show a dense matrix $X$'s low-rank approximation can be rapidly built from its left and right random projections $Y_1=XA_1$ and $Y_2=X^TA_2$, or bilateral random projection (BRP). We then show power scheme can further improve the precision. The deterministic, average and deviation bounds of the proposed method and its power scheme modification are proved theoretically. The effectiveness and the efficiency of BRP based low-rank approximation is empirically verified on both artificial and real datasets.

Bilateral zeta functions and their applications

  CERN Preprints

Summary: We introduce a new type of multiple zeta functions, which we call bilateral zeta functions, analogous to the Barnes zeta functions. The bilateral zeta function is a periodic function and shares certain basic properties of Barnes zeta function. Especially, we prove that the bilateral zeta function has a nice Fourier series expansion and the Barnes zeta function can be expressed as a finite sum of bilateral zeta functions. By these properties of the bilateral zeta functions, We obtain simple proofs of some formulas, for example the reflection formula for the multiple gamma function, the inversion formula of the Dedekind eta function, Ramanujan's formula, Fourier expansion of the Barnes zeta function and multiple Iseki's formula.

Bilateral Filtering for Gray and Color Images

  CiteSeer

Summary: tomasi @ cs.stanford.edu Bilateral filtering smooths images while preserving edges, by means of a nonlinear combination of nearby image values. The method is noniterative, local, and sim-ple. It combines gray levels or colors based on both their geometric closeness and their photometric similariv, and prefers near values to distant values in both domain and range. In contrast with filters that operate on the three bands of a color image separately, a bilateral filter can en-force the perceptual metric underlying the CIE-Lab color space, and smooth colors and preserve edges in a way that is tuned to human perception. Also, in contrast with standardjltering, bilateral filtering produces no phantom colors along edges in color images, and reduces phantom colors where they appear in the original image. 1

The nature of bilateral supernova remnants

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: We present high-resolution radio images at 1.4 GHz of two Galactic supernova remnants (SNRs), G003.8--00.3 (formerly G003.7--00.2) and G350.0--02.0 (formerly G350.0-01.8). Although the two objects are very different in appearance, in both cases the radio emission shows a clear bilateral (or ``barrel'') morphology for which the axis is parallel to the Galactic Plane. The majority of Galactic SNRs have now been observed at high resolution, and one can define a clear bilateral subset of the population. We consider a sample of 17 such SNRs, and find a highly significant tendency for the bilateral axes of these SNRs to be aligned with the Galactic Plane. We interpret this as indicating that ``extrinsic'' effects dominate the morphology of such remnants. Specifically, we argue that the Galactic magnetic field causes these SNRs to appear bilateral, either directly, in the form of magnetic field compression and/or quasi-perpendicular acceleration of electrons in the supernova shock, or more likely indirectly, by pre-processing the interstellar medium to produce density stratifications extended along the Plane.

Bilateral Exposure and Contrast Management System

  CiteSeer

Summary: Under the supervision of Professor Frdo Durand, I have designed and implemented a software system that provides users flexibility in controlling the exposure of selective areas of a high-dynamic-range image. When the user selects an area of the image to modify, the system renders an alpha channel using a non-linear bilateral algorithm. This algorithm takes into account both spatial information provided by the users selection and intensity information calculated using a Gaussian similarity function. The bilateral algorithm allows for precise and naturallooking alpha channels to be rendered even when the user makes imprecise, hand-drawn selections on the image. These alpha channels control the strength of the local exposure adjustments to yield aesthetically-pleasing results. This work was inspired by research on bilateral filtering [Tomasi et al. 1998], contrast management of high-dynamicrange images using bilateral filtering [Durand and Dorsey 2002], and local exposure management in traditional film photography using Ansel Adams Zone System. This paper contains an introduction to the system, a users guide, and developers notes on selected implementation details. 1.

Measuring Bilateral Symmetry in Three Dimensional Magnetic Resonance Images

  CiteSeer

Summary: An important example of bilateral symmetry in nature is the approximate bilateral symmetry exhibited by humans. Detecting and measuring bilateral symmetry in medical images should provide benefits in a clinical environment --- particularly in the area of cranio-facial reconstructive surgery. Just as artisans have created bilaterally symmetric cultural artefacts for thousands of years, modern surgeons attempt to reconstruct malformed cranio-facial features so that they are approximately bilaterally symmetric --- approximate bilateral symmetry is an important concept in the human notion of `beauty'. This paper presents a method for detecting the dominant plane of bilateral symmetry in a three dimensional (3D) image and subsequently measuring the degree of bilateral symmetry in the image. The approach is similar to other work in the field, however this paper provides a unique perspective to the problem by using a simple representation of the data and a more sensitive measure of symmetry. ...

Case Note Bilateral superficial brachial artery

  CiteSeer

Summary: Variations of the upper limb arterial system are well documented. Accurate knowledge of the normal and variant arterial anatomy of the axillary artery is important for clinical procedures and vascular radiology. In this article, a rare bilateral variation of superficial brachial artery is being reported. The axillary artery on both sides divided in its third part into a superficial brachial artery passing superficial to the lateral root of median nerve and brachial artery proper. The former terminated in the cubital fossa by dividing into ulnar and radial arteries while the later descended deep to the medial root of median nerve and gave anterior and posterior circumflex humeral branches of axillary artery and profunda brachii of brachial artery. Then it terminated by giving twigs to muscles of arm. Earlier superficial brachial artery is reported with a prevalence rate varying from 0.2 25 % but a bilateral variation is extremely rare. Further its ontogeny and clinical implications are discussed in detail. Key words: Superficial brachial artery, brachial artery, Axillary artery Since variations in arterial pattern of upper limb are observed so frequently, it can be aptly said that variation is a rule rather than an exception. One such variation is superficial brachial artery in which the artery crosses superficial to median nerve. It is reported by different authors with a prevalence rate varying from 0.2 25 %. However almost all of them are silent about its bilateral occurrence. One such case was found in the

Summary: Bilateral infrapatellar tendon rupture is a very rare event. There are only ten previous reports in the literature and, of these, nine patients had an underlying systemic illness. 1, 2, 3 CASE 1 A 58-year-old man with a past history of acquired emphysema was admitted after his legs 'gave way ' as he walked down a short flight of steps. He was unable to extend either knee actively. Bilateral patellar tendon ruptures were diagnosed clinically from the history, and the finding of swelling and a palpable gap below the lower pole of each patella. The diagnosis was confirmed radiologically (Figure). There was no history of systemic illness and the patient had never received steroids. Figure. Lateral X-ray views of bilateral patellar His physique was not suggestive of a tendon rupture.

The ESR was moderatelv elevated. 75mm/hr. but the RA latex, Rose Waaler/DAT titre and the anti-nuclear antibody tests were negative. Plasma protein electrophoresis was normal, serum urate 0 26 mmol/l and serum calcium 2-4 mmol/l. At operation, the infrapatellar tendons were found to be ruptured through the mid-zone of the tendon bodies. Open repair was performed using an absorbable suture. Biopsy showed no evidence of underlying inflammation. He was in hospital for three weeks, and both legs were immobilised for six weeks in plaster of paris cylinders. After six months he had slowly regained full active extension in both knees. No cause for the raised ESR was found and this fell to normal levels spontaneously. He is now fully mobile and requires no external aid.

Passive feedforward approach to bilateral teleoperated manipulators

  CiteSeer

Summary: A control scheme for linear dynamically similar bilateral teleoperated manipulator system which ensures that the closed loop system is energetically passive is proposed. Energetic passivity implies that the teleoperated manipulator system is safe to interact with, and that the coupling between the system and any strictly passive environment is stable. The control objective is for the two manipulators in the system to behave in unison under the influence of both the operator and the work environment, while maintaining energetic passivity. The dynamics of the system in unison and its response to the operator and work environment can be specified as kinematic and power scalings. To maintain energetic passivity with feedback and feedforward actions, the proposed control makes use of two fictitious internal energy storages. The result is that when the internal state of the storage elements are suitably initialized, the teleoperated manipulator system achieves asymptotic locking even in the presence of external (bounded) forcing from the operator and work environment. 1

Summary: Nonlinear bilateral filters (BF) deliver a fine blend of computational simplicity and blur-free denoising. However, little is known about their nature, noise-suppressing properties, and optimal choices of filter parameters. Our study is meant to fill this gap-explaining the underlying mechanism of bilateral filtering and providing the methodology for optimal filter selection. Practical application to CT image denoising is discussed to illustrate our results.

Morphological Correlates of Bilateral Synchrony in the Rat Cerebellar Cortex

  CiteSeer

Summary: Simultaneous recordings of the left and right crus IIA of the cerebellar cortex in the rat have demonstrated that Purkinje ceils of both sides can be activated synchronously by their climbing fibers. Because climbing fibers arise exclusively from the contralateral inferior olive (IO), this physiological finding seems to contradict the anatomy. To define the structural basis responsible for the bilateral synchrony, we examined the possibilities that bilateral common afferent inputs to the IO and interolivary connections form the underlying mechanisms. The bilaterality of the major afferents of the olivary regions that project to crus IIA was studied using Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin as an anterograde tracer. We found that the excitatory and inhibitory projections from the spinal trigeminal nucleus and dorsolateral hump of the interposed cerebellar nucleus to the transition area between the principal olive and

Fast O(1) bilateral filtering using trigonometric range kernels

  CERN Preprints

Summary: It is well-known that spatial averaging can be realized (in space or frequency domain) using algorithms whose complexity does not depend on the size or shape of the filter. These fast algorithms are generally referred to as constant-time or O(1) algorithms in the image processing literature. Along with the spatial filter, the edge-preserving bilateral filter [bilateralFilter] involves an additional range kernel. This is used to restrict the averaging to those neighborhood pixels whose intensity are similar or close to that of the pixel of interest. The range kernel operates by acting on the pixel intensities. This makes the averaging process non-linear and computationally intensive, especially when the spatial filter is large. In this paper, we show how the O(1) averaging algorithms can be leveraged for realizing the bilateral filter in constant-time, by using trigonometric range kernels. This is done by generalizing the idea in [bilateralFilter_fast] of using polynomial range kernels. The class of trigonomet...

SUPRATENTORIAL LOW-GRADE GLIOMAS IN ADULTS

  CiteSeer

Summary: In more than 80 % of cases, the fi rst manifestation of low-grade glioma (LGG) is a partial or (secondarily) generalized seizure in a young adult (median age, 3539 years) who is otherwise in good general health with a normal neurological examination. Much more rarely, progressive defi cit, cognitive dysfunction, or intracranial hypertension will reveal the disease. In this setting, MRI of the brain with and without gadolinium infusion is mandatory. The MRI aspect is not specifi c, but the diagnosis is strongly suspected when a nonenhancing mass (hypointense on T1-weighted images and hyperintense on T2-weighted images or FLAIR sequences) is discovered in the frontal-temporal-insular region or within the parasagittal frontal-parietal regions, the most frequent and characteristic locations of LGG (Duffau and Capelle, 2004). Occasionally, contrast enhancement is seen, or the tumor widely infi ltrates the brain at the onset (gliomatosis cerebri). MR spectroscopy and PET scan (fl uorodeoxyglucose and methionin) are useful to guide a biopsy and for differential diagnosis. The most frequently

Towards Barter Double Auction as Model for Bilateral Social Cooperations

  CERN Preprints

Summary: The idea of this paper is an advanced game concept. This concept is expected to model non-monetary bilateral cooperations between self-interested agents. Such non-monetary cases are social cooperations like allocation of high level jobs or sexual relationships among humans. In a barter double auction, there is a big amount of agents. Every agent has a vector of parameters which specifies his demand and a vector which specifies his offer. Two agents can achieve a commitment through barter exchange. The subjective satisfaction level (a number between 0% and 100%) of an agent is as high as small is the distance between his demand and the accepted offer. This paper introduces some facets of this complex game concept.

Bilateral teleoperation of multiple UAVs with decentralized bearingonly formation control

  CiteSeer

Summary: Abstract We present a decentralized system for the bilateral teleoperation of groups of UAVs which only relies on relative bearing measurements, i.e., without the need of distance information or global localization. The properties of a 3D bearing-formation are analyzed, and a minimal set of bearings needed for its definition is provided. We also design a novel decentralized formation control almost globally convergent and able to maintain bounded and non-vanishing inter-distances among the agents despite the absence of direct distance measurements. Furthermore, we develop a multimaster/multi-slave teleoperation setup in order to control the overall behavior of the group and to convey to the human operator suitable force cues, while ensuring stability in presence of delays and packet losses over the master-slave communication channel. The theoretical framework is validated by means of extensive human/hardware in-the-loop simulations using two force-feedback devices and a group of quadrotors. I.

Bargaining, Mergers, and Technology Choice in Bilaterally Oligopolistic Industries

  CiteSeer

Summary: This paper provides a conceptual framework of multilateral bargaining in a bilaterally oligopolistic industry to analyze the motivations for horizontal mergers, technology choice, and their welfare implications. We first analyze the implication of market structure for the distribution of industry profits. We find that retailer mergers are more likely (less likely) if suppliers have increasing (decreasing) unit costs, while supplier mergers are more likely (less likely) if goods are substitutes (complements). In a second step we explore how market structure affects suppliers ' technology choice, which reflects a trade-off between inframarginal and marginal production costs. We find that suppliers focus more on marginal cost reduction if (i) retailers are integrated and (ii) suppliers are non-integrated. In a final step we consider the whole picture where both market structure and (subsequent) technology choice are endogenous. Analyzing the equilibrium market structure, we find cases where retailers become integrated to induce suppliers to choose a more efficient technology, even though integration weakens their bargaining position. In this case the merger benefits all parties, i.e., suppliers, retailers, and even consumers. However, we also show that the equilibrium market structure does often not maximize welfare.

On the Origin of Asymmetries in Bilateral Supernova Remnants

  Astrophysics (arXiv)

Summary: AIMS: We investigate whether the morphology of bilateral supernova remnants (BSNRs) observed in the radio band is determined mainly either by a non-uniform interstellar medium (ISM) or by a non-uniform ambient magnetic field. METHODS: We perform 3-D MHD simulations of a spherical SNR shock propagating through a magnetized ISM. Two cases of shock propagation are considered: 1) through a gradient of ambient density with a uniform ambient magnetic field; 2) through a homogeneous medium with a gradient of ambient magnetic field strength. From the simulations, we synthesize the synchrotron radio emission, making different assumptions about the details of acceleration and injection of relativistic electrons. RESULTS: We find that asymmetric BSNRs are produced if the line-of-sight is not aligned with the gradient of ambient plasma density or with the gradient of ambient magnetic field strength. We derive useful parameters to quantify the degree of asymmetry of the remnants that may provide a powerful diagnostic of the microphysics of strong shock waves through the comparison between models and observations. CONCLUSIONS: BSNRs with two radio limbs of different brightness can be explained if a gradient of ambient density or, most likely, of ambient magnetic field strength is perpendicular to the radio limbs. BSNRs with converging similar radio arcs can be explained if the gradient runs between the two arcs.

A fast approximation of the bilateral filter using a signal processing approach

  CiteSeer

Summary: The bilateral filter is a nonlinear filter that smoothes a signal while preserving strong edges. It has demonstrated great effectiveness for a variety of problems in computer vision and computer graphics, and fast versions have been proposed. Unfortunately, little is known about the accuracy of such accelerations. In this paper, we propose a new signal-processing analysis of the bilateral filter which complements the recent studies that analyzed it as a PDE or as a robust statistical estimator. The key to our analysis is to express the filter in a higher-dimensional space where the signal intensity is added to the original domain dimensions. Importantly, this signal-processing perspective allows us to develop a novel bilateral filtering acceleration using downsampling in space and intensity. This affords a principled expression of accuracy in terms of bandwidth and sampling. The bilateral filter can be expressed as linear convolutions in this augmented space followed by two simple nonlinearities. This allows us to derive criteria for downsampling the key operations and achieving important acceleration of the bilateral filter. We show that, for the same running time, our method is more accurate than previous acceleration techniques. Typically, we are able to process a 2 megapixel image using our acceleration technique in less than a second, and have the result be visually similar to the exact computation that takes several tens of minutes. The acceleration is most effective with large spatial kernels. Furthermore, this approach extends naturally to color images and cross bilateral filtering. 1

Bilateral Trade Agreements in the Asia-Pacific: Wise or Foolish Policies?

  CiteSeer

Summary: Bilateralism is mushrooming in the Asia-Pacific, yet the motives for it remain puzzling. Why do countries devote substantial effort to bilateral free trade agreements that are providing limited additional benefits when compared both with unilateral liberalisation and with the multilateral regime? Furthermore, some of the deals recently implemented are less trade liberalising than the powerful rhetoric would suggest. For example, the free trade agreement between Australia and the United States is not including substantially all the trade and, on top of that, is asymmetric Australias access to the American market is more restricted than vice versa. The paper first addresses some conceptual issues and analyses the disadvantages of bilateral free trade agreements. Here, the need for rules of origin is of particular concern. These have two effects. First, they result in additional costs to producers. Whilst the dismantling of tariffs reduces the cost of trade, the need to administer rules of origin increases them. Second, transnational production is made more complicated. In order to qualify for duty free trade, the region for the sourcing of inputs shrinks, with negative consequences for competitiveness. Subsequently, the bilateral agreements of Australia, Singapore and Thailand will be examined. At closer inspection, these preferential deals are not convincing. All of them require complex rules of origin and do not make a significant contribution to the liberalisation of trade. Key words: Free trade agreements; bilateralism; rules of origin; protectionism Contact Details:

How to Grow an Organism Inside-Out: Evolution of an internal skeleton from an external skeleton in bilateral organisms

  Quantitative Biology (arXiv)

Summary: An intriguing unanswered question about the evolution of bilateral animals with internal skeletons is how an internal skeleton evolved in the first place. Computational modeling of the development of bilateral symmetric organisms suggests an answer to this question. Our hypothesis is that an internal skeleton may have evolved from a bilaterally symmetric ancestor with an external skeleton. By growing the organism inside-out an external skeleton becomes an internal skeleton. Our hypothesis is supported by a computational theory of bilateral symmetry that allows us to model and simulate this process. Inside-out development is achieved by an orientation switch. Given the development of two bilateral founder cells that generate a bilateral organism, a mutation that reverses the internal mirror orientation of those bilateral founder cells leads to inside-out development. The new orientation is epigenetically inherited by all progeny. A key insight is that each cell contained in the newly evolved organism with the internal skeleton develops according to the very same downstream developmental control network that directs the development of its exoskeletal ancestor. The networks and their genomes are are identical, but the interpretation is different because of the cell's inverted orientation. The result is inside-out bilateral symmetric development generating an inside-out organism with an internal skeleton.

A contrast-enhanced T1 weighted image showed enhancement along the bilateral optic nerve sheath. Moreover, diffusion-weighted image (DWI) and an apparent diffusion coefficient map showed markedly restricted diffusion on bilateral optic nerves. Although MR findings of T2-weighted and contrast enhanced T1-weighted images may be nonspecific, the DWI finding of cytotoxic edema of bilateral optic nerves will be helpful for the diagnosis of acute ischemic optic neuropathy after spine surgery.

Acceleration of the shiftable O(1) algorithm for bilateral filtering and non-local means

  CERN Preprints

Summary: A direct implementation of the bilateral filter [1] requires O(\\sigma_s^2) operations per pixel, where \\sigma_s is the (effective) width of the spatial kernel. A fast implementation of the bilateral filter was recently proposed in [2] that required O(1) operations per pixel with respect to \\sigma_s. This was done by using trigonometric functions for the range kernel of the bilateral filter, and by exploiting their so-called shiftability property. In particular, a fast implementation of the Gaussian bilateral filter was realized by approximating the Gaussian range kernel using raised cosines. Later, it was demonstrated in [3] that this idea could be extended to a larger class of filters, including the popular non-local means filter [4]. As already observed in [2], a flip side of this approach was that the run time depended on the width \\sigma_r of the range kernel. For an image with (local) intensity variations in the range [0,T], the run time scaled as O(T^2/\\sigma^2_r) with \\sigma_r. This made it difficult t...

Fast Bilateral Filtering for the Display of High-Dynamic-Range Images

  CiteSeer

Summary: We present a new technique for the display of high-dynamic-range images, which reduces the contrast while preserving detail. It is based on a two-scale decomposition of the image into a base layer, encoding large-scale variations, and a detail layer. Only the base layer has its contrast reduced, thereby preserving detail. The base layer is obtained using an edge-preserving filter called the bilateral filter. This is a non-linear filter, where the weight of each pixel is computed using a Gaussian in the spatial domain multiplied by an influence function in the intensity domain that decreases the weight of pixels with large intensity differences. We express bilateral filtering in the framework of robust statistics and show how it relates to anisotropic diffusion. We then accelerate bilateral filtering by using a piecewise-linear approximation in the intensity domain and appropriate subsampling. This results in a speed-up of two orders of magnitude. The method is fast and requires no parameter setting.

Bilateral Serous Retinal Detachment as a Presenting Sign of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

  CiteSeer

Summary: We present a case of bilateral serous retinal detachment (SRD) as a presenting sign of Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (Ph + ALL). A 45-year-old woman presented with decreased vision and was found to have bilateral serous retinal detachment. Peripheral blood smears revealed leukocytosis of 53.9x10 3 /L with 64.6 % lymphoblasts. A bone marrow aspirate revealed the presence of lymphoblasts. Cytogenetic and molecular genetic analysis detected a reciprocal translocation between chromosome 9 and 22, t(9;22) (q34;q11). A diagnosis of Ph + ALL was made. Following systemic chemotherapy, the bilateral SRD resolved completely with full recovery of vision. The sudden appearance of SRD should raise suspicion for leukemia. Prompt recognition of this disease is important for early systemic treatment and restoration of visual function. Key Words: Acute lymphoblastic leukemia, Precursor cell lymphoblastic leukemia-lymphoma, Serous retinal detachment Ocular involvement is common in acute leukemia; it has been reported to occur in up to 90 % of patients with this disease [1].

Bilateral Inflammatory Aural Polyps: A Manifestation of Samters Triad

  CiteSeer

Summary: We report an unusual case of bilateral inflammatory aural polyps in a patient with Samters triad. This 52-year-old patient had a history of chronic rhinosinusitis with sinonasal polyps, asthma, and aspirin sensitivity, with progressive right-sided hearing loss, otorrhea, and aural fullness. She was found to have bilateral aural polyps, with the larger obstructing lesion on the right. A computed tomography supported these findings and revealed bilateral opacification of the middle ear cleft and mastoid air cells. An initial right tympanomastoidectomy was performed with the specimen histologically resembling a typical sinonasal polyp. We speculate that this patients middle ear polyposis is secondary to the inflammatory changes of Samters triad. This has not been described previously in the literature.

A Clifford Dyadic Superfield from Bilateral Interactions of Geometric Multispin Dirac Theory

  HEP - Theory (arXiv)

Summary: Multivector quantum mechanics utilizes wavefunctions which are Clifford aggregates (e.g. sum of scalar, vector, bivector). This is equivalent to multi- spinors constructed of Dirac matrices, with the representation independent form of the generators geometrically interpreted as the basis vectors of spacetime. Multiple generations of particles appear as left ideals of the algebra, coupled only by now-allowed right-side applied (dextral) operations. A generalized bilateral (two-sided operation) coupling is proposed which includes the above mentioned dextrad field, and the spin-gauge interaction as particular cases. This leads to a new principle of {\\it poly-dimensional covariance}, in which physical laws are invariant under the reshuffling of coordinate geometry. Such a multigeometric superfield equation is proposed, which is sourced by a bilateral current. In order to express the superfield in representation and coordinate free form, we introduce Eddington E-F {\\it double-frame} numbers. Symmetric tensors can now be represented as 4D ``dyads", which actually are elements of a global 8D Clifford algebra. As a restricted example, the dyadic field created by the Greider-Ross multivector current (of a Dirac electron) describes both electromagnetic and Morris- Greider gravitational interactions.

Reduced 5-HT2A receptor signaling following selective bilateral amygdala damage

  CiteSeer

Summary: Neurobiological evidence implicates the amygdala as well as serotonergic (serotonin, 5-HT) signaling via postsynaptic 5-HT2A receptors as essential substrates of anxiety behaviors. Assuming a functional interdependence of these substrates, we hypothesized that a low-fear behavioral phenotype due to bilateral lesion of the amygdala would be associated with significant 5-HT2A receptor changes. Thus, we used [ 18 F]altanserin positron emission tomography (PET) referenced to radioligand plasma levels and corrected for partial volume effects to quantify the spatial distribution of 5-HT2A receptor binding potential (BPP) in a rare patient with UrbachWiethe disease and selective bilateral amygdala calcification damage relative to 10 healthy control subjects. Consistent with our a priori hypothesis, we observed a 70 % global decrease in 5-HT 2A receptor BP P in the UrbachWiethe patient relative to controls. Thus, brain abnormalities in this patient are not restricted to the amygdala, but extend to overall 5-HT neurotransmission via 5-HT2A receptors. Our findings provide important insights into the molecular architecture of human anxiety behaviors and suggest the 5-HT 2A receptor as a promising pharmacological target to control pathological anxiety.

Auxin Polar Transport 1s Essential for the Establishment of Bilateral Symmetry during Early Plant Embryogenesis

  CiteSeer

Summary: We used an in vitro culture system to investigate the effects of three auxin polar transport inhibitors (9-hydroxyfluorene-9-carboxylic acid, trans-cinnamic acid, and 2,3,5-triiodobenzoic acid) on the development of early globular to heart-shaped stage embryos of lndian mustard (Brassica juncea) plants. Although the effective concentrations vary with the different inhibitors, all of them induced the formation of fused cotyledons in globular (660 pm) but not heart-shaped embryos. Inhibitor-treated Brassica embryos phenocopy embryos of the Arabidopsis pin-formed mutant pinl-7, which has reduced auxin polar transport activity in inflorescence axes, as well as embryos of the Arabidopsis emb30 (gnom) mutant. These results indicate that the polar transport of auxin in early globular embryos is essential for the establishment of bilateral symmetry during plant embryogenesis. Based on these observations, we propose two possible models for the action of auxin during cotyledon formation.

Distributed Online Leader Selection in the Bilateral Teleoperation of Multiple UAVs

  CiteSeer

Summary: Abstract For several applications like data collection, surveillance, search and rescue and exploration of wide areas, the use of a group of simple robots rather than a single complex robot has proven to be very effective and promising, and the problem of coordinating a group of agents has received a lot of attention over the last years. In this paper, we consider the challenge of establishing a bilateral force-feedback teleoperation channel between a human operator (the master side) and a remote multi-robot system (the slave side) where a special agent, the leader, is selected and directly controlled by the master. In particular, we study the problem of distributed online optimal leader selection, i.e., how to choose, and possibly change, the leader online in order to maximize some suitable criteria related to the tracking performance of the whole group w.r.t. the master commands. Human/hardware-in-theloop simulation results with a group of UAVs support the theoretical claims of the paper. I.

  CiteSeer

Summary: Female athletes are substantially more susceptible than males to suffer acute non-contact anterior cruciate ligament injury. A limited number of studies have identified possible biomechanical risk factors that differ between genders. The effect of fatigue on the biomechanics of landing has also been inadequately investigated. The objective of the study was to examine the effect of gender and fatigue on peak values of biomechanical variables during landing from a jump. Thirty-two recreational athletes performed bilateral drop jump landings from a 40 cm platform. Kinetic, kinematic and electromyographic data were collected before and after a functional fatigue protocol. Females landed with 9 greater peak knee valgus (p = 0.001) and 140% greater maximum vertical ground reaction forces (p = 0.003) normalized to body weight compared to males. Fatigue increased peak foot abduction by 1.7 (p = 0.042), peak rectus femoris activity by 27 % (p = 0.018), and peak vertical ground reaction force (p = 0.038) by 20%. The results of the study suggest that landing with increased peak knee valgus and vertical ground reaction force may contribute to increased risk for knee injury in females. Fatigue caused significant but small changes on some biomechanical variables. Anterior cruciate ligament injury prevention programs should focus on implementing strategies to effectively teach females to control knee valgus and ground reaction force. Key words: Anterior cruciate ligament injury, injury prevention, knee injury, sports biomechanics.

Nonlinear normal modes of a two degree of freedom oscillator with a bilateral elastic stop

  Nonlinear Sciences (arXiv)

Summary: A study of the non linear modes of a two degree of freedom mechanical system with bilateral elastic stop is considered. The issue related to the non-smoothness of the impact force is handled through a regularization technique. In order to obtain the Nonlinear Normal Mode (NNM), the harmonic balance method with a large number of harmonics, combined with the asymptotic numerical method, is used to solve the regularized problem. These methods are present in the software "package" MANLAB. The results are validated from periodic orbits obtained analytically in the time domain by direct integration of the non regular problem. The two NNMs starting respectively from the two linear normal modes of the associated underlying linear system are discussed. The energy-frequency plot is used to present a global vision of the behavior of the modes. The dynamics of the modes are also analyzed comparing each periodic orbits and modal lines. The first NNM shows an elaborate dynamics with the occurrence of multiple impacts per period. On the other hand, the second NNM presents a more simple dynamics with a localization of the displacement on the first mass.

Navigation around London by a taxi driver with bilateral hippocampal lesions

  CiteSeer

Summary: The time-scale of hippocampal involvement in supporting episodic memory remains a keenly debated topic, with disagreement over whether its role is temporary or permanent. Recently, there has been interest in how navigation by hippocampally-compromised patients in environments learned long ago speaks to this issue. However, identifying patients with damage that is primarily hippocampal, control subjects matched for navigation experience, and testing their in situ navigation, present substantial problems. We met these challenges by using a highly accurate and interactive virtual reality simulation of central London (UK) to assess the navigation ability of a licensed London taxi driver who had sustained bilateral hippocampal damage. In this test, patient TT and matched control taxi drivers drove a virtual London taxi along the streets they had first learned 40 years before. We found that the hippocampus is not required for general orientation in the city either in first person or survey perspectives, detailed topographical knowledge of landmarks and their spatial relationships, or even for active navigation along some routes. However, in his navigation TT was very reliant on main artery or A roads, and became lost when navigation depended instead on non-A roads. We conclude that the hippocampus in humans is necessary for facilitating navigation in places learned long ago, particularly where complex largescale spaces are concerned, and successful navigation requires access to detailed spatial representations.

Summary: This paper develops a fuzzy constraint based model for bilateral multi-issue negotiation in trading environments. In particular, we are concerned with the principled negotiation approach in which agents seek to strike a fair deal for both parties, but which, nevertheless, maximises their own payoff. Thus, there are elements of both competition and cooperation in the negotiation (hence semi-competitive environments) . One of the key intuitions of the approach is that there is often more than one option that can satisfy the interests of both parties. So, if the opponent cannot accept an offer then the proponent should endeavour to find an alternative that is equally acceptable to it, but more acceptable to the opponent. That is, the agent should make a trade-off. Only if such a trade-off is not possible should the agent make a concession. Against this background, our model ensures the agents reach a deal that is fair (Pareto-optimal) for both parties if such a solution exists. Moreover, this is achieved by minimising the amount of private information that is revealed. The model uses prioritised fuzzy constraints to represent trade-offs between the different possible values of the negotiation issues and to indicate how concessions should be made when they are necessary. Also by using constraints to express negotiation proposals, the model can cover the negotiation space more ef- ficiently since each exchange covers a region rather than a single point (which is what most existing models deal with). In addition, by incorporating the notion of a reward into our negotiation model, the agents can sometimes reach agreements that would not otherwise be possible.

Comparison of the effects of bilateral orbital prefrontal cortex lesions and amygdala lesions on emotional responses in rhesus monkeys

  CiteSeer

Summary: The present study examines the effects of bilateral orbital prefrontal cortex (PFo) lesions on monkeys emotional responses in two different contexts: in the presence of a rubber snake and in the presence of a human intruder. For comparison, we also assessed the responses of rhesus monkeys with selective amygdala lesions on these same tasks. Monkeys with PFo lesions, like those with amygdala lesions, displayed blunted emotional responses to the fake snake. Unlike monkeys with amygdala lesions, however, monkeys with PFo lesions displayed more mild aggression than controls in the presence of a human intruder. The findings support the idea that the PFo helps integrate sensory signals in the service of choosing among competing responses. In addition, they point to a divergence of the roles of the PFo and amygdala in responding to a social stimulus, the human intruder. Key words: fear; response selection; decision making; aggression; inhibitory control; phobia

Chronic bilateral dislocation of temporomandibular joint

  CiteSeer

Summary: Dislocation of the condyle of the mandible is a common condition that may occur in an acute or chronic form. It is characterised by inability to close the mouth with or without pain. Dislocation has to be differentiated from subluxation which is a self reducible condition. Dislocation can occur in any direction with anterior dislocation being the commonest one. Various predisposing factors have been associated with dislocation like muscle fatigue and spasm, the defect in the bony surface like shallow articular eminence, and laxity of the capsular ligament. People with defect in collagen synthesis like Ehler Danlos syndrome, Marfan syndrome are said to be genetically predisposed to this condition. Various treatment modalities have been used ranging from conservative techniques to surgical methods. Acute dislocations can be reduced manually or with conservative approach and recurrent and chronic cases can be reduced by surgical intervention. Though the dislocation in our case was 4 months a simple manual reduction proved to be successful. We believe that manual reduction can be attempted as first line of treatment prior to surgical intervention.

Summary: While broader information about international transactions might seem desirable, such an analysis not only would be unwieldy because of the number of countries involved but also would require making generalized conclusions of limited value. Furthermore, to treat each of the exchange rates equally would be misleading. A 10 percent depreciation of the dollar against the currency of a U.S. major trading partner would obviously have a much larger impact than a 10 percent depreciation against the currency of a minor partner. Clearly, there is a need for a tool for summarizing the movements in the value of the dollar. The question, then, is how best to represent the movements for analysis. One approach would be to track a small set of bilateral exchange rates that includes

Passive Bilateral Control of a Teleoperation System Considering Hysteresis Nonlinearity of Slave Robot

  CiteSeer

Summary: Abstract. The slave robot of the macro-micro teleoperation system presented in this paper is a 1-DOF piezo actuator including hysteresis nonlinearity. This nonlinear behavior makes robot control a complex task. In this research the nonlinear and uncertain dynamics of the slave robot has been entered directly into the teleoperation control loop. The LuGre friction model is used as the estimator of the hysteresis loop to cancel out this undesirable term. A 2-DOF master-slave system is decomposed into two 1-DOF systems: a shape system representing the master-slave position coordination, and a locked system representing the dynamics of the coordinated system. For making the closed-loop teleoperation system passive against dynamic parameter uncertainty and force measurement inaccuracy, four virtual flywheels are designed. In this way, the energy generated by troublesome terms inside controllers (i.e. the terms which may endanger passivity of the controller) would be taken from the bounded kinetic energy deposited on these flywheels. Simulations are performed to show effectiveness of the proposed controllers.

Experiments of passivity-based bilateral aerial teleoperation of a group of uavs with decentralized velocity synchronization

  CiteSeer

Summary: Abstract In this paper, we present an experimental validation of a novel decentralized passivity-based control strategy for teleoperating a group of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs): the slave side, consisting of the UAVs, is endowed with large group autonomy by allowing time-varying topology and interrobot/obstacle collision avoidance. The master side, represented by a human operator, controls the group motion and receives suitable force feedback cues informing her/him about the remote slave motion status. Passivity theory is exploited for guaranteeing stability of the slave side and of the overall teleoperation channel. Results of experiments involving the use of 4 quadcopters are reported and discussed, confirming the soundness of the paper theoretical claims. I.

A Noval Approach of Altered Cast Technique in Bilateral Partial Maxillectomy Patient with Severely Restricted Mouth Opening

  CiteSeer

Summary: Copyright 2011 Shuchi Tripathi et al. This is an open access article distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Patients with extensive head and neck injuries due to trauma and/or extensive surgical procedures often exhibit a severely limited ability to open the mouth. For the dentist involved in prosthodontic treatment of such patients, restricted mouth opening commonly leads to compromised impressions and prostheses especially in cases where both hard and soft palatal parts have been resected. In prosthodontic treatment, the loaded impression tray is the largest item requiring intraoral placement. During impression procedures, wide mouth opening is required for proper tray insertion and alignment. This is not possible in patients with restricted mouth opening, so a modification of the standard impression procedure is often necessary to accomplish this fundamental step in the fabrication of a successful prosthesis. An alteration in the final impression procedure was made using altered cast technique for fabricating an obturator prosthesis with soft palate extension, and the result obtained was quite satisfactory. 1.

DOI: 10.1037//0894-4105.15.1.30 Impaired Perception of Facial Emotions Following Bilateral Damage to the Anterior Temporal Lobe

  CiteSeer

Summary: Two patients (E.P. and G.T.) were previously described with damage to amygdala and anterior temporal cortex (S.B. Hamann et al., 1996). Both rated emotions in facial expressions normally (the rating task) when the data analysis followed a method that had revealed an impairment in the well-studied patient S.M. The present study reports findings for a 3rd patient (G.P.) with the rating task and reexamines the data for E.P. and G.T. All 3 patients were also given a labeling task in which they selected, from a list of 6 words, which word they thought best described the emotion expressed by a face. All 3 patients were unmistakably impaired on both tasks. However, the impairment exhibited by these patients is different from S.M.'s impairment. The difference may depend on the etiology (congenital vs. adult-onset lesion) or the site of the damage (relatively selective amygdala damage vs. damage to amygdala as well as anterior temporal cortex). The amygdala has been implicated in emotion and emotional memory in humans and experimental animals (Le-Doux, 1995; LaBar, LeDoux, Spencer, & Phelps, 1995; Morris et al., 1996). A number of recent studies have

Summary: The most frequent neurodegenerative diseases (NDs) are Alzheimers disease (AD), Parkinsons disease (PD), and frontotemporal lobar degeneration associated with protein TDP-43 (FTLDTDP). Neuropathologically, NDs are characterized by abnormal intracellular and extra-cellular protein deposits and by disease-specific neuronal death. Practically all terminal stages of NDs are clinically associated with dementia. Therefore, major attention was directed to protein deposits and neuron loss in supratentorial (telencephalic) brain regions in the course of NDs. This was also true for PD, although the pathological hallmark of PD is degeneration of pigmented neurons of the brainstems substantia nigra (SN). However, PD pathophysiology was explained by dopamine depletion in the telencephalic basal ganglia due to insufficiency and degeneration of the projection neurons located in SN. In a similar line of argumentation AD- and FTLD-related clinical deficits were exclusively explained by supratentorial allo- and neo-cortical laminar neuronal necrosis. Recent comprehensive studies in AD and PD early stages found considerable and unexpected involvement of brainstem nuclei, which could have the potential to profoundly change our present concepts on origin, spread, and early clinical diagnosis of these diseases. In contrast

Detecting and localizing the foci in human epileptic seizures

  Nonlinear Sciences (arXiv)

Summary: We consider the electrical signals recorded from a subdural array of electrodes placed on the pial surface of the brain for chronic evaluation of epileptic patients before surgical resection. A simple and computationally fast method to analyze the interictal phase synchrony between such electrodes is introduced and developed with the aim of detecting and localizing the foci of the epileptic seizures. We evaluate the method by comparing the results of surgery to the localization predicted here. We find an indication of good correspondence between the success or failure in the surgery and the agreement between our identification and the regions actually operated on.

Massive Intracerebral Hemorrhage Caused by a Cavernous Malformation

  CiteSeer

Summary: We present a rare case of massive intracerebral hemorrhage resulting from a small, superficially-located supratentorial cavernous malformation, or cavernoma. These lesions rarely lead to massive, life-threatening intracerebral hemorrhages. A 17-year-old female presented with a 3-week history of declining mental status. Brain computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a sizable intracranial hemorrhage, within the right occipital region, associated with a small nodule at the hematomas posterior margin. An emergency operation removed the entire hematoma and nodule. Histological examination of the nodule was compatible with a diagnosis of cavernous malformation. The patients post-operative course was uneventful. Key Words: Cavernous malformation Intracerebral hemorrhage.

Isolated nuclear oculomotor nerve syndrome due to mesencephalic hematoma

  CiteSeer

Summary: Unilateral third nerve palsy with bilateral superior rectus paresis and bilateral ptosis is a typical condition for nuclear oculomotor nerve syndrome. We report a case of nuclear oculomotor nerve syndrome due to midbrain hemorrhage, as a rare cause. A 73-year-old man presented with an abrupt onset of double vision and difficulty opening his eyes. He had uncontrolled hypertension in his history. Neurological examination revealed right oculomotor palsy with impairment of bilateral upward gaze and bilateral ptosis. MRI showed a mesencephalic area of increased T1 signal and decreased T2 signal consistent with a subacute hematoma. It is emphasized that isolated mesencephalic hemorrhage may be the cause of the nuclear oculomotor nerve syndrome without associated neurological signs. Key words: Mesencephalic hematoma; nuclear oculomotor nerve syndrome.

One reason countries pay their debts: renegotiation and international trade

  CiteSeer

Summary: This paper estimates the effect of sovereign debt renegotiation on international trade. Sovereigns may fear negative trade consequences from default for a number of reasons; creditors may want to deter default by debtors, or trade finance may dry up after default. To estimate the effect of default on trade, I use an empirical gravity model of bilateral trade and a large panel data set covering fifty years and over 200 trading partners. The model controls for a host of factors that influence bilateral trade flows, including income and the incidence of IMF programs. Using the dates of sovereign debt renegotiations conducted through the Paris Club as a proxy measure for sovereign default, I find that renegotiation is associated with an economically and statistically significant decline in bilateral trade between a debtor and its creditors. The decline in bilateral trade is approximately eight percent a year and persists for around fifteen years.

Does a Currency Union Affect Trade? The Time Series Evidence. European Economic Review

  CiteSeer

Summary: Does leaving a currency union reduce international trade? We answer this question using a large annual panel data set covering 217 countries from 1948 through 1997. During this sample a large number of countries left currency unions; they experienced economically and statistically significant declines in bilateral trade, after accounting for other factors. Assuming symmetry, we estimate that a pair of countries that starts to use a common currency experiences a doubling in bilateral trade.

It is found that while a number of commercial disputes between the United States and the European Union have acquired a high public profile in recent years, they only constitute a fraction of overall bilateral trade and investment. Moreover, there remains considerable potential for gains from further bilateral trade liberalization in years ahead. 3

Are international R&D spillovers trade-related? Analyzing spillovers among randomly matched trade partners

  CiteSeer

Summary: In this paper, I analyze recent findings by Coe and Helpman (1995) of trade-related international R&D spillovers. I show generally that randomly created bilateral trade shares also give rise to large estimated international R&D spillovers; often, in fact, to larger estimated spillover effects which are more precisely estimated than by employing the true bilateral trade shares. This casts some doubt on the earlier results in the literature. 1.

Counterparty Risk and the Impact of Collateralization in CDS Contracts

  CERN Preprints

Summary: We analyze the counterparty risk embedded in CDS contracts, in presence of a bilateral margin agreement. First, we investigate the pricing of collateralized counterparty risk and we derive the bilateral Credit Valuation Adjustment (CVA), unilateral Credit Valuation Adjustment (UCVA) and Debt Valuation Adjustment (DVA). We propose a model for the collateral by incorporating all related factors such as the thresholds, haircuts and margin period of risk. We derive the dynamics of the bilateral CVA in a general form with related jump martingales. We also introduce the Spread Value Adjustment (SVA)\\ indicating the counterparty risk adjusted spread. Counterparty risky and the counterparty risk-free spread dynamics are derived and the dynamics of the SVA is found as a consequence. We finally employ a Markovian copula model for default intensities and illustrate our findings with numerical results.

A multilateral filtering method applied to airplane runway image

  CERN Preprints

Summary: By considering the features of the airport runway image filtering, an improved bilateral filtering method was proposed which can remove noise with edge preserving. Firstly the steerable filtering decomposition is used to calculate the sub-band parameters of 4 orients, and the texture feature matrix is then obtained from the sub-band local median energy. The texture similar, the spatial closer and the color similar functions are used to filter the image.The effect of the weighting function parameters is qualitatively analyzed also. In contrast with the standard bilateral filter and the simulation results for the real airport runway image show that the multilateral filtering is more effective than the standard bilateral filtering.

Three Cases of Manifesting Female Carriers in Patients with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

  CiteSeer

Summary: ? The authors have no financial conflicts of interest. Duchenne muscular dystrophy usually affects males. However, females are also affected in rare instances. Approximately 8 % of female Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) carriers are manifesting carriers and have muscle weakness to some extent. We investigated the clinical features of 3 female patients with dystrophinopathy diagnosed by clinical, pathological, and genetic studies at our neuromuscular disease clinic. The onset age of manifesting symptoms varied (8-28 years). Muscle weakness grade varied as follows: patient 1 showed asymmetrical bilateral proximal upper and lower extremities weakness, patient 2 showed asymmetrical bilateral upper extremities weakness similar to scapulohumoral muscular dystrophy, and patient 3 had only bilateral asymmetric proximal lower extremities weakness. Two patients had familial histories of DMD (their sons were diagnosed with DMD), but the 1 remaining patient had no familial history of DMD. The serum creatine kinase level was elevated in all patients, but it was not correlated with

Adult-onset bulbar ptosis in Joubert syndrome

  CiteSeer

Summary: Abstract: In this case report, we describe a case of adult-onset bulbar ptosis in a patient with Joubert syndrome. Joubert syndrome is a rare neurodevelopmental disorder with malformations in cerebellum and brainstem. Many ocular abnormalities have been noted in Joubert syndrome, but the association of this syndrome with adult-onset ptosis has not been described to date. This 24-year-old Joubert patient developed a cerebrospinal fluid cyst in her midbrain. She had signs of bilateral third nerve palsy and abducens palsy in the left eye. The bilateral central third nerve palsy causing functional blindness secondary to severe bilateral levator palsy was treated successfully with silicone sling frontalis suspension, as the seventh nerve nucleus was not involved.

Efficient purification protocols using iSWAP gates in solid-state qubits

  CERN Preprints

Summary: We show an efficient purification protocol in solid-state qubits by replacing the usual bilateral CNOT gate by the bilateral iSWAP gate. We also show that this replacement can be applied to breeding and hashing protocols, which are useful for quantum state purification. These replacements reduce the number of fragile and cumbersome two-qubit operations, making more feasible quantum-information-processing with solid-state qubits. As examples, we also present quantitative analyses for the required time to perform state purification using either superconducting or semiconducting qubits.

Markov processes and generalized Schroedinger equations

  Quantum Physics (arXiv)

Summary: Starting from the forward and backward infinitesimal generators of bilateral, time-homogeneous Markov processes, the self-adjoint Hamiltonians of the generalized Schroedinger equations are first introduced by means of suitable Doob transformations. Then, by broadening with the aid of the Dirichlet forms the results of the Nelson stochastic mechanics, we prove that it is possible to associate bilateral, and time-homogeneous Markov processes to the wave functions stationary solutions of our generalized Schroedinger equations. Particular attention is then paid to the special case of the Levy-Schroedinger equations and to their associated Levy-type Markov processes, and to a few examples of Cauchy background noise.
