National Cheng Kung University is a research-led comprehensive university in Tainan City, Taiwan. In Chinese, its name is shortened to 成大 . Cheng Kung is named after Cheng Ch'eng-Kung , who defeated the Dutch and founded the Kingdom of Tungning in Taiwan. NCKU is one of the most prestigious universities in Taiwan, with a high reputation in science, engineering, medicine, management, planning and design. According to US News and World Report - 2014 Global Universities Ranking , NCKU was ranked #22 Best Global University for Engineering and Computer Science. Times Higher Education- QS World University Rankings and Performance Ranking of Scientific Papers for World Universities, NCKU was ranked second or third among all universities in Taiwan. Many surveys throughout the years have shown that its students are most desired by Taiwanese companies. NCKU has 9 colleges, 40 departments, 82 graduate institutes, and 54 research centers, and it is also a major university, educational, and area-network center in Taiwan.NCKU is among the four universities of Taiwan's Public Ivy - the Taiwan Comprehensive University System.

A signal process system and the method for the same and a biological resistance detection device and element used to perform corresponding signal process for sensory signal sensed by a sensor, wherein a minor AC electrical signal is injected into a biological tissue to be measured in order to sense the sensory signal of the biological tissue to be measured by means of the principle of Ohms Law. Moreover, the sensory signal may be processed to restore a biological property of the measured biological tissue and to create an equivalent circuit parameter model representative of the biological property.

The present invention relates to a pharmaceutical composition for elevating radiation-sensitivity of cancer cells, which comprises: a nanoparticle containing with a first element, which is iron, copper, or the combination thereof; and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier, wherein the nanoparticle is a metal nanoparticle, an alloy nanoparticle, or a metal nanoparticle with core-shell structure. In addition, the present invention provides a detection method to detect radiation-sensitivity of the cancer cells through different modalities such as CT or MRI due to its native high CT number and magnetic property. Furthermore, the present invention provides a pharmaceutical composition for elevating radiation-sensitivity of the cancer cells through preferential uptake of the nanoparticle, in order to enhance the radiation-sensitivity of the cancer cells and improve the efficiency of radiation therapy to the cancer cells.

A switchless network topology system for parallel computation is provided. The switchless network topology system includes a plurality of nodes, of which one node communicates with another node according to a routing table, where the creation of the routing table includes the following steps: calculating a shortest path of transmission paths between two nodes of the nodes, where the shortest path has no relay node or at least one relay node between the two nodes; removing the transmission path between a starting node and a first relay node of the shortest path and identifying another shortest path between the starting node and the destination node; repeating the step of removing and identifying to identify other shortest paths between the starting node and the destination node; and creating the routing table based on every shortest path between any starting node and any destination node of the nodes.

In a metrology sampling method, various index values that can detect various status changes of a process tool (such as maintenance operation, parts changing, parameter adjustment, etc.), and/or information abnormalities of the process tool (such as abnormal process data, parameter drift/shift, abnormal metrology data, etc.) appear in a manufacturing process are applied to develop an intelligent sampling decision (ISD) scheme for reducing sampling rate while VM accuracy is still sustained. The indices includes a reliance Index (RI), a global similarity index (GSI), a process data quality index (DQI
