Knowledge processes and business processes are linked together and should be regarded together, too. Business processes can be modeled and analyzed extensively with well known and established methods. The simple signs of static knowledge does not fulfill the requirements of a comprehensive and integrated approach of process-oriented knowledge management.(More)
The synovial fluids (SF) of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were investigated for their effects on thymocytes of C3H/HeJ mice. Of the 20 SF tested, 17 (85%) showed an augmentation of the phytohaemagglutinin (PHA) induced thymocyte stimulation. Out of 16 SF of patients with osteoarthrosis, such an activity was detected in only one (6.25%). Further(More)
An approach to the integrated water resources management based on Neuro-Dynamic Programming (NDP) with an improved technique for fastening its Artificial Neural Network (ANN) training phase will be presented. When dealing with networks of water resources, Stochastic Dynamic Programming provides an effective solution methodology but suffers from the(More)
Not only the public services are able to ensure the effective and efficient use of e-democracy tools. This contribution points out how a party must be structured to function as a neutral service provider for the citizen to set the results of electronic decision-making processes generally binding. The party provides only the methodology and the technology of(More)
We performed studies to determine the relationship between injured vessel wall thrombogenicity, vessel wall 13-hydroxyoctadecadienoic acid (13-HODE) synthesis and cAMP levels in rabbit treated with salicylate or dipyridamole. Injured vessel wall thrombogenicity was measured as the number of 3H-adenine labelled platelets adhered to the subendothelial(More)
To test the possibility that different doses of heparin or other sulfated polysaccharides are required to inhibit thrombosis initiated by different stimuli, we compared the effects of heparin (HEP), pentosan polysulfate (SP54) and dermatan sulfate (DS) on the inhibition of thrombus formation induced by either I) tissue thromboplastin; II) thrombin; or III)(More)
The management of a water reservoir can be improved thanks to the use of stochastic dynamic programming (SDP) to generate management policies which are efficient with respect to the management objectives (flood protection, water supply for irrigation and hydropower generation, respect of minimum environmental flows, etc.). The improvement in efficiency is(More)
Stochastic Dynamic Programming (SDP) is the method most extensively adopted to design release policies for water reservoir networks. However, it suffers of the well known “curse of dimensionality”, which actually limits its applicability to small reservoir networks. In this paper we present an on-line approach to policy design that not only constitutes a(More)
