Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) has been implicated as a factor in retinal differentiation and disease. Recent studies have shown that subretinal or intravitreal injections of bFGF delay the retinal degeneration of the RCS rat but the global nature of this effect has been quantified for few test animals and the mechanism underlying this effect is not(More)
Aspects of the problem of finding approximate factors of a polynomial in many variables are considered. The idea is that a polynomial may be the result of a computation where a reducible polynomial was expected but due to introduction of floating point coefficients or measurement errors the polynomial is irreducible. Introduction of such errors will nearly(More)
