This paper proposes a new PID parameter tuning method using particle swarm optimization (PSO) without tuning operatorpsilas know-how. The method searches the PID parameter that realizes the expected step response of the plant. The expected response is defined by the overshoot ratio, the rising time, the settling time. The method is implemented into the PID(More)
To improve the production of oligo-1,6-glucosidase from the obligately thermophilic Bacillus thermoglucosidasius KP1006 in Escherichia coli, the combined expression of oligo-1,6-glucosidase with various chaperone proteins of Hsp (heat-shock protein) 60 team proteins (GroES and GroEL) or Hsp70 team proteins (GrpE, DnaK and DnaJ) from the same thermophile was(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to clarify differences between micro-vascular and iodine-staining patterns in the vicinity of the tumor fronts of superficial esophageal squamous cell carcinomas (ESCCs). METHODS Ten consecutive patients with ESCCs who were treated by endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) were enrolled. At the edge of the(More)
The use of mediastinal surgery for minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE) has been proposed; however, this method is not performed as radical surgery because it has been thought to be impossible to perform complete upper mediastinal dissection, including the left tracheobronchial lymph nodes (106tbL). We herein describe a new method for performing complete(More)
There are no useful methods for predicting anastomosis-relating complications after esophagectomy; however, anastomotic leakage remains one of the most serious postoperative complications. We retrospectively investigated the appropriateness of endoscopic examinations on postoperative day 1 (POD 1) for assessing esophageal reconstruction by analyzing the(More)
This paper reports the results of processes resulting in D0(u) (+)-X (1)Sigma(g) (+) emission when a single rovibrational level of the E0(g) (+) state is prepared. Our study reveals that two kinds of processes populate the D0(u) (+) state; which one occurs depends on the experimental conditions. One process involves amplified spontaneous emission from the(More)
