||WO||WO/2015/009314 - DOWNHOLE FLUID FLOW CONTROL SYSTEM AND METHOD HAVING AUTONOMOUS CLOSURE||22.01.2015||
||PCT/US2013/051251||HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES, INC.||VEIT, Jan|
A fluid flow control system includes a flow control assembly having a fluid flow path for a flowing fluid. First and second flow control components are disposed in parallel in the fluid flow path, the first having a positive flowrate response to decreasing fluid viscosity and the second having a negative flowrate response to decreasing fluid viscosity. A valve is disposed in the fluid flow path in downstream series with the first and second flow control components. The valve has first and second inlet paths for fluid from the first and second flow control components, respectively, such that decreasing the fluid viscosity of the flowing fluid increases a ratio of the flowrate through the first control component to the flowrate through the second flow control component and such that when the ratio reaches a predetermined level, the valve autonomously shifts from an open position to a closed position.

||PCT/US2013/050870||SPINELLA IP HOLDINGS, INC.||GADDY, William, L.|
A method and system for obtaining a histogram and related statistical values from a data set of texels is disclosed. A processing device receives from a first buffer, a data set of texels. The data set has a dimensionality D of at least two and each texel contains a value. The processing device sorts the data set into a point list of coordinates, wherein a point in the point list corresponds to a texel location in the data set. The processing device reduces the dimensionality of the point list by arranging points in the point list according to an N-1 dimensional dominancy. The processing device performs a raster operation on each associated value of the arranged points to obtain at least one value. The processing device is to output the at least one value to a second buffer. The processing device may be a graphics processing unit.

||PCT/US2013/050547||HEWLETT-PACKARD DEVELOPMENT COMPANY, L.P.||CHADWELL, Sharon Jillian|
The present disclosure provides a system that includes an array of disk drives and a controller communicatively coupled to the array of disk drives. The controller is to identify, within the array of disk drives, a predictive failed disk. The controller also rebuilds data of the predictive failed disk on a spare drive in a regeneration mode and determines a regeneration time baseline. The controller also rebuilds data of the predictive failed disk on the spare drive in a copy mode and determines the copy mode execution time. The controller switches to regeneration mode if the copy mode execution time is greater than the regeneration time baseline.
