A ((nite) Fibonacci string F n is deened as follows: F 0 = b, F 1 = a; for every integer n 2, F n = F n?1 F n?2. For n 1, the length of F n is denoted by f n = jF n j. The innnite Fibonacci string F is the string which contains every F n , n 1, as a preex. Apart from their general theoretical importance, Fibonacci strings are often cited as worst case(More)
Objective: The study objectives were to develop and validate a substance use disorder screening instrument for vocational rehabilitation customers. Beginning with the Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory–3 (SASSI-3), the authors developed items pertaining to prescription medication misuse and modified other items. Research Method/Design: Data were(More)
A lack of demographic information and data related to the achievement of short-term goals during substance abuse treatment among persons who are deaf or hard of hearing dictated the need for the study. New York State maintains a database on all individuals who participate in treatment. Within this database, 1.8% of persons in treatment for substance use(More)
Acute and chronic efficacy tests of stiripentol (4,4-dimethyl-1-[3,4-(methylenedioxy)-phenyl]-1-penten-3-ol) were conducted in alumina-gel rhesus monkeys. In the acute study (n = 6), discrete serial seizures precipitated by 150 mg/kg of 4-deoxypyridoxine hydrochloride were challenged by intravenous administration of stiripentol and the data compared with(More)
Let x denote a given nonempty string of length n = jxj 1. A string u is a cover of x if and only if every position of x lies within an occurrence of u within x. Thus x is always a cover of itself. In this paper we characterize all the covers of x in terms of an easily computed normal form for x. The characterization theorem then gives rise to a simple(More)
This paper discusses how to count and generate strings that are \distinct" in two senses: p-distinct and b-distinct. Two strings x on alphabet A and x 0 on alphabet A 0 are said to be p-distinct ii they represent distinct \patterns"; that is, ii there exists no one-one mapping from A to A 0 that transforms x into x 0. Thus aab and baa are p-distinct while(More)
PURPOSE The combination of fludarabine and cyclophosphamide is an effective regimen for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). However, it may be accompanied by increased toxicity compared with fludarabine alone. E2997 is a phase III randomized Intergroup trial comparing fludarabine and cyclophosphamide (FC arm) versus fludarabine (F arm) alone(More)
This note corrects an error in a paper recently published in this journal (An optimal algorithm to compute all the covers of a string, IPL 50-5 (1994) 239-246). The correction consists primarily of a new subalgorithm which is called by COMPUTE COVERS, the main algorithm presented in the paper referenced. It turns out that the new subalgorithm is itself(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify specific cultural and behavioural factors that might be influenced to increase colostrum feeding in a rural village in Northern Ethiopia to improve infant health. DESIGN Background interviews were conducted with six community health workers and two traditional birth attendants. A semi-structured tape-recorded interview was conducted(More)
