— We give deterministic and stochastic models of the traffic on a circular road without overtaking. From this model the mean speed is derived as an eigenvalue of the min-plus matrix describing the dynamics of the system in the deterministic case and as the Lyapunov exponent of a min-plus stochastic matrix in the stochastic case. The eigenvalue and the(More)
We give a stochastic maxplus model of the traffic on a circular road without overtaking. The average speed is a maxplus Lyapounov exponent. We obtain a complete characterization of the stationary regime. Based on this characterization we obtain an explicit formula for the average speed and a very simple asymptotic result when the number of cars grows to(More)
Pododermatitis, often called 'sore hocks', is a chronic, granulomatous, ulcerative dermatitis which most commonly affects the plantar aspect of the caudal metatarsal and tarsal areas. Pododermatitis is a common clinical finding in the pet rabbit population, but no data is available regarding the actual prevalence of this condition in the UK pet rabbit(More)
Six lop rabbits were presented with clinical signs of otitis media or externa. The presence of disease was confirmed by computerized tomography examination, with two rabbits suffering from bilateral disease. The rabbits were anaesthetized and underwent surgery of the affected bulla. Rabbits with bilateral disease had a minimum of 2 weeks between procedures.(More)
A retrospective study compared invasive (arterial blood gas analysis) and non-invasive (capnography and pulse oximetry) methods of monitoring respiratory function in conscious rabbits. Arterial samples from 50 healthy dwarf lop rabbits, presenting for routine surgical neutering, were analysed on a point-of-care blood gas analysis machine. Reference(More)
Free-catch urine samples were collected from forty-one clinically normal domestic rabbits of various ages, breeds and both sexes. The Test γ GT Liquid-0018257640 was used for the in vitro quantitative determination of γ-Glutamyl-transferase (GGT) and reference intervals for γ-glutamyl transferase (γ-glutamyl transpeptidase, γ-GT, GGT) and GGT index(More)
