Dementia of the Alzheimer type is a progressive, fatal neurodegenerative condition characterized by deterioration in cognition and memory, progressive impairment in the ability to carry out activities of daily living, and a number of neuropsychiatric symptoms. This narrative review summarizes the literature regarding descriptive epidemiology, clinical course, and characteristic neuropathological changes of dementia of the Alzheimer type. Although there are no definitive imaging or laboratory tests, except for brain biopsy, for diagnosis, brief screening instruments and neuropsychiatric test batteries used to assess the disease are discussed. Insufficient evidence exists for the use of biomarkers in clinical practice for diagnosis or disease management, but promising discoveries are summarized. Optimal treatment requires both nonpharmacological and pharmacological interventions, yet none have been shown to modify the disease’s clinical course. This review describes the current available options and summarizes promising new avenues for treatment. Issues related to the care of persons with dementia of the Alzheimer type, including caregiver burden, longterm care, and the proliferation of dementia special care units, are discussed. Although advances have been made, more research is needed to address the gaps in our understanding of the disease. Alzheimer disease; dementia; drug therapy; review
Adaptive Discontinuous Galerkin Finite Element Methods for Compressible Fluid Flows
 SIAM J. Sci. Comput
"... this paper is to discuss the a posteriori error analysis and adaptive mesh design for discontinuous Galerkin finite element approximations to systems of conservation laws. In Section 2, we introduce the model problem and formulate its discontinuous Galerkin finite element approximation. Section 3 is ..."

"... We present an overview of the SCIRun2 parallel component framework. SCIRun2 is based on the Common Component Architecture (CCA)[2, 5] and the SCI Institutes’ SCIRun[10]. SCIRun2 supports distributed computing through distributed objects. Parallel components are managed transparently over an MxN meth ..."

Oscillation of higher order difference equations via comparison
 Glasnik Matematički. Serija III 39(59) (2004
"... Abstract. In this paper we shall present some new oscillation criteria for dierence equations of the form mx(n) + q(n)f(x[n ]) = 0 and mx(n) = q(t)f(x[n ]) + p(n)F (x[n + ]) via comparison with some dierence equations of lower order whose oscillatory behavior are known. 1. ..."

Duality applied to the complexity of matrix multiplication
 SIAM J. COMPUT
