  1. Existence of Green's functions in perturbative Q.E.D

    Seneor, R.


    A report is made on some work done in collaboration with P. Blanchard which shows how, in the framework developped by H.Epstein and V.Glaser, one can prove the existence of Green's functions in quantum electrodynamics (Q.E.D.). The proof can be extended, in principle, to any theory involving massive and non massive particles. (Auth.)

  2. Does E.D.F. export at a loss

    Laramee, V.


    As European Energy markets should progressively open themselves to the free competition, Electricite de France (E.D.F.) is suspected by an energy research institute to sell abroad its kilowatts at a price inferior to the production cost. The situation and the different parameters to calculate the production cost are explained here. (N.C.)

  6. Particle identification by means of fine sampling dE/dX measurements

    Imanishi, A; Ishii, T; Ohshima, T; Okuno, H; Shiino, K [Tokyo Univ., Tanashi (Japan). Inst. for Nuclear Study; Naito, F [Tokyo Univ. of Agriculture and Technology, Koganei (Japan). Faculty of Technology; Matsuda, T [Osaka Univ., Toyonaka (Japan). Faculty of Engineering Science


    Identification of relativistic charged particles by means of fine sampling d E/d X measurements with a longitudinal drift chamber has been studied. Using a fast-sampling ADC (25 MHz), dE/dX was measured in a 1.4 mm gas thickness over an electron drift space of 51 mm. For the simulated 1 m long tracks of pions and electrons of 500 MeV/c, a particle separation of 10sigma - 12sigma has been obtained, where sigma is the r.m.s. resolution of the dE/dX measurement. This result with fine sampling is better by a factor of 1.7 compared to the dE/dX measurement, with 21 mm sampling thickness. Further improvement achievable by reducing the correlation between neighbouring samples and simplification of electronics by use of the delta-ray clipping method are also discussed.

  7. Exploration of extremely low q_e_d_g_e regime in KSTAR

    Kim, Jayhyun; In, Y.; Park, B.H.; Aydemir, A.


    The q_e_d_g_e < 2 regime had long been regarded as an experimentally forbidden regime due to magneto-hydrodynamic instabilities. However, RFX-MOD experiment demonstrated that the control of error field could enable the entrance and sustainment of the discharge even in the forbidden regime. We explored q_e_d_g_e < 2 regime in Korea superconducting tokamak advanced research (KSTAR) without any feedback or feedforward control of error field since the intrinsic level of error field in KSTAR is inherently comparable to the controlled level of other device. The discharge sustained at q_9_5 ∼ 1.9 for 800 ms that is at least one order of magnitude longer than the resistive wall time of the device. Furthermore, simulated error field applied by field error correction coils prevented the passage of q_e_d_g_e = 3 integer rational surface before reaching q_e_d_g_e = 2. The detailed analysis is on-going for revealing the role of error field in the excitation of limiting instability. (author)

  13. Direct measurement of α_Q_E_D(m_Z"2) at the FCC-ee

    Janot, Patrick


    When the measurements from the FCC-ee become available, an improved determination of the standard-model “input' parameters will be needed to fully exploit the new precision data towards either constraining or fitting the parameters of beyond-the-standard-model theories. Among these input parameters is the electromagnetic coupling constant estimated at the Z mass scale, α_Q_E_D(m_Z"2). The measurement of the muon forward-backward asymmetry at the FCC-ee, just below and just above the Z pole, can be used to make a direct determination of α_Q_E_D(m_Z"2) with an accuracy deemed adequate for an optimal use of the FCC-ee precision data.

    Experiments on electron scattering from polarized deuterons were carried out on the VEPP-3 storage ring at the Novosibirsk Institute for Nuclear Physics. The e-D coincidences were detected for elastic scattering experiments, and the p-n coincidences for photo disintegration studies. The tensor analyzing power of the elastic scattering was measured in the range of momentum transfer up to 3 f -1 , and of photo disintegration in the range of photon energy up to 500 MeV. The detector system created for these experiments and the data analysis procedures are described in this paper. (orig.)

  16. Application of the probabilistic method at the E.D.F

    Gachot, Bernard


    Having first evoked the problems arising from the definition of a so-called 'acceptable risk', the probabilistic study programme on safety carried out at the E.D.F. is described. The different aspects of the probabilistic estimation of a hazard are presented as well as the different steps i.e. collecting the information, carrying out a quantitative and qualitative analysis, which characterize the probabilistic study of safety problems. The problem of data determination is considered on reliability of the equipment, noting as a conclusion, that in spite of the lack of accuracy of the present data, the probabilistic methods already appear as a highly valuable tool favouring an homogenous and coherent approach of nuclear plant safety [fr

  1. P-odd effects in the e-d scattering in the vector-like theories

    Gakh, G.I.


    P-odd effects in elastic electron-deuteron scattering, due to the weak neutral currents, are analyzed in the framework of the vector-like theories. Considered is the case of the most general form of the P-invariance breaking in the elastic e - d scattering amplitude in both the leptonic and hadronic vertices. It is found that in the vector-like theories the parity violation in the electro-deuteron elastic scattering is confined in the hadronic vertex, while in the Weinberg-Salam model it is confined in the leptonic vertex. In the vector-like theories the asymmetry in the scattering of longitudinally polarized electrons by nonpolarized deuterons depends on the electromagnetic and weak form factors of a deuteron, whereas in the Weinberg-Salam model it does not depend on the structure of the deuteron. In the Weinberg-Salam model the asymmetry is independent on the T-violating form factors of the deuteron, whereas such a dependence is present in the vector-like theories

  2. The R.E.D. tools: advances in RESP and ESP charge derivation and force field library building.

    Dupradeau, François-Yves; Pigache, Adrien; Zaffran, Thomas; Savineau, Corentin; Lelong, Rodolphe; Grivel, Nicolas; Lelong, Dimitri; Rosanski, Wilfried; Cieplak, Piotr


    Deriving atomic charges and building a force field library for a new molecule are key steps when developing a force field required for conducting structural and energy-based analysis using molecular mechanics. Derivation of popular RESP charges for a set of residues is a complex and error prone procedure because it depends on numerous input parameters. To overcome these problems, the R.E.D. Tools (RESP and ESP charge Derive, ) have been developed to perform charge derivation in an automatic and straightforward way. The R.E.D. program handles chemical elements up to bromine in the periodic table. It interfaces different quantum mechanical programs employed for geometry optimization and computing molecular electrostatic potential(s), and performs charge fitting using the RESP program. By defining tight optimization criteria and by controlling the molecular orientation of each optimized geometry, charge values are reproduced at any computer platform with an accuracy of 0.0001 e. The charges can be fitted using multiple conformations, making them suitable for molecular dynamics simulations. R.E.D. allows also for defining charge constraints during multiple molecule charge fitting, which are used to derive charges for molecular fragments. Finally, R.E.D. incorporates charges into a force field library, readily usable in molecular dynamics computer packages. For complex cases, such as a set of homologous molecules belonging to a common family, an entire force field topology database is generated. Currently, the atomic charges and force field libraries have been developed for more than fifty model systems and stored in the RESP ESP charge DDataBase. Selected results related to non-polarizable charge models are presented and discussed.

  3. Deuteron form factors and e-d polarization observables for the Paris and Graz-II potentials

    Schwarz, K.; Plessas, W.; Mathelitsch, L.


    Elastic e-d scattering is studied employing the meson-theoretical Paris potential and the non-local separable Graz-II potential. Electric and magnetic form factors are calculated with inclusion of meson-exchange currents and compared to existing experimental data. Deuteron vector and tensor polarizations are predicted and discussed in relation to the deuteron wave functions of the potential models considered. Thereby the off-shell behaviour of the Graz-II interaction is found to be close to that one of the Paris potential over the most important domain of low and moderate off-shell moments. (Author)

    We present a precise measurement of double-polarization asymmetries in the He3→(e → ,e'd ) reaction. This particular process is a uniquely sensitive probe of hadron dynamics in 3He and the structure of the underlying electromagnetic currents. The measurements have been performed in and around quasielastic kinematics at Q2=0.25 (GeV /c )2 for missing momenta up to 270 MeV /c . The asymmetries are in fair agreement with the state-of-the-art calculations in terms of their functional dependencies on pm and ω , but are systematically offset. Beyond the region of the quasielastic peak, the discrepancies become even more pronounced. Thus, our measurements have been able to reveal deficiencies in the most sophisticated calculations of the three-body nuclear system, and indicate that further refinement in the treatment of their two-and/or three-body dynamics is required.

  10. Filosofia e neurociência: entre certezas e dúvidas Philosophy and neuroscience: between certainties and doubts

    Ana Cristina Zimmermann


    Full Text Available Quando tentamos pensar o movimento humano, esse corpo vivo em relação com o mundo, por meio de conceitos restritos a uma única área, constata-se a complexidade deste fenômeno, que se mostra a cada novo movimento da ciência. Considerando esta complexidade, retomamos neste ensaio a possibilidade de diálogo entre Filosofia e Ciência, aqui ocupadas com os estudos sobre corpo e movimento humano. Recorremos, então, ao estranhamento entre Neurociência e Filosofia, em especial a Fenomenologia de Merleau-Ponty, por meio de exemplos clínicos e reflexões, não no sentido de buscar um sistema de explicações, forçar uma aproximação ou apontar elementos para fins de hierarquização, mas com o intuito de extrair deste movimento os elementos que nos ajudem a pensar nossas certezas e dúvidas acerca do movimento humano. A Filosofia nos auxilia, inicialmente, a indagar sobre os pressupostos e consequências das pesquisas, recolocando questões e restaurando o lugar da dúvida. A Ciência, por sua vez, abre campos, aguça curiosidades, e mesmo sem admiti-lo, deixa-se questionar. A separação entre as diferentes formas de pensar a realidade e produzir conhecimentos não precisa necessariamente ser combatida, às custas do enfraquecimento de ambas, mas é possível extrair consequências interessantes de um movimento de aproximação entre as duas áreas.When considering the human movement from a restricted point of view (i.e. from only one field of study, its complexity is evident at each new step in Science.

We invoke the strangeness between Neuroscience and Philosophy, especially the phenomenology of Merleau-Ponty with clinical examples and reflexions.

  13. Usage of shape of signal from liquid ionization chamber for rejection delta electrons and multiple measurement of dE/d x

    Kulinich, P.A.


    The results of numerical simulation of separation of different kinds of charged particles with β 2 cm) ionization liquid medium chamber is proposed to be used for rejection of energetic delta electrons and for few measurements of dE/d x inside one gap. Possibility of separating π- and k-mesons at the level of 2 σ in a 4 cm L Kr medium chamber in the momentum range (0.5 N - 0.8) GeV/c is shown. 15 refs.; 13 figs.; 3 tabs. (author)

    The author presents a survey of experimental and theoretical results for the ground-state properties of 3 He. The formalism of the (e,e'p) and (e,e'd) reactions is presented. A short description of the instrumentation, in particular those elements which are typical for the present study, and of the data analysis is given. This includes a description of the elements required in the 'recoil detection' technique. The kinematics of the experiments and the results are presented. The results are discussed and compared with calculations. (Auth.)

  15. Experimental Study of Particle Separation in a L Kr Ionization Chamber by Multiple Measuring of dE/d x Using the Shape Analysis of Signal

    Cantoni, P.; Frabetti, P.L.; Stagni, L.


    Charged particle (π - k) separation in the momentum range 0.5 - 0.7 GeV/c using a new method of shape analysis of the signal from a liquid krypton (L Kr) ionization chamber has been experimentally studied. The detector has been exposed to pions and protons at T11 test beam at the CERN PS. The shape of the preamplifier output signal was recorded by a waveform digitizer, then it was doubly 'differentiated' to obtain few measurements of dE/d x inside a 2 cm gap. This permits an increase of the boundary momentum of 2 σ separation from 0.6 GeV/c to 0.68 GeV/c. The comparison with the Monte Carlo result shows good agreement. (author). 11 refs.; 9 figs

  16. Running-in strategies for the low-enriched 600 MW(e) D-HHT reactor. Part 1. Comparison of different on-load refuelling schemes

    Hansen, U


    This paper presents detailed burn-up calculations and fuel management strategies for the Dragon-HHT, D-HHT, reference core. The reference layout was chosen from the outcome of a design survey with the 1-D equilibrium fuel cycle code FLATTER. The decision was based on aspects of engineering and economics. The purpose of the investigation is to devise a suitable first core, follow the irradiation history of the fuel and the general behaviour of the reactor during the first core replacements until equilibrium operating conditions are reached. A detailed description of time dependant burn-up and spatial power production for specified reactivity limits is required. For this purpose the reactor code system VSOP was employed. Different combinations of the parameters are investigated and the influence on reactor operation and economics discussed. From the strategy analysis a reference fuel management scheme is chosen for the low enriched 600 MW(e) D-HHT reactor.

  17. Annealing, temperature, and bias-induced threshold voltage instabilities in integrated E/D-mode InAlN/GaN MOS HEMTs

    Blaho, M.; Gregušová, D.; Haščík, Š.; Ťapajna, M.; Fröhlich, K.; Šatka, A.; Kuzmík, J.


    Threshold voltage instabilities are examined in self-aligned E/D-mode n++ GaN/InAlN/GaN MOS HEMTs with a gate length of 2 μm and a source-drain spacing of 10 μm integrated in a logic invertor. The E-mode MOS HEMT technology is based on selective dry etching of the cap layer which is combined with Al2O3 grown by atomic-layer deposition at 380 K. In the D-mode MOS HEMT, the gate recessing is skipped. The nominal threshold voltage (VT) of E/D-mode MOS HEMTs was 0.6 and -3.4 V, respectively; the technology invariant maximal drain current was about 0.45 A/mm. Analysis after 580 K/15 min annealing step and at an elevated temperature up to 430 K reveals opposite device behavior depending on the HEMT operational mode. It was found that the annealing step decreases VT of the D-mode HEMT due to a reduced electron injection into the modified oxide. On the other hand, VT of the E-mode HEMT increases with reduced density of surface donors at the oxide/InAlN interface. Operation at the elevated temperature produces reversible changes: increase/decrease in the VT of the respective D-/E-mode HEMTs. Additional bias-induced experiments exhibit complex trapping phenomena in the devices: Coaction of shallow (˜0.1 eV below EC) traps in the GaN buffer and deep levels at the oxide/InAlN interface was identified for the E-mode device, while trapping in the D-mode HEMTs was found to be consistent with a thermo-ionic injection of electrons into bulk oxide traps (˜0.14 eV above EF) and trapping at the oxide/GaN cap interface states.

    Boussard, R; Conte, F [Commissariat a l' Energie Atomique, Fontenay-aux-Roses (France). Centre d' Etudes Nucleaires; Stolz, J M [Electricite de France (EDF), 75 - Paris (France)


    After resuming briefly the characteristics of the installations G2-G3 at Marcoule and EDF 1 at Chinon, the authors review the main aspects of the tests, the starting and the exploitation of these reactors. Among the various points examined, particular emphasis is given to the devices of original nature such as tubular fuel elements, flattening of the neutron flux by stuffing, behaviour of the reactor tanks and the cooling circuits, the blowers, unloading devices, regulation and functioning of the informations. This analysis deals equally with the performances obtained and the difficulties and the various incidents experienced during the initial starting period. Among the more interesting results, the progressive increase in the power of the Marcoule reactors is mentioned, obtained through a better knowledge of the parameters covering the functioning of the reactors such as the distribution of the flux and the temperatures etc... acquired during the course of the exploitation of the reactor. The conclusion reached by the authors is that the experience gained on these installations has shown: - that during an initial period, adjustments became necessary, all of which turned out to be possible, - that an analysis of their functioning has permitted the progressive movement towards a truly industrial exploitation. (authors) [French] Les auteurs, apres un bref rappel des caracteristiques des installations G2 - G3 de MARCOULE et E.D.F. 1 de CHINON, passent en revue les principaux aspects des essais, de la mise en service et de l'exploitation de ces centrales.

  6. Superávit e déficit fiscal dos municípios brasileiros: uma aplicação do modelo de viés de seleção em painel

    Sergio Naruhiko Sakurai


    Full Text Available O objetivo deste artigo é analisar o resultado primário fiscal dos municípios brasileiros entre 1999 e 2007, aplicando a metodologia de viés de seleção para dados em painel proposto por Wooldridge (1995. Mais especificamente, assume-se que a ocorrência de superávits e déficits fiscais não deve ser tomada como um evento puramente aleatório e, alternativamente, assume-se a existência de um primeiro estágio que determina a ocorrência de um superávit ou de um déficit fiscal. Os resultados corrigidos para a presença do viés amostral indicam que saldos fiscais positivos e negativos são parcialmente influenciados pelas características fiscais dos municípios, bem como pela estrutura demográfica da população. Contudo, suas características políticas pouco influenciam o resultado fiscal.

    Fátima Q. Alves


    Full Text Available A biologia reprodutiva de Dipsas neivai Amaral, 1923 e Dipsas catesbyi (Sentezen, 1796 foi estudada através da dissecção de 261 espécimes de D. neivai e 222 de D. catesbyi. Em D. neivai o macho amadurece com menor tamanho do que a fêmea, ocorrendo o oposto em D. catesbyi. Em ambas as espécies a fêmea atinge maior tamanho corporal que o macho. O tamanho da ninhada variou de um a oito ovos em D. neivai e de um a seis em D. catesbyi, não estando correlacionado com o tamanho da fêmea na última. O ciclo reprodutivo em ambos machos e fêmeas é contínuo, com vitelogênese e espermatogênese ocorrendo ao longo do ano todo. Em Dipsas neivai, a cópula nas fêmeas é dissociado da vitelogênese. D. neivai e D. catesbyi são sintópicas, e reproduzem no mesmo período do ano, o que possivelmente está relacionado à disponibilidade contínua de presas e à pouca variação climática no sudeste da Bahia.The reproductive biology of Dipsas neivai Amaral, 1923 and Dipsas catesbyi (Sentzen, 1796, was studied by dissecting 261 specimens of D. neivai and 222 of D. catesbyi. In D. neivai males mature at smaller body size than females, and in D. catesbyi the opposite was observed. The females were larger than males in both species. The clutch size ranged from one to eight in D. neivai, and one to six in D. catesbyi, but it is not correlated with female length in the last one. Reproductive cycles in both males and females are aseasonal, with vitelogensis and spermatogenesis occurring throughout the year. The couple in females of D. neivai is dissociated from the vitellogenesis. D. neivai and D. catesbyi are syntopic and reproduce in the same time of the year, which is possibly related to the continuous availability of prey and little climate variation in southern Bahia.

Wear down was very important, with high frequency of tertiary dentine and exposition of the pulp cavity/radicular canal, due to the association of fractures and wear down. Fractures predispose wear down which, on the other side, favors fractures. The degree of attrition increased with age. The order of growing frequency of tertiary dentin in poscanines was: first, second and third molars, third and second premolars, and finally fourth molar. Differently from others omnivorous in Didelphis tooth wear down seems rather related to fractures due to food (followed by attrition than to teeth contact. Contrary to literature, tribosphenic molars seems not to be "ideals" for such omnivorous diet, as is evident from the high frequency of wear down

    Leticia Correa Celeste


    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: examinar o papel da organização temporal do discurso na expressão das atitudes de certeza e dúvida em grupo de adultos com gagueira, comparando-a em um grupo de adultos fluentes. MÉTODO: participaram desta pesquisa 24 indivíduos, sendo 12 com gagueira (GE1 e GE2 e 12 sem gagueira (GC. Foram coletadas amostras que teve como base um corpus de 10 frases chave que foram produzidas nas formas neutra, de dúvida e de certeza, totalizando 840 enunciados. A análise acústica foi realizada por meio do programa Praat e os seguintes parâmetros foram analisados: tempos e taxas de elocução e articulação, ocorrência e duração de pausas e disfluências, duração das vogais tônica e pré-tônica e ocorrência da vogal pós-tônica. A análise estatística foi realizada por meio dos testes Kruskall Wallis e qui-quadrado, com índice de significância de 95%. RESULTADOS: a expressão da dúvida apresenta taxa de articulação mais baixa no grupo controle, seguida da forma neutra e de certeza, com diferenças estatisticamente significantes. Ainda no grupo controle, foi observado presença de pausas e disfluências somente na expressão de dúvida. No grupo experimental, a maior diferença encontrada foi na duração da vogal da sílaba tônica. CONCLUSÃO: de uma forma geral, o GC variou mais sua organização temporal a fim de expressar as atitudes. No entanto, é possível observar também uma tendência semelhante no grupo de pessoas com gagueira. Quanto à velocidade de fala, ao retirar as pausas e as disfluências, vemos que tanto GE1 quanto GE2 diferenciam a certeza, articulando cada sílaba de forma mais rápida.PURPOSE: to examine the role of speech temporal organization on the expression as for the attitudes of certainty and doubt in the group of adults who stutter, comparing such analysis with a group of speech-fluent adults.

  13. Structural mechanics studies at E.D.F

    Baylac, G.


    Structural mechanics studies at EDF have three goals: a better knowledge of the materials properties, an an improvement of the design, and a better in service surveillance of the components. This study has lead EDF to perform a large investment to make possible the fatigue survey of the primary circuit. This investment is of 10 men-years for the mechanical studies. A cumulative bookkeeping of the transients is now in action at Fessenheim I and II, Bugey II to V, Tricastin I, Gravelines I, Dampierre I. A catalog of the transients easy to use will be provided to each unit in the near future. The design of the new four loop plants will take advantage of a new catalog of the design transients, this catalog being used for the purpose of the design and the bookkeeping of the transients. Experimental and theoretical investigations concerning the vibrations of PWR internals and primary circuit have been carried out at Fessenheim I, Bugey V and Tricastin I . As a result of these studies and complementary studies on Safran mock-up, EDF has been able to define with FRAMATOME and CEA a monitoring system to meet the requirements of the safety authorities. The monitoring system is divided in to three parts: loose - parts detection system accelerometers; monitoring of reactor internals by neutron noise measurements; monitoring of heavy components vibrations by accelerometers. This system is now installed in all PWR units. Some developments are in progress at EDF mainly at the Directorate of Research and Development to improve the procedures of the control and to define the criteria for an early diagnostic of the anomalies. The major reports are Surveillance du comportement vibratoire des composants de circuit primaire; Vibration studies on a three loop PWR internals model; and Nuclear Reactor Surveillance - Neutron noise measurements and vibrations analysis on French PWR Internal structures

  17. A Model of Secondary Hydrocarbon Migration As a Buoyancy-Driven Separate Phase Flow Un modèle de migration secondaire des hydrocarbures considéré comme un écoulement en phases séparées régi par la poussée d'Archimède

    Lehner F. K.


    Full Text Available A mathematical model of secondary migration is described which permits the prediction of hydrocarbon migration and accumulation patterns in a sedimentary basin, if source rock expulsion rates and geometrical and hydraulic properties of major carrier systems are known through geological time. In this model, secondary migration is treated as buoyancy-driven, segregated flow of hydrocarbons in hydrostatic aquifers. Lateral, updip migration is conceived as a Boussinesq-type, free-surface flow, with source and sink terms representing supply from source rocks and leakage through cap rocks and faults. This permits a two-dimensional, map-view mathematical description of a three-dimensional, time-dependent secondary migration system. A nine-point finite difference approximation has been developed to minimize numerical dispersion, and upstream-weighting is used to obtain stable solutions. Example computations for simple, single carrier bed structures are presented. L'article décrit un modèle mathématique de migration secondaire prédisant la migration des hydrocarbures et leur accumulation dans un bassin sédimentaire, lorsque les taux d'expulsion des roches mères et les propriétés géométriques et hydrauliques des principaux systèmes de drainage sont connus à l'échelle du temps géologique. Dans ce modèle, la migration secondaire est traitée comme un écoulement des hydrocarbures en phase séparée, contrôlé par la poussée d'Archimède, dans des aquifères hydrostatiques. La migration latérale est considérée comme un écoulement de type Boussinesq, à surface libre, avec des termes sources et puits représentant les apports venant des roches mères et les fuites à travers les couvertures et les failles. Ceci permet une description mathématique bidimensionnelle cartographiable d'un système de migration secondaire tridimensionnel et dépendant du temps. On utilise une approximation type différences finies à neuf points pour minimiser

    Full Text Available Desde o século XIX o catolicismo foi assinalado por uma divisão interna advinda das demandas pastorais de como a Igreja Católica deveria se situar e responder aos novos desafios lançados pela modernidade. Uns entendiam que ela deveria dialogar com modernidade, abrindo-se àquelas perspectivas positivas do projeto moderno, outros negavam qualquer possibilidade de tal diálogo, vendo nos valores modernos apenas anticristianismo e perdição, defendendo o lançamento de anátemas aqueles que, possivelmente, se desviassem da ortodoxia. O Concílio Vaticano II (1962-1965 pode ser compreendido como um campo de lutas simbólico-normativas, no qual estas duas tendências colocaram-se frente a frente nos inúmeros debates. Este artigo tem como objetivo principal apresentar brevemente a atuação de dois bispos brasileiros conservadores no concílio: D. Antônio de Castro Mayer e D. Geraldo de Proença Sigaud (1962-1965. Para tanto, apresentaremos algumas das principais intervenções dos bispos na assembleia conciliar, chamando atenção para os temas em que travaram maior combate, como liberdade religiosa, liturgia e organização hierárquica da Igreja. AbstractSince the 19th century Catholicism has been marked by internal divisions arising from the pastoral demands of how the Catholic Church should position itself and deal with the new challenges launched by modern times. Some people understood that the Catholic Church was supposed to evolve with modern times and open itself to new perspectives related to the modern project. Others denied any possibility of dialogue with the modern times and believed that modern values would encourage scepticism and anti Christianity, defending also the excommunication of those who deviate from orthodoxy. The Second Vatican Council (1962-1965 can be understood as a symbolic-normative battle field, in which two divergent positions are in continuous confrontation. This article aims to briefly present the

    Luciane Cristina Bertholo


    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: As hemoglobinopatias resultam de alterações hereditárias, sendo prevalentes em muitas regiões do mundo, mas atingem a população brasileira de forma significativa. Elas são decorrentes de alterações em genes estruturais responsáveis pelo aparecimento das hemoglobinas variantes e/ou em genes reguladores, resultando nas talassemias. A identificação dessas patologias tem sido rotineiramente realizada por procedimentos eletroforéticos, contudo nossa experiência laboratorial evidencia que as mesmas nem sempre apresentam resoluções suficientes para a correta caracterização da mutação. CASUÍSTICAS E MÉTODOS: O propósito deste trabalho foi estabelecer uma metodologia válida para a caracterização das hemoglobinas S, C e D em homozigose ou heterozigose, e suas possíveis interações, baseada na amplificação gênica alelo-específica (PCR-AE com a utilização de primers sense, antisense e primers que se acoplam na posição do alelo mutante e na respectiva posição do alelo normal. RESULTADOS E DISCUSSÃO: Os resultados evidenciaram a validade dessa metodologia na caracterização das mutações, sendo esse procedimento de fácil realização, reprodutível e possível de ser aplicado em um significativo número de amostras.BRACKGROUND: The hemoglobinopathies are a group of hereditary hemoglobin disorders in worldwide distribution, affecting Brazilian population significantly; they are decurrent of alterations in structural genes, responsible for hemoglobin variants, and/or in regulatory genes, resulting the thalassemia. These disorders have been identified in most cases by electrophoretics procedures, and our laboratory experience points out that sometimes they do not obtain enough resolution for a right characterization of mutation. MATERIAL AND METHOD: The objective of this study was to establish a valid laboratory methodology for the characterization of hemoglobins S, C and D in homozygous or heterozygous and

Efeitos da precipitação pluvial, da umidade relativa do ar e de excesso e déficit hídrico do solo no peso do hectolitro, no peso de mil grãos e no rendimento de grãos de trigo Effects of rainfall, relative humidity and water excess and deficit on test weight, thousand kernel weight, and grain yield of wheat

    Eliana Maria Guarienti


    Full Text Available Cerca de 90% da produção de trigo no Brasil está localizada nos estados do Paraná, do Rio Grande do Sul e de Santa Catarina. Nesses estados, a variabilidade climática é muito expressiva, tornando a produção tritícola uma atividade de risco e fazendo com que o decréscimo da produção e da produtividade de trigo seja objeto de questionamento de grande número de investigadores. Este trabalho teve por objetivo verificar a influência da precipitação pluvial, da umidade relativa do ar e de excesso e déficit hídrico do solo no peso do hectolitro, peso de mil grãos e rendimento de grãos. Foram usados dados de experimentos com a cultivar de trigo Embrapa 16, conduzidos durante os anos de 1990 a 1998, em sete locais do Rio Grande do Sul e em quatro locais de Santa Catarina. A análise estatística realizada foi correlação múltipla. Verificou-se que: a a precipitação pluvial e o excesso hídrico do solo afetaram negativamente o peso do hectolitro, peso de mil grãos e rendimento de grãos, e a umidade relativa do ar influenciou tanto positiva quanto negativamente essas variáveis; b o déficit hídrico do solo afetou positivamente o peso do hectolitro, peso de mil grãos e rendimento de grãos após a maturação fisiológica, isto é, nos dez primeiros dias anteriores à colheita, e negativamente nos demais períodos.About 90% of the wheat production in Brazil is located in Paraná, Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina states. In these states there is a considerable climatic variability and consequently wheat production becomes a risky activity.

    Lepetit, J.P.; Delcambre, J.


    The implementation of a major nuclear development program has needed numerous research efforts in the field of environment and greatly enhanced knowledge both of natural mechanisms and impacts of facilities. On an other hand, in spite of an important reduction of oil fired stations use, studies are still performed in relation with the national and european efforts to improve air quality. The following topics are reviewed: - studies relating to water: thermal impact, effect of heating in the aquatic environment, capture of fish in intake structures and impact of transit, biological fooling, radioactive discharges, hydraulic facilities. - Impact on the atmospheric: applied meteorology, impact of cooling towers, dispersion in the atmospheric and chemical contents of the air, SO2, NOx, particles and trace pollutants, acid rain, release reduction technology, radioactive discharges. - Acoustic environment: noise generation, radiated acoustic levels [fr

  4. La femme et sa destinée d'après Edith Stein

    Philippe Lauria


    Full Text Available Woman's Destiny according Edith Stein The following essay aims to show that Edith Stein's conception of women was a feminist and a traditionalist one. This could be interpreted by some philosophers as a sort of contradiction. Thus the author presents the different arguments detecting such  a conflict between feminism and traditionalism. These arguments are based in fact on the opposition between nature or essence, on the one hand, and freedom, on the other hand. The thesis of the author is that there is not necessarily a conflict between essence and freedom, and that essence is not a fiction but an ontological reality which, interpreted in the way of Edith Stein, makes it possible to conceive sexual difference in a perfect synthesis between the Christian tradition and gender equality.

  10. Deuteron tensor polarization in the e-+d →e-+p+n process

    Rekalo, M.P.; Gakh, G.I.; Rekalo, A.P.


    The polarization phenomena in the d-vector(e, ep)n reaction caused by the deuteron tensor polarization have been investigated in the relativistic impulse approximation (IA) framework. It is shown that in general case the tensor polarization leads to 16 Asymmetries. Sensitivity of these observables to the choice of the deuteron wave function parametrization has been investigated. The calculated asymmetry in the d-vector(e, pn)e' reation caused by the tensor polarization of the target is in good agreement with experimental data obtained in Novosibirsk. The calculated asymmetry in the nonrelativistic and relativistic IA are significantly different

  18. Soil nitrogen dynamics in high-altitude ski runs during the winter season (Monterosaski - Vallée d

    Freppaz, M.; Icardi, M.; Filippa, G.; Zanini, E.


    In many Alpine catchments, the development of winter tourism determined a widespread change in land use, shifting from forested and cultivated lands to ski slopes. The construction of a ski slope implies a strong impact on the landscape, with potential consequences on the soil quality. In most cases, the construction procedures include the total or partial removal of the soil body, the reallocation of the fine hearth fraction, the subsequent seeding of plants and the use of organic fertilizers. This work aims to evaluate soil physical and chemical properties and nitrogen (N) dynamics in anthropogenic soils from ski slopes of different age. Study sites were located in Champoluc (AO)- NW Italy between 2400 and 2700 m ASL. Topsoils (0-10 cm depth) were sampled in 4 ski slopes hydroseeded with commercial mixtures 4, 6, 10 and 12 years earlier, and in 4 control plots at the same exposure and altitude as the ski slopes. Soil samples were characterized, N dynamics in winter was evaluated with the buried bag technique and snowpack was analyzed for chemical and physical properties. Total nitrogen (TN) content in topsoil ranged 0.75-1.06 g kg-1 and was not correlated with the ski slope age. In all but one site, the TN content was significantly lower in the ski slope than in the control plot. A positive net ammonification and nitrification throughout the winter were found in all but one ski runs. These results suggest a high variability in the evolution degree of these anthropogenic soils. The net overwinter N mineralization that we report demonstrates that these soils are biologically active during the winter season. Such activity results in a pool of labile inorganic nitrogen potentially available for plant demand at the spring snowmelt.

    Recent results obtained by the application of the Bethe-Salpeter approach to the analysis of elastic electron-deuteron scattering with the separable NN kernel are presented. We analyze the impact of the P waves (negative-energy components) on the electromagnetic properties of the deuteron and compare it with experimental data. It was shown that the contribution of the P waves must be taken into account to explain tensor polarization and charge form factor of the deuteron

  2. Reflections on the simultaneous existence of the Heisenberg and interaction pictures in practical pre-theories of Q.E.D

    Yoakam, M.C.


    The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the possiblity of simultaneously incorporating both Lorentz invariance and a special gauge invariance among Boson fields satisfying Proca-like commutators and gauge conditions (including Proca, Feynman, Yennie, Landau, and Coester Gauge choices for the commutators) as a stationary condition in both the interaction and Heisenberg pictures for Lagrangian formulations of second-quantized neutral vector-meson theories (which include regularization by the auxillary-field method) before the regularization is removed. This approach, if ultimately successful, will demonstrate the Lorentz invariance and gauge invariance can be included as internal symmetries of a regularized form of quantum electrodynamics. It was demonstrated that, with spinor mass-counterterms but without Boson mass-counterterms, a generalization of the method of Coester and Stueckelberg to reduce the usual forms of the Proca-like field interactions to the simpler Coester interaction is applicable. Therefore, the choice of the interaction operator is more general than its surface appearance would indicate. Under the same restriction, it was shown that a simple generalization of the Fermi operator will provide stationary gauge conditions for the Proca-like Boson operators, but that the requirement of limited-gauge-invariance in both the Heisenberg and interaction pictures removes the ambiguity usually associated with the Fermi operator. In the presence of the Boson mass counterterms, it was shown that the subsidiary conditions are, in general, no longer stationary in the Heisenberg picture

  3. Search for the Decay Modes D0 to e+ e-, D0 to mu+ mu-, and D0 to e+/- mu+/-

    Lees, J. P.


    We present searches for the rare decay modes D{sup 0} {yields} e{sup +}e{sup -}, D{sup 0} {yields} {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -}, and D{sup 0} {yields} e{sup {+-}}{mu}{sup {-+}} in continuum e{sup +}e{sup -} {yields} c{bar c} events recorded by the BABAR detector in a data sample that corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 468 fb{sup -1}. These decays are highly GIM suppressed but may be enhanced in several extensions of the Standard Model. Our observed event yields are consistent with the expected backgrounds. An excess is seen in the D{sup 0} {yields} {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -} channel, although the observed yield is consistent with an upward background fluctuation at the 5% level. Using the Feldman-Cousins method, we set the following 90% confidence level intervals on the branching fractions: {Beta}(D{sup 0} {yields} e{sup +}e{sup -}) < 1.7 x 10{sup -7}, {Beta}(D{sup 0} {yields} {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -}) within [0.6, 8.1] x 10{sup -7}, and {Beta}(D{sup 0} {yields} e{sup {+-}}{mu}{sup {-+}}) < 3.3 x 10{sup -7}.

    Full Text Available Las concepciones son ideas  u opiniones que se adquieren en la vida cotidiana y el ambiente escolar a través de diferentes experiencias. La primera intervención  didáctica evidencia las concepciones del concepto sistema nervioso, que poseen 6  estudiantes de grado noveno (901, con edades entre 14 y 17 años, de la ciudad de Bogotá D.C, del colegio Antonio Nariño de la jornada tarde. Las concepciones se analizaron bajo el paradigma cualitativo interpretativo; para el análisis se realizaron tres categorías emergentes; que se derivan a partir de los resultados obtenidos en el aula de clase: 1. Funcionalidad, 2. Estructuras Morfológicas y 3. Experiencias, basadas en la información obtenida del cuestionario que se aplicó. Se reconoció que los estudiantes aíslan el sistema nervioso de los demás sistemas, al mismo tiempo le atribuyen funciones motoras y sensitivas. Finalmente se evidencia en sus escritos que tienen errores conceptuales, y contradicen sus explicaciones.

  11. A boundary element analysis on the influence of Krc and e/d on the performance of cyclically loaded single pile in clay

    S. Basack

    Full Text Available The environment prevalent in oceans necessitates the piles supporting offshore structures to be designed against lateral cyclic loading initiated by wave action. Such quasi-static load reversal induces deterioration in the strength and stiffness of the soil-pile system, introducing progressive reduction in the bearing capacity associated with increased settlement of the pile foundation. To understand the effect of lateral cyclic load on axial response of single piles in soft clay, a numerical model was previously developed and validated by the author. Using the methodology, further analysis has been carried out to investigate how the variation in relative pilesoil stiffness and eccentricity effects the degradation of axial pile capacity due to the effect of lateral cyclic load. This paper presents a brief description of the methodology, analysis and interpretations of the theoretical results obtained from the further analysis and the relevant conclusions drawn there from.

  12. Determination of the electronic neutral-current couplings from e-d and e-p scatterings in connection with the effects of sea components

    Oka, Takamitsu.


    We make analyses of the parity-violating asymmetries of electron-deuteron and electron-proton deep inelastic scatterings including sea quark contribution and adopting three different kinds of parton distribution functions. Both results from electron-deuteron and from electron-proton scatterings coincide with the prediction of the Weinberg-Salam model. Our results are found to be insensitive to the difference among the three kinds of parton distribution functions. We also study the x-, y-, and sin 2 theta sub(w)-dependences of A/Q 2 in the Weinberg-Salam model. Experiments at higher y value will be useful for more precise determination of the Weinberg angle theta sub(w). (author)

  14. Application of sewage sludges in cultivates; Aplicacion de lodos digeridos procedentes de una E.D.A.R de lechos bacterianos en cultivos horticolas

    Manas Ramirez, P.; Castro Barrilero, E.; Hera de las Ibanez, J.; Sanchez Tebar, J. C.


    In general, wastewater sewage sludge contains a great proportion of water, organic matter and mineral elements and can be used in agriculture as organic amendment. Nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium use to appear in most sewage sludge but in several cases heavy metals can be found in their chemical composition primarily when they come from industrial wastewater. The toxicity risk will depend on the heavy metals concentration and mobility. The wastewater depuration plant of Albacete is based on biological percolation filters and process daily about 48.000 m''3 of water 6.000 m''3 of which is industrial wastewater. The goal of this paper is to determine the agricultural aptitude of the digested sludge of this depuration plant using as control Lactuca sativa L. Results obtained showed significant differences among lettuce plants that were fertilized with three sludge dose and control. (Author) 26 refs.

  15. Experience in maintenance of pumps in test facilities at R.E.D., B.A.R.C. [Paper No.: II-5

    Nangia, H.V.; Soni, K.L.; Kamath, K.V.; Mahajan, S.C.


    Centrifugal pumps are used for circulating water in various test facilities which are meant for testing reactor components. Operating pressures are about 85 bars at 250 degC. Reciprocating pumps are used for make up service at pressures upto 160 bars. A primary heat transport pump for 200 MWe Candu type reactor, is being tested for checking its performance and for collection of base data. The following are discussed: (i) failure of hydrostatic seal and hydrostatic bearing and its causes, (ii) subsequent repairs and reconditioning, (iii) steps taken to avoid repetition of such failures, and (iv) problems in assembly. For a pump used in the fuelling machine test facility, following maintenance problems are discussed: (1) failure of various components like bearings, mechanical, seals, wear rings, etc., (2) causes of failure and steps taken to remedy the deficiencies noted, (3) experience with the indigenous antifriction bearings, and (4) experience with indigenous spiral wound gaskets. For the reciprocating pumps, leakage through gland packing is a problem. Experience with various types of packing and other parameters, affecting leakage are discussed. (author)

    Vicente Canecchio Filho


    Full Text Available No presente trabalho são relatadas experiências com 16 variedades de amendoim (Arachis hypogaea, L., recebidas dos Estados Unidos da América do Norte, do Congo Belga e de várias regiões do Brasil. Essas experiências, em número de oito, das quais três pertencentes à décima série (ano agrícola de 1953/54 e cinco compreendendo a décima-primeira série (ano agrícola de 1954/55, foram executadas nas localidades de Campinas, Ribeirão Prêto, Pindorama, Presidente Prudente e Tatuí, no Estado de São Paulo. Os resultados obtidos mostraram que, para as condições em que foram realizados os ensaios, as variedades Paulista-269, Bandeirante-263, Brasília-265, Centenário-264 e Tatuí-76, sobressairam-se das demais, notadamente a primeira, que, de um modo geral, foi bem classificada em todas as localidades, não só em relação à produção como pelo alto teor em óleo, nos frutos. A variedade Tatu-53 (testemunha, ainda bastante cultivada no Estado, classificou-se entre as piores. As maiores produções foram obtidas em terra arenosa. Nas terras roxa e roxa-misturada, também se conseguiram boas produções. Já na região representada pela terra massapê as produções foram fracas, confirmando os resultados dos anos anteriores.This paper reports the results obtained from field tests with sexteen peanut varieties received from the United States of America, Belgium Congo and several Brazilian regions. Eight experiments were conducted in the following counties of the State of São Paulo: Campinas, Ribeirão Preto, Pindorama, Presidente Prudente and Tatuí. Yield data showed the varieties Paulista-269, Bandeirante-263, Brasilia-265, Centenário-264 and Tatui-76 to prove better, particularly the first one, that ranked good classification in every locality as far as seed production and oil content of the seeds are concerned. Variety Tatu-53 which still widespreads all over the State, was one of the least yielders. The highest yields were obtained on sandy soils. On "terra-roxa" or "terra-roxa-misturada" soils, high production levels were also obtained; on the "massapé" soil the harvest was poor, thus ratifying prior results.

    Full Text Available En la actualidad en las instituciones educativas existe dificultad por construir prácticas relacionadas con temas ambientales, a consecuencia de que no hay suficiente claridad en la forma de diseñar e implementar propuestas, propiciando que lo abordado desde los proyectos ambientales no tenga el impacto esperado. Razón que genera la necesidad de iniciar procesos investigativos que establezcan coherencia en las posturas curriculares, políticas nacionales y los contextos escolares en los que está inmersa la educación ambiental.   Por lo cual, el presente estudio se planteó con el objetivo de identificar las representaciones sociales frente al ambiente y la educación ambiental que poseían algunos miembros de una institución educativa de carácter público en Bogotá. Con el fin de iniciar procesos formativos que lleven a trabajar la educación ambiental de manera interdisciplinar en la escuela desde miradas reflexivas, que nos permitan construir una visión global del ambiente.   Para lo cual se utilizó un enfoque metodológico cualitativo apoyado en la técnica de entrevistas y como instrumento el cuestionario.   Concluyendo que el grupo de participantes no presentan una única representación social de ambiente definiéndolo desde tres miradas: como el medio de vida, los recursos a utilizar y la naturaleza. Y la educación ambiental desde las visiones naturalista, conservacionista - recursista y humanista. Evidenciando la importancia de generar más que actividades puntuales, procesos formativos en educación ambiental que vinculen a los diversos sujetos de las comunidades educativas.

  19. The Schoonebeek Oilfield: the Rw-2e High Pressure Steam Injection Project Gisement de Schoonebeek : le projet RW-2E d'injection de vapeur à haute pression

    Holtam V. R.


    Full Text Available The daily oil production from the Schoonebeek Oilfield amounts to some 1400 m3 /d, of which ca. 65% is produced from a high pressure (85 bar steam injection project. This project was started in 1981 and originally consisted of 7 structurally downdip/middip steam injectors. However, following the initially somewhat disappointing project performance, steam injection was moved to 4 middip/ updip injectors in 1984. This change in the location of the steam injectors, together with an increase in the level of surveillance and a more pragmatic reservoir management policy, has resulted in improved project performance. The ultimate extra oil/steam ratio for the total project is now expected to be 0. 7 m3 oil/ton of steam injected. La production de pétrole du gisement de Schoonebeek est d'environ 1400 m3/jour, dont près de 65% sont obtenus par injection de vapeur à haute pression (85 bar. Ce projet lancé en 1981 comportait initialement 7 injecteurs de vapeur orientés vers l'aval-pendage. En raison de performances décevantes, l'injection de vapeur a été transférée en 1984 sur 4 injecteurs travaillant vers l'amont-pendage. Ce changement de position des injecteurs, accompagné d'une surveillance renforcée et d'une politique de gestion du gisement plus pragmatique, a donné des résultats favorables. On pense que le rapport pétrole/vapeur pour l'ensemble du projet devrait être en dernière analyse de 0,7 m3 de pétrole par tonne de vapeur injectée.

  4. Ruptures et continuité culturelles dans la basse vallée du Yapatera: approche typologique formalisée d'un matériel céramique récolté en prospection


    Full Text Available La basse vallée du Yapatera, dans le haut Piura, est un delta alluvionnaire, dont soixante kilomètres carrés ont été prospectés systématiquement en 1988, dans le but de réunir une documentation suffisante pour reconstruire l’occupation humaine préhispanique de cette microrégion. à partir de l’étude formelle du matériel céramique récolté en surface, l’auteur propose une séquence culturelle qui commence au Xème s. av. notre ère et se termine à la veille de la conquête espagnole. La technique de classification et de sériation proposée est adaptée au type de matériel étudié : la très forte fragmentation des tessons de céramique empêche en effet toute analyse strictement morphologique ou stylistique. C’est donc à partir d’une analyse technologique sur un grand nombre de tessons (type de pâte et technique de décor qu’est établie la sériation, à l’aide de statistiques multidimensionnelles. Une approche morpho-typométrique des formes sans col complète cette première analyse. La séquence obtenue est ensuite comparée aux données déjà existantes sur la région. Les correspondances, observées avec les séquences de Lanning et de Richardson notamment, renforcent la validité des propositions et une attribution culturelle est proposée pour chacune des huit ensembles reconnus. L’étude du nombre et de la localisation des sites de chaque ensemble complète l’analyse. La comparaison de la totalité des résultats a permis de reconnaître huit ensembles chronologiques et de mettre en évidence l’existence de deux ruptures principales dans la production céramique et les traditions technologiques. Ces ruptures semblent correspondre à l’arrivée de groupes allogènes centre andins. La première rupture, au début de notre ère, correspond à l’installation des mochica dans le piémont piuranais et à l’émergence de la culture Vicús, dont le centre se trouve à une vingtaine de kilomètres au sud de la basse vallée. Cette rupture voit l’apparition de l’irrigation, et de nouvelles techniques décoratives céramiques (modelage, moulage et palette. La deuxième rupture, plus marquée, a lieu vers le Xème ou le XIIème s. Elle correspond à une nouvelle arrivée de groupes culturels côtiers venant du Sud, que ce soient les tallán, dont l’existence n’est pas clairement attestée, ou les chimú, dont la présence se note par l’apparition d’une céramique particulière élaborée au moule. Cette recherche préliminaire ne répond pas directement à la question du développement culturel de la région de Piura, mais a permis d’élaborer une méthode de lecture rationnelle du matériel céramique. Cette analyse formelle, basée sur une approche technologique, permet en effet d’intégrer des données provenant de prospection, de fouilles stratigraphiques, de collections muséographiques et les informations disponibles dans les publications. Ainsi une étude régionale et pluridisciplinaire de la production céramique est envisagée à partir des résultats de ce premier travail. RUPTURAS Y CONTINUIDAD CULTURALES EN EL VALLE BAJO DEL YAPATERA: APROXIMACIÓN TIPOLÓGICA FORMALIZADA DE UN MATERIAL CERÁMICO RECOLECTADO DURANTE UNA PROSPECCIÓN. El valle bajo del Yapatera, Alto Piura, es un delta aluvial, cuyos sesenta kilómetros cuadrados han sido prospectados sistemáticamente en 1988, para reunir una documentación suficiente para reconstruir su ocupación humana prehispánica. A partir del estudio formal del material cerámico recolectado en superficie, el autor propone una secuencia cultural que empieza por el siglo X antes de nuestra era para acabarse en vísperas de la conquista española. La técnica de clasificación y de seriación propuesta es adaptada al tipo de material estudiado: la muy fuerte fragmentación de los tiestos de cerámica impide, de hecho, todo análisis estrictamente morfológico o estilístico. Es entonces a partir de un análisis tecnológico sobre un gran número de tiestos (tipo de pasta y técnica de decorado que está establecida la seriación, con la ayuda de las estadísticas multidimencionales. Un análisis morfotipométrico de las formas sin cuellos acaba este primero análisis. En seguida, se compara la secuencia obtenida con los datos ya existentes sobre la región. Las correspondencias observadas con las secuencias de Lanning y de Richardson, entre otros, refuerzan la validez de las propuestas y se propone una atribución cultural para cada una de los ocho conjuntos reconocidos. El estudio del número et de la localización de los sitios de cada fase completa el análisis. La comparación global de estos resultados ha permitido reconocer ocho conjuntos y poner en evidencia la existencia de dos rupturas principales en la producción cerámica y en las tradiciones tecnológicas. Esas rupturas parecen corresponder a la llegada de grupos alógenos centro andinos. La primera ruptura, al principio de nuestra era, corresponde a la instalación de los mochica en el piedemonte piurano y a la emergencia de la cultura Vicús, cuyo centro se sitúa a unos veinte kilómetros al sur del valle bajo. Esta ruptura ve la aparición del riego, de la metalurgia y nuevas técnicas decorativas en cerámica (moldeado, molde y paleteado. La segunda ruptura, más marcada, se hace alrededor del siglo X o XII. ésta corresponde a la llegada de nuevos grupos culturales de la costa sur, que sean los tallán, cuya existencia todavía no está claramente establecida, o que sean los chimú, cuya presencia está atestiguada por la aparición de una cerámica peculiar elaborada con molde. Esta primera investigación no responde directamente al problema del desarrollo cultural en la región de Piura, pero permite elaborar un método de lectura racional del material cerámico. Este análisis formal, basado en un enfoque tecnológico, permite la integración de datos provenientes de prospecciones, de excavaciones estratigráficas, de colecciones museográficas y de las informaciones publicadas. Así, el estudio regional y multidisciplinario de la producción cerámica es propuesto a partir de los resultados de este primero trabajo. CULTURALS RUPTURES AND CONTINUITY IN THE LOW VALLEY OF YAPATERA: FORMALIZED CATEGORIZATION APPROACH OF A POTTERY MATERIAL RECOLLECTED ON SURFACE. The low valley of Yapatera located in the Piura highlands, an alluvial delta of sixty square kilometers, has been prospected systematically in 1988, in order to collect enough information to reassemble the prehispanic human occupation on this micro-region. From the formal study of the pottery material recollected on surface, the author proposes a cultural sequence which begins on the Xth Century B.C. and ends at the verge of the spanish conquest. The proposed classification and coding technique is adapted to the kind of material in study: the severe fragmentation on the pottery pieces found turns impossible every effort to make an effective and entire analysis strictly morphological and stylistic. For this reason, the codification was established only after the technological study of a great number of pieces (kind of paste and decoration technique with the aid of multidimensional statistics. A morpho-tipométrique approach of neckless shapes concludes this first analysis. The data obtained was compared to those already existing in the region. Similarities observed with the Lanning and Richardson sequences strengthen remarkably the relevance of the proposals and a cultural characteristic is suggested to each of the eight recognized groups. The study of number and location of sites in each group concludes the analysis. The whole comparison of these results grants the identification of height chronological groups and demonstrates the existence of two major ruptures in the pottery production and technological traditions. These ruptures seem to relate to the arrival of foreign central andean group. The first one, at the beginning of our era, relates to the establishment of the mochica in the piuran piedmont at the verge of the Vicus culture, which center is located twenty kilometers south of the low valley. Such rupture leads us to the appearance of the irrigation and the new pottery decoration techniques (modelage, molding and palette…. The second rupture is more emphasized in the Xth or the XIIth Century. It relates to the arrival of new cultural groups who came from the South, like the tallan which existence has not yet been attested clearly, or the chimu which presence is noted by the appearance of a particular pottery prepared by molding. This preliminary research does not respond directly to the question of cultural development in the Piura region, even though it granted the creation of a rational reading method on pottery material. This formal analysis, based on a technological approach, granted the effect to integrate the information collected on surface, stratigraphic excavations, museum compilations and data available in publications. In this way, a regional and pluridisciplinary study of pottery production is considered from the results of the first accomplishment.

As enteroparasitoses representaram 32,14% das hospitalizações de crianças, a maioria entre 0 a 3 anos. As crianças com déficit nutricional foram as mais hospitalizadas com enteroparasitoses e as que apresentaram graves quadros de infecções por Ascaris lumbricoides quando comparadas com crianças em condições nutricionais normais. Os resultados sugerem que a desnutrição é um fator agravante para a suscetibilidade a infecções por enteroparasitas.High prevalence of Ascaris infection in young children led to intensive studies in many countries focusing on its effect on nutritional status. However, few works described the number of hospitalized children with intestinal parasitic infection in different places. These data prompted us to investigate the prevalenceof hospitalized children with enteroparasite in three hospitals at Guarapuava city, State of Paraná, associating degree of infection, age, sex and nutritional conditions. The nutritional state of the children was evaluated by anthropometric measurements adopted by the World Health Organization, using as standard reference the curve adopted by the National Center of Health Statistic. The intestinal parasitic infection represented 32.14% of hospitalized children, and the majority was between 0 and 3 years of age. Moreover, the malnourished children were more hospitalized with enteroparasites and Ascaris-infection aggravate compared with nourished children. In conclusion, the results suggest that the malnutrition is an aggravating factor to the susceptibility to enteroparasite infections.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Examinar fatores socioeconômicos e outras condições de vida familiar associadas a excesso de peso, baixa estatura e baixo peso para a estatura em menores de 5 anos. MÉTODOS: Estudo transversal avaliou 3.957 crianças entre 1 mês e 5 anos de idade durante campanha nacional de imunização no município de São Leopoldo (RS em 2002. As condições socioeconômicas e de saneamento das áreas de abrangência das unidades de saúde foram agrupadas por análise de cluster dos setores do censo populacional de 2001. RESULTADOS: Déficit de peso para estatura ocorreu em 2,6% das crianças, baixa estatura em 9,1% e excesso de peso em 9,8%. A regressão logística multivariada sugere que os fatores associados à chance de excesso de peso foram: área de condições socioeconômicas alta (RC = 1,47; IC95% 1,09-1,96, filhos únicos (RC = 1,44; IC95% 1,00-2,07 e peso ao nascer ≥ 2.500 g (RC = 2,21; IC95%1,27-3,83. A chance de déficit de peso associou-se ao baixo peso ao nascer (RC = 3,46; IC95% 2,06-5,80 e idade da mãe OBJECTIVE: To explore whether socioeconomic and sanitary conditions, maternal and child factors are associated with overweight, stunting, and wasting in children under five year old in the city of São Leopoldo, southern Brazil. METHODS: Cross-sectional study of 3,957 children aged 1 month to 5 years conducted in all primary care services of the city during the National Children's Vaccination Day in 2002. Maternal and child factors were assessed by a questionnaire. Children's height and weight were measured. Cluster analysis was used to group the areas served by the primary care services according to socioeconomic and sanitary conditions of the census tracts assessed by the 2001 National Census. RESULTS: Wasting was observed in 2.6% of children, stunting in 9.1% and overweight in 9.8%. The multivariable logistic regression model suggests that overweight was associated with higher socioeconomic status and better sanitation of the area (OR = 1.47; 95%CI 1.09-1.96, single child (OR = 1.44; 95%CI 1.00-2.07 and birth weight ≥ 2,500 g (OR = 2.21; 95%CI 1.27-3.83. Wasting was associated with low birth weight (OR = 3.46; 95%CI 2.06-5.80 and mother's age < 20 years (OR = 1.99; 95%CI 1.09-3.62. Stunting was associated with low socioeconomic status and poor sanitation of the area (OR = 2.36; 95%CI 1.51-3.69, three or more siblings (OR = 3.12; 95%CI 2.18-4.47, low birth weight < 2,500 g (OR = 3.49; 95%CI 2.53-4.80, child age < 36 months (OR = 1.77; 95%CI 1.37-2.29 and mother's age < 20 years (OR = 1.60; 95%CI 1.09-2.35. CONCLUSIONS: Overweight and stunting were the major anthropometric problems and therefore should be a priority for public policies.

    Due to the next European Directives that are being prepared about the waste management, specially about the organic fraction (U. S. W. sewage sludges, pig slurries, etc.) it will be necessary a previous biological treatment of the waste before spreading it on the soil. the current work studies the windrow composting of sewage sludge from an urban wastewater treatment plant mixed with a recirculated vegetal fraction in two different volumetric ratios (2:1 and 1:1). Temperature and oxygen consumption are measured to control the composting process, as well as the turning frequency and the quantity of products that is degradated. Although the process reaches thermofilic temperatures in both windrow, it is showed that in the 2:1 ratio more sludge is proportionally degradated. An economic study of the composting of this sewage sludge in different composting methods (dynamic and semi static) was made. (Author) 7 refs.

Dados de literatura mostram que a população adulta apresenta elevada prevalência de marcadores do vírus da hepatite B (HBV. O presente estudo visa determinar a prevalência dos marcadores do HBV e do HDV na população indígena do PIX de zero a 14 anos, e investigar a forma de transmissão do HBV na região. Entre as 17 tribos existentes no PIX escolheu-se os Caiabi e os Txucairamãe que diferem em seus hábitos de vida e habitam a região Norte do parque com características de clima, vegetação e fauna semelhantes ás da região Amazônica. Avaliaram-se 222 crianças (116 Txucarramãe e 106 Caiabi e 33 mulheres em idade fértil. A pesquisa de marcadores sorológicos para HBV e HDV foi feita por técnica imunoenzimãtica. A prevalência global dos marcadores sorológicos nas crianças foi: HBsAg 4,5%; anti-HBs 39,6%; anti- HBc 44,1%; presença de algum marcador do HBV 47,3% e anti-HDV 0,0%, enquanto que nas mulheres em idade fértil foi: HBsAg 12%, todas anti-HBe positivas. A infecção pelo HBV ocoireu mais precocemente entre os Txucarramãe, quando se considerou algum marcador do HBV (p The medical literature bas shoum that the inhabitants of the Amazon region are highly affected by hepatites B and delta viruses infection, but this has never been studied in Indian children by age group. A study of the prevalence of serological markers of hepatitis B and delta viruses in Indian children aged 0 to 14 years living in the PIX was carried out. Tim Park is located in Central Brazil, a region which is in the transition between the savannah to the south and the Amazon jungle to the north. To determine the prevalence of HBV and HDV markers in Indian children and to characteiize the route of HBV transmission in this region. Out of the 17 tribes living in the PIX, two - the Caiabi and the Txucarramãe - were chosen because both live in the North part of the Park, but have quite different ways of life. The overall prevalence of HBV serum markers was: HBsAg, 4.5%; anti-HBs, 39.6%; anti-HBc, 44.1%; any marker of HBV, 47.3%; and anti-HDV, 0.0%. However; a striking difference in the prevalence of hepatitis B markers was observed between the two tribes: younger Caiabi children were much less affected than the Txucarramãe ones. The prevalence of HBsAg in fertile women was 12%, being anti-HBe positive. Our data suggest that HBV infection is highly prevalent among Indian children living in this Indigenous Park and vertical infection is not an important route of transmission in either tribes.

  12. Direito à Educação no Brasil e dívida educacional: e se o povo cobrasse? Right to education in Brazil and the educational debt: what if the people actually demanded it?

    Alceu Ravanello Ferraro


    Full Text Available Inicia-se tratando do direito à Educação no quadro dos direitos fundamentais da pessoa humana e do conceito de dívida educacional que decorre da não-realização do direito público subjetivo de cada cidadão e cidadã à Educação Fundamental completa, conforme estabelecido na Constituição de 1988. Utilizando como parâmetro a informação censitária sobre o número de anos de estudo concluídos com aprovação levantados no Censo 2000, estima-se que, nesse ano, o Estado brasileiro devia, aos 119,6 milhões de pessoas de 15 anos ou mais, a astronômica cifra de 325,5 milhões de anos de estudo não realizados na idade própria - uma média de quase três anos por pessoa. São projetados também os investimentos necessários em termos de professores e salas de aula/turno-ano para o resgate da dívida. Mostra-se ainda que a dívida estimada com base na Pesquisa Nacional por Amostra de Domicílios 2005 (316,4 milhões de anos de estudo devidos representa uma diminuição muito pequena em relação ao Censo 2000. Por fim, aborda-se a questão dos atores ou agentes da efetividade do direito à Educação e dos instrumentos de exigibilidade que a legislação põe à disposição desses mesmos agentes. Conclui-se afirmando que está posto aí, para a sociedade em geral e para educadores e educadoras em particular, o grande desafio de despertar nas pessoas humildes a consciência de que elas efetivamente têm direito à Educação e de que dispõem de meios para cobrar do Estado esse direito.We start by considering the right to Education within the framework of the fundamental human rights, and the ensuing concept of educational debt, which follows from the failure to enforce the subjective public right of each citizen to a complete Fundamental Education as established by the 1988 Brazilian Constitution. Based on the 2000 census information on the number of years of schooling successfully concluded, we estimate that in that year the Brazilian State owed to the 119.6 million people aged fifteen years or more the astronomical sum of 325.5 million years of study not accomplished at their proper time - an average of almost three years per person. We also calculate the investment in terms of teachers and classrooms/shift-year necessary to settle this debt. We also show that the debt estimated from the National Survey by Household Sampling 2005 (316.4 million years of study represents a very small reduction with respect to the 2000 Census. Lastly, we deal with the question of the actors or agents of the effectiveness of the right to Education and of the instruments of accountability place at their disposal by the legislation. The article concludes by affirming the great challenge put before society in general and educators in particular of producing in the simple folk the awareness that they effectively have a right to Education, and that they have the means of demanding their fulfillment by the State.

Alvaro II, whose african name was Mpangu-a-Nimi Lukeni Lua Mvemba, and reigned from 1587 to 1618. Some notes are given through several examples of congolese embassies, one of them being composed by D. Garcia Baptista, charged of the affairs more closely related to the Philipine administration (D. Filipe II, and D. Antonio Manuel, the marquis of Vunta, whose destination was the Vatican, to meet the Pope. Both arrived in Portugal in the last quarter of 1605, after a long and troubled journey with a halt in Brazil. The fist one brought a long memorial that was submitted to a minute appreciation by the Council of India and by the viceroy of Portugal. Later he went back to Congo. The second met with the greatest difficulties on his voyage to Rome where he arrived very ill, on January the 3rd 1608 and died on the 5th, after transmitting to the Pope the essencial of his mission. He was entitled to a magnificent funeral and was buried in the church of Santa Maria Maior, where his tomb still exists as well as a bust in marble attributed to the school of Bernini. He was known among the romans as Nigrita.

  16. Distinction of synthetic dl-α-tocopherol from natural vitamin E (d-α-tocopherol) by reversed-phase liquid chromatography. Enhanced selectivity of a polymeric C18 stationary phase at low temperature and/or at high pressure.

    Yui, Yuko; Miyazaki, Shota; Ma, Yan; Ohira, Masayoshi; Fiehn, Oliver; Ikegami, Tohru; McCalley, David V; Tanaka, Nobuo


    Separation of diastereomers of dl-α-tocopherol was studied by reversed-phase liquid chromatography using three types of stationary phases, polymeric ODS, polymeric C30, and monomeric ODS. Polymeric ODS stationary phase (Inertsil ODS-P, 3mmID, 20cm) was effective for the separation of the isomers created by the presence of three chiral centers on the alkyl chain of synthetic dl-α-tocopherol. Considerable improvement of the separation of isomers was observed on ODS-P phase at high pressure and at low temperature. Complete separation of four pairs of diastereomers was achieved at 12.0°C, 536bar, while three peaks were observed when the separation was carried out either at 12.0°C at low pressure or at 20°C at 488bar. Higher temperature (30.0°C) with the ODS-P phase resulted in only partial separation of the diastereomers even at high pressure. Only slight resolution was observed for the mixture of diastereomers with the C30 stationary phase (Inertsil C30) at 12.0°C and 441bar, although the stationary phase afforded greater resolution for β- and γ-tocopherol than ODS-P. A monomeric C18 stationary phase did not show any separation at 12.0°C and 463bar. The results suggest that the binding site of the polymeric ODS-P phase is selective for flexible alkyl chains that provided the longest retention for the natural form, (R,R,R) form, and the enantiomer, (S,S,S) form, of dl-α-tocopherol.

    Felipe Dias Paiva


    Full Text Available This study analyzed the Capital Asset Pricing Model CAPM as well as the Downside Capital Asset Pricing Model D-CAPM and evaluated the latter as an efficient alternative asset pricing model. The returns of 40 companies on the São Paulo Stock Exchange BOVESPA were studied between December 1996 and August 2002. To test the models the study used as variables the Interbank Deposit Certificate CDI as a risk free asset and the Index of São Paulo Stock Exchange IBOVESPA as a proxy of the market portfolio. The D-CAPM was shown to be more useful in explaining the return of the stock market than the CAPM.O objetivo deste estudo é analisar o capital asset pricing model (CAPM e o downside capital asset pricing model (D-CAPM, bem como avaliar se este último modelo é uma eficiente alternativa de modelo de precificação de ativos.

METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, data were obtained from 267 elderly adults (160 women, 107 men with ages between 60 and 74 years, identified through a census in the area covered by the Family Health Program in Londrina, Brazil. The Mini Nutritional Assessment score < 24 points was used to identify nutritional deficit. Oral evaluation consisted of an oral exam, measurement of stimulated salivary flow rate, and use of the Geriatric Oral Health Assessment Index (GOHAI for self-perception data. Multivariate analyses were adjusted by sociodemographic variables, depression, and drug consumption. RESULTS: Nutritional deficit was identified in 58 adults (21.7%. Among the dental conditions studied, absence of posterior occlusion (Odds Ratio, OR: 2.18; Confidence Interval, 95% CI: 1.06 - 4.45, stimulated salivary flow rate < 0.7 ml/minute (OR: 2.18, 95% CI: 1.06 - 4.50, advanced periodontal illness (OR: 6.54; 95% CI: 2.03 - 21.00, and negative self perception of oral health (OR: 3.41; 95% CI: 1.59 - 7.33 were associated with nutritional deficit regardless of sex, age, social class, education, smoking, depression, and drug consumption. CONCLUSIONS: Oral health impairment was associated with nutritional deficit and it requires a greater integration between dentistry and nutrition in the health promotion of older adults, especially in the prevention of tooth loss and in the posterior occlusal rehabilitation to avoid obstacles for an adequate diet.

  1. Variação da fotossíntese e dos teores de carboidratos induzidos por etefom e déficit hídrico na fase de maturação da cana-de-açúcar

    Guilherme Garcia Roberto


    Full Text Available ResumoUm importante índice para a indústria sucroalcooleira é a produtividade de sacarose em cana-de-açúcar, que pode ser relacionada à capacidade da planta em acumular sacarose durante a maturação. Apesar de se conhecer a eficiência de tratamentos como a restrição hídrica e a aplicação de reguladores para estimular o acúmulo de sacarose nos colmos, pouco se conhece sobre as respostas fisiológicas da planta que levam à maturação. Nesse contexto, o objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar as respostas fisiológicas da cana-de-açúcar a diferentes tratamentos indutores de maturação e, assim, compreender melhor a fisiologia desse processo. Duas variedades, a IACSP95-5000, de alta produtividade, e a IACSP94-2094, de produtividade moderada, foram submetidas ao déficit hídrico, à aplicação de regulador químico (etefom 480 g ha–1 e aos dois tratamentos associados. Foram medidos o crescimento, a concentração de carboidratos em folhas e colmos e as trocas gasosas. Concluiu-se que o efeito do etefom em cana-de-açúcar é genótipo-dependente, estimulando o acúmulo de sacarose no colmo e o suprimento de fotoassimilados pela fonte na variedade responsiva (IACSP95-5000. Tais efeitos não são associados à restrição do crescimento. Em relação à aplicação dos tratamentos de déficit hídrico e etefom associados, a variedade responsiva apresenta aumento no teor de sacarose no colmo nos mesmos níveis apresentados quando apenas etefom é aplicado, de modo que os tratamentos não apresentam efeitos aditivos na maturação da cana-de-açúcar.

Para comparações foram examinados indivíduos, do sexo masculino, recrutados dentre os funcionários do próprio hospital. A alteração morfológica foi observada em 70/200 (35% dos alcoolistas, 45/100 (45% dos psicóticos e 8/50 (16% dos indivíduos controles. A diferença na prevalência do dedo em baioneta entre alcoolistas e psicóticos não foi significativa, mas o foi entre os alcoolistas ou psicóticos e o grupo controle. Estas observações sugerem, relativamente a população masculina, que: (1 o DHDA e síndromes correlatas estariam, por correlação com a prevalência dos dedos em baioneta, presentes em aproximadamente 1/3 dos alcoolistas e 1/2 dos pacientes com distúrbios psicóticos. (2 o DHDA e síndromes correlatas representariam um fator de vulnerabilidade para o alcoolismo. (3 adolescentes com dedos em baioneta deveriam merecer especial atenção no sentido de prevenção do alcoolismo.The prevalence of Bajonettfinger, a semiologic sign of attention-deficit disorder hyperactivity (ADHD, was determined in male alcoholics and psychotics from a psychiatric hospital. A control group was taken from the hospital staff. The morphologic alteration was observed in 35% of the 200 alcoholics, 45% of the 100 psychotics and 16% of the 50 controls. The difference in prevalence of the sign between the alcoholics and psychotics groups was not significant but the differences between any of these groups and the controls was significant. The observations suggested that: (1 ADHD would be present, as judged through its high correlation with the prevalence of bajonettfinger, in approximately 1/3 of the alcoholics and 1/2 of the psychotics; (2 ADHD would be a vulnerability factor for alcoholism; (3 adolescents with bajonettfinger should deserve special preventive attention with respect to alcoholism.

  14. Detailed Histologic Evaluation of Eosinophilic Esophagitis in Pediatric Patients Presenting with Dysphagia or Abdominal Pain and Comparison of the Histology between the Two Groups

    Thirumazhisai S. Gunasekaran


    Full Text Available EoE in children presents with four main symptoms. Most common symptoms exhibited by our clinic population are dysphagia (D and abdominal pain (AP. Despite similar treatments, we found in an earlier study that the outcomes between these two groups were different. Therefore, we investigated if there exist any histological differences between these groups that could further our knowledge of EoE. Aim. To compare esophageal histology in detail, apart from the eosinophil count, between EoE-D and EoE-AP. Method. Biopsies of patients with EoE-D and EoE-AP were reevaluated for 10 additional histological criteria, in addition to the eosinophil count. Results. Both groups had 67 patients; peak mean eosinophil was 33.9 and 31.55 for EoE-D and EoE-AP (p<0.05. Eosinophilic microabscesses, superficial layering of eosinophils, and epithelial desquamation were twice as common and significant in EoE-D group than EoE-AP. Eosinophil distribution around rete pegs was also significantly higher in EoE-D group. The remaining criteria were numerically higher in EoE-D, but not significant, with the exception of rete peg elongation. Conclusion. EoE-D patients have significantly higher eosinophils compared to EoE-AP, and the level of inflammation as seen from eosinophil microabscesses, superficial layering, desquamation, and the distribution around rete pegs is significantly higher.

    Gunasekaran, Thirumazhisai; Prabhakar, Gautham; Schwartz, Alan; Gorla, Kiranmai; Gupta, Sandeep; Berman, James


    Aim. Compare EoE-AP with EoE-D for clinical, endoscopy (EGD), histology and outcomes and also with FAP-N. Method. Symptoms, physical findings, EGD, histology, symptom scores, and treatments were recorded for the three groups. Cluster analysis was done. Results. Dysphagia and abdominal pain were different in numbers but not statistically significant between EoE-AP and EoE-D. EGD, linear furrows, white exudates were more in the EoE-D and both combined were significant (p < 0.05). EoE-D, peak and mean eosinophils (p  0.06) and eosinophilic micro abscesses (p  0.001) were higher. Follow-Up. Based on single symptom, EoE-AP had 30% (p  0.25) improvement, EoE-D 86% (p < 0.001) and similar with composite score (p  0.57 and <0.001, resp.). Patients who had follow-up, EGD: 42.8% with EoE-AP and 77.8% with EoE-D, showed single symptom improvement and the eosinophil count fell from 38.5/34.6 (peak and mean) to 31.2/30.4 (p  0.70) and from 43.6/40.8 to 25.2/22.8 (p < 0.001), respectively. FAP-N patients had similar symptom improvement like EoE-D. Cluster Analysis. EoE-AP and FAP-N were similar in clinical features and response to treatment, but EoE-D was distinctly different from EoE-AP and FAP-N. Conclusion. Our study demonstrates that EoE-AP and EoE-D have different histology and outcomes. In addition, EoE-AP has clinical features similar to the FAP-N group.

  20. Energy creation in electrical sparks and discharges

    Pappas, P.T.


    In this paper deficiencies of Lorentz force law, of Maxwell';s displacement current, of poynting vector, and of other explicit or implicit assumptions in E/D are analyzed. The infallible Cardinal law of E/D of Ampere is suggested as the most dominating candidate for the future E/D. Apparent difficulties of the Cardinal law are removed by resuming the ideal inertial frame concept to pragmatical cases. Energy creation is considered as not binding, but as possible, according to the Cardinal law as an alternative principle to the continuous creation hypothesis of Astronomy. Various inherent arc oscillations are presented as direct experimental evidence of energy creation. Several unexplained and exciting phenomena in E/D are readily explained by the Cardinal law. Finally, the unique constructive property of the Cardinal law is presented, suggested to be responsible for the Cosmos' creation and constructive evolution to higher forms of organization

  7. The influence of chemical degradation during dietary exposures to fish on biomagnification factors and bioaccumulation factors.

    Arnot, Jon A; Mackay, Donald


    The chemical dietary absorption efficiency (E D ) quantifies the amount of chemical absorbed by an organism relative to the amount of chemical an organism is exposed to following ingestion. In particular, E D can influence the extent of bioaccumulation and biomagnification for hydrophobic chemicals. A new E D model is developed to quantify chemical process rates in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT). The new model is calibrated with critically evaluated measured E D values (n = 250) for 80 hydrophobic persistent chemicals. The new E D model is subsequently used to estimate chemical reaction rate constants (k R ) assumed to occur in the lumen of the GIT from experimental dietary exposure tests (n = 255) for 165 chemicals. The new k R estimates are corroborated with k R estimates for the same chemicals from the same data derived previously by other methods. The roles of k R and the biotransformation rate constant (k B ) on biomagnification factors (BMFs) determined under laboratory test conditions and on BMFs and bioaccumulation factors (BAFs) in the environment are examined with the new model. In this regard, differences in lab and field BMFs are highlighted. Recommendations to address uncertainty in E D and k R data are provided.

  8. Aspects of U-duality in matrix theory

    Blau, M.; O'Loughlin, M.


    We explore various aspects of implementing the full M-theory U-duality group E d+1 , and thus Lorentz invariance, in the finite N matrix theory (DLCQ of M-theory) describing toroidal IIA-compactifications on d-tori: (1) We generalize the analysis of Elitzur et al. (hep-th/9707217) from E d to E d+1 and identify the highest weight states unifying the momentum and flux E d -multiplets into one E d+1 -orbit, (2) We identify the new symmetries, in particular the Weyl group symmetry associated to the (d+1)'th node of the E d+1 Dynkin diagram, with Nahm-duality-like symmetries (N-duality) exchanging the rank N of the matrix theory gauge group with other (electric, magnetic, ...) quantum numbers. (3) We describe the action of N-duality on BPS bound states, thus making testable predictions for the Lorentz invariance of matrix theory. (4) We discuss the problems that arise in the matrix theory limit for BPS states with no top-dimensional branes, i.e. configurations with N = 0. (5) We show that N-duality maps the matrix theory SYM picture to the matrix string picture and argue that, for d even, the latter should be thought of as an M-theory membrane description (which appears to be well defined even for d > 5). (6) We find a compact and unified expression for a U-duality invariant of E d+1 for all d and show that in d = 5,6 it reduces to the black hole entropy cubic E 6 - and quartic E 7 -invariants respectively. (7) Finally, we describe some of the solitonic states in d = 6,7 and give an example (a 'rolled-up' Taub-NUT 6-brane) of a configuration exhibiting the unusual 1/g 3 s -behaviour. (author)

  9. Cloning, Site-Directed Mutagenesis, and Functional Analysis of Active Residues in Lymantria dispar Chitinase.

    Fan, Xiao-Jun; Yang, Chun; Zhang, Chang; Ren, Hui; Zhang, Jian-Dong


    Chitinases are glycosyl hydrolases that catalyze the hydrolysis of β-(1,4)-glycosidic bonds in chitin, the major structural polysaccharide presented in the cuticle and gut peritrophic matrix of insects. Two aspartate residues (D143, D145) and one tryptophan (W146) in the Lymantria dispar chitinase are highly conserved residues observed within the second conserved motif of the family 18 chitinase catalytic region. In this study, a chitinase cDNA, LdCht5, was cloned from L. dispar, and the roles of the three residues were investigated using site-directed mutagenesis and substituting them with three other amino acids. Seven mutant proteins, D143E, D145E, W146G, D143E/D145E, D143E/W146G, D145E/W146G, and D143E/D145E/W146G, as well as the wild-type enzyme, were produced using the baculovirus-insect cell line expression system. The enzymatic and kinetic properties of these mutant enzymes were measured using the oligosaccharide substrate MU-(GlcNAc) 3 . Among the seven mutants, the D145E, D143E/D145E, and D145E/W146G mutations kept some extant catalytic activity toward MU-(GlcNAc) 3 , while the D143E, W146G, D143E/W146G, and D143E/D145E/W146G mutant enzymes were inactivated. Compared with the mutant enzymes, the wild-type enzyme had higher values of k cat and k cat / K m . A study of the multiple point mutations in the second conserved catalytic region would help to elucidate the role of the critical residues and their relationships.

  10. A YAC contig and an EST map in the pericentromeric region of chromosome 13 surrounding the loci for neurosensory nonsyndromic deafness (DFNB1 and DFNA3) and Limb-Girdle muscular dystrophy type 2C (LGMD2C)

    Guilford, P.; Crozet, F.; Blanchard, S. [Institut Pasteur, Paris (France)] [and others


    Two forms of inherited childhood nonsyndromic deafness (DFNB1 and DFNA3) and a Duchenne-like form of progressive muscular dystrophy (LGMD2C) have been mapped to the pericentromeric region of chromosome 13. To clone the genes responsible for these diseases we constructed a yeast artificial chromosome (YAC) contig spanning an 8-cM region between the polymorphic markers D13S221. The contig comprises 24 sequence-tagged sites, among which 15 were newly obtained. This contig allowed us to order the polymorphic markers centromere- D13S175-D13S141-D13S143-D13S115-AFM128yc1-D13S292-D13S283-AFM323vh5-D13S221-telomere. Eight expressed sequence tags, previously assigned to 13q11-q12 (D13S182E, D13S183E, D13S502E, D13S504E, D13S505E, D13S837E, TUBA2, ATP1AL1), were localized on the YAC contig. YAC screening of a cDNA library derived from mouse cochlea allowed us to identify an {alpha}-tubulin gene (TUBA2) that was subsequently precisely mapped within the candidate region. 36 refs., 2 figs., 2 tabs.

  11. Probing α-particle wave functions using (rvec d,α) reactions

    Crosson, E.R.; Lemieux, S.K.; Ludwig, E.J.; Thompson, W.J.; Bisenberger, M.; Hertenberger, R.; Hofer, D.; Kader, H.; Schiemenz, P.; Graw, G.; Eiro, A.M.; Santos, F.D.


    Wave functions of the α particle corresponding to different S- and D-state deuteron-deuteron overlaps, left-angle dd|α right-angle, were investigated using exact finite-range distorted-wave Born-approximation (DWBA) analyses of (rvec d,α) reactions. Cross sections, vector, and tensor-analyzing powers were measured for (rvec d,α) reactions populating the lowest J π =7 + state in 56 Co at bombarding energies E d of 16 and 22 MeV, the lowest 7 + state in 48 Sc at E d =16 MeV, and the lowest 7 + state in 46 Sc at E d =22 MeV. We find that DWBA analyses of tensor-analyzing powers produce satisfactory agreement with the data and that A xx is especially sensitive to the D-state component of α-particle wave functions generated by different realistic nucleon-nucleon interactions

  12. Development of a personalized dosimetric tool for radiation protection in case of internal contamination and targeted radiotherapy in nuclear medicine

    Chiavassa, S.


    Current internal dosimetric estimations are based on the M.I.R.D. formalism and used standard mathematical models. These standard models are often far from a given patient morphology and do not allow to perform patient-specific dosimetry. The aim of this study was to develop a personalized dosimetric tool, which takes into account real patient morphology, composition and densities. This tool, called O.E.D.I.P.E., a French acronym of Tool for the Evaluation of Personalized Internal Dose, is a user-friendly graphical interface. O.E.D.I.P.E. allows to create voxel-based patient-specific geometries and associates them with the M.C.N.P.X. Monte Carlo code. Radionuclide distribution and absorbed dose calculation can be performed at the organ and voxel scale. O.E.D.I.P.E. can be used in nuclear medicine for targeted radiotherapy and in radiation protection in case of internal contamination. (author)

  13. Target fabrication using laser and spark erosion machining

    Clement, X.; Coudeville, A.; Eyharts, P.; Perrine , J.P.; Rouillard, R.


    Lasers and E.D.M. (electrical discharge machining) are both extremely useful tools for machining the small targets needed in inertial confinement studies. Lasers are currently used in a wide range of target problems and it appears that E.D.M. has a still wider range of applications for plane and spherical targets. The problems of material deformation and tool breaking are practically eliminated as the electrode and the machined part are not in mechanical contact. In comparison with laser micromachining E.D.M. offers: larger versatility with the possibility of new developments and applications; higher production speed for thin conducting materials; lower initial and operating costs; the processes are well controlled, reproducible and can be easily automated; the operation is safe without the dangers associted with lasers

    Processing of the precise experimental data on transition frequencies and energy levels in the ground electronic state of the H 35 Cl molecule was carried out on the basis of the asymptotically correct perturbation series analytically constructed to describe the discrete vibrational-rotational spectrum of a diatomic molecule. The perturbation series was shown to converge rapidly up to the dissociation energy E D , whereas the conventional Dunham series has a distinct limit of applicability equal to 0.39E D . 12 refs., 2 figs

  2. Remote experiment participation on Tore-Supra

    Theis, J.-M.; Larsen, J.-M.


    The DRFC has traditionally had a very large external collaboration involvement. In particular, 15% of the DRFC work is directed towards the JET programme. As a consequence substantial telecommunications facilities have been installed [F.E.D. 60/3 (2002) 449; F.E.D. 60/3 (2002) 459]. A specific station for remote communication has been set up in the Tore-Supra control room, closely coupled to a collaborating team at INRS Que., Canada. This paper describes our pilot experience with the Canadian participation, which gives details of the communication and data sharing tools used to fully work on Tore-Supra

  3. Electric power: liberalization in half-measure

    Pradel, P.


    The European directive about the electric power liberalization concerns only big consumers. These manufacturers have privileged relations with E.D.F. for long years with a very attractive price for the kilowatt hour. The change should not be very important, only more transparency in accounts and change in tariffs of power transmission: for example, a small electric power producer will be authorized to contest the buying price that E.D.F. imposes to him to transport the energy he produces.

    A simple diffraction experiment was designed using banana stem as natural grating. Coherent beams of lasers with wavelengths of 632.8 nm and 532 nm that pass through banana stem produce periodic diffraction patterns on a screen. The diffraction experiments were able to measure the distances between the slit of the banana stem, i.e. d = (28.76 ±…

The relevance of this to the construction of lattice theories is discussed. (author)

  3. Temperature-dependent photoluminescence analysis of ZnO nanowire array annealed in air

    Sun, Yanan; Gu, Xiuquan; Zhao, Yulong; Wang, Linmeng; Qiang, Yinghuai


    ZnO nanowire arrays (NWAs) were prepared on transparent conducting fluorine doped tin oxide (FTO) substrates through a facile hydrothermal method, followed by a 500 °C annealing to improve their crystalline qualities and photoelectrochemical (PEC) activities. It was found that the annealing didn't change the morphology, but resulted in a significant reduction of the donor concentration. Temperature-dependent photoluminescence (PL) was carried out for a comprehensive analysis of the effect from annealing. Noteworthy, four dominant peaks were identified from the 10 K spectrum of a 500 °C annealed sample, and they were assigned to FX, D0X, (e, D0) and (e, D0) -1LO, respectively. Of them, the FX emission was only existed below 130 K, while the room-temperature (RT) PL spectrum was dominated by the D0X emission.

  4. Electronic structure of ClAlPc/pentacene/ITO interfaces studied by using soft X-ray spectroscopy

    Cho, Sangwan; Lee, Sangho; Kim, Minsoo; Heo, Nari; Lee, Geunjeong; Smith, Kevin E.


    The interfacial electronic structure of a bilayer of chloroaluminum phthalocyanine (ClAlPc) and pentacene grown on indium tin oxide (ITO) has been studied using synchrotron-radiation-excited photoelectron spectroscopy. The energy difference between the highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) level of the pentacene layer and the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) level of the ClAlPc layer (E D HOMO - E A LUMO ) was determined and compared with that of C 60 / pentacene bilayers. The E D HOMO - E A LUMO of a heterojunction with ClAlPc was found to be 1.3 eV while that with C 60 was 0.9 eV. This difference is discussed in terms of the difference in the ionization energy of each acceptor materials. We also obtained the complete energy level diagrams of both ClAlPc/pentacene/ITO and C 60 /pentacene/ITO.

  5. The trace formula and the distribution of eigenvalues of Schroedinger operators on manifolds all of whose geodesics are closed

    Schubert, R.


    We investigate the behaviour of the remainder term R(E) in the Weyl formula {nvertical stroke E n ≤E}=Vol(M).E d/2 /[(4π) d/2 Γ(d/2+1)]+R(E) for the eigenvalues E n of a Schroedinger operator on a d-dimensional compact Riemannian manifold all of whose geodesics are closed. We show that R(E) is of the form E (d-1)/2 Θ(√E), where Θ(x) is an almost periodic function of Besicovitch class B 2 which has a limit distribution whose density is a box-shaped function. Furthermore we derive a trace formula and study higher order terms in the asymptotics of the coefficients related to the periodic orbits. The periodicity of the geodesic flow leads to a very simple structure of the trace formula which is the reason why the limit distribution can be computed explicitly. (orig.)

  6. Deuterium permeation and diffusion in high-purity beryllium

    Abramov, E.; Riehm, M.P.; Thompson, D.A.; Smeltzer, W.W.


    The permeation rate of deuterium through high-purity beryllium membranes was measured using the gas-driven permeation technique. The time-dependent and the steady-state deuterium flux data were analyzed and the effective diffusivities of the samples were determined. Using multilayer permeation theory the effects of surface oxide were eliminated and the diffusion coefficients of the bulk beryllium determined. The diffusion parameters obtained for the extra-grade beryllium samples (99.8%) are D 0 =6.7x10 -9 m 2 /s and E D =28.4 kJ/mol. For the high-grade beryllium samples (99%) the parameters are D 0 =8.0x10 -9 m 2 /s and E D =35.1 kJ/mol. (orig.)

  8. Einstein-Dirac theory in spin maximum I

    Crumeyrolle, A.


    An unitary Einstein-Dirac theory, first in spin maximum 1, is constructed. An original feature of this article is that it is written without any tetrapod technics; basic notions and existence conditions for spinor structures on pseudo-Riemannian fibre bundles are only used. A coupling gravitation-electromagnetic field is pointed out, in the geometric setting of the tangent bundle over space-time. Generalized Maxwell equations for inductive media in presence of gravitational field are obtained. Enlarged Einstein-Schroedinger theory, gives a particular case of this E.D. theory. E. S. theory is a truncated E.D. theory in spin maximum 1. A close relation between torsion-vector and Schroedinger's potential exists and nullity of torsion-vector has a spinor meaning. Finally the Petiau-Duffin-Kemmer theory is incorporated in this geometric setting [fr

  14. Measurement of the electron--deuteron elastic scattering cross section in the range 0.8 less than or equal to q2 less than or equal to 6 GeV2

    Arnold, R.G.; Chertok, B.T.; Dally, E.B.; Grigorian, A.; Jordan, C.L.; Schuetz, W.P.; Zdarko, R.; Martin, F.; Mecking, B.A.


    Preliminary results of elastic eD scattering at large momentum transfer performed at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center using two high resolution spectrometers in coincidence are reported. The deuteron structure function A(q 2 ) is deduced at 9 values of q 2 from a comparison of elastic eD and eP coincident yields and the world's eP cross sections. These measurements extend the range of q 2 by 4.5 over previous work, and in this new range A(q 2 ) is observed to approach 1/q 20 momentum dependence. Results are in sharp disagreement with the meson exchange calculations, and they are in rough agreement with the nonrelativistic potential models, and they are in agreement with the predictions of the quark dimensional scaling model which pictures the deuteron as a bound state of 6 quarks at large momentum transfer

  15. The dismantling of nuclear installations

    Lacoste, A.C.; Duthe, M.; Mignon, H.; Lambert, F.; Pradel, Ph.; Hillewaere, J.P.; Dupre la Tour, St.; Mandil, C.; Weil, L.; Eickelpasch, N.; Finsterwalder, L.


    for nuclear installations, the dismantling is an important part of their exploitation. The technology of dismantling is existing and to get a benefit from the radioactive decay, it seems more easy for operating company such E.D.F. to wait for fifty years before dismantling. But in order to get the knowledge of this operation, the Safety Authority wanted to devote this issue of 'Controle'to the dismantling method. This issue includes: the legal aspects, the risks assessment, the dismantling policy at E.D.F., the site of Brennilis (first French experience of dismantling), the dismantling techniques, the first dismantling of a fuel reprocessing plant, comparison with classical installations, economic aspect, some German experiences, the cleansing of the american site of Handford.

  16. Experimental and analytical studies on waterhammer generated by the closing of check valves

    Huet, J.L.; Garcia, J.L.; Coppolani, P.; Ziegler, B.


    A double-guillotine rupture on a water line upstream from a check valve generates a severe transient between the check valve and the pressure vessel on the downstream side. Successively following phenomena occur: - decrease then reversal of the flow, - closing of the check valve with impact of the plug on its seat, - waterhammer propagating in the pipe downstream from the check valve. The COMMISARIAT A L'ENERGIE ATOMIQUE (C.E.A.) FRAMATOME and ELECTRICITE DE FRANCE (E.D.F.) have undertaken a joint program in order to: - investigate the behavior uf the check valve in the event of a sudden closure, - evaluate the pressure and flow transient in the line. The program includes: - full scale tests in two loops, CLAUDIA (C.E.A.) and ECLAIR (E.D.F.), - analytical studies in order to qualify the calculation codes. This paper describes the experimental program and presents the analysis results for a benchmark test

  17. Fractal and chaotic laws on seismic dissipated energy in an energy system of engineering structures

    Cui, Yu-Hong; Nie, Yong-An; Yan, Zong-Da; Wu, Guo-You


    Fractal and chaotic laws of engineering structures are discussed in this paper, it means that the intrinsic essences and laws on dynamic systems which are made from seismic dissipated energy intensity E d and intensity of seismic dissipated energy moment I e are analyzed. Based on the intrinsic characters of chaotic and fractal dynamic system of E d and I e, three kinds of approximate dynamic models are rebuilt one by one: index autoregressive model, threshold autoregressive model and local-approximate autoregressive model. The innate laws, essences and systematic error of evolutional behavior I e are explained over all, the short-term behavior predictability and long-term behavior probability of which are analyzed in the end. That may be valuable for earthquake-resistant theory and analysis method in practical engineering structures.

  18. Self-consistent equilibrium in a cylindrical, dissipative reverse field pinch

    Guo, S.C.; Paccagnella, R.


    One of the authors (C.L.S.) recently proposed a dissipative model to self-consistently solve the equilibrium problem in a free-boundary plasma column under cylindrical symmetry. In the present paper, on one hand the problem is strongly specialized to circular symmetry and to Ohm's and Fourier's laws without off-diagonal contributions; on the other hand, it is generalized by adding a dynamo effective electric field E d in Ohm's law, based on the standard turbulent model. This seems appropriate enough to study RFP equilibria, since it is well known that a stationary and cylindrically symmetric RFP is incompatible with a classical Ohm's law. Reasonably, only numerical solutions are expected to be accessible in general; but the further simplified problem with scalar and constant electric resistivity and constant dynamo coefficient α (E d =αB) can be solved analytically by elementary means.

  19. Mitochondrial oxidative enzyme activity in individual fibre types in hypo- and hyperthyroid rat skeletal muscles.

    Johnson, M A; Turnbull, D M


    Quantitative cytochemical and biochemical techniques have been used in combination to study the response of mitochondrial oxidative enzymes in individual muscle fibre types to hypo- and hyperthyroidism. Hypothyroidism resulted in decreased activity of succinate dehydrogenase (SDH), L-glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (L-GPDH), and D-3-hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase (D-HBDH) in all fibre types of both slow-twitch soleus and fast-twitch extensor digitorum longus (e.d.l.) muscles. In hyperthyroidism, only L-GPDH activity increased in e.d.l. but more marked increases were seen in soleus muscles, which also showed increased SDH activity. In addition to these alterations in the enzyme activity in individual fibre types the metabolic profile of the muscle is further modified by the hormone-induced interconversion of slow- to fast-twitch fibres and vice versa.

    The aim of this paper is to present principles and means set up by Electricite de France (E.D.F.) to provide the required tailor-made training. Today, recent advantages in computing capacities and software engineering along with the completion of Research and Development Training Division programs in the reactor safety (R+D) field (CATHARE, BETHSY..) give E.D.F. the opportunity to conceive and operate new tools for training which are described in the paper: RTGV-SEPIA: a simulator devoted to self training in SGTR field, thanks to a powerful expert system. SIPA: a 'generator of simulators' aiming at control and engineering studies and training, provided with a software able to give in real time a relevant description of complex topologies with diphasic flow patterns (up to a 12'' break in the primary coolant system of a reactor).

  1. SEEDi1.0-3.0 strategies for major noncommunicable diseases in China.

    Hu, Chun-Song; Tkebuchava, Tengiz


    The purpose of this article is to briefly introduce the status and challenges of major noncommunicable diseases (mNCDs), which include cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer, as well as related risk factors, such as environmental pollution, smoking, obesity and sleep disorders. "S-E-E-D" rules or the strategies of "S-E-E-D" intervention (SEEDi) consist of four core healthy elements: sleep, emotion, exercise and diet. The history of SEEDi 1.0-3.0 is also introduced, which includes versions 1.0, 1.5, 2.0 and 3.0 of the program. These guidelines are suitable for prevention and control of mNCDs. Not only the "Healthy China" initiated in China's "13th Five-year Plan," but also the "Healthy World" philosophy needs SEEDi 1.0-3.0 strategies for control of mNCDs.

  2. Fermi hyper-netted chain theory on a lattice: The Hubbard model

    Wang, X.Q.; Wang, X.Q.G.; Fantoni, S.; Tosatti, E.; Yu Lu.


    We review a new lattice version of Fermi Hyper-Netted Chain method for the study of strongly interacting electrons. The ordinary paramagnetic and the spin density wave functions have been correlated with Jastrow-type and e-d correlations, and the corresponding FHNC equations for the pair distribution function, the one body density matrix and the staggered magnetization are discussed. Results for the 1D chain and 2D square lattice models are presented and compared with the available results obtained within Quantum Monte Carlo, variational Monte Carlo and exact diagonalization of a 4x4 Hubbard cluster. Particularly interesting are the strong effects of e-d correlations on E/Nt and on the momentum distribution as well as antiferromagnetic behavior away from half filling found in our FHNC calculations in agreement with other studies.

    Full text: The module for measuring two-dimensional ΔE-E - spectra has been designed and manufactured. It was developed for transformation of the spectrometric signals from the spectrometric line of a ΔE-E - telescope and transferring the numerical information as a two-dimensional matrix of events to the leading PC. The functional circuit of the arrangement operates as follows. The input signals from the spectrometric lines of the ΔE- and E- detectors are fixed by the relevant peak detectors, which exits are connected with the analog - digital converters (ADC0-16, ADC1 - 16). With the signal 'strobe' the transformation of the captured input amplitude to the numeric code is yielded synchronously in both channels. These values ('E' and 'dE') determine the indexes of a matrix (such as MATRIX [E, dE] ++), and addition of '1' to the array value is fulfilled. Process is prolonged during a preset time of measuring. Change of the indexes of arrays under the exterior indication is possible as: MATRIX [E+dE, dE]; MATRIX [(E+dE/2), dE/2]; The resolution of transformation is possible to be equal 256 or 512 channels that is defined by program. The arrangement contains also the counter of the amount of strobe pulses and counters of exterior events. For acceleration of transferring the data array to the leading computer the interface of 'USB2.0' type with microcontroller C8051F321 - GM is implemented. The software for it has been written on 'C ' ' language in the united system keil μVision3. For the main computer the software has been written in system Builder 6 ('C++' language). Given software is written as an application of WINDOWS XP, for the assignment of parameters of measuring and activation of the arrangement and other guidance

Above all, I want to argue that all this avoidance of thought is a Good Thing.

  3. The processing of positional information in a two-item sequence limits the emergence of symmetry in baboons (Papio papio), but not in humans (Homo sapiens).

    Fagot, Joël; Malassis, Raphaelle; Medam, Tiphaine


    When trained to associate Stimulus A to Stimulus B, humans can derive the untrained symmetrical B to A relation while nonhuman animals have much more difficulties. Urcuioli (2008, Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior, 90, 257--282; 2015, Conductal, 3, 4--25) proposed that the apparent difficulty of animals in symmetry testing reflects their double encoding of the information on the stimuli (identity and relation) and their positional (i.e., spatial and temporal/ordinal) characteristics. This comparative study tested the emergence of symmetry in humans and baboons in a task in which the position of the stimuli was manipulated independently of their relation. Humans and baboons initially learned to associate pairs of visual shapes on a touch screen in a specific order. Three pairs of (A-B, C-D, and E-F) stimuli were used in training. After training, the two species were tested with the B-A, F-C, and E-D pairs. The B-A pairs preserved the association initially learned with A-B but reversed the positional information relative to training. The F-C pair neither preserved the association nor the positional information of the training pairs, and positional information were the only cues preserved in the E-D pair. Humans showed a response time advantage for B-A, suggesting symmetry, but also for E-D, suggesting that they also process positional information. In baboons, the advantage was found only for E-D, suggesting that they only process positional information. These results confirm that the processing of stimulus pairs differ between nonhuman animals to humans.

  7. Detector for magnetic monopoles at OPAL

    Pinfold, J.L.; Kinoshita, K.; Lorazo, B.; Regimbald, M.


    We describe two indepent methods, employed in the OPAL experiment at LEP, for detection of magnetic monopoles and other highly ionizing particles. The first employs passive track-recording plastic detectors incorporated into the apparatus. The second utilizes thed dE/dX measurement capability of the OPAL JET chamber in association with a dedicated trigger. In addition, energetic particles carrying magnetic charge can be identified by the trajectory in the OPAL magnetic field. (orig.)

  8. Studies of the spin-isospin response of the nuclear continuum using intermediate energy hadrons. Final technical report, May 20, 1987--April 30, 1994


    For the most part the work supported by this grant has involved study of the spin, isospin, and multipole content of the continuum of nuclei. Most of the work has used polarized (p,p') or (d,d') reactions, measuring spin observables to infer properties of the target nuclei. In addition some work has been done using the (p,nx) reaction to study the Δ excitation region of the continuum. Publications resulting from this work have included seventeen refereed articles and letters, seventeen abstracts and conference talks, three of which were invited. Experiments included: 12 C(p,p), E=318 MeV; 48 Ca(p,p), E=318 MeV; 40 Ca(p,p), E=800 MeV; 208 Pb(p,p), E=200 MeV; H, 12 C(n,p); 40 Ca(p,p), E=580 MeV; 208 Pb(p,p), E=200 MeV; 12 C(d,d), E d =400 MeV; 40 Ca(p,p), E=500 MeV; 12 C(p,p), E=800 MeV; 40 Ca(d,d), E d =400 MeV; 40 Ca(p,p), E p =318 MeV; 208 Pb(p,p), E p =200 MeV; 12 C(d,d), E d =400 MeV; 2 H, 12 C(p,nπ), E p =800 MeV; 12 C(d,d), E d =600 MeV

  3. Fidelity induced distance measures for quantum states

    Ma Zhihao; Zhang Fulin; Chen Jingling


    Fidelity plays an important role in quantum information theory. In this Letter, we introduce new metric of quantum states induced by fidelity, and connect it with the well-known trace metric, Sine metric and Bures metric for the qubit case. The metric character is also presented for the qudit (i.e., d-dimensional system) case. The CPT contractive property and joint convex property of the metric are also studied.

  4. Absence of isotope effect of diffusion in a metallic glass

    Heesemann, A.; Raetzke, K.; Faupel, F.; Hoffmann, J.; Heinemann, K.


    The isotope effect E = d ln(D)/d ln (1/√m) of Co diffusion in structurally relaxed Co 86 Zr 14 and Co 81 Zr 19 glasses has been measured by means of a radiotracer technique. Within experimental accuracy no isotope effect was detected (E < 0.04). This suggests a highly cooperative diffusion mechanism. The connection between diffusion and collective low-frequency relaxations in glasses is discussed. (orig.)

    Barker, L.


    This is a description of a flash ADC system built for the Mark II experiment at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC). This system was designed for use in the experiment's vertex chamber where signals could occur over a relatively long time, approximately 10 microseconds. This long time, coupled with fast cable amplifiers, necessitated an alternate design approach than was used with a dE/dX FASTBUS flash ADC design. 1 ref., 6 figs.

  13. EMC effect, antishadowing, and pointlike configurations in nucleons

    Strikman, M.I.; Frankfurt, L.L.


    Antishadowing of valence-quark distributions in a nucleus is estimated for small x. It is shown that the probability of pointlike configurations is suppressed in a bound nucleon. The possible relation of these phenomena to the EMC effect is discussed. Experiments are proposed to search for pointlike configurations in hadrons. Indications are obtained of the existence of an effect analogous to the EMC effect for x>0.3 in near-threshold eD scattering studied at SLAC

  7. Lévy flight with absorption: A model for diffusing diffusivity with long tails

    Jain, Rohit; Sebastian, K. L.


    We consider diffusion of a particle in rearranging environment, so that the diffusivity of the particle is a stochastic function of time. In our previous model of "diffusing diffusivity" [Jain and Sebastian, J. Phys. Chem. B 120, 3988 (2016), 10.1021/acs.jpcb.6b01527], it was shown that the mean square displacement of particle remains Fickian, i.e., ∝T at all times, but the probability distribution of particle displacement is not Gaussian at all times. It is exponential at short times and crosses over to become Gaussian only in a large time limit in the case where the distribution of D in that model has a steady state limit which is exponential, i.e., πe(D ) ˜e-D /D0 . In the present study, we model the diffusivity of a particle as a Lévy flight process so that D has a power-law tailed distribution, viz., πe(D ) ˜D-1 -α with 0 <α <1 . We find that in the short time limit, the width of displacement distribution is proportional to √{T }, implying that the diffusion is Fickian. But for long times, the width is proportional to T1 /2 α which is a characteristic of anomalous diffusion. The distribution function for the displacement of the particle is found to be a symmetric stable distribution with a stability index 2 α which preserves its shape at all times.

  8. First-principles study of point-defect production in Si and SiC

    Windl, W.; Lenosky, T.J.; Kress, J.D.; Voter, A.F.


    The authors have calculated the displacement-threshold energy E(d) for point-defect production in Si and SiC using empirical potentials, tight-binding, and first-principles methods. They show that -- depending on the knock-on direction -- 64-atom simulation cells can be sufficient to allow a nearly finite-size-effect-free calculation, thus making the use of first-principles methods possible. They use molecular dynamics (MD) techniques and propose the use of a sudden approximation which agrees reasonably well with the MD results for selected directions and which allows estimates of Ed without employing an MD simulation and the use of computationally demanding first-principles methods. Comparing the results with experiment, the authors find the full self-consistent first-principles method in conjunction with the sudden approximation to be a reliable and easy method to predict E d . Furthermore, they have examined the temperature dependence of E d for C in SiC and found it to be negligible

  9. Thermoreflectance characterization of beta-Ga2O3 thin-film nanostrips.

    Ho, Ching-Hwa; Tseng, Chiao-Yeh; Tien, Li-Chia


    Nanostructure of beta-Ga(2)O(3) is wide-band-gap material with white-light-emission function because of its abundance in gap states. In this study, the gap states and near-band-edge transitions in beta-Ga(2)O(3) nanostrips have been characterized using temperature-dependent thermoreflectance (TR) measurements in the temperature range between 30 and 320 K. Photoluminescence (PL) measurements were carried to identify the gap-state transitions in the beta-Ga(2)O(3) nanostrips. Experimental analysis of the TR spectra revealed that the direct gap (E(0)) of beta-Ga(2)O(3) is 4.656 eV at 300 K. There are a lot of gap-state and near-band-edge (GSNBE) transitions denoted as E(D3), E(W1), E(W2), E(W3), E(D2), EDBex, E(DB), E(D1), E(0), and E(0)' can be detected in the TR and PL spectra at 30 K. Transition origins for the GSNBE features in the beta-Ga(2)O(3) nanostrips are respectively evaluated. Temperature dependences of transition energies of the GSNBE transitions in the beta-Ga(2)O(3) nanostrips are analyzed. The probable band scheme for the GSNBE transitions in the beta-Ga(2)O(3) nanostrips is constructed.

  10. Monolithically integrated enhancement/depletion-mode AlGaN/GaN HEMT D flip-flop using fluorine plasma treatment

    Xie Yuanbin; Quan Si; Ma Xiaohua; Zhang Jincheng; Li Qingmin; Hao Yue


    Depletion-mode and enhancement-mode AlGaN/GaN HEMTs using fluorine plasma treatment were integrated on one wafer. Direct-coupled FET logic circuits, such as an E/D HEMT inverter, NAND gate and D flip-flop, were fabricated on an AlGaN/GaN heterostructure. The D flip-flop and NAND gate are demonstrated in a GaN system for the first time. The dual-gate AlGaN/GaN E-HEMT substitutes two single-gate E-HEMTs for simplifying the NAND gate and shrinking the area, integrating with a conventional AlGaN/GaN D-HEMT and demonstrating a NAND gate. E/D-mode D flip-flop was fabricated by integrating the inverters and the NAND gate on the AlGaN/GaN heterostructure. At a supply voltage of 2 V, the E/D inverter shows an output logic swing of 1.7 V, a logic-low noise margin of 0.49 V and a logic-high noise margin of 0.83 V. The NAND gate and D flip-flop showed correct logic function demonstrating promising potential for GaN-based digital ICs. (semiconductor integrated circuits)

  11. Caixa é dívida negativa sob a perspectiva de hedging no Brasil?

    Marcio Telles Portal


    Full Text Available O presente estudo investigou se as companhias brasileiras de capital aberto, entre 1995 e 2008, coordenam as políticas de caixa e dívida para efeitos de hedging contra subinvestimento em condições de restrição financeira. Os resultados indicam a inexistência de um componente de hedging usando, simultaneamente, as políticas de caixa e dívida em companhias restritas. Foi observada para as companhias restritas financeiramente uma sensibilidade positiva do caixa ao fluxo de caixa e sensibilidade negativa da dívida ao fluxo de caixa, independentemente da necessidade de hedging. As companhias irrestritas não apresentaram uma sensibilidade do caixa ao fluxo de caixa significante estatisticamente, mas apresentaram sensibilidade negativa da dívida ao fluxo de caixa, resultados também independentes da necessidade de hedging. As evidências contrariam os resultados encontrados por Acharya, Almeida e Campello (2007 no mercado norte-americano, onde caixa e dívida negativa apresentaram de acordo com a necessidade de hedging diferentes papéis na otimização intertemporal dos investimentos em companhias restritas.

  13. Investigation of correlations in nuclei with the (e,e'X) reaction

    Ent, R.


    In this thesis (e,e'd) experiments on 4 He, 6 Li and 12 C, and also a first (e,e'α) experiment on 6 LI are described. The aim of these experiments is twofold: to study the mechanism of (e,e'X) reactions and to extract useful spectroscopic information, i.e. the probability to find a cluster inside a nucleus and the cluster bound-state wave function, from these experiments. Ch. 2 contains a description of the 6 Li(e,e'd) 4 He reaction. The α-d momentum distribution in the ground state of 6 Li has been measured in parallel kinematics in the momentum range 0 m 6 Li. The results agree with the predictions of a three-body αNN model of 6 Li. Ch. 3 deals with deuteron formation in the reaction 12 C(e,e'd) 1O Be. The lowest T=1 state in 1O Be is found to be as strongly excited as the T=0 ground state, although the transition to the T=1 state is isospin forbidden for direct deuteron knockout. The data could consistently be explained by a mechanism of integration of a p-n pair in a relative T=1 state into a deuteron. In ch. 4 the mechanism of the 4 He(e,e'd) 2 H reaction is considered. The cross section for this reaction has been measured as a function of the four-momentum transfer at a missing momentum of 125 MeV/c. The data show that this reaction cannot be described as a quasielastic knockout of the deuteron. The data are compared with a microscopic calculation of the cross section for a direct knockout reaction. Ch. 5 gives an extensive review of all three (e,e'd) experiments. The model of an electron-induced cluster knockout process is discussed in a quasi elastic and a semi-microscopic approach. This description is compared with the data to test the reaction mechanism and the possibility to extract nuclear structure information. In ch. 7 the 6 Li(e,e'α) reaction is considered. This reaction was measured with a special detector, described in Ch. 6. (H.W.). 175 refs.; 32 figs.; 2 tabs

  14. Calculating the acidity of silanols and related oxyacids in aqueous solution

    Tossell, John A.; Sahai, Nita


    Ab initio molecular orbital theory was used to calculate deprotonation energies and enthalpies (ΔE d, ΔH d) of oxyacid monomers and oligomers. Results were interpreted with reference to current phenomenological models for estimating metal-oxide surface acidities. The ultimate goal is to predict surface acidities using the ab initio method. We evaluated contributions to ΔE d and ΔH d from the electrostatic potential at the proton, electronic relaxation, geometric relaxation, solvation, and polymerization for the neutral-charge gas-phase molecules H 2O, CH 3OH, HCOOH, SiH 3OH, Si(OH) 4, Si 2O 7H 6, H 3PO 4, P 2O 7H 4, H 2SO 3, H 2SO 4, HOCl, HClO 4, Ge(OH) 4, As(OH) 3, and AsO(OH) 3. ΔE d, gas calculated at the modest 6-31G∗ HF of theory level correlates well with experimental pK a in solution, because hydration enthalpies for the acid anions (ΔH hyd, A-) are closely proportional to ΔE d, gas. That is, anion interaction energies with water in aqueous solution and with H + in the gas phase are closely correlated. Correction for differential hydration between an acid and its conjugate base permits generalization of the ΔE d, gas - pK a correlation to deprotonation reactions involving charged acids. Thus, stable protonated, neutral, and deprotonated species Si(OH) 3(OH 2) 1+, Si(OH) 40, Si(OH) 3O 1-, and Si(OH) 2O 22- have been characterized, and solution pK a's for Si(OH) 3(OH 2) 1+ and Si(OH) 3O 1- were estimated, assuming that the charged species (Si(OH) 3(OH 2) 1+, Si(OH) 3O -1) fit into the same ΔE d, gas - pK a correlation as do the neutral acids. The correlation yields a negative pK a (˜ -5) for Si(OH) 3(OH 2) +1. Calculated ΔE d, gas also correlates well with the degree of O under-bonding evaluated using Brown's bond-length based approach. ΔE d, gas increases along the series HClO 4 - Si(OH) 4 mainly because of increasingly negative potential at the site of the proton, not because of differing electronic or geometric relaxation energies. Thus, pK a

  15. Epimeria of the Southern Ocean with notes on their relatives (Crustacea, Amphipoda, Eusiroidea

    Cédric d'Udekem d'Acoz


    Full Text Available The present monograph includes general systematic considerations on the family Epimeriidae, a revision of the genus Epimeria Costa in Hope, 1851 in the Southern Ocean, and a shorter account on putatively related eusiroid taxa occurring in Antarctic and sub-Antarctic seas. The former epimeriid genera Actinacanthus Stebbing, 1888 and Paramphithoe Bruzelius, 1859 are transferred to other families, respectively to the Acanthonotozomellidae Coleman & J.L. Barnard, 1991 and the herein re-established Paramphithoidae G.O. Sars, 1883, so that only Epimeria and Uschakoviella Gurjanova, 1955 are retained within the Epimeriidae Boeck, 1871. The genera Apherusa Walker, 1891 and Halirages Boeck, 1891, which are phylogenetically close to Paramphithoe, are also transferred to the Paramphithoidae. The validity of the suborder Senticaudata Lowry & Myers, 2013, which conflicts with traditional and recent concepts of Eusiroidea Stebbing, 1888, is questioned. Eight subgenera are recognized for Antarctic and sub-Antarctic species of the genus Epimeria: Drakepimeria subgen. nov., Epimeriella K.H. Barnard, 1930, Hoplepimeria subgen. nov., Laevepimeria subgen. nov., Metepimeria Schellenberg, 1931, Pseudepimeria Chevreux, 1912, Subepimeria Bellan-Santini, 1972 and Urepimeria subgen. nov. The type subgenus Epimeria, as currently defined, does not occur in the Southern Ocean. Drakepimeria species are superficially similar to the type species of the genus Epimeria: E. cornigera (Fabricius, 1779, but they are phylogenetically unrelated and substantial morphological differences are obvious at a finer level. Twenty-seven new Antarctic Epimeria species are described herein: Epimeria (Drakepimeria acanthochelon subgen. et sp. nov., E. (D. anguloce subgen. et sp. nov., E.

  16. Radon generation and transport in and around a gold mine tailings dam in South Africa

    Speelman, W.J.; Lindsay, R.; Newman, R.T.; Meijer, R.J. de


    Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (N.O.R.M.) occurs in most soil and rock, and by mining and mineral processing, some of the radionuclides are significantly enhanced. An in-situ gamma-ray detector called M.E.D.U.S.A., has been used to produce a map of relative activity concentrations in a gold mine tailings dam on the Witwatersrand in South Africa. A CsI(Na) scintillation detector is used in this system. M.E.D.U.S.A. spectra obtained from the survey were analyzed using the Full-Spectrum Analysis (F.S.A.) procedure to compute the 40 K, 238 U and 232 Th activity concentrations. The activity concentrations are used with global positioning data (G.P.S.) to produce the concentration maps. A hyper-pure germanium gamma-ray detector (Hp Ge) was used to measure gamma-rays from the naturally occurring nuclides for soil samples taken at different points on the site to calibrate the M.E.D.U.S.A. system. Radon soil gas measurements were performed at certain points on the mine tailings with a continuous radon monitor; R.A.D.7, and emanation coefficients were measured with electret technology. These parameters have been combined with the activity concentrations to obtain an average radon exhalation rate of about 0.1 Bq.m -2 .s -1 (with an uncertainty of about 20%) from the tailings dam. The purpose of the study is to also review and develop a mathematical model for radon activity concentration predictions in gold mine dumps. (authors)

  17. An emergency preparedness system the french project ecran

    Biscay, P.; Michelin, J.M.; Moussafir, J.


    Electricite de France (E.D.F) has developed the prototype of a new emergency preparedness system. The prototype system, called E.C.R.A.N. (Estimation des Consequences Radiologiques d'un Accident Nucleaire), includes: (1) - A local computerized system which collects meteorological data, stack exit data, and radiological data on the plant site, and receives the meteorological forecast data. All the data are gathered in a database with includes topography and digitized maps of the area. This dedicated workstation provides real-time computation of actual or forecast consequences up to 10 Km within 10 minutes. (2) - A central system, based on E.D.F. large scientific mainframe computers, where the heavier meteorological computations required for regional scale assessment (several hundreds of km) are carried out. At this level, we use the HERMES mesoscale model, nested on larger scale forecasts. This central system is connected by specialized lines to the French Meteorological Office's computing center, which delivers twice a day an operational 48 hours large scale forecast (grid size about 35 km). (3) - A communication network (E.D.F. computer network) which allows fast and reliable access to data and results for every group involved in the decision process. A prototype for the local system, which is a UNIX workstation, has been operating on the Cruas power plant (Rhone Valley in the South-East of France) since September 1987. A portable software package called ADSO was developed to integrate the numerical models in real time, and to build site-independent, machine-independent and sensor-independent databases. This paper describes the general structure of this system, the models it uses, its present state of development, the possible improvements and its future use in EDF operational emergency organization

  18. Upregulation of adipose 11-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 expression in ovariectomized rats is due to obesity rather than lack of estrogen.

    Paulsen, Søren K; Nielsen, Maria P; Richelsen, Bjørn; Bruun, Jens M; Flyvbjerg, Allan; Pedersen, Steen B


    Increased tissue activity of cortisol induced by the activation of inert cortisone to active cortisol through 11-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11beta-HSD1) may play a role in the metabolic syndrome. We recently found that 11beta-HSD1 in subcutaneous adipose tissue (AT) was lower in lean women compared with lean men. Estrogen suppresses hepatic and renal 11beta-HSD1 in rats; hence we investigated the in vitro effect of estrogen on human and rat AT, and the in vivo effects on rat AT 11beta-HSD1 expression. Wistar rats were divided into four groups of eight animals. One group was sham-operated (controls) and others were ovariectomized (OVX). One OVX group was left untreated (OVX-E), another (OVX+E) received estrogen treatment, and one received a hypo-caloric diet (OVX-E+D), matching the weight gain of the control group. AT from women undergoing liposuction or surgery and from killed male and female rats were incubated with estrogen alone or in the presence of IL-1beta. Gene expressions were determined by real-time reverse transcriptase PCR. Ovariectomy resulted in a 280% increase in adipose 11beta-HSD1 expression P < 0.05). 11beta-HSD1 expression in the (OVX+E)-group was significantly reduced compared with the nonsubstituted group (P < 0.05). 11beta-HSD1 expression in the (OVX-E+D)-group was reduced significantly (P < 0.05) when compared with the level of the estrogen-substituted group. No significant differences between the control group, the (OVX+E)-group, and the (OVX-E+D)-group were found. In the in vitro studies, no direct effect of estrogen on adipose 11beta-HSD1 was found. The upregulation of 11beta-HSD1 in ovariectomized rats was most likely due to changes in body composition rather than lack of estrogen.

Para o estágio larval, foram testadas as seguintes dietas: D1, original, com 10 g de ágar; D2, modificada, com 3,6 g de ágar; e, D3, modificada, com bagaço seco de cana-de-açúcar. Para os adultos, foram testadas quatro dietas: A, levedura de cerveja + mel (2:1; B, açúcar refinado + extrato de levedura + gérmen de trigo cru (3:1:1; C, extrato de soja + açúcar mascavo + gérmen de trigo cru (3:1:1; e D, levedura seca de cervejaria + mel (2:1. Avaliaram-se os parâmetros biológicos de duração do período ovo-pupa, duração e viabilidade do estágio de pupa, massa média de pupas, razão sexual e duração e viabilidade do período ovo-adulto. O desenvolvimento larval em D1 e D2 foi semelhante e indicou que a criação de larvas pode ser realizada com 1/3 da quantidade de ágar da utilizada em D1. A utilização do bagaço seco de cana-de-açúcar, na dieta artificial, afetou negativamente o desenvolvimento larval. As dietas artificiais com levedura de cerveja + mel e com açúcar refinado + extrato de levedura + gérmen de trigo cru são as mais adequadas para a criação de adultos.

  1. Characterisation of radiation damage in perovskite using high angular resolution electron channeling x-ray spectroscopy (HARECXS)

    Smith, K.L.; Zaluzec, N.J.


    Full text: Predicting and/or modelling the occurrence of radiation damage induced defects and their effects on physical properties (eg. amorphisation induced swelling, electrical conductivity., optical response etc.) in ceramic phases requires knowledge of the displacement energies, E d , of cations and anions in those phases. In this study, High Angular Resolution Electron Channelling X-ray Spectroscopy (HARECXS) spectra were collected from perovskite (CaTiO 3 ) samples that had been exposed to high-energy electrons or high-energy heavy ions. Calculations based on experimental data were then used to indicate the E d of the cations in perovskite. The HARECXS measurements were conducted on a Philips EM 420T AEM (LaB6 source, operated at 120 kV) fitted with an EDAX ultra thin window Si(Li) detector. The specimen was first manually oriented to an appropriate zone axis. Then control of the relative orientation of the incident probe was accomplished via direct computer control of the beam tilt coils, Typical acquisition times for a complete two-dimensional scan were 18-24 hours, while one dimensional scans ranged from 1-5 hours. Our experiments established that: a) HARECXS can detect radiation damage in perovskite caused by either high energy heavy ions or high energy electrons, b) the HARECXS signature of perovskite shows a systematic change with ion dose, c) HARECXS detects damage in perovskite that has been irradiated with 900kV electrons and does not detect damage in perovskite that has been irradiated with 620kV electrons, indicating the existance of an electron irradiation damage threshold. Calculations based on the latter results indicate that the displacement energy, E d of calcium and titanium in perovskite lie between 50 and 85eV.

  9. Application of voxelised numerical phantoms linked to the M.C.N.P. Monte Carlo code to the realistic measurement in vivo of actinides in the lungs and contaminated wounds

    Noelle, P.


    In vivo lung counting, one of the preferred methods for monitoring people exposed to the risk of actinide inhalation, is nevertheless limited by the use of physical calibration phantoms which, for technical reasons, can only provide a rough representation of human tissue. A new approach to in vivo measurements has been developed to take advantage of advances in medical imaging and computing; this consists of numerical phantoms based on tomographic images (CT) or magnetic resonance images (R.M.I.) combined with Monte Carlo computing techniques. Under laboratory implementation of this innovative method using specific software called O.E.D.I.P.E., the main thrust of this thesis was to provide answers to the following question: what do numerical phantoms and new techniques like O.E.D.I.P.E. contribute to the improvement in calibration of low-energy in vivo counting systems? After a few developments of the O.E.D.I.P.E. interface, the numerical method was validated for systems composed of four germanium detectors, the most widespread configuration in radio bioassay laboratories (a good match was found, with less than 10% variation). This study represents the first step towards a person-specific numerical calibration of counting systems, which will improve assessment of the activity retained. A second stage focusing on an exhaustive evaluation of uncertainties encountered in in vivo lung counting was possible thanks to the approach offered by the previously-validated O.E.D.I.P.E. software. It was shown that the uncertainties suggested by experiments in a previous study were underestimated, notably morphological differences between the physical phantom and the measured person. Some improvements in the measurement procedure were then proposed, particularly new bio-metric equations specific to French measurement configurations that allow a more sensible choice of the calibration phantom, directly assessing the thickness of the torso plate to be added to the Livermore phantom

  11. Moderate energy ions for high energy density physics experiments

    Grisham, L.R.


    This paper gives the results of a preliminary exploration of whether moderate energy ions (≅0.3-3 MeV/amu) could be useful as modest-cost drivers for high energy density physics experiments. It is found that if the target thickness is chosen so that the ion beam enters and then leaves the target in the vicinity of the peak of the dE/dX (stopping power) curve, high uniformity of energy deposition may be achievable while also maximizing the amount of energy per beam particle deposited within the target

Be(OH){sub 2} is first precipitated in the presence of E.D.T.A.; the main contaminants are then fixed on Dowex 1 x 10 in 12 M HCl and on Dowex 1 x 8 in a 3 M HCl (20 per cent)-isopropanol (80 per cent) (vol/vol) mixture. The Be, which is not fixed, is precipitated by NH{sub 4}H{sub 2}PO{sub 4} in the presence of E.D.T.A., ignited as Be{sub 2}P{sub 2}O{sub 7}, filtered, weighed, and analyzed by gamma spectrometry.

  13. X-Band Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Comparison of Mononuclear Mn(IV)-oxo and Mn(IV)-hydroxo Complexes and Quantum Chemical Investigation of Mn(IV) Zero-Field Splitting.

    Leto, Domenick F; Massie, Allyssa A; Colmer, Hannah E; Jackson, Timothy A


    X-band electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy was used to probe the ground-state electronic structures of mononuclear Mn(IV) complexes [Mn(IV)(OH)2(Me2EBC)](2+) and [Mn(IV)(O)(OH)(Me2EBC)](+). These compounds are known to effect C-H bond oxidation reactions by a hydrogen-atom transfer mechanism. They provide an ideal system for comparing Mn(IV)-hydroxo versus Mn(IV)-oxo motifs, as they differ by only a proton. Simulations of 5 K EPR data, along with analysis of variable-temperature EPR signal intensities, allowed for the estimation of ground-state zero-field splitting (ZFS) and (55)Mn hyperfine parameters for both complexes. From this analysis, it was concluded that the Mn(IV)-oxo complex [Mn(IV)(O)(OH)(Me2EBC)](+) has an axial ZFS parameter D (D = +1.2(0.4) cm(-1)) and rhombicity (E/D = 0.22(1)) perturbed relative to the Mn(IV)-hydroxo analogue [Mn(IV)(OH)2(Me2EBC)](2+) (|D| = 0.75(0.25) cm(-1); E/D = 0.15(2)), although the complexes have similar (55)Mn values (a = 7.7 and 7.5 mT, respectively). The ZFS parameters for [Mn(IV)(OH)2(Me2EBC)](2+) were compared with values obtained previously through variable-temperature, variable-field magnetic circular dichroism (VTVH MCD) experiments. While the VTVH MCD analysis can provide a reasonable estimate of the magnitude of D, the E/D values were poorly defined. Using the ZFS parameters reported for these complexes and five other mononuclear Mn(IV) complexes, we employed coupled-perturbed density functional theory (CP-DFT) and complete active space self-consistent field (CASSCF) calculations with second-order n-electron valence-state perturbation theory (NEVPT2) correction, to compare the ability of these two quantum chemical methods for reproducing experimental ZFS parameters for Mn(IV) centers. The CP-DFT approach was found to provide reasonably acceptable values for D, whereas the CASSCF/NEVPT2 method fared worse, considerably overestimating the magnitude of D in several cases. Both methods were poor in

  19. On the size and temperature dependence of the energy gap in cadmium-selenide quantum dots embedded in fluorophosphate glasses

    Lipatova, Zh. O., E-mail:; Kolobkova, E. V.; Babkina, A. N.; Nikonorov, N. V. [ITMO University (Russian Federation)


    The temperature and size dependences of the energy gap in CdSe quantum dots with diameters of 2.4, 4.0, and 5.2 nm embedded in fluorophosphate glasses are investigated. It is shown that the temperature coefficient of the band gap dE{sub g}/dT in the quantum dots differs from the bulk value and depends strictly on the dot size. It is found that, furthermore, the energy of each transition in these quantum dots is characterized by an individual temperature coefficient dE/dT.

    Marcaillou, J.; Haond, H.


    The recent evolution of primary energy supplies places those countries having a nuclear industry in an exporting role. Exporting countries have generally developed a limited number of national reactor types and attempt to extend their manufacture with as few changes as possible. The E.D.F. in France is implementing an important PWR 900 MW program based on FRAMATOME nuclear reactors, initially conceived by WESTINGHOUSE. Such standardization poses certain problems for the importing countries. These problems and ways in which they can be solved are discussed [fr

  11. Application of voxelised numerical phantoms linked to the M.C.N.P. Monte Carlo code to the realistic measurement in vivo of actinides in the lungs and contaminated wounds; Application des fantomes numeriques voxelises associes au code Monte Carlo MCNP a la mesure in vivo realiste des actinides dans les poumons et les plaies contaminees

    Noelle, P


    In vivo lung counting, one of the preferred methods for monitoring people exposed to the risk of actinide inhalation, is nevertheless limited by the use of physical calibration phantoms which, for technical reasons, can only provide a rough representation of human tissue. A new approach to in vivo measurements has been developed to take advantage of advances in medical imaging and computing; this consists of numerical phantoms based on tomographic images (CT) or magnetic resonance images (R.M.I.) combined with Monte Carlo computing techniques. Under laboratory implementation of this innovative method using specific software called O.E.D.I.P.E., the main thrust of this thesis was to provide answers to the following question: what do numerical phantoms and new techniques like O.E.D.I.P.E. contribute to the improvement in calibration of low-energy in vivo counting systems? After a few developments of the O.E.D.I.P.E. interface, the numerical method was validated for systems composed of four germanium detectors, the most widespread configuration in radio bioassay laboratories (a good match was found, with less than 10% variation). This study represents the first step towards a person-specific numerical calibration of counting systems, which will improve assessment of the activity retained. A second stage focusing on an exhaustive evaluation of uncertainties encountered in in vivo lung counting was possible thanks to the approach offered by the previously-validated O.E.D.I.P.E. software. It was shown that the uncertainties suggested by experiments in a previous study were underestimated, notably morphological differences between the physical phantom and the measured person. Some improvements in the measurement procedure were then proposed, particularly new bio-metric equations specific to French measurement configurations that allow a more sensible choice of the calibration phantom, directly assessing the thickness of the torso plate to be added to the Livermore phantom

  13. Three-dimensional cranio-facial computed tomography

    Pozzi Muccelli, R.; Stagul, F.; Pozzi Muccelli, F.; Zuiani, C.; Smathers, R.


    Computed tomography allows today to reconstruct three-dimensional (eD) images fram axial scans. The authors report their experience in cranio-facial pathology achived in two Departments of Radiology (University of Trieste, Italy and University of Standford, California). 3D images have been realized using two different softwares, one of which allows to reconstruct both soft tissue and bone structures. The application in maxillo-facial traumas, cranio-facial malformations and head tumours are disscussed. 3D images turned out to be very useful for the optimal visualization and for the spatial demostration of the lesion and have potential applications in cranio-facial surgery and radiotherapy

  2. Determination of Gravitational Counterterms Near Four Dimensions from RG Equations

    Hamada, Ken-ji


    The finiteness condition of renormalization gives a restriction on the form of the gravitational action. By reconsidering the Hathrell's RG equations for massless QED in curved space, we determine the gravitational counterterms and the conformal anomalies as well near four dimensions. As conjectured for conformal couplings in 1970s, we show that at all orders of the perturbation they can be combined into two forms only: the square of the Weyl tensor in $D$ dimensions and $E_D=G_4 +(D-4)\\chi(D...

    Marczuk, K.; Ziemba, B.


    The curves of the isothermal glass bleaching kinetics of various conditions of exciting radiation are presented. Different values of radiation power, time of irradiation and temperature of samples were applied. analysis of the relaxation curves made it possible to distinguish three exponential components of the bleaching process with different time constants. For each component the relaxation coefficient has been determined. Basing on temperature dependence of the relaxation coefficients for the isothermal glass bleaching the activation energy for slow (E D = 0.46 eV) and fast (E K = 0.13 eV) colour centre decay process have been determined.

    Jirlow, K; Johansson, E


    The resonance activation integral of gold has been determined, by means of cadmium ratio measurements of thin foils in a neutron beam. Comparison was made with a 1/v detector, and the neutron spectra were measured with a chopper. The resonance integral, RI, is defined as {integral}{sub 0.5}{sup {infinity}}{sigma}{sub r}(E)dE/E, where {sigma}{sub r}(E) is the differenc between the total absorption cross section and the 1/v part. An experimental value of 1490 {+-} 40 barns has been obtained. RI has also been computed from resonance parameter data with the result 1529 {+-} 70 barns.

    The recently commissioned Recoil Mass Spectrometer (RMS) at the Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility (HRIBF) is described. Consisting of a momentum separator followed by an E-D-E Rochester-type mass spectrometer, the RMS is the centerpiece of the nuclear structure endstation at the HRIBF. Designed to transport ions with rigidities near K=100, the RMS has acceptances of ±10% in energy and ±4.9% in mass-to-charge ratio. Recent experimental results are used to illustrate the detection capabilities of the RMS, which is compatible with many detectors and devices

  12. $2^\\infty$-Selmer groups, $2^\\infty$-class groups, and Goldfeld's conjecture

    Smith, Alexander


    We prove that the $2^\\infty$-class groups of the imaginary quadratic fields have the distribution predicted by the Cohen-Lenstra heuristic. Given an elliptic curve E/Q with full rational 2-torsion and no rational cyclic subgroup of order four, we analogously prove that the $2^\\infty$-Selmer groups of the quadratic twists of E have distribution as predicted by Delaunay's heuristic. In particular, among the twists E^d with |d| < N, the number of curves with rank at least two is $o(N)$.

    Kawabata, T; Akimune, H; Fujita, H; Fujita, Y; Fujiwara, M; Hara, K; Hatanaka, K; Itoh, M; Kanada-En'yo, Y; Kishi, S; Nakanishi, K; Sakaguchi, H; Shimbara, Y; Tamii, A; Terashima, S; Uchida, M; Wakasa, T; Yasuda, Y; Yoshida, H P; Yosoi, M


    The cluster structures of the excited states in 11 B are studied by analyzing the isoscalar monopole and quadrupole strengths in the 11 B(d, d') reaction at E d = 200 MeV. The excitation strengths are compared with the theoretical predictions by the antisymmetrized molecular-dynamics (AMD) calculations. It is found that the large monopole strength for the 3/2 - 3 state at E x = 8.56 MeV is well described by the AMD wave function with a dilute 2α + tcluster structure

  1. Spin-isospin excitation in sd-shell nuclei studied by the (d,2He) reaction at Ed=270MeV

    Niizeki, T.; Ohnuma, H.; Yamamoto, T.; Katoh, K.; Yamashita, T.; Hara, Y.; Okamura, H.; Sakai, H.; Ishida, S.; Sakamoto, N.; Otsu, H.; Wakasa, T.; Uesaka, T.; Satou, Y.; Fujita, T.; Ichihara, T.; Orihara, H.; Toyokawa, H.; Hatanaka, K.; Kato, S.; Kubono, S.; Yosoi, M.


    The (d, 2 He) reactions on 24 Mg, 26 Mg and 28 Si were studied at E d =270MeV. The 0 cross sections obtained for the 1 + states from the 24 Mg, 28 Si(d, 2 He) reactions show a good correlation with those from the mirror (p,n) reactions. Four peaks were identified in the 26 Mg(d, 2 He) 26 Ne reaction as being due to the 1 + excitation. The B(GT + ) values for these transitions were estimated and compared with the shell model prediction. ((orig.))

  15. Anti-neutrino disintegration of the deuteron

    Mueller, W.; Gari, M.; Max-Planck-Institut fuer Chemie


    The anti-neutrino disintegration of the deuteron (anti ν + D → anti ν + n + p and anti νsub(e) + D → + e + + n + n) is calculated using realistic two-body states. Meson-exchange currents are considered in the one-boson-exchange limit. The results are discussed as corrections to the cross sections obtained in effective range approximations. It is shown that the ratio of the cross sections (sigma - /sigma 0 ) for reactor antineutrinos is practically independent of the nuclear physics uncertainties. (orig.)

  1. On the existence of n-dimensional indecomposable vector bundles

    Tan Xiaojiang.


    Let X be an arbitrary smooth irreducible complex projective curve of genus g with g ≥ 4. In this paper we extend the existence theorem of special divisors to high dimensional indecomposable vector bundles. We give a necessary and sufficient condition on the existence of n-dimensional indecomposable vector bundles E with deg(E) = d, dimH 0 (X,E) ≥ h. We also determine under what condition the set of all such vector bundles will be finite and how many elements it contains. (author). 9 refs

  4. Mössbauer and X-ray investigation of model compounds for the P460 center of hydroxylamine oxidoreductase from nitrosomonas

    Bill, E.; Gismelseed, A.; Laroque, D.; Trautwein, A. X.; Nasri, H.; Fischer, J.; Weiss, R.


    The divalent high-spin iron in the P460 center of hydroxylamine oxidoreductase and in three possible “picket fence” heme models exhibit extremely large quadrupole splittings (˜4 mms-1). Their isomer shifts of about 1 mms-1 are consistent with the X-ray results of two of the models, i.e. that Fe(II) is pentacoordinated. The coordination geometry of iron deviates considerably from the common fourfold symmetry of the “picket fence” porphyrin due to a CH3CO{2/-} ligand. This feature is also reflected by the significant anisotropies of g-factors, A tensor and rhombicity E/D.

    We discuss the definition of velocity as dE/d vertical bar p vertical bar, where E, p are the energy and momentum of a particle, in doubly special relativity (DSR). If this definition matches dx/dt appropriate for the space-time sector, then space-time can in principle be built consistently with the existence of an invariant length scale. We show that, within different possible velocity definitions, a space-time compatible with momentum-space DSR principles cannot be derived

    Burlon, Alejandro; Kreiner, Andres J.; White, S.; Blackburn, B.; Gierga, David; Yanch, Jacquelyn C.


    The use of the 13 C(d,n) 14 N reaction at E d =1.5 MeV for accelerator-based boron neutron capture therapy is investigated. The 13 C(d,n) 14 N reaction presents the advantages of carbon as a target material and its large cross section. The deuteron beam was produced by a tandem accelerator at MIT's Laboratory for Accelerator Beam Applications. The resulting neutron spectra were evaluated in terms of RBE-dose rates at different depths inside a water-filled brain phantom using a heavy water moderator and lead reflector assembly. All results were simulated using the code MCNP. (author)

    This work presents a search for three rare/forbidden neutral charm decays, D 0 → μe, D 0 → μμ, and D 0 → ee. This study was based on data collected in Experiment E789 at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory using 800 GeV/c proton-gold interactions. Two statistical analyses are presented, one with background subtraction and the other without background subtraction. No evidence is found for any of the decays and the following upper limits are presented at the 90% confidence level

    Computed tomography allows today to reconstruct three-dimensional (eD) images fram axial scans. The authors report their experience in cranio-facial pathology achived in two Departments of Radiology (University of Trieste, Italy and University of Standford, California). 3D images have been realized using two different softwares, one of which allows to reconstruct both soft tissue and bone structures. The application in maxillo-facial traumas, cranio-facial malformations and head tumours are disscussed. 3D images turned out to be very useful for the optimal visualization and for the spatial demostration of the lesion and have potential applications in cranio-facial surgery and radiotherapy.

  18. Trophic transfer of Cd from duckweed (Lemna minor L.) to tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus).

    Xue, Yan; Peijnenburg, Willie J G M; Huang, Jin; Wang, Dengjun; Jin, Yan


    The transfer of the toxic heavy metal Cd from duckweed (Lemna minor L.) to the freshwater fish tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus) was investigated. Concentrations of Cd in different chemical forms in duckweed and in different tissues (gut, edible muscle, and remnants or residual) of tilapia (i.e., ethanol-extractable fraction [F E ], HCl-extractable fraction [F HCl ], and residual fraction [F R ]) were quantified, and the bioaccumulation factors (BAFs) of Cd in the tilapia body were calculated. Simple linear regression analysis was used to unravel the correlation and accumulation mechanisms of Cd along the short food chain. Our results showed that with increasing exposure concentrations of Cd (0-50 μM for duckweed and 0-10 μM for tilapia), the total, F E (F e,d )-, F HCl (F h,d )-, and F R (F r,d )-Cd concentrations in duckweed and different tissues of tilapia increased progressively. The Cd sources (aqueous or dietary) influenced the BAF for Cd accumulation in the whole body of tilapia. Furthermore, regression analyses yielded significant positive correlations (R 2 > 0.96) between the Cd concentration in duckweed and in both the 3 parts and the whole body of tilapia. This finding suggests that Cd transfer from duckweed to tilapia can be quantitatively evaluated when tilapia is exposed only to duckweed. In addition, the linear regression between Cd accumulation in whole tilapia and F e,d -, F h,d -, and F r,d -Cd showed that particularly the correlation with F e,d -Cd is statistically significant (p < 0.001). The accumulated Cd concentrations and chemical forms in tilapia tissues also positively correlated with Cd sources (solution or duckweed). Compared with waterborne exposure only, duckweed especially increased the accumulation of Cd in the gut of tilapia. Taken together, our findings support a strong dependence of Cd accumulation and transfer from duckweed to tilapia on its chemical forms, especially on F e,d -Cd. This knowledge may expedite more

  19. Numerical study of cesium effects on negative ion production in volume H-and D- ion sources

    Fukumasa, Osamu; Niitani, Eiji; Yoshino, Kyougo


    We present the results of model calculation on H - /D - isotope effects in the tandem volume source. The model includes the surface production due to cesium injection. On the electron density n e dependence of H - /D - production, we have observed an interesting phenomena. Namely D - production, i.e D - density, is higher than H - production in low n e , but in high n e H - production is higher than D - production. The atomic density plays an important role in the density inversion between H - and D - ions. (author)

    E.D.X.R.F (Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence) has long been used for quantitative analysis of many types of samples including environment samples. the software package AXIL (Analysis of x-ray spectra by iterative least quares) is extensively used for the spectra analysis and the quantification of x-ray spectra. It includes several methods of quantitative schemes for evaluating element concentrations. We present the general theory behind each scheme implemented into the software package. The spectra of the performance of each of these quantitative schemes. We have also investigated their performance relative to the uncertainties in the experimental parameters and sample description

  1. CDCC calculations with the Lagrange-mesh technique

    Druet, T.; Baye, D.; Descouvemont, P.; Sparenberg, J.-M.


    We apply the Lagrange-mesh technique to the Continuum Discretized Coupled Channel (CDCC) theory. The CDCC equations are solved with the R-matrix method, using Lagrange functions as variational basis. The choice of Lagrange functions is shown to be efficient and accurate for elastic scattering as well as for breakup reactions. We describe the general formalism for two-body projectiles, and apply it to the d+ 58 Ni collision at E d =80 MeV. Various numerical and physical aspects are discussed. Benchmark calculations on elastic scattering and breakup are presented.

    Os Transtornos do Espectro Autista (TEA) são um grupo de condições caracterizadas pelo início, na primeira infância de atrasos e déficits no desenvolvimento das habilidades sociais, comunicativas e comportamentais. A terminologia TEA remete a ideia de um espectro de síndromes com características em comum e compõem o Transtorno Autista, o Transtorno Global do Desenvolvimento Sem Outra Especificação e a Síndrome de Asperger (LAMPREIA, 2003). Prejuízos na Cognição Social são um dos aspectos marc...

  3. Maniement des médicaments en néonatologie

    BOUSKHOURI, Wissem; KHEDIM, Naziha


    Les essais cliniques permettent de tester l'efficacité et la toxicité des médicaments et de mettre ainsi au point des médicaments adaptés aux nouveau-nés en termes de posologie et de forme galénique. Mais pour cette population particulière, continuellement en maturation, leur réalisation est compliquée d'un point de vue éthique mais surtout peu rentable pour les firmes pharmaceutiques. Les soignants doivent ainsi utiliser les médicaments disponibles pour l'adulte, qui bien souv...

    The process developed in collaboration with the C.N.R.S. has reached the industrial stage. The transport by optical fibre beam has been perfected and allows to work from a distance of 20 m from the source. Demonstration has been made with a laser of a 500 watt power which allows a 5 to 10 m 2 /hour etching efficiency. This process is in the course of qualification in collaboration with the different organisations: C.E.A., COGEMA and E.D.F. This qualification concerns 25 different materials and zircaloy fuel claddings. (author)

  7. Three-body cluster state in 11B

    Kawabata, T.; Akimune, H.; Fujita, H.; Fujita, Y.; Fujiwara, M.; Hara, K.; Hatanaka, K.; Itoh, M.; Kanada-En'yo, Y.; Kishi, S.; Nakanishi, K.; Sakaguchi, H.; Shimbara, Y.; Tamii, A.; Terashima, S.; Uchida, M.; Wakasa, T.; Yasuda, Y.; Yoshida, H.P.; Yosoi, M.


    The cluster structures of the excited states in 11 B are studied by analyzing the isoscalar monopole and quadrupole strengths in the 11 B(d,d ' ) reaction at E d =200 MeV. The excitation strengths are compared with the predictions by the shell-model and antisymmetrized molecular-dynamics (AMD) calculations. It is found that the large monopole strength for the 3/2 3 - state at E x =8.56 MeV is well described by the AMD calculation and is an evidence for a developed three-body 2α+t cluster structure

  10. Effects of mutagenesis of aspartic acid residues in the putative phosphoribosyl diphosphate binding site of Escherichia coli phosphoribosyl diphosphate synthetase on metal ion specificity and ribose-5-phosphate binding

    Willemoës, Martin; Nilsson, Dan; Hove-Jensen, Bjarne


    The three conserved aspartic acid residues of the 5-phospho-d-ribosyl a-1-diphosphate binding site (213-GRDCVLVDDMIDTGGT-228) of Escherichia coli phosphoribosyl diphosphate synthetase were studied by analysis of the mutant enzymes D220E, D220F, D221A, D224A, and D224S. The mutant enzymes showed...... enzymes were dependent on the metal ion present, suggesting a function of the investigated aspartic acid residues both in the binding of ribose 5-phosphate, possibly via a divalent metal ion, and in the interaction with a divalent metal ion during catalysis....

  13. Anisotropy of creep for vortex motion along twin planes in YBa2Cu3O7-x single crystals

    Bondarenko, A.V.; Prodan, A.A.; Obolenskij, M.A.; Vovk, R.V.; Arouri, T.R.


    Anisotropy of magnetic flux creep was investigated for the flux motion along the twin boundaries. It is shown that in relatively low magnetic fields the velocity of vortex creep does not depend on magnetic field and angle α identical H, ab. It is found that the differential resistivity ρ identical dE/dJ at high transport currents tends to saturation and its value is close to the viscous friction resistivity in the Bardeen-Stephen model. In low magnetic fields for the field applied in the vicinity of the ab-plane of the crystal a lock-in transition of vortices between the superconducting CuO layers was observed

  16. The influence of γ-irradiation cobalt 60 on electrical properties of undoped GaAs treated with hydrogen plasma

    Korshunov, F.P.; Kurilovich, N.F.; Prokhorenko, T.A.; Bumaj, Yu.A.; Ul'yashin, A.G.


    The influence of exposition to a hydrogen plasma (hydrogenation) on the electrical properties alteration under gamma-irradiation in bulk GaAs have been investigated. It is shown that crystals hydrogenation before irradiation leads to particularly passivation of electrically active defects that are responsible for carriers scattering and removing processes in irradiated crystals. Radiation defects thermostability in hydrogenated GaAs crystals is lower than that in non hydrogenated ones. The energetic levels position of main defect that effects on electrical properties alteration after irradiation in GaAs crystals was detected. It is equal to E D =E C -0,125±0,0005 eV
