    The science of cancer research is currently expanding its use of alpha particle emitting radioisotopes. Coupled with the discovery and proliferation of molecular species that seek out and attach to tumors, new therapy and diagnostics are being developed to enhance the treatment of cancer and other diseases. This latest technology is commonly referred to as Alpha Immunotherapy (AIT). Actinium-225/Bismuth-213 is a parent/daughter alpha-emitting radioisotope pair that is highly sought after because of the potential for treating numerous diseases and its ability to be chemically compatible with many known and widely used carrier molecules (such as monoclonal antibodies and proteins/peptides). Unfortunately, the worldwide supply of actinium-225 is limited to about 1,000mCi annually and most of that is currently spoken for, thus limiting the ability of this radioisotope pair to enter into research and subsequently clinical trials. The route proposed herein utilizes high energy protons to produce actinium-225 via spallation of a thorium-232 target. As part of previous R and D efforts carried out at Argonne National Laboratory recently in support of the proposed US FRIB facility, it was shown that a very effective production mechanism for actinium-225 is spallation of thorium-232 by high energy proton beams. The base-line simulation for the production rate of actinium-225 by this reaction mechanism is 8E12 atoms per second at 200 MeV proton beam energy with 50 g/cm2 thorium target and 100 kW beam power. An irradiation of one actinium-225 half-life (10 days) produces {approx}100 Ci of actinium-225. For a given beam current the reaction cross section increases slightly with energy to about 400 MeV and then decreases slightly for beam energies in the several GeV regime. The object of this effort is to refine the simulations at proton beam energies of 400 MeV and above up to about 8 GeV. Once completed, the simulations will be experimentally verified using 400 MeV and 8 Ge

  3. Extraction of actinium with di-(2-ethylhexyl)phosphoric acid from hydrochloric and nitric acid solutions

    The extraction of actinium with HDEHP from Cl- and NO3- systems has been investigated. It was found that extraction of actinium from HCl solutions is much better than from HNO3 solutions. Stability constants of actinium complexes Ac(X-)+2 with Cl- and NO3- ligands were determined. Our results show that the actinium formed less stable complexes with Cl- than with NO3- ligands. 5 refs., 3 figs., 1 tab. (author)

  4. The sorption of polonium, actinium and protactinium onto geological materials

    This paper describes a combined experimental and modeling program of generic sorption studies to increase confidence in the performance assessment for a potential high-level radioactive waste repository in Japan. The sorption of polonium, actinium and protactinium onto geological materials has been investigated. Sorption of these radioelements onto bentonite, tuff and granodiorite from equilibrated de-ionized water was studied under reducing conditions at room temperature. In addition, the sorption of actinium and protactinium was investigated at 60 C. Thermodynamic chemical modeling was carried out to aid interpretation of the results

  5. Discovery of the actinium, thorium, protactinium, and uranium isotopes

    Fry, C; Thoennessen, M

    2012-01-01

    Currently, 31 actinium, 31 thorium, 28 protactinium, and 23 uranium isotopes have so far been observed; the discovery of these isotopes is discussed. For each isotope a brief summary of the first refereed publication, including the production and identification method, is presented.

  6. Separation of Actinium 227 from the uranium minerals

    The purpose of this work was to separate Actinium 227, whose content is 18%, from the mineral carnotite found in Gomez Chihuahua mountain range in Mexico. The mineral before processing is is pre-concentrated and passed, first through anionic exchange resins, later the eluate obtained is passed through cationic resins. The resins were 20-50 MESH QOWEX and 100-200 MESH 50 X 8-20 in some cased 200-400 MESH AG 50W-X8, 1X8 in other cases. The eluates from the ionic exchange were electrodeposited on stainless steel polished disc cathode and platinum electrode as anode; under a current ODF 10mA for 2.5 to 5 hours and of 100mA for .5 of an hour. it was possible to identify the Actinium 227 by means of its descendents, TH-227 and RA-223, through alpha spectroscopy. Due to the radiochemical purity which the electro deposits were obtained the Actinium 227 was low and was not quantitatively determined. A large majority of the members of the natural radioactive series 3 were identified and even alpha energies reported in the literature with very low percentages of non-identified emissions were observed. We conclude that a more precise study is needed concerning ionic exchange and electrodeposit to obtain an Actinium 227 of radiochemical purity. (Author)

    Actinium-225 is a promising isotope for targeted-α therapy. Unfortunately, progress in developing chelators for medicinal applications has been hindered by a limited understanding of actinium chemistry. This knowledge gap is primarily associated with handling actinium, as it is highly radioactive and in short supply. Hence, Ac(III) reactivity is often inferred from the lanthanides and minor actinides (that is, Am, Cm), with limited success. Here we overcome these challenges and characterize actinium in HCl solutions using X-ray absorption spectroscopy and molecular dynamics density functional theory. The Ac-Cl and Ac-OH2O distances are measured to be 2.95(3) and 2.59(3) Å, respectively. The X-ray absorption spectroscopy comparisons between Ac(III) and Am(III) in HCl solutions indicate Ac(III) coordinates more inner-sphere Cl(1-) ligands (3.2±1.1) than Am(III) (0.8±0.3). These results imply diverse reactivity for the +3 actinides and highlight the unexpected and unique Ac(III) chemical behaviour. PMID:27531582

  8. Production of high-purity radium-223 from legacy actinium-beryllium neutron sources.

    2012-07-01

    Radium-223 is a short-lived alpha-particle-emitting radionuclide with potential applications in cancer treatment. Research to develop new radiopharmaceuticals employing (223)Ra has been hindered by poor availability due to the small quantities of parent actinium-227 available world-wide. The purpose of this study was to develop innovative and cost-effective methods to obtain high-purity (223)Ra from (227)Ac. We obtained (227)Ac from two surplus actinium-beryllium neutron generators. We retrieved the actinium/beryllium buttons from the sources and dissolved them in a sulfuric-nitric acid solution. A crude actinium solid was recovered from the solution by coprecipitation with thorium fluoride, leaving beryllium in solution. The crude actinium was purified to provide about 40 milligrams of actinium nitrate using anion exchange in methanol-water-nitric acid solution. The purified actinium was then used to generate high-purity (223)Ra. We extracted (223)Ra using anion exchange in a methanol-water-nitric acid solution. After the radium was separated, actinium and thorium were then eluted from the column and dried for interim storage. This single-pass separation produces high purity, carrier-free (223)Ra product, and does not disturb the (227)Ac/(227)Th equilibrium. A high purity, carrier-free (227)Th was also obtained from the actinium using a similar anion exchange in nitric acid. These methods enable efficient production of (223)Ra for research and new alpha-emitter radiopharmaceutical development. PMID:22697483

  9. Radium, thorium, and actinium extraction from seawater using an improved manganese-oxide-coated fiber

    Laboratory experiments were conducted to determine the efficiency with which improved manganese-oxide-coated acrylic fibers extract radium, thorium, and actinium from seawater. Tests were made using surface seawater spiked with 227Ac, 227Th and 223Ra. For sample volumes of approximately 30 liters and flow rates up to 0.5 liters per minute, radium and actinium are removed quantitatively. Approximately 80-95% of the thorium is removed under these same conditions. (Auth.)

  10. Neutron-Induced Fission of Actinium-227, Protactinium-231 and Neptunium-237: Mass Distribution

    Results of radiochemical studies on the mass distribution in the neutron-induced fission of actinium-227, protactinium-231 and neptunium-237 have been presented. This work has been carried out as part of a programme to determine the mass distribution in the fission of heavy elements as a function of Z and A. All irradiations have been carried out in the core of the swimming-pool type reactor APSARA with cadmium shielding wherever necessary. Relative yields of several fission product nuclides have been obtained by a method involving a comparison of the fission product activities from the respective targets with those formed from uranium-235 simultaneously irradiated. Thermal-neutron fission yields of uranium-235 have been assumed. These results indicate a predominantly asymmetric mass distribution in all the three cases, and also a distinct though small symmetric peak in the case of actinium-227. (author)

  11. A new method for the determination of low-level actinium-227 in geological samples

    We developed a new method for the determination of 227Ac in geological samples. The method uses extraction chromatographic techniques and alpha-spectrometry and is applicable for a range of natural matrices. Here we report on the procedure and results of the analysis of water (fresh and seawater) and rock samples. Water samples were acidified and rock samples underwent total dissolution via acid leaching. A DGA (N,N,N',N'-tetra-n-octyldiglycolamide) extraction chromatographic column was used for the separation of actinium. The actinium fraction was prepared for alpha spectrometric measurement via cerium fluoride micro-precipitation. Recoveries of actinium in water samples were 80 ± 8 % (number of analyses n = 14) and in rock samples 70 ± 12 % (n = 30). The minimum detectable activities (MDA) were 0.017-0.5 Bq kg-1 for both matrices. Rock sample 227Ac activities ranged from 0.17 to 8.3 Bq kg-1 and water sample activities ranged from below MDA values to 14 Bq kg-1of 227Ac. From the analysis of several standard rock and water samples with the method we found very good agreement between our results and certified values. (author)

  12. Analysis of the gamma spectra of the uranium, actinium, and thorium decay series

    Momeni, M.H.

    1981-09-01

    This report describes the identification of radionuclides in the uranium, actinium, and thorium series by analysis of gamma spectra in the energy range of 40 to 1400 keV. Energies and absolute efficiencies for each gamma line were measured by means of a high-resolution germanium detector and compared with those in the literature. A gamma spectroscopy method, which utilizes an on-line computer for deconvolution of spectra, search and identification of each line, and estimation of activity for each radionuclide, was used to analyze soil and uranium tailings, and ore.

  14. In-source laser spectroscopy developments at TRILIS—towards spectroscopy on actinium and scandium

    Resonance Ionization Laser Ion Sources (RILIS) have become a versatile tool for production and study of exotic nuclides at Isotope Separator On-Line (ISOL) facilities such as ISAC at TRIUMF. The recent development and addition of a grating tuned spectroscopy laser to the TRIUMF RILIS solid state laser system allows for wide range spectral scans to investigate atomic structures on short lived isotopes, e.g., those from the element actinium, produced in uranium targets at ISAC. In addition, development of new and improved laser ionization schemes for rare isotope production at ISAC is ongoing. Here spectroscopic studies on bound states, Rydberg states and autoionizing (AI) resonances on scandium using the existing off-line capabilities are reported. These results allowed to identify a suitable ionization scheme for scandium via excitation into an autoionizing state at 58,104 cm − 1 which has subsequently been used for ionization of on-line produced exotic scandium isotopes.

    To study exotic nuclides at the borders of stability with laser ionization and spectroscopy techniques, highest efficiencies in combination with a high spectral resolution are required. These usually opposing requirements are reconciled by applying the in-gas-laser ionization and spectroscopy (IGLIS) technique in the supersonic gas jet produced by a de Laval nozzle installed at the exit of the stopping gas cell. Carrying out laser ionization in the low-temperature and low density supersonic gas jet eliminates pressure broadening, which will significantly improve the spectral resolution. This article presents the required modifications at the Leuven Isotope Separator On-Line (LISOL) facility that are needed for the first on-line studies of in-gas-jet laser spectroscopy. Different geometries for the gas outlet and extraction ion guides have been tested for their performance regarding the acceptance of laser ionized species as well as for their differential pumping capacities. The specifications and performance of the temporarily installed high repetition rate laser system, including a narrow bandwidth injection-locked Ti:sapphire laser, are discussed and first preliminary results on neutron-deficient actinium isotopes are presented indicating the high capability of this novel technique.

  16. Groundwater seepage from the Ranger uranium mine tailings dam: radioisotopes of radium, thorium and actinium. Supervising Scientist report 106

    Monitoring of bores near the Ranger uranium mine tailings dam has revealed deterioration in water quality in several bores since 1983. In a group of bores to the north of the dam, increases have been observed of up to 500 times for sulphate concentrations and of up to 5 times for 226Ra concentrations. Results are presented here of measurements of members of the uranium, thorium and actinium decay series in borewater samples collected between 1985 and 1993. In particular, measurements of all four naturally-occurring radium isotopes have been used in an investigation of the mechanism of radium concentration changes. For the most seepage-affected bores the major findings of the study include: 228Ra/226Ra 223Ra /226Ra and 224Ra/228Ra ratios all increased over the course of the study; barium concentrations show high seasonal variability, being lower in November than May, but strontium concentrations show a steady increase with time. Calculations show that the groundwater is probably saturated with respect to barite but not with respect to celestite or anglesite; sulphide concentrations are low in comparison with sulphate, and are higher in November than in May; and 227Ac concentrations have increased with time, but do not account for the high 223Ra/226Ra ratios. It is concluded on the basis of these observations that increases in Ra isotope concentrations observed in a number of seepage-affected bores arise from increases in salinity leading to desorption of radium from adsorption sites in the vicinity of the bore rather by direct transport of radium from the tailings. Increased salinity is also causing the observed increases in 227Ac and strontium concentrations, while formation of a barite solid phase in the groundwater is causing the removal of some radium from solution. This is the cause of the increasing radium isotope ratios noted above

  17. Linear free energy relationship applied to trivalent cations with lanthanum and actinium oxide and hydroxide structure

    Linear free energy relationships for trivalent cations with crystalline M2O3 and, M(OH)3 phases of lanthanides and actinides were developed from known thermodynamic properties of the aqueous trivalent cations, modifying the Sverjensky and Molling equation. The linear free energy relationship for trivalent cations is as ΔGf,MvX0=aMvXΔGn,M3+0+bMvX+βMvXrM3+, where the coefficients aMvX, bMvX, and βMvX characterize a particular structural family of MvX, rM3+ is the ionic radius of M3+ cation, ΔGf,MvX0 is the standard Gibbs free energy of formation of MvX and ΔGn,M3+0 is the standard non-solvation free energy of the cation. The coefficients for the oxide family are: aMvX=0.2705, bMvX=-1984.75 (kJ/mol), and βMvX=197.24 (kJ/molnm). The coefficients for the hydroxide family are: aMvX=0.1587, bMvX=-1474.09 (kJ/mol), and βMvX=791.70 (kJ/molnm).

  18. Purification of selenium from thorium, uranium, radium, actinium and potassium impurities for low background measurements

    A technique of selenium purification from 232Th, 238U, 226,228Ra, 227Ac and 40K was developed. This technique is simple to perform and employs a minimum number of highly pure reagents (bidistilled water, nitric acid). Operations carried out during purification (elution, evaporation) practically exclude losses of the target product (chemical yields of Se > 99%). A test purification of 100 g of selenium was carried out using this technique. The efficiency of this technique was confirmed by low background gamma spectrometry of the purified selenium sample. Distribution coefficients of Th, U, Ra and Ac on DOWEX 50W- x 8 cation-exchange resin at different concentrations of selenium and nitric acid were experimentally determinated. Instrumental neutron activation analysis of bidistilled water, deionized water and nitric acid was performed. (orig.)

    Clinical therapeutic studies using {sup 225}Ac-labeled antibodies have begun. Of major concern is renal toxicity that may result from the three alpha-emitting progeny generated following the decay of {sup 225}Ac. The purpose of this study was to determine the amount of {sup 225}Ac and non-equilibrium progeny in the mouse kidney after the injection of {sup 225}Ac-huM195 antibody and examine the dosimetric consequences. Groups of mice were sacrificed at 24, 96 and 144 h after injection with {sup 225}Ac-huM195 antibody and kidneys excised. One kidney was used for gamma ray spectroscopic measurements by a high-purity germanium (HPGe) detector. The second kidney was used to generate frozen tissue sections which were examined by digital autoradiography (DAR). Two measurements were performed on each kidney specimen: (1) immediately post-resection and (2) after sufficient time for any non-equilibrium excess {sup 213}Bi to decay completely. Comparison of these measurements enabled estimation of the amount of excess {sup 213}Bi reaching the kidney ({gamma}-ray spectroscopy) and its sub-regional distribution (DAR). The average absorbed dose to whole kidney, determined by spectroscopy, was 0.77 (SD 0.21) Gy kBq{sup -1}, of which 0.46 (SD 0.16) Gy kBq{sup -1} (i.e. 60%) was due to non-equilibrium excess {sup 213}Bi. The relative contributions to renal cortex and medulla were determined by DAR. The estimated dose to the cortex from non-equilibrium excess {sup 213}Bi (0.31 (SD 0.11) Gy kBq{sup -1}) represented {approx}46% of the total. For the medulla the dose contribution from excess {sup 213}Bi (0.81 (SD 0.28) Gy kBq{sup -1}) was {approx}80% of the total. Based on these estimates, for human patients we project a kidney-absorbed dose of 0.28 Gy MBq{sup -1} following administration of {sup 225}Ac-huM195 with non-equilibrium excess {sup 213}Bi responsible for approximately 60% of the total. Methods to reduce renal accumulation of radioactive progeny appear to be necessary for the

    Using (106 +/- 4) x 10(6) psi ' events accumulated with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII e(+)e(-) collider, we present measurements of the branching fractions for psi' decays to K+K- pi(0) and K+K- eta. In these final states, the decay psi' -> K-2(*) (1430)(+) K- + 10(-5), is observed for the first

  7. k -Bitonic sort

    高庆狮; 胡玥; 刘志勇

    1999-01-01

    A k-bitonic sort which generalizes the bitonic sort is proposed. The theorem of the bitonic sort, which merges two monotonic sequences into one order sequence, is extended into the theorem of k-bitonic sort. The k-bitonic sort merges K (=2k or 2k-1) monotonic sequences into one order sequence in steps, where k=[K/2] is an integer and k≥1. The k-bitonic sort is the Batcher’s bitonic sort when k=1.

  8. New Results from Super-K and K2K

    Wilkes, R J

    2002-01-01

    This paper summarizes recent (as of SSI-02, in some cases updated in November, 2002) results from the Super-Kamiokande and K2K experiments. The interpretation of Super-Kamiokande results on atmospheric and solar neutrinos provides strong evidence for neutrino oscillations, hence non-zero neutrino mass. While statistics are still limited, K2K data are consistent with Super-Kamiokande results on neutrino oscillations. The effort to reconstruct Super-Kamiokande following a cascade of phototube implosions in November, 2001 is described. Plans for the future are also discussed.

    We perform a Dalitz plot analysis of about 100,000 D{sub s}{sup +} decays to K{sup +}K{sup -}{pi}{sup +} and measure the complex amplitudes of the intermediate resonances which contribute to this decay mode. We also measure the relative branching fractions of D{sub s}{sup +} {yields} K{sup +}K{sup +}{pi}{sup -} and D{sub s}{sup +} {yields} K{sup +}K{sup +}K{sup -}. For this analysis we use a 384 fb{sup -1} data sample, recorded by the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy e{sup +}e{sup -} collider running at center-of-mass energies near 10.58 GeV.

  10. Measurement of Interfering K^*+K^- and K^*-K^+ Amplitudes in the Decay D^0 --> K^+K^-pi^0

    Cawlfield, C.; Collaboration, CLEO

    2006-01-01

    We have studied the Cabibbo-suppressed decay mode D^0 into K^+ K^- pi^0 using a Dalitz plot technique and find the strong phase difference delta_D [defined as delta_(K*^- K^+) - delta_(K*^+ K^-)] = 332 degrees +- 8 degrees +- 11 degrees and relative amplitude r_D [defined as a_(K*^- K^+) / a_(K*^+ K^-)] = 0.52 +- 0.05 +- 0.04. This measurement indicates significant destructive interference between D^0 into K^+ (K^- pi^0)_K*^- and D^0 into K^- (K^+ pi^0)_K*^+ in the Dalitz plot region where th...

  12. K2SC: K2 Systematics Correction

    Aigrain, Suzanne; Parviainen, Hannu; Pope, Benjamin

    2016-05-01

    K2SC (K2 Systematics Correction) models instrumental systematics and astrophysical variability in light curves from the K2 mission. It enables the user to remove both position-dependent systematics and time-dependent variability (e.g., for transit searches) or to remove systematics while preserving variability (for variability studies). K2SC automatically computes estimates of the period, amplitude and evolution timescale of the variability for periodic variables and can be run on ASCII and FITS light curve files. Written in Python, this pipeline requires NumPy, SciPy, MPI4Py, Astropy (ascl:1304.002), and George (ascl:1511.015).

  13. Decay of 48K, 49K and 50K

    The 48K, 49K and 50K nuclides have been produced in high energy fragmentation and analyzed by mass spectroscopy techniques. Their half lives have been measured as 6+-1s, 1.1+-0.3s and 0.7+-0.3s, respectively. The γ-rays from their radioactive decay have been observed and the corresponding γ intensities measured. 50K is shown to be a delayed neutron emitter. The antianalog states in the daughter Ca nuclei with a (1d3/2)-1 neutron configuration, preferentially populated in the β decay, have been located. The corresponding 1d3/2 neutron single particle energy is found to remain approximately constant for these neutron rich Ca isotopes

  14. The triangulated category of K-motives DK_(k)

    Garkusha, Grigory; Panin, Ivan

    2013-01-01

    For any perfect field k a triangulated category of K-motives DK_(k) is constructed in the style of Voevodsky's construction of the category DM_(k). To each smooth k-variety X the K-motive is associated in the category DK_(k). Also, it is shown that K_n(X)=DK_(k)(M_K(X)[n],M_K(pt)), where K(X) is Quillen's K-theory of X.

  15. Hamiltonian[k,k+1]-因子%Hamiltonian [k, k + 1]-Factor

    蔡茂诚; 方奇志; 李延军

    2003-01-01

    A Hamiltonian [k, k + 1]-factor is a [k, k + 1]-factor containing a Hamiltonian cycle. A simple graph G of order n is n/2-critical if δ(G) ≥ n/2 but δ(G - e) < n/2 for any edge e ∈ E(G). Let k ≥ 2 be an integer and G be an n/2-critical graph with n ≥ 4k - 6 and n ≥ 7. In this paper it is proved that for any given Hamiltonian cycle C of G, G has a [k, k + 1]-factor containing C. This result is an improvement on some recent results about the existence of Hamiltonian [k, k + 1]-factor.%本文考虑n/2-临界图中Hamiltonian[k,k+1]-因子的存在性.Hamiltonian[k,k+1]-因子是指包含Hamiltonian圈的[k,k+1]-因子;给定阶数为n的简单图G,若δ(G)≥n/2而δ(G\\e)<n/2(对任意的e∈E(G)),则称G为n/2-临界图.设k为大于等于2的整数,G为n/2-临界图(其中n≥4k-6且n≥7),我们证明了对于G的任何Hamiltonian圈C,G中必存在包含C的[k,k+1]-因子.该结果改进了现有的一些有关Hamiltonian[k,k+1]-因子存在性的结果.

    We report observations of the b --> d penguin-dominated decays B+ --> K0bar K+ and B0 --> K0 K0bar in approximately 350 million Upsilon(4S) --> BBbar decays collected with the BaBar detector. We measure the branching fractions B(B+ --> K0bar K+) = (1.61 +/- 0.44 +/- 0.09) * 10^-6 and B(B0 --> K0 K0bar) = (1.08 +/- 0.28 +/- 0.11) * 10^-6, and the CP-violating charge asymmetry A_{CP}(K0bar K+) = 0.10 +/- 0.26 +/- 0.03. Using a vertexing technique previously employed in several analyses of all-neutral final states containing kaons, we report the first measurement of time-dependent CP-violating asymmetries in B0 --> K0 K0bar, obtaining S = -1.28 +0.80/-0.73 +0.11/-0.16 and C = -0.40 +/- 0.41 +/- 0.06. We also report improved measurements of the branching fraction B(B0 --> K0 pi+) = (23.9 +/- 1.1 +/- 1.0) * 10^-6 and CP-violating charge asymmetry A_{CP}(K0 pi+) = -0.029 +/- 0.039 +/- 0.010.

  19. On k-critical 2k-connected graphs

    苏健基; 袁旭东; 赵巧凤

    A graph G is called an (n,k)-graph if k(G- S) = n - |S| for any S C V(G) with |S| ≤ k,where k(G) denotes the connectivity of G. Mader conjectured that for k ≥ 3 the graph K2k+2-(1-factor) isthe unique (2k, k)-graph. Kriesell has settled two special cases for k = 3, 4. We prove the conjecture for thegeneral case k ≥ 5.

  20. The ratio Φ→K+K-/K0 anti K0

    The ratio Φ→K+K-/K0K0 is discussed and its present experimental value is compared with theoretical expectations. A difference larger than two standard deviations is observed. It is critically examined a number of mechanisms that could account for this discrepancy, which remains unexplained. Measurements at DAΦNE at the level of the per mille accuracy can clarify whether there exist any anomaly

  2. I^K-convergence

    Mačaj, Martin; Sleziak, Martin

    2011-01-01

    In this paper we introduce I^K-convergence which is a common generalization of the I^K-convergence of sequences, double sequences and nets. We show that many results that were shown before for these special cases are true for the I^K-convergence, too

  3. On $k$-stellated and $k$-stacked spheres

    Bagchi, Bhaskar; Datta, Basudeb

    2012-01-01

    We introduce the class $\\Sigma_k(d)$ of $k$-stellated (combinatorial) spheres of dimension $d$ ($0 \\leq k \\leq d + 1$) and compare and contrast it with the class ${\\cal S}_k(d)$ ($0 \\leq k \\leq d$) of $k$-stacked homology $d$-spheres. We have $\\Sigma_1(d) = {\\cal S}_1(d)$, and $\\Sigma_k(d) \\subseteq {\\cal S}_k(d)$ for $d \\geq 2k - 1$. However, for each $k \\geq 2$ there are $k$-stacked spheres which are not $k$-stellated. The existence of $k$-stellated spheres which are not $k$-stacked remains...

  4. 373 K Superconductors

    Kostadinov, Ivan Zahariev

    2016-01-01

    Experimental evidence of superconductors with critical temperatures above $373\\:K$ is presented. In a family of different compounds we demonstrate the superconductor state, the transition to normal state above $387\\:K$, an intermediate $242\\:K$ superconductor, susceptibility up to $350\\:K$, $I-V$ curves at $4.2\\:K$ in magnetic field of $12\\:T$ and current up to $60\\:A$, $300\\:K$ Josephson Junctions and Shapiro steps with radiation of $5\\:GHz$ to $21\\:THz$, $300\\:K$ tapes tests with high currents up to $3000\\:A$ and many $THz$ images of coins and washers. Due to a pending patent, the exact chemical characterization and technological processes for these materials are temporarily withheld and will be presented elsewhere.

  5. Vitamine K

    Bal dit Sollier Claire

    2011-03-01

    Full Text Available Subclasses of vitamin K, their origins, their differential characteristics of absorption and metabolism, their relative effects on gammacarboxylation of various proteins implicated in hemostasis andcoagulation, in bone calcification are not well known even by experts in these fields. These misunderstandings explain errors in recommendations for public and for patients. This review will not expose again the fundamentals on vitamins K as presented in the paper by Marc Guillaumont published in 2000 in this same journal. This 2011 review will try to update our actual knowledge and most of all will insist on their practical implications especially on the management of oral anticoagulant treatments since until recently vitamin K antagonist was the only available type of such a treatment. Several examples illustrate the need for a better understanding of this subject. The fear that diet vitamin K could deregulate the equilibrium of oral vitamin K antagonist treatment leads to recommend a quite total suppression of vitamin K containing components in the diet of anticoagulated patients. This leads to an opposite effect: a high sensitivity to vitamin K and to disequilibrium of the anticoagulant treatment while a comprehensivemoderate and regular diet intake of vitamin K first facilitates the food choice of the patients but also helps to stabilise the treatment of chronically anticoagulated patients. Vitamin K plays a role in bone calcification and in osteoporosis prevention. Until recently the food supplementation with vitamin K in view of preventing osteoporosis in general population was strongly limited due to fear to affect the treatment equilibrium in anticoagulated patients. While an understanding that the effects of moderate supplementation in vitamin K has no or limited effect on anticoagulation and on the long run could at the opposite help to stabilize the daily level of anticoagulation in patients chronically treated with vitamin K.

  6. Quantum K-systems

    We generalize the classical notion of a K-system to a non-commutative dynamical system by requiring that an invariantly defined memory loss be 100%. We give some examples of quantum K-systems and show that they cannot contain any quasi-periodic subsystem. 13 refs. (Author)

  8. K Basin safety analysis

    The purpose of this accident safety analysis is to document in detail, analyses whose results were reported in summary form in the K Basins Safety Analysis Report WHC-SD-SNF-SAR-001. The safety analysis addressed the potential for release of radioactive and non-radioactive hazardous material located in the K Basins and their supporting facilities. The safety analysis covers the hazards associated with normal K Basin fuel storage and handling operations, fuel encapsulation, sludge encapsulation, and canister clean-up and disposal. After a review of the Criticality Safety Evaluation of the K Basin activities, the following postulated events were evaluated: Crane failure and casks dropped into loadout pit; Design basis earthquake; Hypothetical loss of basin water accident analysis; Combustion of uranium fuel following dryout; Crane failure and cask dropped onto floor of transfer area; Spent ion exchange shipment for burial; Hydrogen deflagration in ion exchange modules and filters; Release of Chlorine; Power availability and reliability; and Ashfall

  14. k-Sparse Autoencoders

    Makhzani, Alireza; Frey, Brendan

    2013-01-01

    Recently, it has been observed that when representations are learnt in a way that encourages sparsity, improved performance is obtained on classification tasks. These methods involve combinations of activation functions, sampling steps and different kinds of penalties. To investigate the effectiveness of sparsity by itself, we propose the k-sparse autoencoder, which is an autoencoder with linear activation function, where in hidden layers only the k highest activities are kept. When applied t...

  15. K-core inflation

    Wolman, Alexander L.

    2011-01-01

    K-core inflation is a new class of underlying inflation measures. The two most popular measures of underlying inflation are core inflation and trimmed mean inflation. The former removes fixed categories of goods and services (food and energy) from the inflation calculation, and the latter removes fixed percentiles of the weighted distribution of price changes. In contrast, k-core inflation specifies a size of relative price change to be removed from the inflation calculation. Thus, the catego...

    We present the first clear observation of the doubly Cabibbo suppressed decay D+ --> K-K+K+ and the first observation of the singly Cabibbo suppressed decay Ds+ --> K-K+K+. These signals have been obtained by analyzing the high statistics sample of photoproduced charm particles of the FOCUS(E831) experiment at Fermilab. We measure the following relative branching ratios: Gamma(D+ --> K-K+K+)/Gamma(D+ --> K-pi+pi+) = (9.49 +/- 2.17(statistical) +/- 0.22(systematic))x10^-4 and Gamma(Ds+ --> K-K+K+)/Gamma(Ds+ --> K-K+pi+) = (8.95 +/- 2.12(statistical) +2.24(syst.) -2.31(syst.))x10^-3.

  19. K Water Plant improvements

    Trumble, R.E.; Heacock, H.W.; Reinig, L.P.; Jones, S.S.; Mollerus, F.J.

    1959-03-19

    A Task Force was established in the Irradiation Processing Department to examine the K-Reactor Water Plant to (1) review the operating and maintenance experience with the water plant as improved since startup, (2) identify major plant additions which could further improve reliability, and (3) estimate the costs of any such additions. The K-Water Plant basically consists of the electrically driven primary cooling system with power supplied by the BPA system, electrically driven secondary or backup cooling system powered by a steam driven emergency generator pair, and a ``last ditch`` system consisting of hydraulic cross-ties between the two K-Water Plants. This report summarizes information developed in the course of the Task Force deliberations.

  1. CP-violating asymmetry in $B^- \\to \\pi^+ \\pi^- K^-$ and $B^- \\rarr K^+ K^- K^-$ decays

    Pham, T. N.

    2003-01-01

    The recent Belle and Babar measurements of the branching ratios $B^- \\to \\pi^+ \\pi^- K^-$ and $B^- \\to K^+ K^- K^-$ and $B^\\pm \\to \\chi_{c0} K^\\pm$ have renewed interests in these decays as another mean to look for direct CP violation in B decays. In this talk, I would like to discuss a recent analysis of the CP violating asymmetry in the partial widths for the decays $B^- \\to \\pi^+ \\pi^- K^-$ and $B^- \\to K^+ K^- K^-$, which results from the interference of the non resonant amplitude with th...

  3. Hypermodal Logics K[TnK]and K[TKn]%超模态逻辑K[TnK]和K[TKn

    许春梅

    2012-01-01

    The work of this paper is based on one paper of D. M. Gabbay, which is 'A theory of hypermodal logics: Mode shifting in modal logic'. Specially, based on his two satisfaction relations, I define n + 1 satisfaction relations, and then gain two kinds of more general logics K[TnK]and K[TKn], whereas n 〉 1. There we will get more general results: (1) For any n ≥ 1,口j+(n+l)kp→ 口i+(n+l)kp are theorems of K[TnK], whereas 0 ≤i 〈 j ≤ n. (2) For any n ≥1, every logic of IC[TKn] has theorems 口j+(n+l)kp→ 口i+(n+l)kp, whereas n 〉 1. However, 口j+(n+l)kp→ 口i+(n+l)kp are not theorems of IC[TK@ whereas 0 ≤i 〈 j ≤ n., and j ≠ 1, or i ≠0. So, (3) every logic of 1C[TnK] is a proper extension of logic K[TnK], for each n 〉 1. (4) The rule of Necessitation is not available to logics of IC[TnK] and K.[TKn], well, for any n ≥1, Yqn+lA is a theorem of K[TnK]and K[TKn], whereas A is a theorem of ICK[TnK]and K[TKn], respectively. (5) Logics of K[TnK]and K[TKn] are not closed under substitution of provably equivalent formulas. Besides, based on his two translations T0, T1 from hypermodal logic K[TK] to standard K, we define n + 1 translations TO, T1.....Tn from hypermodal logics K[TnK] and K[TKn] to standard K, respectively. Then we get a correspondence of pointed model satisfaction with logics IC[TnK], 1C[TKn] and standard K, respectively, i.e. a hypermodal formula is true in a world by some satisfaction relation iff the corresponding translation of the hypermodal formula is true in that world by the standard K satisfaction relation.%本文的工作是在D.M.Gabbay的一篇论文《超模态逻辑理论:在模态逻辑中的模转换》基础上所做的,主要是将他的两类满足关系扩充到n+1种满足关系,然后在此基础上得到两类一般性的逻辑类K[TnK]和K[TKn],其中n≥1。我们得到了一些更为一般性的结论:(1)逻辑类K[TnK]的定理模式是:对任意n≥1,口j+(n+1

  7. Equivariant K3 Invariants

    Cheng, Miranda C N; Harrison, Sarah M; Kachru, Shamit

    2015-01-01

    In this note, we describe a connection between the enumerative geometry of curves in K3 surfaces and the chiral ring of an auxiliary superconformal field theory. We consider the invariants calculated by Yau--Zaslow (capturing the Euler characters of the moduli spaces of D2-branes on curves of given genus), together with their refinements to carry additional quantum numbers by Katz--Klemm--Vafa (KKV), and Katz--Klemm--Pandharipande (KKP). We show that these invariants can be reproduced by studying the Ramond ground states of an auxiliary chiral superconformal field theory which has recently been observed to give rise to mock modular moonshine for a variety of sporadic simple groups that are subgroups of Conway's group. We also study equivariant versions of these invariants. A K3 sigma model is specified by a choice of 4-plane in the K3 D-brane charge lattice. Symmetries of K3 sigma models are naturally identified with 4-plane preserving subgroups of the Conway group, according to the work of Gaberdiel--Hoheneg...

    We analyze the decay B0 --> K+ K- K0 using 383 million B-Bbar events collected by the BaBar detector at SLAC to extract CP violation parameter values over the Dalitz plot. Combining all K+ K- K0 events, we find A_CP = -0.015 +/- 0.077 +/- 0.053 and beta_eff = 0.352 +/- 0.076 +/- 0.026 rad, corresponding to a CP violation significance of 4.8 sigma. A second solution near pi/2 - beta_eff is disfavored with a significance of 4.5 sigma. We also report A_CP and beta_eff separately for decays to phi(1020) K0, f0(980) K0, and K+ K- K0 with m_{K+ K-} > 1.1 GeV/c^2.

  9. Phenomenology of the $ppK^+K^-$ system near threshold

    Silarski, M

    2014-01-01

    In this article studies of the near threshold $pp\\to ppK^+K^-$ reaction conducted with the COSY-11 and the ANKE detectors are reviewed. In particular recent investigations on the $K^+K^-$ final state interaction are revisited taking into account updated cross sections of the COSY-11 experiment. These studies resulted in the new value of $K^+K^-$ effective range amounting to: $\\mathrm{Re}(b_{K^{+}K^{-}}) = -0.2^{+0.8_{stat}~+0.4_{sys}}_{-0.6_{stat}~-0.4_{sys}}~\\mathrm{fm}$ and $\\mathrm{Im}(b_{K^{+}K^{-}}) = 1.2^{~+0.5_{stat}~+0.3_{sys}}_{~-0.3_{stat}~-0.3_{sys}}~\\mathrm{fm}$. The determined real and imaginary parts of the $K^+K^-$ scattering length were estimated to be: $\\left|\\mathrm{Re}(a_{K^{+}K^{-}})\\right| = 10^{~+17_{stat}}_{~-10_{stat}}~\\mathrm{fm}$ and $\\mathrm{Im}(a_{K^{+}K^{-}}) = 0^{~+37_{stat}}_{~-10_{stat}}~\\mathrm{fm}$.

  10. Observation of F decays into anti K * K

    Using the ARGUS detector at DORIS II, the decay of F+→anti K*0K+, and the ratio BR(F+→anti K*0K+)/BR(F+→Φπ+) is found to be 1.44±0.37. This is a substantial rate for a decay channel which cannot proceed via a colour-favoured diagram. (orig.)

  12. T2K & beyond

    Catanesi, M G

    2016-01-01

    This article presents the status of the art of the T2K experiment and the measurements prospects for the incoming years. After a brief description of the experiment, the most recent results will be illustrated. The observation of the electron neutrino appearance in a muon neutrino beam and the new high-precision measurements of the mixing angle theta13 by the reactor experiments have led to a re-evaluation of the expected sensitivity to the oscillation parameters, relative to what was given in the original T2K proposal. For this reason the new physics potential of T2K for 7.8 x 10**21 p.o.t. and for a data exposure 3 times larger than it's expected to be reachable with accelerator and beam line upgrades in 2026 before the start of operation of the next generation of long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments will also be described in the text. In particular the last challenging scenario opens the door to the possibility to obtain, under some conditions, a 3 sigma measurement excluding sin(deltaCP= 0.

  13. Penguin amplitudes in B^+ to pi^+ K^*0, K^+ \\bar{K}^*0 decays

    Zenczykowski, Piotr

    2010-01-01

    The question of the relative size of two independent penguin amplitudes is studied using the data on the B^+ to pi^+ K^*0, and B^+ to K^+ \\bar{K}^*0 decays. Our discussion involves a Regge-phenomenology-based estimate of SU(3) breaking in the final quark-pair-creating hadronization process. The results are in agreement with earlier estimates of the relative size of the two penguins obtained from B^+ to pi^+ K^0, K^+ \\bar{K}^0.

    We study the processes e{sup +}e{sup -} {yields} K{sup +}K{sup -}{pi}{sup +}{pi}-{gamma}, K{sup +}K{sup -}{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}{gamma}, and K{sup +}K{sup -}K{sup +}K{sup -}{gamma}, where the photon is radiated from the initial state. About 84000, 8000, and 4200 fully reconstructed events, respectively, are selected from 454 fb{sup -1} of BABAR data. The invariant mass of the hadronic final state defines the e{sup +}e{sup -} center-of-mass energy, so that the K{sup +}K{sup -}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}{gamma} data can be compared with direct measurements of the e{sup +}e{sup -} {yields} K{sup +}K{sup -}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -} reaction. No direct measurements exist for the e{sup +}e{sup -} {yields} K{sup +}K{sup -}{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0} or e{sup +}e{sup -} {yields} K{sup +}K{sup -}K{sup +}K{sup -} reactions, and we present an update of our previous result with doubled statistics. Studying the structure of these events, we find contributions from a number of intermediate states, and extract their cross sections. In particular, we perform a more detailed study of the e{sup +}e{sup -} {yields} {phi}(1020){pi}{pi}{gamma} reaction, and confirm the presence of the Y (2175) resonance in the {phi}(1020)f{sub 0}(980) and K{sup +}K{sup -} f{sub 0}(980) modes. In the charmonium region, we observe the J/{psi} in all three final states and in several intermediate states, as well as the {phi}(2S) in some modes, and measure the corresponding branching fractions.

  15. Dose due to 40K

    The dose due to 40K has been estimated. Potassium is one of the most abundant elements in nature, being approximately 2% of the Earth's crust. Potassium has three isotopes 39K, 40K and 41K, two are stable while 40K is radioactive with a half life of 1.2x109 years; there is 0.0117% 40K-to-K ratio. Potassium plays an important role in plants, animals and humans growth and reproduction. Due to the fact that K is an essential element for humans, 40K is the most abundant radioisotope in human body. In order to keep good health conditions K must be intake at daily basis trough food and beverages, however when K in ingested above the requirements produce adverse health effects in persons with renal, cardiac and hypertension problems or suffering diabetes. In 89.3% 40K decays to 40C through β-decay, in 10.3% decays through electronic capture and emitting 1.46 MeV γ-ray. K is abundant in soil, construction materials, sand thus γ-rays produced during 40K decay contribute to external dose. For K in the body practically all 40K decaying energy is absorbed by the body; thus 40K contributes to total dose in humans and it is important to evaluate its contribution. In this work a set of 40K sources were prepared using different amounts of KCl salt, a γ-ray spectrometer with a NaI(Tl) was characterized to standardized the sources in order to evaluate the dose due to 40K. Using thermoluminescent dosemeters the dose due to 40K was measured and related to the amount of 40K γ-ray activity. (Author)

    Using data from the FOCUS (E831) experiment at Fermilab, we present a new measurement of the branching ratio for the Cabibbo-favored decay mode $D^0 \\to K^-K^-K^+\\pi^+$. From a sample of $143 \\pm 19$ fully reconstructed $D^0 \\to K^-K^-K^+\\pi^+$ events, we measure $\\Gamma(D^0 \\to K^-K^-K^+\\pi^+)/\\Gamma(D^0 \\to K^-\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^+) = 0.00257 \\pm 0.00034(stat.) \\pm 0.00024(syst.)$. A coherent amplitude analysis has been performed to determine the resonant substructure of this decay mode. This analysis reveals a dominant contribution from $\\phi$ and $\\bar K^{*0}(890)$ states.

  18. Vitamin K and Hemostasis - Review

    Fatih Demirtaş; Melike Sezgin Evim; Birol Baytan; Adalet Meral Güneş

    2010-01-01

    Vitamin K is necessary for the synthesis of the proteins that help control bleeding (clotting factors) and thus for the normal clotting of blood. Newborns are prone to vitamin K deficiency because only small amounts of vitamin K cross the placenta and because, during the first few days after birth, their intestine does not contain bacteria to produce vitamin K. The deficiency can cause hemorrhagic disease of the newborn, characterized by a tendency to bleed. A vitamin K injection in the muscl...

  19. k-Inflation

    Armendariz-Picon, C; Mukhanov, V

    1999-01-01

    It is shown that a large class of higher-order (i.e. non-quadratic) scalar kinetic terms can, without the help of potential terms, drive an inflationary evolution starting from rather generic initial conditions. In many models, this kinetically driven inflation (or "k-inflation" for short) rolls slowly from a high-curvature initial phase, down to a low-curvature phase and can exit inflation to end up being radiation-dominated, in a naturally graceful manner. We hope that this novel inflation mechanism might be useful in suggesting new ways of reconciling the string dilaton with inflation.

  20. K0/K+ ratio in relativistic heavy-ion collisions

    It is shown that ratio of production yields of K0 and K+ mesons in collisions of isotopically asymmetric nuclei at incident energies ∼ 1 GeV/nucleon is related directly enough to temperature of nuclear matter at the initial stage of the collision. Sensitivity of the K0/K+ ratio to the temperature variation is analyzed. Ambiguities, associated with interpretation of this quantity as a probe of nuclear temperature, are discussed. It is argued that the K0/K+ ratio is a fairly model-independent quantity, provided channels with Δ isobars dominate the kaon production. (orig.)

    The observation of hydrogen-like $\\pi K$ atoms, consisting of $\\pi^- K^+$ or $\\pi^+ K^-$ mesons, is presented. The atoms have been produced by 24 GeV/$c$ protons from the CERN PS accelerator, interacting with platinum or nickel foil targets. The breakup (ionisation) of $\\pi K$ atoms in the same targets yields characteristic $\\pi K$ pairs, called ``atomic pairs'', with small relative momenta in the pair centre-of-mass system. The upgraded DIRAC experiment has observed $349\\pm62$ such atomic $\\pi K$ pairs, corresponding to a signal of 5.6 standard deviations.

  2. Litteratursøk

    Ingvild Kirkehei

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available I denne artikkelen beskriver vi prinsipper for å utføre systematiske søk etter forskningslitteratur. I et godt søk bør det tas utgangspunkt i et klart formulert spørsmål som uttrykker hva slags forskning en ønsker å finne. For effektspørsmål kan dette formuleres ved hjelp av et PICO-skjema hvor det konkretiseres hvilke pasienter, tiltak og utfallsmål en er interessert i. I litteratursøket er det vanlig å bruke engelske søkeord som beskriver disse PICO-kategoriene. For å finne så mye relevant forskning som mulig, er det viktig å søke på alle relevante synonymer og staveformer. En kan også søke på standardiserte emneord som beskriver innholdet i publikasjonene. De boolske operatorene AND og OR brukes for å kombinere søkeordene i en samlet søkestrategi. For å få et håndterlig antall søketreff, kan søket avgrenses til publikasjonsår, spesielle aldersgrupper eller relevant studiedesign. Det kan være nyttig å dokumentere hvilke kilder og søkeord som er brukt. I de fleste kilder kan søket lagres og hentes frem senere og søkeresultatene kan eksporteres til referansehåndteringsprogrammer som Reference Manager eller EndNote. I noen tilfeller kan det være nyttig å supplere det systematiske søket med andre gjenfinningsmetoder som søk i studieregistre, gjennomgang av referanselister i relevante publikasjoner, siteringssøk og tips fra fageksperter. Litteratursøk er en ferdighet som læres ved praktisk øvelse og vi anbefaler alle å ta kontakt med en bibliotekar for å lære mer om dette.Kirkehei I, Ormstad SS. Searching for literature.

  3. In-Medium K+ and K- Production and K- Condensation in Supernova Matter

    GUO Hua; ZHOU Ran; LIU Yu-Xin; LIU Bo; LI Xi-Guo

    2004-01-01

    @@ In-medium effects and neutrino trapping on K+ and K- production and K- condensation in supernova matter are investigated in a chiral hadronic model. Our results show that neutrino trapping shifts the critical density for K- condensation to higher density, the Q values for K+ and K- production are not sensitive to neutrino trapping, in-medium effects decrease the Q values for NN → NNK+ K- and ∧N → NNK- and increase those for NN → N∧K+, K-p →∧π0 and K-n →∧π- as the density of supernova matter increases. Moreover,it is shown that neutrino trapping decreases the maximum masses of protoneutron stars compared with the neutrino-free case.

  7. Baking stability of acesulfame K.

    Klug, C; von Rymon Lipinski, G W; Böttger, D

    1992-05-01

    The stability of acesulfame K during baking was investigated at different baking temperatures and baking times. The contents of acesulfame K in baked and unbaked doughs were determined by HPLC. The recovery rate of acesulfame K was independent of the baking conditions chosen and correlated with the recovery rate of acesulfame K in the unbaked doughs. As the stability of acesulfame K cannot only be affected by baking temperature and baking time but also by pH value and moisture content of the baked goods, additional stability investigations were performed with acidic fillings and apple pie. Even under these extreme baking conditions no decomposition of acesulfame K could be detected. PMID:1621451

  8. Total domination in K 5- and K 6-covered graphs

    Odile Favaron

    2008-01-01

    Full Text Available A graph G is K r-covered if each vertex of G is contained in a K r-clique. Let γ t (G denote the total domination number of G. It has been conjectured that every K r-covered graph of order n with no K r-component satisfies γ t (G ≤ 2n/(r+1. We prove that this conjecture is true for r=5 and 6.

  9. φK+K- production in electron-positron annihilation

    In this work we study the e+e-→φK+K- reaction. The leading order electromagnetic contributions to this process involve the γ*φK+K- vertex function with a highly virtual photon. We calculate this function at low energies using RχPT supplemented with the anomalous term for the VV'P interactions. Tree-level contributions involve the kaon form factors and the K*K transition form factors. We improve this result, valid for low photon virtualities, replacing the lowest order terms in the kaon form factors and K*K transition form factors by the form factors as obtained in UχPT in the former case and the ones extracted from recent data on e+e-→KK* in the latter case. We calculate rescattering effects which involve meson-meson amplitudes. The corresponding result is improved using the unitarized meson-meson amplitudes containing the scalar poles instead of the lowest order terms. Using the BABAR value for BR(X→φf0)Γ(X→e+e-), we calculate the contribution from intermediate X(2175). A good description of data is obtained in the case of destructive interference between this contribution and the previous ones, but more accurate data on the isovector K*K transition form factor is required in order to exclude contributions from an intermediate isovector resonance to e+e-→φK+K- around 2.2 GeV.

  10. The $K \\bar K \\pi$ decay of the $f_1(1285)$ and its nature as a $K^* \\bar K -cc$ molecule

    Aceti, F.; Xie, Ju-Jun; Oset, E

    We investigate the decay of $f_1(1285) \\to \\pi K \\bar K$ with the assumption that the $f_1(1285)$ is dynamically generated from the $K^* \\bar{K} - cc$ interaction. In addition to the tree level diagrams that proceed via $f_1(1285) \\to K^* \\bar{K} - cc \\to \\pi K \\bar K$, we take into account also the final state interactions of $K \\bar K \\to K \\bar K$ and $\\pi K \\to \\pi K$. The partial decay width and mass distributions of $f_1(1285) \\to \\pi K \\bar K$ are evaluated. We get a value for the part...

    We search for B+/- --> [K^-/+ pi+/-]_D K+/- decays, where [K-/+ pi+/-]_D indicates that the K-/+ pi+/- pair originates from the decay of a D0 or D0bar. Results are based on 120 million Upsilon(4S) --> B Bbar decays collected with the BaBar detector at SLAC. We set an upper limit on the ratio R_Kpi = {Gamma(B+ --> [K- pi+]_D K+) + Gamma(B- --> [K+ pi-]_D K-)}/ {Gamma(B+ --> [K+ pi-]_D K+) + Gamma(B- --> [K- pi+]_D K-)} D0bar K-)/A(B- --> D0 K-)| D K will be difficult.

    We report the observation of the b -> d penguin-dominated decay B0 -> K*0 K*0bar with a sample of 383.2 +/- 4.2 million BBbar pairs collected with the BaBar detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy e^+e^- collider at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. The measured branching fraction is Br(B0 -> K*0 K*0bar) = [0.49^{+0.16}_{-0.13} +/- 0.05] x 10^{-6} and the fraction of longitudinal polarization f_L (B0 -> K*0 K*0bar) = 0.81^{+0.10}_{-0.12} +/- 0.06. The first error quoted is statistical and the second systematic. We also obtain an upper limit at the 90% confidence level on the branching fraction for Br(B0 ->K*0 K*0) < 0.18 x 10^{-6}.

  13. Generalised morphisms of k-graphs: k-morphs

    Kumjian, Alex; Pask, David; Sims, Aidan

    2007-01-01

    In a number of recent papers, (k+l)-graphs have been constructed from k-graphs by inserting new edges in the last l dimensions. These constructions have been motivated by C*-algebraic considerations, so they have not been treated systematically at the level of higher-rank graphs themselves. Here we introduce k-morphs, which provide a systematic unifying framework for these various constructions. We think of k-morphs as the analogue, at the level of k-graphs, of C*-correspondences between C*-a...

  14. B -> \\rho K and B -> \\pi K^* decays in SCET

    Faisel, Gaber

    2011-01-01

    Exploring hints of New Physics in the decay modes $B -> \\pi K^*$ and $B -> \\rho K$ can shed light on the $B -> K \\pi$ puzzle. In this talk we discuss supersymmetric contributions to the direct CP asymmetries of the decays $B -> \\pi K^*$ and $B -> \\rho K$ within Soft Collinear Effective Theory. We consider non-minimal flavor SUSY contributions mediated by gluino exchange and apply the Mass Insertion Approximation (MIA) in the analysis. We show that gluino contributions can enhance the CP asymmetries and accommodate the experimental results.

    DIRAC Collaboration

    2016-01-01

    The observation of hydrogen-like $\\pi K$ atoms, consisting of $\\pi^- K^+$ or $\\pi^+ K^-$ mesons, is presented. The atoms have been produced by 24 GeV/$c$ protons from the CERN PS accelerator, interacting with platinum or nickel foil targets. The breakup (ionisation) of $\\pi K$ atoms in the same targets yields characteristic $\\pi K$ pairs, called "atomic pairs", with small relative momenta in the pair centre-of-mass system. The upgraded DIRAC experiment has observed $349\\pm62$ such atomic $\\pi...

  17. First observation of γγ → K*+K*-

    The final states KS0KS0π+π- and KS0K-+π0π±, produced in two-photon reactions, have been studied using the ARGUS detector at the e+e- storage ring DORIS II at DESY. The reaction γγ → K*+K*- has been observed for the first time. Its cross section is about eight times larger than that for γγ → K*0anti K*0, but it has a similar Wγγ dependence. (orig.)

  19. On perfect k-matchings

    Lu, Hongliang

    2010-01-01

    In this paper, we generalize the notions of perfect matchings, perfect 2-matchings to perfect k-matchings and give a necessary and sufficient condition for existence of perfect k-matchings. For bipartite graphs, we show that this k-matching problem is equivalent to that matching question. Moreover, for regular graphs, we provide a sufficient condition of perfect k-matching in terms of edge connectivity.

Further, the duality between the k-Poincare algebra Un(P4) and the quantum Poincare group Pk is discussed. The recent developments of the k-deformed formalism are presented in conclusion. 51 refs

  1. Vitamin K Intake and Atherosclerosis

    It has been hypothesized that insufficient intake of vitamin K may increase soft tissue calcification due to impaired gamma-carboxylation of the vitamin K-dependent protein, matrix gamma-carboxyglutamic acid (MGP). The evidence to support this putative role of vitamin K intake in atherosclerosis is ...

  2. K-Kolmogorov homology groups

    In the present work we use the idea of the K-groups to define the K-Kolmogorov homology groups, and their induced homomorphisms and boundary operators for the case of a pair of discrete coefficient groups, where K denotes a locally-finite simplicial complex. Moreover, we prove that our homology construction is exact. (author)

    Barz, L. L.; Forkel, H.; Hammer, H. -W.; Navarra, F. S.; Nielsen, M; Ramsey-Musolf, M. J.

    1998-01-01

    We study contributions to the nucleon strange quark vector current form factors from intermediate states containing K^* mesons. We show how these contributions may be comparable in magnitude to those made by K mesons, using methods complementary to those employed in quark model studies. We also analyze the degree of theoretical uncertainty associated with K^* contributions.

    Full Text Available Članek prinaša premisleke o vstajniških praksah, o »kulturi upora«, ki je konec leta 2012 zajela slovenski prostor. Poudarjena sta dva sklopa: vpetost lokalnih manifestacij vstajništva v globalne matrice uporov, kar je tematizirano skozi akcije solidarnosti in mreženja s turškimi aktivisti, večinoma študentov v Ljubljani (primer aktivacije s pomočjo skupnosti »Occupy Gezi – Ljubljana«, in vsebinski poudarki in izostanki, to so centralizirane osrednje vsebine vstaj in obrobnejši upori, kakršna sta bila »Protest iz obupa« in solidariziranje z mariborskimi livarji. Nove kristalizacijske točke uporov se bodo verjetno odvijale na področju socialnih in delavskih pravic, ki so osrednje »novo« bojišče družbenih neenakosti, revščine in preživetja. »Nazaj k uporu!« kliče novodobni prekerni delavec, ki lahko kadarkoli izgubi službo, stanovanje, socialno zavarovanje.

  5. CP violating phase $\\gamma$ and the partial widths asymmetry in $B^- \\to \\pi^+ \\pi^- K^-$ and $B^- \\to K^+ K^- K^-$ decays

    Motivated by recent Belle measurement of the branching ratios $B^- \\to \\pi^+ \\pi^- K^-$ and $B^- \\to K^+ K^- K^-$ and $B^\\pm \\to \\chi_{c0} K^\\pm$, we investigate the CP violating asymmetry in the partial widths for the decays $B^- \\to \\pi^+ \\pi^- K^-$ and $B^- \\to K^+ K^- K^-$, which results from the interference of the nonresonant decay amplitude with the resonant amplitude $B^\\pm \\to \\chi_{c0} K^\\pm $ $ \\to\\pi^+ \\pi^- K^\\pm $ and $B^\\pm \\to \\chi_{c0} K^\\pm$ $ \\to K^+ K^- K^-$.

  6. Vitamin K and Hemostasis - Review

    Fatih Demirtaş

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available Vitamin K is necessary for the synthesis of the proteins that help control bleeding (clotting factors and thus for the normal clotting of blood. Newborns are prone to vitamin K deficiency because only small amounts of vitamin K cross the placenta and because, during the first few days after birth, their intestine does not contain bacteria to produce vitamin K. The deficiency can cause hemorrhagic disease of the newborn, characterized by a tendency to bleed. A vitamin K injection in the muscle is recommended for all newborns to reduce the risk of bleeding within the brain after delivery. (Journal of Current Pediatrics 2010; 8: 113-8

    As an alternative class of antimicrobial agents used to overcome drug-resistant infections, antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) have recently gained significant attention. In this study, we designed an improved antimicrobial peptide, K1K8, based on the molecular template of Hp1404. Compared to the wild-type Hp1404, K1K8 showed an improved antibacterial spectrum in vitro, a lower hemolytic activity, and an enhanced serum stability. Importantly, K1K8 also decreased methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bacterial counts in the wounded region in a mouse skin infection model. Interestingly, K1K8 did not induce bacterial resistance or non-specific immune response reactions. Moreover, the peptide killed bacterial cells mainly by disrupting the bacterial membrane. In summary, K1K8 has the potential to be used as an improved anti-infection agent for topical use, which opens an avenue that potential anti-infection drugs may be designed and developed from the molecular templates of AMPs.

    Branching fraction and asymmetry measurements of charmless $B^0\\to K^{*0}h^+_1h^-_2$ ($h_{1,2}$ = $K$, $\\pi$) decays are presented, using a data sample of 383 million $\\Upsilon(4S) \\to$ $B\\bar{B$} decays collected with the BaBar detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy $B$-meson factory at SLAC. The results are: ${\\cal B}$($B^0 \\to K^{*0}K^+ K^-)$ = (27.5 $\\pm$ 1.3 $\\pm$ 2.2) $\\times$ 10$^{-6}$, ${\\cal B}$($B^0$ $\\to$ $K^{*0}\\pi^+ K^-$) = (4.6 $\\pm$ 1.1 $\\pm$ 0.8) $\\times$ 10$^{-6}$ and ${\\cal B}$($B^0$ $\\to$ $K^{*0}\\pi^+\\pi^-$) = (54.5 $\\pm$ 2.9 $\\pm$ 4.3) $\\times$ 10$^{-6}$. The first errors quoted are statistical and the second are systematic. An upper limit is set for ${\\cal B}$($B^0$ $\\to$ $K^{*0}K^+ \\pi^-$) $<$ 2.2 $\\times$ 10$^{-6}$ at 90% confidence level.

  9. Charmless B→Khη(') decays with Kh=K, K*, K0*(1430), K2*(1430)

    We study the charmless decays B→Khη and B→Khη' within the framework of QCD factorization (QCDF) for Kh=K, K*, K0*(1430) and naive factorization for Kh=K2*(1430). There are three distinct types of penguin contributions: (i) b→sqq→sηq, (ii) b→sss→sηs, and (iii) b→sqq→qKh, where ηq=(uu+dd)/√(2) and ηs=ss. B→K(*)η(') decays are dominated by type-II and type-III penguin contributions. The interference, constructive for Kη' and K*η and destructive for Kη and K*η', between type-II and type-III diagrams explains the pattern of Γ(B→Kη')>>Γ(B→Kη) and Γ(B→K*η')*η). Within QCDF, the observed large rate of the Kη' mode can be naturally explained without invoking flavor-singlet contributions or something exotic. The decay pattern for B→K0*(1430)η(') decays depends on whether the scalar meson K0*(1430) is an excited state of κ or a lowest-lying P-wave qq state. Hence, the experimental measurements of B→K0*(1430)η(') can be used to explore the quark structure of K0*(1430). If K0*(1430) is a low-lying qq bound state, we find that K0*η has a rate slightly larger than K0*η' owing to the fact that the η-η' mixing angle in the ηq, ηs flavor basis is less than 45 degree sign , in agreement with experiment. The type-III penguin diagram does not contribute to B→K2*η(') under the factorization hypothesis and the type-II diagram dominates. The ratio Γ(B→K2*η')/Γ(B→K2*η) is expected to be of order 2.5 as a consequence of (i) |fη's|>|fηs| and (ii) a destructive (constructive) interference between type-I and type-II penguin diagrams for K2*η (K2*η'). However, the predicted rates of B→K2*η(') in naive factorization are too small by 1 order of magnitude and this issue remains to be resolved. There are two K(*)η(') modes in which direct CP asymmetries have been measured with significance around 4σ: ACP(K-η)=-0.37±0.09 and ACP(K*0η)=0.19±0.05. In QCDF, power corrections from penguin annihilation which are needed to

    The authors present the first search for the decay B{sup 0} {yields} K{sub S}{sup 0} K{sub S}{sup 0} K{sub L}{sup 0} using a data sample of 232 million B{bar B} pairs. They find no statistically significant evidence for the non-resonant component of this decay. Our central value for the branching fraction, assuming the tru Dalitz distribution is uniform and excluding the {phi} resonance, is {Beta}(B{sup 0} {yields} K{sub S}{sup 0} K{sub S}{sup 0} K{sub L}{sup 0}) = (2.4{sub -2.5}{sup +2.7} {+-} 0.6) x 10{sup -6} where the errors are statistical and systematic, respectively. They set a single-side Bayesian upper limit of {Beta}(B{sup 0} {yields} K{sub S}{sup 0} K{sub S}{sup 0} K{sub L}{sup 0}) < 6.4 x 10{sup -6} at 90% confidence level using a uniform prior probability for physical values. Assuming the worst-case true Dalitz distribution, where the signal is entirely in the region of lowest efficiency, the 90% confidence level upper limit is {Beta}(B{sup 0} {yields} K{sub S}{sup 0} K{sub S}{sup 0} K{sub L}{sup 0}) < 14 x 10{sup -6}.

  11. Charmless B→Khη(') decays with Kh=K, K*, K0*(1430), K2*(1430)

    2010-08-01

    We study the charmless decays B→Khη and B→Khη' within the framework of QCD factorization (QCDF) for Kh=K, K*, K0*(1430) and naive factorization for Kh=K2*(1430). There are three distinct types of penguin contributions: (i) b→sqq¯→sηq, (ii) b→sss¯→sηs, and (iii) b→sqq¯→qK¯h, where ηq=(uu¯+dd¯)/2 and ηs=ss¯. B→K(*)η(') decays are dominated by type-II and type-III penguin contributions. The interference, constructive for Kη' and K*η and destructive for Kη and K*η', between type-II and type-III diagrams explains the pattern of Γ(B→Kη')≫Γ(B→Kη) and Γ(B→K*η')≪Γ(B→K*η). Within QCDF, the observed large rate of the Kη' mode can be naturally explained without invoking flavor-singlet contributions or something exotic. The decay pattern for B→K0*(1430)η(') decays depends on whether the scalar meson K0*(1430) is an excited state of κ or a lowest-lying P-wave qq¯ state. Hence, the experimental measurements of B→K0*(1430)η(') can be used to explore the quark structure of K0*(1430). If K0*(1430) is a low-lying qq¯ bound state, we find that K0*η has a rate slightly larger than K0*η' owing to the fact that the η-η' mixing angle in the ηq, ηs flavor basis is less than 45°, in agreement with experiment. The type-III penguin diagram does not contribute to B→K2*η(') under the factorization hypothesis and the type-II diagram dominates. The ratio Γ(B→K2*η')/Γ(B→K2*η) is expected to be of order 2.5 as a consequence of (i) |fη's|>|fηs| and (ii) a destructive (constructive) interference between type-I and type-II penguin diagrams for K2*η (K2*η'). However, the predicted rates of B→K2*η(') in naive factorization are too small by 1 order of magnitude and this issue remains to be resolved. There are two K(*)η(') modes in which direct CP asymmetries have been measured with significance around 4σ: ACP(K-η)=-0.37±0.09 and ACP(K¯*0η)=0.19±0.05.

    We report the observation of charmless hadronic decays of charged B mesons to the final state K+K-pi+. Using a data sample of 347.5 fb^-1 collected at the Y(4S) resonance with the BABAR detector, we observe 429+/-43 signal events with a significance of 9.6 sigma. We measure the inclusive branching fraction BF(B+ --> K+K-pi+) = [5.0+/-0.5(stat.)+/-0.5(syst.)]x10^-6. Inspection of the Dalitz plot of signal candidates shows a broad structure peaking near 1.5 GeV/c^2 in the K+K- invariant mass distribution. We find the direct CP asymmetry to be consistent with zero.

  13. Photoproduction of the K+ K0-(1750)

    Mitchell, Ryan Edward

    2003-01-01

    While photoproduction has often been advertised as an important environment in which to study light meson spectroscopy, solid experimental results are sparse. In fact, beyond the relatively straightforward photoproduction of the {rho}, {omega}, and {phi} mesons, the few results of exclusive photoproduction that do exist are poorly understood, and several, perhaps, have even been misinterpreted. After extensively reviewing the sometimes tenuous history of the exclusive photoproduction of the ''{rho}{sup 1}(1600)'', the ''{omega}{pi}{sup 0}(1250)'', the ''{omega}(1650)'', and the ''K{sup +}K{sup -}(1750)'', new results from the E831/FOCUS photoproduction experiment at Fermilab are presented which address the interpretation of the K{sup +}K{sup -}(1750). This enhancement in low-p{sub T} K{sup +}K{sup -} pairs at a mass near 1750 MeV/c{sup 2} has been observed by several previous photoproduction experiments, but, despite several apparent inconsistencies, it has always been interpreted as the J{sup PC} = 1{sup --} {phi}(1680) meson. With nearly two orders of magnitude more events than any previous observation of the K{sup +}K{sup -}(1750), and based on precise measurements of its mass and width, and its absence from the K*K final state, the FOCUS data can finally render this interpretation implausible. In addition, several steps have been taken towards establishing a new interpretation. Based on limited angular analyses of its decay and the beam energy dependence of its production, they argue that, in the absence of any wild interference scenarios, the K{sup +}K{sup -}(1750) has J{sup PC} {ne} 1{sup --}, and, in fact, the most likely assignment appears to be 2{sup ++}. It is hoped that this work can help set the stage for future reevaluations and new insights in photoproduction.

    The first flavor-tagged amplitude analysis of the decay D0 to the self-conjugate final state K+K-pi+pi- is presented. Data from the CLEO II.V, CLEO III, and CLEO-c detectors are used, from which around 3000 signal decays are selected. The three most significant amplitudes, which contribute to the model that best fits the data, are phirho0, K1(1270)+-K-+, and non-resonant K+K-pi+pi-. Separate amplitude analyses of D0 and D0-bar candidates indicate no CP violation among the amplitudes at the level of 5% to 30% depending on the mode. In addition, the sensitivity to the CP-violating parameter gamma/phi3 of a sample of 2000 B+ -> D0-tilde(K+K-pi+pi-)K+ decays, where D0-tilde is a D0 or D0-bar, collected at LHCb or a future flavor facility, is estimated to be (11.3 +/- 0.3) degrees using the favored model.

  16. High Precision 40K/39K Ratio Determination

    Naumenko, M. O.; Mezger, K.; Nagler, T. F.; Villa, I. M.

    2012-12-01

    Potassium is one of the eight most abundant chemical elements in the Earth's crust and a major element in many rock-forming minerals. The isotope 40K is radioactive and undergoes β- decay to 40Ca (ca. 89.3%) and electron capture to 40Ar (ca. 10.7%). Both decays can potentially be used as dating systems. The most commonly used branch is the decay of 40K to 40Ar because it can yield highly precise ages. Both decay schemes rely on the knowledge of the 40K branching ratio and the natural 40K abundance. A 40K abundance of 0.011672±41 % was measured on terrestrial material [1]. The relative uncertainty of 0.35 % has not been improved since. Recent improvements in the precision of mass spectrometric measurements have led to the situation that the uncertainties on the K decay constant and the abundance of 40K are a major source of uncertainty on the measured ages. A more precise definition of the 40K decay constant was attempted by different research groups within the last decade [2-9] but the goal of obtaining 0.1 % relative uncertainty on K-Ar ages for geological materials, as requested by the EARTHtime initiative, has not been achieved yet. In order to improve on this situation we studied the abundances of the K isotopes in terrestrial standards. A ThermoFischer Triton+ thermal ionisation mass spectrometer was used for K isotope ratio measurements of the NIST SRM 918b K standard loaded on Ta filaments with 0.1M phosphoric acid. Three techniques were applied: (A) dynamic measurement with in-run normalisation to the IUPAC value 41K/39K=0.072168; (B) a simple total evaporation procedure; (C) the "NBL-modified" total evaporation [10]. The 40K ion beam was measured in a Faraday cup with a 1E12 Ω resistor; 39K and 41K were collected in Faraday cups with 1E11 Ω resistors. Amplifier gains were intercalibrated by supplying fixed voltages off-line. Different measurement techniques were combined with different loading procedures. We also tested ionisation yields for the

  18. Distance k-Sectors Exist

    Imai, Keiko; Matoušek, Jiří; Reem, Daniel; Tokuyama, Takeshi

    2009-01-01

    The bisector of two nonempty sets P and Q in a metric space is the set of all points with equal distance to P and to Q. A distance k-sector of P and Q, where k is an integer, is a (k-1)-tuple (C_1, C_2, ..., C_{k-1}) such that C_i is the bisector of C_{i-1} and C_{i+1} for every i = 1, 2, ..., k-1, where C_0 = P and C_k = Q. This notion, for the case where P and Q are points in Euclidean plane, was introduced by Asano, Matousek, and Tokuyama, motivated by a question of Murata in VLSI design. They established the existence and uniqueness of the distance trisector in this special case. We prove the existence of a distance k-sector for all k and for every two disjoint, nonempty, closed sets P and Q in Euclidean spaces of any (finite) dimension, or more generally, in proper geodesic spaces (uniqueness remains open). The core of the proof is a new notion of k-gradation for P and Q, whose existence (even in an arbitrary metric space) is proved using the Knaster-Tarski fixed point theorem, by a method introduced by ...

  1. $K^+$-nucleus potentials from $K^+$-nucleon amplitudes

    Friedman, E

    2016-01-01

    Optical potentials for $K^+$-nucleus interactions are constructed from $K^+$-nucleon amplitudes using recently developed algorithm based on $K^+$-N kinematics in the nuclear medium. With the deep penetration of $K^+$ mesons into the nucleus at momenta below 800~MeV/c it is possible to test this approach with greater sensitivity than hitherto done with $K^-$ and pions. The energy-dependence of experimental reaction and total cross sections on nuclei is better reproduced with this approach compared to fixed-energy amplitudes. The inclusion of Pauli correlations in the medium also improves the agreement between calculation and experiment. The absolute scale of the cross sections is reproduced very well for $^6$Li but for C, Si and Ca calculated cross sections are (23$\\pm4$)\\% smaller than experiment, in agreement with earlier analyses. Two phenomenological models that produce such missing strength suggest that the imaginary part of the potential needs about 40\\% enhancement.

  2. Study of CP violation in Dalitz-plot analyses of B0 to K K-KS, B to K K-K , and B to KSKSK

    Lees, J.P.

    2012-03-20

    We perform amplitude analyses of the decays B{sup 0} {yields} K{sup +}K{sup -}K{sub s}{sup 0}, B{sup +} {yields} K{sup +}K{sup -}K{sup +}, and B{sup +} {yields}, and measure CP-violating parameters and partial branching fractions. The results are based on a data sample of approximately 470 x 10{sup 6} B{bar B} decays, collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B factory at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. For B{sup +} {yields} K{sup +}K{sup -}K{sup +}, we find a direct CP asymmetry in B{sup +} {yields} {phi}(1020)K{sup +} of A{sub CP} = (12.8 {+-} 4.4 {+-} 1.3)%, which differs from zero by 2.8{sigma}. For B{sup 0} {yields} K{sup +}K{sup -}K{sub s}{sup 0}, we measure the CP-violating phase {beta}{sub eff} ({phi}(1020)K{sub s}{sup 0}) = (21 {+-} 6 {+-} 2){sup o}. For B{sup +} {yields} K{sub s}{sup 0}K{sub s}{sup 0}K{sup +}, we measure an overall direct CP asymmetry of A{sub CP} = (4{sub -5}{sup +4} {+-} 2)%. We also perform an angular-moment analysis of the three channels, and determine that the f{sub X}(1500) state can be described well by the sum of the resonances f{sub 0}(1500), f{prime}{sub 2}(1525), and f{sub 0}(1710).

  9. On Ramsey (3K2, K3) - minimal graphs

    Wijaya, Kristiana; Baskoro, Edy Tri; Assiyatun, Hilda; Suprijanto, Djoko

    2016-02-01

    The Ramsey graph theory has many interesting applications, such as in the fields of communications, information retrieval, and decision making. One of growing topics in Ramsey theory is Ramsey minimal graph. For any given graphs G and H, find graphs F such that any red-blue coloring of all edges of F contains either a red copy of G or a blue copy of H. If this condition is not satisfied by the graph F - e, then we call the graph F as a Ramsey (G, H) - minimal. In this paper, we derive the properties of (3K2, K3) - minimal graphs. We, then, characterize all Ramsey (3K2, K3) - minimal graphs.

    A Dalitz plot analysis of approximately 12500 D0 events reconstructed in the hadronic decay D0-->K0bar K+ K- is presented. This analysis is based on a data sample of 91.5 fb-1 collected with the BaBar detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy e+ e- storage rings at SLAC running at center-of-mass energies on and 40 MeV below the Y4S resonance. The events are selected from e+ e- --> c cbar annihilations using the decay D*+ --> D0 pi+. The following ratio of branching fractions has been obtained: BR = Gamma(D0-->K0bar K+ K-)/Gamma(D0-->K0bar pi+ pi-) = (15.8+/-0.1(stat.)+/-0.5(syst.)x 10-2 Estimates of fractions and phases for resonant and non-resonant contributions to the Dalitz plot are also presented. The a0(980)-->K Kbar projection has been extracted with little background. A search for CP asymmetries on the Dalitz plot has been performed.

    k2photometry reads, reduces and detrends K2 photometry and searches for transiting planets. MAST database pixel files are used as input; the output includes raw lightcurves, detrended lightcurves and a transit search can be performed as well. Stellar variability is not typically well-preserved but parameters can be tweaked to change that. The BLS algorithm used to detect periodic events is a Python implementation by Ruth Angus and Dan Foreman-Mackey (https://github.com/dfm/python-bls).

  12. POSITIVE SOLUTIONS TO(k,n-k) NONHOMOGENEOUS BOUNDARYVALUE PROBLEM

    2012-01-01

    By the Schauder fixed point theory,this paper establishes the existence of positive solutions to a(k,n k) m-point boundary value problem.We show that there exists a positive constant b such that the problem has at least one positive solution when the homogeneous boundary parameter is smaller than b,and no positive solution when this parameter is greater than b.

  13. K\\bar{K}-Continuum and Isoscalar Nucleon Form Factors

    Hammer, H. -W.; Ramsey-Musolf, M. J.

    1999-01-01

    We analyse the isoscalar vector current form factors of the nucleon using dispersion relations. In addition to the usual vector meson poles, we account for the K\\bar{K}-continuum contribution by drawing upon a recent analytic continuation of KN scattering amplitudes. For the Pauli form factor all strength in the \\phi region is already given by the continuum contribution, whereas for the Dirac form factor additional strength in the \\phi region is required. The pertinent implications for the le...

    Results of a search for Kr-78 double K-capture at the second stage of the experiment with high-pressure copper proportional counters are presented. The method is based on comparison of spectra measured with natural and enriched krypton. The total exposure of the low background measurements is for Kr-78 152 g*yr and for Kr-nat 106 g*yr. An excess of events was observed in the analysis of Kr-78 selected data collected during 2008-2010 years. This excess could correspond to a double K-capture of Kr-78 with the half-life of T_{1/2}(2K,2\

  16. Discriminative k-means clustering

    Arandjelovic, Ognjen

    2013-01-01

    The k-means algorithm is a partitional clustering method. Over 60 years old, it has been successfully used for a variety of problems. The popularity of k-means is in large part a consequence of its simplicity and efficiency. In this paper we are inspired by these appealing properties of k-means in the development of a clustering algorithm which accepts the notion of "positively" and "negatively" labelled data. The goal is to discover the cluster structure of both positive and negative data in...

  17. k-Parabolic Subspace Arrangements

    Severs, Christopher; White, Jacob

    2009-01-01

    Nous généralisons les arrangements k-égaux à tous les groupes de réflexions finis réels. Les arrangements ainsi obtenus sont dits k-paraboliques. Dans le cas où k = 2 nous retrouvons les arrangements de Coxeter qui sont bien connus. En 1971, Brieskorn démontra que le groupe fondamental associé au complément (complexe) de l'arrangement de Coxeter de type W est en fait isomorphe au groupe pure d'Artin de type W . En 1996, Khovanov donne une description algébrique du groupe fondamental du complé...

  1. k-Gap Interval Graphs

    Fomin, Fedor V; Golovach, Petr; Suchan, Karol; Szeider, Stefan; van Leeuwen, Erik Jan; Vatshelle, Martin; Villanger, Yngve

    2011-01-01

    We initiate the study of a new parameterization of graph problems. In a multiple interval representation of a graph, each vertex is associated to at least one interval of the real line, with an edge between two vertices if and only if an interval associated to one vertex has a nonempty intersection with an interval associated to the other vertex. A graph on n vertices is a k-gap interval graph if it has a multiple interval representation with at most n+k intervals in total. In order to scale up the nice algorithmic properties of interval graphs (where k=0), we parameterize graph problems by k, and find FPT algorithms for several problems, including Feedback Vertex Set, Dominating Set, Independent Set, Clique, Clique Cover, and Multiple Interval Transversal. The Coloring problem turns out to be W[1]-hard and we design an XP algorithm for the recognition problem.

    K You 48-2 is a new combination of early hybrid rice with good grain quality and high yield, developed by combining male sterile line K-Qing A having japonica cytoplasm and indica genome aodrestorer line Ce 48-2. In the regional trial of Hubei Province in 1991, its yield was 4.4% higher than that of the CK Weiyou 48-2,

  4. Yrast decays in 43K

    High-spin states in 43K were studied using the 9Be(36S,pnγ)43K reaction. Threefold (pγ1γ2) coincidence data and γ-ray intensity ratios were used to establish a decay scheme and identify negative- and positive-parity yrast decay chains. The 15/2- yrast state is relatively poorly aligned prior to decay. Energies of positive-parity levels predicted by Johnstone are in good agreement with experiment

  5. Spherical k-Means Clustering

    Kurt Hornik; Ingo Feinerer; Martin Kober; Christian Buchta

    2012-01-01

    Clustering text documents is a fundamental task in modern data analysis, requiring approaches which perform well both in terms of solution quality and computational efficiency. Spherical k-means clustering is one approach to address both issues, employing cosine dissimilarities to perform prototype-based partitioning of term weight representations of the documents. This paper presents the theory underlying the standard spherical k-means problem and suitable extensions, and intr...

    We analyze the three-body charmless decay B+- -> K+-K+-K-+ using a sample of 226.0 +- 2.5 million BBbar pairs collected by the BABAR detector. We measure the total branching fraction and CP asymmetry to be B = (35.2 +- 0.9 +-1.6) x 10^{-6} and A_CP = (-1.7 +- 2.6 +- 1.5)%. We fit the Dalitz plot distribution using an isobar model and measure the magnitudes and phases of the decay coefficients. We find no evidence of CP violation for the individual components of the isobar model. The decay dynamics is dominated by the K+K- S-wave, for which we perform a partial-wave analysis in the region m(K+K-) < 2 GeV/c^2. Significant production of the f0(980) resonance, and of a spin zero state near 1.55 GeV/c^2 are required in the isobar model description of the data. The partial-wave analysis supports this observation.

  8. Acetylcholinesterase Reactivators (HI-6, Obidoxime, Trimedoxime, K027, K075, K127, K203, K282: Structural Evaluation of Human Serum Albumin Binding and Absorption Kinetics

    Filip Zemek

    2013-08-01

    Full Text Available Acetylcholinesterase (AChE reactivators (oximes are compounds predominantly targeting the active site of the enzyme. Toxic effects of organophosphates nerve agents (OPNAs are primarily related to their covalent binding to AChE and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE, critical detoxification enzymes in the blood and in the central nervous system (CNS. After exposure to OPNAs, accumulation of acetylcholine (ACh overstimulates receptors and blocks neuromuscular junction transmission resulting in CNS toxicity. Current efforts at treatments for OPNA exposure are focused on non-quaternary reactivators, monoisonitrosoacetone oximes (MINA, and diacylmonoxime reactivators (DAM. However, so far only quaternary oximes have been approved for use in cases of OPNA intoxication. Five acetylcholinesterase reactivator candidates (K027, K075, K127, K203, K282 are presented here, together with pharmacokinetic data (plasma concentration, human serum albumin binding potency. Pharmacokinetic curves based on intramuscular application of the tested compounds are given, with binding information and an evaluation of structural relationships. Human Serum Albumin (HSA binding studies have not yet been performed on any acetylcholinesterase reactivators, and correlations between structure, concentration curves and binding are vital for further development. HSA bindings of the tested compounds were 1% (HI-6, 7% (obidoxime, 6% (trimedoxime, and 5%, 10%, 4%, 15%, and 12% for K027, K075, K127, K203, and K282, respectively.

  9. Tree and penguin amplitudes from B to pi pi, K pi, K bar{K}

    Zenczykowski, Piotr

    2009-01-01

    The question of the relative size of tree and penguin amplitudes is analyzed using the data on B to pi pi, B^+ to pi^+ K^0, and B^+ to K^+ \\bar{K}^0 decays. Our discussion involves an estimate of SU(3) breaking in the final quark-pair-creating hadronization process. The estimate is based on Regge phenomenology, which many years ago proved very successful in the description of soft hadronic physics. Accepting the Regge prediction as solid, it is then shown that the relative size and phase of t...

    2014-01-01

    We present a new reaction, complementary to the $J/\\psi\\rightarrow \\eta K^{*0}\\bar{K}^{*0}$ from which an $h_1$ resonance with mass around $1830$ MeV was reported from a BESIII experiment. The new reaction is $\\eta_c\\rightarrow \\phi K^*\\bar{K}^*$, or $\\eta_c(2S)\\rightarrow \\phi K^*\\bar{K}^*$. Using the information from the analysis of $J/\\psi\\rightarrow \\eta K^{*0}\\bar{K}^{*0}$, we find that the $K^*\\bar{K}^*$ invariant mass distribution for those two $\\eta_c$ decays exhibits a clear peak aro...

  13. Study of eta K(K)over-bar and eta ' K(K)over-bar with the fixed center approximation to Faddeev equations

    Liang, W.H.; Xiao, Chu Wen; Oset Báguena, Eulogio

    In the present work we investigate the three-body systems of eta K (K) over bar and eta'K (K) over bar, by taking the fixed center approximation to Faddeev equations. We find a clear and stable resonance structure around 1490 MeV in the squared eta K (K) over bar scattering amplitude, which is not sensitive to the renormalization parameters. Conversely, we get only an enhancement effect of the threshold in the eta'K (K) over bar amplitude that indicates the difficulty to bind the eta'K (K) ov...

  15. $K^{+}$ momentum spectrum from $(K^{-},K^{+})$ reactions in intranuclear cascade model

    Nara, Y; Harada, T; Engel, A

    1996-01-01

    In a framework of intranuclear cascade (INC) type calculation, we study a momentum spectrum in reactions \\KK at a beam momentum of 1.65 GeV/c. INC model calculations are compared with the relativistic impulse approximation (RIA) calculations to perform the detailed study of the reaction mechanism. We find that the INC model can reproduce the experimental data on various targets. Especially, in the low-momentum region, the forward-angle cross sections of the $(K^-,K^+)$ reaction on from light to heavy targets are consistently explained with the two-step strangeness exchange and production processes with various intermediate mesons, and $\\phi$, $a_0$ and $f_0$ productions and their decay into $K^+K^-$. In the two-step processes, inclusion of meson and hyperon resonances is found to be essential.

  17. k-fold coloring of planar graphs

    2010-01-01

    A k-fold n-coloring of G is a mapping φ: V (G) → Zk(n) where Zk(n) is the collection of all ksubsets of {1,2,...,n} such that φ(u) ∩φ(v) = φ if uv ∈ E(G).If G has a k-fold n-coloring,i.e.,G is k-fold n-colorable.Let the smallest integer n such that G is k-fold n-colorable be the k-th chromatic number,denoted by χk(G).In this paper,we show that any outerplanar graph is k-fold 2k-colorable or k-fold χk(C*)-colorable,where C* is a shortest odd cycle of G.Moreover,we investigate that every planar graph with odd girth at least 10k-9(k 3) can be k-fold (2k + 1)-colorable.

  18. Glial K(+) Clearance and Cell Swelling

    Macaulay, Nanna; Zeuthen, Thomas

    2012-01-01

    space into the glial cell are debated. Although spatial buffer currents may occur, their quantitative contribution to K(+) clearance is uncertain. The concept of spatial buffering of K(+) precludes intracellular K(+) accumulation and is therefore (i) difficult to reconcile with the K(+) accumulation...... repeatedly observed in glial cells during K(+) clearance and (ii) incompatible with K(+)-dependent glial cell swelling. K(+) uptake into non-voltage clamped cultured glial cells is carried out by the Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase and the Na(+)/K(+)/Cl(-) cotransporter in combination. In brain slices and intact optic...... nerve, however, only the Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase has been demonstrated to be involved in stimulus-evoked K(+) clearance. The glial cell swelling associated with K(+) clearance is prevented under conditions that block the activity of the Na(+)/K(+)/Cl(-) cotransporter. The Na(+)/K(+)/Cl(-) cotransporter is...

  20. K-theory and arithmetic

    The main focus in these notes is on the relation between special values of zeta-functions of global fields and orders of cohomology groups and algebraic K-theory groups attached to rings of integers, a relation extending Dirichlet's analytic class number formula. The function field case serves as a motivation for the study of etale cohomology and its relation to Iwasawa theory. We describe the basic properties of etale cohomology groups, and study in particular Galois descent and co-descent for Galois extensions, the modifications - positive etale cohomology - needed to treat the case of the prime 2, and suitable 'globalizations'. We provide a brief introduction to Iwasawa theory, concentrating on the relation between the Main Conjecture and the orders of certain etale cohomology groups. The connection to algebraic K-groups is obtained via etale Chern characters, and we discuss the recent progress on the Quillen-Lichtenbaum Conjecture, which is implied by a conjecture of Bloch-Kato on the Galois symbols in Milnor K-theory. This also leads to a reformulation of the Lichtenbaum Conjectures in terms of motivic cohomology rather than K-theory. Finally, we describe the impact of these results on the study of the K-groups of Z and their relation to Vandiver's Conjecture. (author)

    Mandell, M. J.; Davis, V. A.; Gardner, B. M.; Mikellides, I. G.; Cooke, D. L.; Minor, J.

    2004-01-01

    Nascap-2k is the modern replacement for the older 3-D charging codes NASCAP/GEO, NASCAP/LEO, POLAR, and DynaPAC. Built on the DynaPAC kernel and incorporating surface charging, environment and space potential models from the older codes, Nascap-2k performs charging calculations for a wide variety of space environments under control of a unified graphical interface. In this paper we illustrate the use of Nascap-2k for spacecraft charging calculations. We touch on some of the unique physical and mathematical models on which the code is based. Examples/demos include the use of Object Toolkit, charging calculations in geosynchronous substorm, solar wind, low earth orbit, and auroral environments, and display and analysis of surface potentials, space potentials and particle trajectories.

  4. Spherical k-Means Clustering

    2012-09-01

    Full Text Available Clustering text documents is a fundamental task in modern data analysis, requiring approaches which perform well both in terms of solution quality and computational efficiency. Spherical k-means clustering is one approach to address both issues, employing cosine dissimilarities to perform prototype-based partitioning of term weight representations of the documents.This paper presents the theory underlying the standard spherical k-means problem and suitable extensions, and introduces the R extension package skmeans which provides a computational environment for spherical k-means clustering featuring several solvers: a fixed-point and genetic algorithm, and interfaces to two external solvers (CLUTO and Gmeans. Performance of these solvers is investigated by means of a large scale benchmark experiment.

  8. Multi-Meson Model applied to $D^+ \\to K^+ K^- K^+$

    Aoude, R T; Reis, A C dos; Robilotta, M R

    2016-01-01

    Matrix elements of weak currents involving light multi-meson states are important in many hadronic decays of both heavy leptons and heavy mesons. In this paper we focus on the latter case where the current size of the data set demands better models. The specific case of three-kaon weak matrix elements is considered and expressed as a relatively simple structure, which generalizes naturally the concept of form factor. We propose a model for the decay $D^+ \\to K^+ K^- K^+$ as an alternative to isobar model, with free parameter predicted by the theory to be fine-tuned by a fit to data. An important qualitative outcome is that we encompass naturally all final states topologies, which involve necessarily proper multi-particle structures and cannot be decomposed into simpler two-body processes. This aspect represents a significant improvement when compared to isobar model, often employed in analyses of heavy-meson decay data.

    A high-statistics sample of photoproduced charm from the FOCUS experiment has been used to search for direct CP violation in the decay rates for D+-->K(S)pi+ and D+-->K(S)K+. We have measured the following asymmetry parameters relative to D+-->K-pi+pi+: A(CP)(K(S)pi+) = (-1.6+/-1.5+/-0.9)%, A(CP)(K(S)K+) = (+6.9+/-6.0+/-1.5)%, and A(CP)(K(S)K+) = (+7.1+/-6.1+/-1.2)% relative to D+-->K(S)pi+. We have also measured the relative branching ratios and found Gamma(D+-->K(0)pi+)/Gamma(D+-->K-pi+pi+) = (30.60+/-0.46+/-0.32)%, Gamma(D+-->K(0)K+)/Gamma(D+-->K-pi+pi+) = (6.04+/-0.35+/-0.30)%, and Gamma(D+-->K(0)K+)/Gamma(D+-->K(0)pi+) = (19.96+/-1.19+/-0.96)%.

  11. Recent Results from the K2K - Neutrino Oscillation Experiment

    Hill, James E.

    2002-12-01

    The K2K Long-Baseline neutrino oscillation experiment has been aquiring data since mid-1999 and has analysed those up to July of 2001. Fifty-six fully contained events are observed in the fiducial volume of the far detector where 80.6-8.0+7.3 are expected based partly on measurements near the beam production point. There is virtually no background for the contained event search. The methods established in this experiment are crucial for operation of future similar experiments to probe the nature of mixing in the neutral lepton sector, a necessary step in understanding the nature of family structure and of mass itself. A brief history and a few notes about the future and direction of the field precede the description of the experiment and its results.

    2012-01-01

    Let G = (V,E) be a graph. For each edge ei of G, a new vertexe′i is taken and the resulting set of vertices is denoted by E1(G). Theline splitting graph Ls(G) of a graph G is defined as the graph havingvertex set E(G)SE1(G) with two vertices adjacent if they correspondto adjacent edges of G or one corresponds to an element e′i of E1(G)and the other to an element ej of E(G) where ej is in N(ei). In thispaper we characterize graphs whose line splitting graphs are k − treesand k − ctrees.

  13. Hadronization in tau -> K K pi nu_tau decays

    Roig, Pablo

    2008-01-01

    Hadronization in tau -> K K pi nu_tau decays is driven by both vector and axial-vector currents that we study, guided by the following principles: The 1/N_C expansion -worked out at leading order, considering only the contribution of the lightest spin one resonances-, approximate chiral symmetry at low energies and the appropriate asymptotic behaviour we demand to the associated form factors. All these features are implemented in the resonance theory. Most of its couplings are determined by imposing the short-distance requirements of vector and axial-vector spectral functions within QCD. We plan to improve our prediction of the hadronic spectra using recently available experimental data.

  14. Strong binding and shrinkage of single and double kbar~nuclear systems (K^-pp, K^-ppn, K^-K^-p and K^-K^-pp) predicted by Faddeev-Yakubovsky calculations

    Maeda, Shuji; Yamazaki, Toshimitsu

    2013-01-01

    Non-relativistic Faddeev and Faddeev-Yakubovsky calculations were made for K^-pp, K^-ppn, K^-K^-p and K^-K^-pp kaonic nuclear clusters, where the quasi bound states were treated as bound states by employing real separable potential models for the K^-K^- and the K^-nucleon interactions as well as for the nucleon-nucleon interaction. The binding energies and spatial shrinkages of these states, obtained for various values of the KbarN interaction, were found to increase rapidly with the KbarN interaction strength. Their behaviors are shown in a reference diagram to overview possible changes by varying the KbarN interaction in the dense nuclear medium. Using the Lambda(1405) ansatz with a PDG mass of 1405 MeV/c^2 for K^-p, the following ground-state binding energies together with the wavefunctions were obtained: 51.5 MeV (K^-pp), 69 MeV (K^-ppn), 30.4 MeV (K^-K^-p) and 93 MeV (K^-K^-pp), which are in good agreement with previous results of variational calculation based on the Akaishi-Yamazaki coupled-channel pote...

    The excitation function for the $pp\\to ppK^+K^-$ reaction revealed a significant enhancement close to threshold which may plausibly be assigned to the influence of the $pK^-$ and $K^+K^-$ final state interactions. In an improved reanalysis of COSY-11 data for the $pp\\to ppK^+K^-$ reaction at excess energies of Q = 10 MeV and 28 MeV including the proton-K- interaction the enhancement is confirmed. Invariant mass distributions for the two- and three-particle subsystems allow to test at low excess energies the ansatz and parameters for the description of the interaction in the ppK+K- system as derived from the COSY-ANKE data. Finally, based for the first time on the low energy K+K- invariant mass distributions and the generalized Dalitz plot analysis, we estimate the scattering length for the K+K- interaction to be |Re(a_K^+K^-)| = 0.5 + 4.0 -0.5 fm and Im(a_K^+K^-) = 3.0 +- 3.0 fm.

    The T2K experiment is a long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment. Its main goal is to measure the last unknown lepton sector mixing angle θ13 by observing νe appearance in a νμ beam. It also aims to make a precision measurement of the known oscillation parameters, Δm232 and sin22θ23, via νμ disappearance studies. Other goals of the experiment include various neutrino cross-section measurements and sterile neutrino searches. The experiment uses an intense proton beam generated by the J-PARC accelerator in Tokai, Japan, and is composed of a neutrino beamline, a near detector complex (ND280), and a far detector (Super-Kamiokande) located 295 km away from J-PARC. This paper provides a comprehensive review of the instrumentation aspect of the T2K experiment and a summary of the vital information for each subsystem.

  19. Lidar study of K layer

    Jiao, Jing

    2016-07-01

    A double-laser-beam lidar was successfully developed in 2010 to measure the K layer over Yanqing County, Beijing (40.5°N, 116.2°E). Comprehensive statistical analyses of sporadic K (Ks) layer parameters were conducted using two years of lidar data, and the parameters of the Ks layers and their distribution obtained by the analyses are described. The seasonal distribution of Ks occurrence was obtained, with two maxima observed in January and July, respectively. The seasonal distributions of sporadic E (Es) occurrence over Beijing differ from those of Ks occurrence. However, good correlations between Es and Ks in case by case study were found. We also found that four Ks events with peak altitudes lower than 90 km were associated with large and sharp temperature increases in five comparative examples.

    The first measurements of the coherence factor R_{K_S^0K\\pi} and the average strong--phase difference \\delta^{K_S^0K\\pi} in D^0 \\to K_S^0 K^\\mp\\pi^\\pm decays are reported. These parameters can be used to improve the determination of the unitary triangle angle \\gamma in B^- \\rightarrow \\widetilde{D}K^-$ decays, where $\\widetilde{D}$ is either a D^0 or a D^0-bar meson decaying to the same final state, and also in studies of charm mixing. The measurements of the coherence factor and strong-phase difference are made using quantum-correlated, fully-reconstructed D^0D^0-bar pairs produced in e^+e^- collisions at the \\psi(3770) resonance. The measured values are R_{K_S^0K\\pi} = 0.73 \\pm 0.08 and \\delta^{K_S^0K\\pi} = (8.3 \\pm 15.2)$^\\circ$ for an unrestricted kinematic region and R_{K*K} = 1.00 \\pm 0.16 and \\delta^{K*K} = (26.5 \\pm 15.8)$^\\circ$ for a region where the combined K_S^0 \\pi^\\pm invariant mass is within 100 MeV/c^2 of the K^{*}(892)^\\pm mass.

  7. Dose due to {sup 40}K

    2011-10-15

    The dose due to {sup 40}K has been estimated. Potassium is one of the most abundant elements in nature, being approximately 2% of the Earth's crust. Potassium has three isotopes {sup 39}K, {sup 40}K and {sup 41}K, two are stable while {sup 40}K is radioactive with a half life of 1.2x10{sup 9} years; there is 0.0117% {sup 40}K-to-K ratio. Potassium plays an important role in plants, animals and humans growth and reproduction. Due to the fact that K is an essential element for humans, {sup 40}K is the most abundant radioisotope in human body. In order to keep good health conditions K must be intake at daily basis trough food and beverages, however when K in ingested above the requirements produce adverse health effects in persons with renal, cardiac and hypertension problems or suffering diabetes. In 89.3% {sup 40}K decays to {sup 40}C through {beta}-decay, in 10.3% decays through electronic capture and emitting 1.46 MeV {gamma}-ray. K is abundant in soil, construction materials, sand thus {gamma}-rays produced during {sup 40}K decay contribute to external dose. For K in the body practically all {sup 40}K decaying energy is absorbed by the body; thus {sup 40}K contributes to total dose in humans and it is important to evaluate its contribution. In this work a set of {sup 40}K sources were prepared using different amounts of KCl salt, a {gamma}-ray spectrometer with a NaI(Tl) was characterized to standardized the sources in order to evaluate the dose due to {sup 40}K. Using thermoluminescent dosemeters the dose due to {sup 40}K was measured and related to the amount of {sup 40}K {gamma}-ray activity. (Author)

    In this paper, we first introduce the notion of generalized k-syzygy modules, and then give an equivalent characterization that the class of generalized k-syzygy modules coincides with that ofω-k-torsionfree modules. We further study the extension closure of the category consisting of generalized k-syzygy modules. Some known results are obtained as corollaries.

By the method of Banach space theory, the some necessary and sufficient conditions of k- rough point of norm and k-rough norm of X are given respectively. We proved that (k + 1)- rough point is k- rough point and obtained some results related with k- rough point and Fr´echet differentiability. In particular, when k = 1 our results contains the results of about rough point of norm, pointwise rough norm and rough norm.

  10. The K-modes algorithm for clustering

    Carreira-Perpiñán, Miguel Á.; Wang, Weiran

    2013-01-01

    Many clustering algorithms exist that estimate a cluster centroid, such as K-means, K-medoids or mean-shift, but no algorithm seems to exist that clusters data by returning exactly K meaningful modes. We propose a natural definition of a K-modes objective function by combining the notions of density and cluster assignment. The algorithm becomes K-means and K-medoids in the limit of very large and very small scales. Computationally, it is slightly slower than K-means but much faster than mean-...

    In-medium subthreshold K-bar N scattering amplitudes calculated within a chirally motivated meson-baryon coupled-channel model are used self consistently to confront K{sup -} atom data across the periodic table. Substantially deeper K{sup -} nuclear potentials are obtained compared to the shallow potentials derived in some approaches from threshold K-bar N amplitudes, with ReV{sub K}{sup chiral}=-(85{+-}5) MeV at nuclear matter density. When K-bar NN contributions are incorporated phenomenologically, a very deep K{sup -} nuclear potential results, ReV{sub K}{sup chiral+phen.}=-(180{+-}5) MeV, in agreement with density dependent potentials obtained in purely phenomenological fits to the data. Self consistent dynamical calculations of K{sup -}-nuclear quasibound states generated by V{sub K}{sup chiral} are reported and discussed.

    A graph is K_{2,3}-saturated if it has no subgraph isomorphic to K_{2,3}, but does contain a K_{2,3} after the addition of any new edge. We prove that the minimum number of edges in a K_{2,3}-saturated graph on n >= 5 vertices is sat(n, K_{2,3}) = 2n - 3.

    Wilson, David J. [Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA

    2014-06-23

    We have obtained clear signals of resonances in coupled-channel pi K - eta K scattering. Using distillation and a large basis of operators we are able to extract a precise spectrum of energy levels using the variational method. These energies are analysed using inelastic extensions of the Luescher method to obtain scattering amplitudes that clearly describe S, P and D wave resonances, corresponding to the physical K_0^*(1430), the K^*(892) and the K_2^*(1430).

    K-means is an effective clustering technique used to separate similar data into groups based on initial centroids of clusters. In this paper, Normalization based K-means clustering algorithm(N-K means) is proposed. Proposed N-K means clustering algorithm applies normalization prior to clustering on the available data as well as the proposed approach calculates initial centroids based on weights. Experimental results prove the betterment of proposed N-K means clustering algorithm over existing...

    The role and importance of vitamin K as a cofactor in the ã-carboxylation of coagulation-proteins factor II, VII, IX and X is well-known. But, during the last 30 years, a number of observations have indicated a role for the vitamin also in other areas, for example in bone physiology. The first clue to this connection, was the description of the Fetal Warfarin Syndrome, where children are born with nasal hypoplasia, stippled epiphyses and distal extremity hypoplasia, due to the administration ...

    The Tokai to Kamioka (T2K) experiment uses a beam of muon neutrinos, produced at the J-PARC facility on the east coast of Japan, to study neutrino oscillations driven by the $\\Delta m_{\\textrm{atm}}^{2}$ mass splitting. A suite of near detectors located 280~m from the secondary beam source samples the unoscillated beam, and the Super-Kamiokande water Cherenkov detector samples the beam at a baseline of 295~km, and at a point $2.5^\\circ$ off the beam axis, giving a narrow-band beam centred around 600~MeV. Analyses of the oscillation channels $\

    1993-02-11

    In 1979, a K-edge densitometer (KED) was installed by the Safeguards Assay group from Los Alamos National Laboratory in the PNC reprocessing plant at Tokai-mura, Japan. It uses an active nondestructive assay technique, KED, to measure the plutonium concentration of the product solution. The measurement uncertainty of an assay depends on the count time chosen, but can be 0.5% or better. The computer hardware and software were upgraded in 1992. This manual describes the operation of the instrument, with an emphasis on the user interface to the software.

In this issue, we go behind the scenes to take a look at the production of the experiment's new kaon beam.   The start of the K12 beam line as seen during the installation of the shielding. 10-2, 10-3, 10-4, 10-5, 10-6 mbar… send in the protons! Since Thursday 1 November, the P42 beam line of the SPS has once again been sending protons to the beryllium target to produce the K12 kaon beam line eagerly awaited by the NA62 collaboration. This was no trivial matter! The first step was to clear the decks by dismantling the entire H10 beam line and NA60 experiment, as well as most of the NA48 experiment - representing some 1000 tonnes of equipment in total! Next came the complete renovation of the infrastructure, which dated back to 1979. The operation called on the expertise of virtually all branches of the EN and GS departments, as well as the Radiation Protection group: from ...

  1. On the structure of $End_{u_k(2)}(\\Omega_k^{\\otimes r})$

    Fu, Qiang; Yang, Qunguang

    2011-01-01

    Let $u_k(2)$ be the infinitesimal quantum $\\frak{gl}_2$ over $k$, where $k$ is a field containing an $l$th primitive root $\\epsilon$ of 1 with $l\\geq 3$ {\\it odd}. We will determine the basic algebra for ${u_k(2)}(\\Omega_k^{\\otimes r})$, where $\\Omega_k$ is the natural module for $u_k(2)$.

  2. Search for B^0 meson decays to \\pi^0 K^0_S K^0_S, \\eta K^0_S K^0_S, and \\eta^{\\prime}K^0_S K^0_S

    Aubert, B.

    2009-05-08

    We describe searches for B{sup 0} meson decays to the charmless final states {pi}{sup 0}K{sub S}{sup 0}K{sub S}{sup 0}, {eta}K{sub S}{sup 0}K{sub S}{sup 0}, and {eta}{prime}K{sub S}{sup 0}K{sub S}{sup 0}. The data sample corresponds to 467 x 10{sup 6} B{bar B} pairs produced in e{sup +}e{sup -} annihilation and collected with the BABAR detector at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. We find no significant signals and determine the 90% confidence level upper limits on the branching fractions, in units of 10{sup -7}, {Beta}(B{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup 0}K{sub S}{sup 0}K{sub S}{sup 0}) < 12, {Beta}(B{sup 0} {yields} {eta}K{sub S}{sup 0}K{sub S}{sup 0}) < 10, and {Beta}(B{sup 0} {yields} {eta}{prime}K{sub S}{sup 0}K{sub S}{sup 0}) < 20.

  3. Degree sequences of k-multi-hypertournaments

    Pirzada S

    2009-01-01

    Let n and k (n ≥ k > 1) be two non-negative integers. A k-multi-hypertournament on n vertices is a pair (V, A), where V is a set of vertices with |V|= n, and A is a set of k-tuples of vertices, called arcs, such that for any k-subset S of V, A contains at least one (at most k!) of the k! k-tuples whose entries belong to S. The necessary and sufficient conditions for a non-decreasing sequence of non-negative integers to be the out-degree sequence (in-degree sequence) of some k-multi-hypertournament are given.

  4. The aligned K-center problem

    Braß, Peter

    2011-04-01

    In this paper we study several instances of the aligned k-center problem where the goal is, given a set of points S in the plane and a parameter k ≥ 1, to find k disks with centers on a line ℓ such that their union covers S and the maximum radius of the disks is minimized. This problem is a constrained version of the well-known k-center problem in which the centers are constrained to lie in a particular region such as a segment, a line, or a polygon. We first consider the simplest version of the problem where the line ℓ is given in advance; we can solve this problem in time O(n log2 n). In the case where only the direction of ℓ is fixed, we give an O(n2 log 2 n)-time algorithm. When ℓ is an arbitrary line, we give a randomized algorithm with expected running time O(n4 log2 n). Then we present (1+ε)-approximation algorithms for these three problems. When we denote T(k, ε) = (k/ε2+(k/ε) log k) log(1/ε), these algorithms run in O(n log k + T(k, ε)) time, O(n log k + T(k, ε)/ε) time, and O(n log k + T(k, ε)/ε2) time, respectively. For k = O(n1/3/log n), we also give randomized algorithms with expected running times O(n + (k/ε2) log(1/ε)), O(n+(k/ε3) log(1/ε)), and O(n + (k/ε4) log(1/ε)), respectively. © 2011 World Scientific Publishing Company.

  6. Compact K-edge densitometer

    Los Alamos National Laboratory has designed, built, and is currently testing a compact K-edge densitometer for use by International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors. The unit, which can easily be moved from one location to another within a facility, is positioned outside a glovebox with the body of the instrument inserted into the glove. A fixture inside the glovebox fits around the body and positions a sample holder. A hand-held high-purity germanium detector powered by a battery pack and a Davidson portable multichannel analyzer (MCA) is used to measure the transmission through plutonium nitrate solutions at E/sub Y/ = 121.1 and 122.2 keV. The Davidson MCA is programmed to lead the user through the measurement procedure and perform all the data analyses. The instrument is currently installed at the Safeguards Analytical Laboratory, where IAEA personnel are evaluating its accuracy, ease of operation, and safety. 5 references, 5 figures, 5 tables

  7. Vertices of degree k in edge-minimal, k-edge-connected graphs

    Kingsford, Carl; Marçais, Guillaume

    2009-01-01

    Halin showed that every edge minimal, k-vertex connected graph has a vertex of degree k. In this note, we prove the analogue to Halin's theorem for edge-minimal, k-edge-connected graphs. We show there are two vertices of degree k in every edge-minimal, k-edge-connected graph.

  8. Search for the decay of a B0 or B0bar meson to K*0bar K0 or K*0 K0bar

    Aubert, B.

    2006-06-27

    The authors present a search for the decay of a B{sup 0} or {bar B}{sup 0} meson to a {bar K}*{sup 0} K{sup 0} or K*{sup 0} {bar K}{sup 0} final state, using a sample of approximately 232 million B{bar B} events collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric energy e{sup +}e{sup -} collider at SLAC. The measured branching fraction is {Beta}(B{sup 0} {yields} {bar K}*{sup 0} K{sup 0}) + {Beta}(B{sup 0} {yields} K*{sup 0} {bar K}{sup 0}) = (0.2{sub -0.8, -0.3}{sup +0.9, +0.1}) x 10{sup -6}. They obtain the following upper limit for the branching fraction at 90% confidence level: {Beta}(B{sup 0} {yields} {bar K}*{sup 0} K{sup 0}) + {Beta}(B{sup 0} {yields} K*{sup 0} {bar K}{sup 0}) < 1.9 x 10{sup -6}. They use our result to constrain the Standard Model prediction for the deviation of the CP asymmetry in B{sup 0} {yields} {phi}K{sup 0} from sin 2{beta}.

  12. On k-Path Pancyclic Graphs

    Bi Zhenming

    2015-05-01

    Full Text Available For integers k and n with 2 ≤ k ≤ n − 1, a graph G of order n is k-path pancyclic if every path P of order k in G lies on a cycle of every length from k + 1 to n. Thus a 2-path pancyclic graph is edge-pancyclic. In this paper, we present sufficient conditions for graphs to be k-path pancyclic. For a graph G of order n ≥ 3, we establish sharp lower bounds in terms of n and k for (a the minimum degree of G, (b the minimum degree-sum of nonadjacent vertices of G and (c the size of G such that G is k-path pancyclic

  15. [K fertility and K deficit index of aquic brown soil under different fertilization systems].

    Yu, Wan-Tai; Jiang, Zi-Shao; Shen, Shan-Min; Zhang, Lu

    2007-10-01

    A 15-year fertilization experiment was conducted on an aquic brown soil to study the variations of its K fertility and the index of K deficit under different fertilization systems. The results indicated that no K application accelerated the depletion of soil K, representing a certain decrease of soil available and slow-release K. Applying K alone could not keep soil K in balance, still having a decrease of soil available and slow-release K. The application of recycled compost combined with appropriate amount of fertilizer K could compensate soil K expenditure to a certain degree, and keep the concentrations of soil available and slow-release K somewhat constant. The statistic analysis on the past years test results showed that the critical values of soil available K in corn- and soybean fields obtained by crossing method were all 73 mg x kg(-1).

    We consider a connection between the holographic dark energy density and the kinetic k-essence energy density in a flat FRW universe. With the choice c{>=}1, the holographic dark energy can be described by a kinetic k-essence scalar field in a certain way. In this Letter we show this kinetic k-essential description of the holographic dark energy with c{>=}1 and reconstruct the kinetic k-essence function F(X)

  1. Space Mission : Y3K

    2001-01-01

    ESA and the APME are hosting a contest for 10 - 15 year olds in nine European countries (Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom). The contest is based on an interactive CD ROM, called Space Mission: Y3K, which explores space technology and shows some concrete uses of that technology in enhancing the quality of life on Earth. The CD ROM invites kids to join animated character Space Ranger Pete on an action-packed, colourful journey through space. Space Ranger Pete begins on Earth: the user navigates around a 'locker room' to learn about synthetic materials used in rocket boosters, heat shields, space suits and helmets, and how these materials have now become indispensable to everyday life. From Earth he flies into space and the user follows him from the control room in the spacecraft to a planet, satellites and finally to the International Space Station. Along the way, the user jots down clues that he or she discovers in this exploration, designing an imaginary space community and putting together a submission for the contest. The lucky winners will spend a weekend training as "junior astronauts" at the European Space Centre in Belgium (20-22 April 2001). They will be put through their astronaut paces, learning the art of space walking, running their own space mission, piloting a space capsule and re-entering the Earth's atmosphere. The competition features in various youth media channels across Europe. In the UK, popular BBC Saturday morning TV show, Live & Kicking, will be launching the competition and will invite viewers to submit their space community designs to win a weekend at ESC. In Germany, high circulation children's magazine Geolino will feature the competition in the January issue and on their internet site. And youth magazine ZoZitDat will feature the competition in the Netherlands throughout February. Space Mission: Y3K is part of an on-going partnership between the ESA's Technology Transfer

  16. K West Basin canister survey

    A survey was conducted of the K West Basin to determine the distribution of canister types that contain the irradiated N Reactor fuel. An underwater camera was used to conduct the survey during June 1998, and the results were recorded on videotape. A full row-by-row survey of the entire basin was performed, with the distinction between aluminum and stainless steel Mark 1 canisters made by the presence or absence of steel rings on the canister trunions (aluminum canisters have the steel rings). The results of the survey are presented in tables and figures. Grid maps of the three bays show the canister lid ID number and the canister type in each location that contained fuel. The following abbreviations are used in the grid maps for canister type designation: IA = Mark 1 aluminum, IS = Mark 1 stainless steel, and 2 = Mark 2 stainless steel. An overall summary of the canister distribution survey is presented in Table 1. The total number of canisters found to contain fuel was 3842, with 20% being Mark 1 Al, 25% being Mark 1 SS, and 55% being Mark 2 SS. The aluminum canisters were predominantly located in the East and West bays of the basin

  17. Hybrid k -Nearest Neighbor Classifier.

    Yu, Zhiwen; Chen, Hantao; Liuxs, Jiming; You, Jane; Leung, Hareton; Han, Guoqiang

    2016-06-01

    Conventional k -nearest neighbor (KNN) classification approaches have several limitations when dealing with some problems caused by the special datasets, such as the sparse problem, the imbalance problem, and the noise problem. In this paper, we first perform a brief survey on the recent progress of the KNN classification approaches. Then, the hybrid KNN (HBKNN) classification approach, which takes into account the local and global information of the query sample, is designed to address the problems raised from the special datasets. In the following, the random subspace ensemble framework based on HBKNN (RS-HBKNN) classifier is proposed to perform classification on the datasets with noisy attributes in the high-dimensional space. Finally, the nonparametric tests are proposed to be adopted to compare the proposed method with other classification approaches over multiple datasets. The experiments on the real-world datasets from the Knowledge Extraction based on Evolutionary Learning dataset repository demonstrate that RS-HBKNN works well on real datasets, and outperforms most of the state-of-the-art classification approaches.

  18. K-theory an introduction

    Karoubi, Max

    1978-01-01

    AT-theory was introduced by A. Grothendieck in his formulation of the Riemann- Roch theorem (cf. Borel and Serre [2]). For each projective algebraic variety, Grothendieck constructed a group from the category of coherent algebraic sheaves, and showed that it had many nice properties. Atiyah and Hirzebruch [3] con­ sidered a topological analog defined for any compact space X, a group K{X) constructed from the category of vector bundles on X. It is this ''topological J^-theory" that this book will study. Topological ^-theory has become an important tool in topology. Using- theory, Adams and Atiyah were able to give a simple proof that the only spheres which can be provided with //-space structures are S^, S^ and S'^. Moreover, it is possible to derive a substantial part of stable homotopy theory from A^-theory (cf. J. F. Adams [2]). Further applications to analysis and algebra are found in the work of Atiyah-Singer [2], Bass [1], Quillen [1], and others. A key factor in these applications is Bott periodicity (...

    1999-01-01

    An algorithm for solving thesatisfiability problem is presented. It is proved that this algorithmsolves 2-SAT and Horn-SAT in linear time and k-positive SAT(in which every clause contains at most k positive literals) in time, where |F| is the length of input F,n is the number of atoms occurring in F, and ξk is thegreatest real number satisfying the equation . Compared with previous results, this nontrivialupper bound on time complexity could only be obtained for k-SAT, whichis a subproblem of k-positive SAT.

    We present preliminary measurements of the CP asymmetry parameters and CP content in B0 --> K+K-K0L decays, with B0 --> phi K0L events excluded. In a sample of 227 M B bar B pairs collected by the BaBar detector at the PEP-II B Factory at SLAC, we find the CP parameters to be S = 0.07 +/- 0.28 (stat) {+0.11} {-0.12} (syst) C = 0.54 +/- 0.22 (stat) {+0.08} {-0.09} (syst) where the first error is statistical and the second is systematic. Estimating the fraction of CP-odd final states from angular moments analysis in the K+K-K0S CP-conjugate final state, f_{odd} (K+K-K0L) = 0.92 +/- 0.07 (stat) +/- 0.06 (syst) we determine sin 2beta_{eff} = 0.09 +/- 0.33, (stat) {+0.13} {-0.14} (syst) +/- 0.10 (syst CP-cont)

  3. The T2K TPCs

    The Tokai-to-Kamiokande (T2K) experiment is a second generation long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment which will start taking data at the end of 2009. A high intensity muon neutrino beam produced at the new JPARC proton accelerator complex at Tokai, Japan is aimed at the Super-Kamiokande detector which is 295 km away. The goals of the experiment include the precision measurement of the muon neutrino disappearance parameters θ23 and Delta m232 and the determination of θ13 by the measurement of the muon neutrino to electron neutrino appearance signal. A near detector complex (ND280) located 280 m from the target will be used to measure the neutrino energy spectrum, flavour content and interaction rates of the unoscillated beam. The tracking part of ND280 consists of two finely segmented scintillator modules (FGDs) and three large gaseous Time Projection Chambers (TPCs) operated within a 0.2 T magnetic field provided by the ex UA1/Nomad magnet. The TPCs are designed to measure the charge, the momentum, and the identity of charged particles through ionization loss in the gas. 72 micromegas modules, with an equivalent surface of 9 m2 will equip the three TPCs. The first TPC has already been constructed and tested with a particle beam and cosmic ray muons. The TPCs will be installed at JPARC in 2009. The design and construction aspects, the present construction status and results from a beam test operated at TRIUMF with the first fully equipped TPC will be presented. (author)

  4. Analysis of the differential cross sections for the reaction pp→ppK+K- in view of the K+K- interaction

    Measurements of the pp→ppK+K- reaction, performed with the experiment COSY-11 at the Cooler Synchrotron COSY, show a significant difference between the obtained excitation function and theoretical expectations including pp-FSI. The discrepancy may be assigned to the influence of K+K- or K-p interaction. This interaction should manifest itself in the distributions of the differential cross section. This thesis presents an analysis of event distributions as a function of the invariant masses of two particle subsystems. In particular in the analysis two generalizations of the Dalitz plot proposed by Goldhaber and Nyborg are used. The present Investigations are based on the experimental data determined by the COSY-11 collaboration from two measurements at excess energies of Q=10 MeV and 28 MeV. The experimental distributions are compared to results of Monte Carlo simulations generated with various parameters of the K+K- and K-p interaction. The values of the K+K- scattering length, extracted from two data sets for Q=10 MeV and 28 MeV amount to: aK+K-=(11±8)+i(0±6) fm for Q=10 MeV, and aK+K-=(0.2±0.2)+i(0.0±0.5) fm for Q=28 MeV. Due to the low statistics, the extracted values have large uncertainties and are consistent with very low values of the real and imaginary part of the scattering length. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Vážení čtenáři Envigogiky, jak máme ve zvyku, představujeme nové právě vycházející číslo (2013/VIII/3 v souvislostech širších, dosvědčujících směr našeho společného usilování. V tomto podzimním čase se dotkneme často diskutovaného problému elit a jejich postavení v současné společnosti výkonu, a pravidelně opakovaných námitek, že současná společnost elity jakoby nepotřebuje, a ani nevytváří[1]. Intelektuální elitou je vždy míněna vrstva lidí s rozhledem, sečtělých, schopných uvažovat v souvislostech; to vše jsou schopnosti vznikající ve svobodě – nejen smýšlení, tedy názoru a jeho vyjádření, ale především myšlení samého. Tato svoboda potřebuje otevření časového prostoru, kdy myšlení je samo sebou – může volně plynout, aniž by naráželo na své, či spíše vnější „produktivní“ nároky. Čas pro čtení, rozvažování či dokonce rozjímání chybí stále více, což je spojeno s nedůvěrou, že by takové počínání mohlo vůbec „k něčemu vést“. Také environmentální vzdělání vede v tomto ohledu bitvu předem ztracenou – pokouší se vyvzdorovat tento volný čas v systému požírajícímu naše děti již v útlém věku, a obhájit jej proti soustavnému nároku na vytváření nových znalostí. Jenomže co to je znalost: správně zodpovězená položka v dotazníku, výsledek testu? Souvisí v naší „znalostní společnosti“ opravdu přímo s (osobním úspěchem? Skutečné poznání je třeba nejen nabýt, ale také pro sebe strávit, vystavit zkoušce při střetu se skutečností, obhájit v diskusi… To vše postupně zdegenerovalo v pouhou schopnost použít je pro tvorbu požadovaného produktu, ať jím je publikovaný text, prezentace, nebo jen ukončená vzdělávací jednotka vykazatelná v CV.

    We present measurements of Collins asymmetries in the inclusive process e+e- →h1h2X , h1h2=K K , K π , π π , at the center-of-mass energy of 10.6 GeV, using a data sample of 468 fb-1 collected by the BABAR experiment at the PEP-II B factory at SLAC National Accelerator Center. Considering hadrons in opposite thrust hemispheres of hadronic events, we observe clear azimuthal asymmetries in the ratio of unlike sign to like sign, and unlike sign to all charged h1h2 pairs, which increase with hadron energies. The K π asymmetries are similar to those measured for the π π pairs, whereas those measured for high-energy K K pairs are, in general, larger.

    A search is made for the highly-suppressed B meson decays $B^{+}\\rightarrow K^{+}K^{+}\\pi^{-}$ and $B^{+}\\rightarrow \\pi^{+}\\pi^{+}K^{-}$ using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 $fb^{-1}$ collected by the LHCb experiment in proton-proton collisions at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. No evidence is found for the decays, and upper limits at 90\\% confidence level are determined to be $\\mathcal{B}(B^{+}\\rightarrow K^{+}K^{+}\\pi^{-}) < 1.1\\times 10^{-8}$ and $\\mathcal{B}(B^{+}\\rightarrow \\pi^{+}\\pi^{+}K^{-}) < 4.6\\times 10^{-8}$.

    2009-01-01

    The k-t broad-use linear acquisition speed-up technique (BLAST) has become widespread for reducing image acquisition time in dynamic MRI. In its basic form k-t BLAST speeds up the data acquisition by undersampling k-space over time (referred to as k-t space). The resulting aliasing is resolved in...
