We investigate the seven exceptional families as defined in [GMT]. Experimental as well as rigorous evidence suggests that to each family corresponds exactly one manifold. A certain two generator subgroup in PSL(2, C) is specified for each of the seven families in [GMT]. Using Newton's method for finding roots of polynomials in several variables we solve(More)
We present a study of certain singular one-parameter subfamilies of Calabi-Yau threefolds realized as anticanonical hypersurfaces or complete intersections in toric varieties. Our attention to these families is motivated by the Doran-Morgan classification of variations of Hodge structure which can underlie families of Calabi-Yau threefolds with h 2,1 = 1(More)
An assessment of whether valid EEG data could be collected on helicopter pilots in flight was conducted. Each subject provided eyes-open/eyes-closed EEG in the laboratory and in a helicopter. During flights, EEG's were monitored on the ground in real-time via radio telemetry. Analyses were conducted on the data recorded from Fz, Cz, Pz, P3, P4, O1, and O2(More)
Von-Hippel Lindau (VHL) disease is a rare, inherited multicystic disorder that is characterized by several benign and malignant neoplasms (1). Classically, the disease manifests itself in a broad spectrum including: renal cell carcinomas, intracranial and spinal hemangioblastomas, endolymphatic sac tumors, renal and pancreatic cysts, and pheochromocytomas.(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of myopia-inducing and myopia recovery conditions on the scleral biomechanics of enucleated eyes of young chicks. Enucleated eyes from 5-day old chicks, with fiducial markers attached at 5 locations on the external sclera, were placed in a custom-built chamber filled with phosphate-buffered saline, and(More)
An approach using two serum concentrations following the initial dose of an aminoglycoside was retrospectively evaluated using the first and third samples from all three-point studies conducted by the pharmacokinetic consult service in 1988. The same Sawchuk and Zaske method was used for the three-point and two-point studies. Although the predicted peaks(More)
