In analogy with radiation fields for asymptotically Euclidean manifolds, introduced by F.G. Friedlander, we define radiation fields for asymptotically hyperbolic manifolds. We use them to give a translation representation of the wave group and to obtain the scattering matrix for such manifolds. Furthermore, we prove a support theorem for the radiation(More)
In reflection seismology one places point sources and point receivers on the earth's surface, forming an acquisition geometry. Each source generates acoustic waves in the subsurface, that are reflected where the medium properties vary discontinuously. The reflections that can be observed at the receivers are used to image these discontinuities or reflectors(More)
We show that the resonances of a smooth super-exponentially decaying self-adjoint perturbation of the Laplacian in R n ; n 3 odd, determine the Minakshisundaram coeecients d j ; j 2; of the expansion of the regularized heat (wave) trace, provided that there are no negative eigenvalues and zero is not a resonance. We use this to prove the existence of(More)
Enterococci are ubiquitous microorganisms, found as part of the normal intestinal microbiota of many animals. They can be present in food products, for example, the Portuguese dry fermented sausage chouriço. Twenty enterococci were isolated from chouriço in two processing units; after identification and typification by conventional-molecular methods, the(More)
The gastrointestinal tract of 14 false killer whales, 6 males and 8 females, stranded in June 1995 in southern Brazil, with total standard lengths from 338 to 507 cm, were analysed for endoparasites and food items. A pregnant female had a male foetus of 77.5 cm. Parasites were found in all 14 false killer whales. The nematode Anisakis simplex (Rudolphi,(More)
1. The aim of this work was to evaluate the shelf life of turkey meat from different colour categories (Pale, Soft and Exudative (PSE)-like), intermediate and dark), packaged under aerobic or modified atmosphere (MAP) conditions; also to establish a relationship between microbial quality and total volatile basic nitrogen (TVB-N), evaluating its capacity for(More)
Physicochemical and sensory characteristics were measured in veal and beef from the Portuguese Mertolenga breed having 3 quality labels as follows: Mertolenga-PDO beef and veal which apply to purebred animals and "Vitela Tradicional do Montado"-PGI veal which applies to crossbred animals. Measurements were made in longissimus lumborum muscle aged for 6days.(More)
There is a lack of knowledge related to the action of Ar on microbial development and prevention of oxidation when applied to raw meat under modified-atmosphere package (MAP). The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of an anaerobic gas mixture with Ar on spoilage flora growth, color, and lipid oxidation stability of turkey meat under MAP stored at(More)
