    Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) is an IEEE 802.16 standard-based broadband cellular wireless solution in which orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) is the method of sharing communication resources among large numbers of users. This is in contrast with multiple access technologies such as frequency division multiple access (FDMA), time division multiple access (TDMA), and code division multiple access (CDMA) that were dominant in 1G (first generation cellular systems), 2G, 2.5G, and 3G cellular networks. As the demand for wireless communications grows almost exponentially, the ability to access these networks becomes an important commodity. This is particularly the case in cellular networks where the demand for broadband access is pushing the industry to advance into the next generation of wireless mobile networks. View full abstract»

    Liver disease is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality, which, according to Hommond et al. (2006), affects 25 million patients in the United States and results in over 25,000 deaths per year. There are many conditions that lead to acute or chronic liver failure. Acute causes include acetaminophen overdose, reaction to medications, and ingestion of toxins, such as poisonous mushrooms. Chronic causes include viral infections, such as Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C, long-term alcohol consumption, and genetic or acquired conditions, such as hemochromatosis and Wilson's disease. Patients suffering from liver failure experience jaundice (yellowing of the skin) and encephalopathy secondary to bilirubin accumulation, bleeding diatheses secondary to loss of the liver's ability to produce coagulation factors, and generalized edema (anasarca) due to the failed liver's inability to produce proteins. Currently the only available curative therapy for patients suffering from liver failure is liver transplantation. View full abstract»
