The authors discuss the role of infant observation in the training of child psychiatrists, emphasizing the overriding importance of the subtle but crucial interactions in the mother-infant relationship. Infant observation is valuable in preparing the student as an observer of behavior, and developmental concepts are taught and learned more easily in(More)
Two enhancements to the combinatorial geometry (CG) particle tracker in the Mercury Monte Carlo transport code are presented. The first enhancement is a hybrid particle tracker wherein a mesh region is embedded within a CG region. This method permits efficient calculations of problems with contain both large-scale heterogeneous and homogeneous regions. The(More)
Many distributed systems may be limited in their performance by the number of transactions they are able to support per unit of time. In order to achieve fault tolerance and to boost a system's performance, active state machine replication is frequently used. It employs total ordering service to keep the state of replicas synchronized. In this paper, we(More)
With the waning of the tonic neck reflex beginning with the 8th to 12th week, and disappearing, in most instances, by the 16th week, the infant begins to become bilateral and makes symmetrical movements and engages his hands in the midline usually over the chest while in a supine position. The developmental significance of such behavior is considered--for(More)
A Monte Carlo method for calculating the probability of initiating a self-sustaining neutron chain reaction has been developed. In contrast to deterministic codes which solve a non-linear, adjoint form of the Boltzmann equation to calculate initiation probability, this new method solves the forward (standard) form of the equation using a modified source(More)
The new physics, algorithmic and computer science capabilities of the Mercury general-purpose Monte Carlo particle transport code are discussed. The new physics and algorithmic features include in-line energy deposition and isotopic depletion, significant enhancements to the tally and source capabilities, diagnostic ray-traced particles, support for(More)
