Complex Network Theory and Its Application Research on P2P Networks

networks, presented search method of information resources with combination of preferential attachment mechanism and interest attenuation mechanism in rumors dissemination. 4.4 Other models Not confined to the traditional theory of complex networks, from application-specific characteristics of P2P networks, the literature [ 25 ] tried to build an appropriate statistical model to analyze the statistics features of user behavior and its impact. Using number of shared files owned by the user as the main parameter, the model characterizes evolutionary process

Twitter Users’ Privacy Concerns: What do Their Accounts’ First Names Tell Us?

computational cost will be higher than make a simple search on a name database. The accuracy of both methods, tweets text analysis, and the gender prediction strategies (profile, name, and description analysis), may vary, but the result will be substantially constant. Inspired by Krempeaux work (2013) , Herdağdelen published an n-gram data set of Twitter messages, which contains gender of the author and time of posting tags. In order to infer the gender of the author, Herdağdelen used the first name of the users to infer his/her gender, at least, for the ones that provide

GPR surveying method as a tool for geodetic verification of GESUT database of utilities in the light of BSI PAS128

( Regulation, 2011 ) describe the principles of direct surveys, however, there is no explicit reference to indirect methods of surveying hidden components of utility networks. The only record in the regulation concerns elevation issues and is extremely laconic (Par. 36 (1)(3)). The British specification PAS 128 ( BSI, 2014 ) systematises the proper detection of utilities placed at a depth of up to 3 metres. It is based on a four-level division of the accuracy levels of the captured information – from D to A ( Fig. 1 ). The higher the accepted type of identification, the

The history of public health use of fluorides in caries prevention

. 2 Methods 2.1 Search Strategy We systematically searched the PubMed database on the preventive role of F in PH, published from 1984 to 2014. The search was conducted in February 2015, and revised in September 2015. The search process consisted of four steps ( Figure 1 ), namely: A basic search with included Medical Subject Headings (MESH): fluorides, dentistry, community health. We specified the search by reviewing the articles that also included the following words in the title or abstract: caries and preventive or prevention (Step 1). The first

Utility of electronic medical recordbased fibrosis scores in predicting advanced cirrhosis in patients with hepatitic C virus infection

Introduction Fibrosis staging represents a critical step in the evaluation of patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. It identifies patients with advanced disease stages who require screening for complications such as hepatocellular cancer or varices, while also being used to prioritize patients for treatment with direct-acting antiviral drugs. [ 1 - 3 ] The conventional staging process typically involves multiple steps, including laboratory testing, liver imaging, elastography or liver biopsy. In turn, this process requires numerous
