Coordinating Phased Activities while Maintaining Progress [chapter]

Tiago Cogumbreiro, Francisco Martins, Vasco Thudichum Vasconcelos
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In order to develop reliable applications for parallel machines, programming languages and systems need to provide for flexible parallel programming coordination techniques.  ...  Judgement Δ; Λ Q : Γ checks the phase difference and the registered activity names for each phaser in Q, while building a context Γ for Q. We have two rules for activities.  ...  An activity l is unblocked when it has arrived at all phasers and each bound allows progress (i.e., the bound is larger than the difference between the current phase and the phaser's phase).  ...

Coordination of mitochondrial bioenergetics with G1phase cell cycle progression

Stefan M. Schieke, J. Philip McCoy Jr., Toren Finkel
2008 Cell Cycle  
In conclusion, our data suggests a coupling of mitochondrial bioenergetics and progression and points to the mTOR signaling pathway as a G 1 potential molecular coordinator of these two processes.  ...  Biochemical and functional studies demonstrate that ΔΨ m L and ΔΨ m H cells display the distinct characteristics of early and late phase, respectively.  ...  In contrast, in serum-free, mitogen-free conditions, the ΔΨ m L cells were predominantly maintained in G 1 , while under these conditions, the ΔΨ m H cells progressed to S phase entry.  ...
