  • Patent number: 11517270
    Abstract: A contrast-enhanced digital tomosynthesis system with a source configured to emit penetrating particles toward an object, a detector configured to acquire a series of projection images of the object in response to the penetrating particles from the source, a positioning apparatus configured to position the source relative to the object and the detector, and an imaging system coupled to the source, the detector, and the positioning apparatus. The imaging system is configured to control the positioning apparatus to position the source and detector relative to the object, control the source and the detector to acquire the series of projection images, and construct a tomographic volume capable of exhibiting super-resolution morphology and contrast-enhancement arising from injection of an exogenous contrast agent from data representing the acquired series of projection images or a subset thereof.

  • Patent number: 11195175
    Abstract: A approach is proposed to support typed payment graph-based electronic payment processing. First, schemas for one or more typed payment graphs used for a plurality types of electronic payment processing are defined declaratively. Upon receiving an electronic payment request from a client, a payment processing engine retrieves a schema of a typed payment graph corresponding to the request and processes the electronic payment by traversing states and edges in an instance created from the schema of the typed payment graph. The electronic payment only transitions from one state to another if a valid edge exists between them and a precondition on the edge is met by the processing results of the electronic payment at the state. While processing the electronic payment, the payment processing engine automatically generates an audit trail for the electronic payment based on its states and transitions for real time recovery and/or analysis.

  • Publication number: 20210011772
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems, non-transitory computer-readable media, and methods of a process management system that improves memory management and resource utilization on host devices that utilize a pre-fork worker process model (e.g., uWSGI). For example, the process management system can utilize the memory consumption of the host device to determine how many worker processes to terminate as well as which worker processes to terminate. In addition, the process management system can utilize adaptive respawning to determine when to respawn each of the terminated worker processes.

  • Publication number: 20190392408
    Abstract: A new approach is proposed that contemplates systems and methods to support distributed electronic payment processing based on a hierarchical payment graph. Specifically, a distributed electronic payment system comprising a plurality of distributed payment engines/processors. Upon receiving an electronic payment request from a client device, each distributed payment engine of the distributed electronic payment system is configured to handle one stage of the electronic payment processing lifecycle by traversing states and edges in a portion of the hierarchical payment graph assigned to the distributed payment engine.

  • Patent number: 10347225
    Abstract: A cello stand system for holding a cello that includes a base; a first and second arm, where each arm comprises at least one cello engagement region on an inner-side of the arm; where each arm is attached in an upright orientation along the length of the base; and where the inner-sides of the first and second arms and a top surface of the base define a cello holding cavity. The cello stand system functions to engage with a cello across a rib of the upper or lower bout to hold a cello on its side in a horizontal position.

  • Patent number: 8954806
    Abstract: A method that determines the system impact of single event upset (SEU) and a single event upset (SEU) wrapper that controls a SEU controller is disclosed. The method injects faults into a component (e.g. FPGA, ASIC) of an operational system that is carrying live traffic and monitors the system's response to the faults to determine the impact of SEU on the system. The SEU wrapper sends the SEU controller a pattern scheme that includes information indicating when, where, how often, and/or how long to inject bursts of one or more faults into memory of the component of the system. A burst of faults contains faults that are consecutively injected into the array of memory blocks. After each fault in a burst is injected, one or more errors in one or more memory elements are detected and/or corrected. Information regarding the detection and/or the correction of an error is updated using registers that store counters. After injecting a burst of faults, the SEU controller waits for a predetermined amount of time.
