Like many viruses, HPV is a fascinating organism. It is extremely difficult to grow in vitro; but once an individual becomes infected with HPV, it can be difficult or even impossible to eradicate. HPV is associated with mild to moderate disease that even in the absence of therapy may spontaneously regress. On the other hand, some HPV infections progress to(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the occurrence and pathology of porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2)-associated disease (PCVAD) of postweaning pigs in two Australian pig herds. METHODS Mortality data from two commercial piggeries that experienced higher than normal postweaning illthrift and mortalities were examined. Gross and histopathological examinations were(More)
CERN-EP/98-046 April 1, 1998 Lower bound for the Standard Model Higgs boson mass from combining the results of the four LEP experiments ALEPH, DELPHI, L3 and OPAL Collaborations The LEP working group for Higgs boson searches 1 Abstract Various statistical methods are considered to combine the searches for the Standard Model Higgs boson performed by the four(More)
The basis of this paper is the elementary observation that the n-step descendant distribution of any Galton-Watson process satisfies a discrete Smoluchowski coagulation equation with multiple coalescence. Using this we obtain necessary and sufficient criteria for the convergence of scaling limits of Galton-Watson processes that are simpler than the(More)
In this work we study the rate of convergence to similarity profiles in a mean field model for the deposition of a submonolayer of atoms in a crystal facet, when there is a critical minimal size n ≥ 2 for the stability of the formed clusters. The work complements recently published related results by the same authors in which the rate of convergence was(More)
