A system of two degrees of freedom with quadratic and cubic nonlinearities and subjected to parametric and external excitations is studied and solved. The method of multiple scale perturbation technique (MSPT) is used to analyze the response of this system. Four ordinary differential equations are derived to describe the modulation of the amplitudes and(More)
Twenty patients with idiopathic "warm" autoimmune haemolytic anaemia and 40 controls were types concurrently for human leucocyte antigens (HLA) A, B, C, and DRW. There was a significantly stronger association of HLA-B8 with the disease (chi 2 = 10.39; p = 0.018) than HLA-DRW3 (chi 2 = 3.71; P = 0.35) and the patients also showed a significant increase in(More)
