The libRadtran software package is a suite of tools for radiative transfer calculations in the Earth's atmosphere. Its main tool is the uvspec program. It may be used to compute radiances, irradiances and actinic fluxes in the solar and terrestrial part of the spectrum. The design of uvspec allows simple problems to be easily solved using defaults and… (More)
A new type of ring-imaging Cherenkov detector is being used for hadronic particle identification in the BABAR experiment at the SLAC B Factory (PEP-II). This detector is called DIRC, an acronym for Detection of Internally Reflected Cherenkov (Light). This paper will discuss the construction, operation and performance of the BABAR DIRC in detail.
In this paper we present a hybrid probabilistic framework for 3D image segmentation, using Conditional Random Fields (CRFs) and implicit deformable models. Our 3D deformable model uses voxel intensity and higher scale textures as data-driven terms, while the shape is formulated implicitly using the Euclidean distance transform. The data-driven terms are… (More)

The solution structures of the beta-cyclodextrin complexes between 2,3-diazabicyclo[2.2.2]oct-2-ene (1) and its 1-isopropyl-4-methyl derivative 2 have been investigated by means of induced circular dichroism (ICD) and MM3-92 force-field calculations, which considered the effect of solvation within a continuum approximation. Of primary interest was the… (More)
The structures, spectroscopic and photophysical properties of the inclusion complexes between 4-OH-biphenyl and cyclodextrins (CD) in water were studied theoretically and experimentally. The complex structures were predicted using a dynamic Monte Carlo procedure including solvation effects and analyzed via computed and experimentally determined circular… (More)
