The CBM Collaboration proposes to build a dedicated heavy-ion experiment to investigate the properties of highly compressed baryonic matter as it is produced in nucleus-nucleus collisions at the future accelerator facility in Darmstadt. Our goal is to explore the QCD phase diagram in the region of moderate temperatures but very high baryon densities. The(More)
An optimized DNA extraction protocol for animal tissues coupled with sensitive PCR methods was used to determine whether trace levels of feed-derived DNA fragments, plant and/or transgenic, are detectable in animal tissue samples including dairy milk and samples of muscle (meat) from chickens, swine, and beef steers. Assays were developed to detect DNA(More)
For years, an increasing number and diversity of genetically modified plants has been grown on a commercial scale. The need for detection and identification of these genetically modified organisms (GMOs) calls for broad and at the same time flexible high throughput testing methods. Here we describe the development and validation of a hexaplex real-time(More)
A general purpose neurocomputer, SYNAPSE-1, which exhibits a multiprocessor and memory architecture is presented. It offers wide flexibility with respect to neural algorithms and a speed-up factor of several orders of magnitude--including learning. The computational power is provided by a 2-dimensional systolic array of neural signal processors. Since the(More)
This paper describes the general purpose neurocom-puter SYNAPSE–1 which has been developed in cooperation between Siemens Munich and the University of Mannheim. This system contains one of the most powerful processors available for neural algorithms, the neuro signal processor MA16. The prototype system executes a test algorithm 8,000 times as fast as a(More)
A central part of the work in Incident Commands (ICs) deals with handling messages that contain relevant information. Classification schemes for messages can be exploited by command staff and assisting tools to support this work, given that a common understanding of the scheme is shared among participants. We present user studies on two such(More)
We have searched for Theta+(1540) and Xi(--)(1862) pentaquark candidates in proton-induced reactions on C, Ti, and W targets at midrapidity and square root of s = 41.6 GeV. In 2 x 10(8) inelastic events we find no evidence for narrow (sigma approximately 5 MeV) signals in the Theta+ --> pK0(S) and Xi(--) --> Xi- pi- channels; our 95% C.L. upper limits (UL)(More)
The Active Buffer Board (ABB) was reIn order to test the redesigned ABB cards and to test memory and interconnection modules a number of IP-cores have been developed. The infrastructure module is based on the embedded PowerPC processor in the Virtex-4 FPGA. Specialised IP-cores to access the serial links and memory interface via the processor bus (PLB)(More)
A measurement of the polarization of Λ and Λ baryons produced in pC and pW collisions at √ s = 41.6 GeV has been performed with the HERA B spectrometer. The measurements cover the kinematic range of 0.6 GeV/c < p ⊥ < 1.2 GeV/c in transverse momentum and −0.15 < x F < 0.01 in Feynman-x. The polarization results from the two different targets agree within the(More)
