STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Clinical changes in the viscoelasticity of temporary soft lining materials are characterized by a more rapid and increased reduction in compliance than is seen after in vitro immersion. A possible explanation for these differences is a solvent effect, acting clinically to encourage the loss of ethanol and plasticizer. Dietary solvents(More)
Cleft lip and palate is a common craniofacial malformation in man. The aetiology is multifactorial and not known. Since collagen is a major structural component of the developing palate, we studied its composition and metabolism during palate shelf formation and elevation in the rat. Palatal shelves were harvested at embryonic days (E) 15, 16 and 17 as well(More)
Two classes of mathematical programs with optimization problems in the constraints have recently been studied by two of the authors The first class involves mathematical programs in the constraints, and the second class involves max-min problems in the constraints. A computational technique has been developed and shown to be effective in solving problems of(More)
The usefulness of manpower projections are reviewed and methodologies for projecting are reviewed. Estimates of current (1975) and projected (1990) surpluses and deficits of dentists are presented for Illinois. The model used to derive these estimates has the following characteristics. 1. Only generally available data are used. 2. Mortality rates of(More)
