This paper analyzes a single-period inventory model of profit maximization with a reordering strategy in an imprecise environment. The entire period is divided into two slots and the customer demand is considered as a fuzzy number in situations where the demand in each slot is linguistic in nature and characterized as ‘demand is about d’. The reordering is(More)
We present a systematic isotope labeling study of the protein G mutant NuG2b as a step toward the production of reliable, structurally stable, experimental standards for amide I infrared spectroscopic simulations. By introducing isotope enriched amino acids into a minimal growth medium during bacterial expression, we induce uniform labeling of the amide(More)
Size effects at initial yield (prior to stage II) of idealized micron-sized specimens are modeled within a continuum model of plasticity. Two different aspects are considered: specification of a density of dislocation sources that represent the emission of dislocation dipoles, and the presence of an initial, spatially inhomogeneous excess dislocation(More)
ISOCAM, the camera on–board ISO, takes images of the sky in the wavelength range 2.5 to 18 m. It features two independent channels, containing each a 32 32 pixel detector: the short wavelength channel – 2.5 to 5.5 m, and the long wavelength channel – 4 to 18 m. Each channel features 10 or 11 discrete band pass filters and CVFs with a resolution better than(More)
Although titanium alloys have outstanding mechanical properties such as high hot hardness, a good strength-to-weight ratio and high corrosion resistance; their low thermal conductivity, high chemical affinity to tool materials severely impair their machinability. Ultrasonically assisted machining (UAM) is an advanced machining technique, which has been(More)
New techniques have been developed to exploit the sensitivity of a commercial SQUID susceptometer in the study of the magnetization of metalloproteins. Previous studies have ignored both the slow relaxation (hours) of spin I = 1/2 nuclei and residual ferromagnetic impurities in sample holders. These potential sources of noise were at or below the(More)
