Over the past decade, networks have become a leading model to illustrate both the anatomical relationships (structural networks) and the coupling of dynamic physiology (functional networks) linking separate brain regions. The relationship between these two levels of description remains incompletely understood and an area of intense research interest. In(More)
Measurement of the flatness of cold rolled steel strip or aluminum foil is a vital aspect of production quality control. Cold lamination control based on the results of this measurement crucially affects production efficiency, but further processes can modify this flatness, and it can be even lost when strip becomes cold. We describe a low-cost flatness(More)
We develop a new PML formulation for the linearized shallow-water equations including the Coriolis force. The construction process is based on the uncoupling of the velocity components with the depth of water. Then the damping effect is only applied to the propagative modes just as was formerly done by Nataf [1] to the linearized Euler equations to enforce(More)
The enzymatic activities of bacteria isolated from the digestive tracts of caterpillars and the pupal contents of Automeris zugana and Rothschildia lebeau was studied. This digestive tract represents an extreme microenvironment due to its high pH and presence of antimicrobial substances secreted by the insect or derived from ingested plant tissue. At the(More)
One of the major drawbacks of high-ratio step-up transformers is the high value of their secondary side capacitor. This value is reflected at the primary side giving rise to a non-desirable one. There are some converters [1][2][3] which include this capacitor in the topology and can cope with it, and even more, they need it. Particularly, in high-voltage(More)

Steel cleanliness is very important prior to any steel coating process. A novel online cleanliness sensor for steel flat products has been designed. Sensor is based in the optical reflectivity of the dirty steel, which has been analyzed to determine how the incident light beam is dispersed. Lamination/processing steel marks effect on the light dispersion(More)
Dengue is considered the most important arthropod-borne viral disease in humans and is caused by any of the four dengue virus (DENV-1-4) serotypes. DENV may cause the potentially fatal disease named dengue hemorrhagic fever/ dengue shock syndrome (DHF/DSS). Although apoptosis has been implicated in DHF/DSS pathogenesis, the in vivo mechanisms have not been(More)
To study some biological and molecular properties of nine DENV-2 strains isolated during the 1981 Cuban epidemic, temperature sensitivity, viral plaque size, the kinetic of virus replication in newborn mice inoculated by intracerebral route, the influence of pH medium on virus-cell attachment phase and the restriction enzyme pattern were studied.
