    Hospital information systems provide physicians the capability to review patient data online on a 24-hour basis. The complex interface logistics of such systems, however, can discourage physician usage. In an attempt to improve the user interface by minimizing hierarchical menu navigation, the MD Rounds Report program was developed and implemented in June of 1992 as an adjunct to the Physician Sub...

    The most widely accepted and used definition of probability is the relative-frequency definition. Strict adherence to this interpretation of probability requires the empirical development of statistical models from measured data. Using this definition of probability usually results in statistical models that are adequate for predicting the occurrence of the most common events, i.e., events near th... View full abstract»

    In many applications a task is repeatedly executed on several sets of data in a pipeline fashion. For example, image processing software is frequently executed on a sequence of images. Due to varying semantic content in the data, each subtask of the overall task may experience variations in execution time for different instances of the data. The authors consider the problem of efficiently executin... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (372 KB)

    Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) is the emerging standard for broadband networking (B-ISDN) with its ability to support integrated traffic (data/voice/image/video). Information is exchanged in ATM networks by prior establishment of connection between source and destination(s). This brings up the question of how one can interconnect connectionless oriented LANs and MANs (non-ATM based networks) wit... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (292 KB)

    One problem with digital communication laboratories is the lack of flexibility. Current laboratories either use specialized equipment with little or no ability to change system parameters or extremely general equipment with limited modulation types and pulse shaping options. One solution to this problem is to use digital signal processing (DSP) techniques. DSP systems are extremely flexible and pr... View full abstract»
