This manual is intended to provide guidance to aid dischargers in characterizing the type of toxicants that are causing chronic toxicity in industrial and municipal effluents. In a regulatory context, a toxicity identification evaluation (TIE) may be required as part of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit or as an enforcement(More)
In on-board decision support systems, effi cient procedures are needed for real-time estimation of the maximum ship responses to be expected within the next few hours, given online information on the sea state and user-defi ned ranges of possible headings and speeds. For linear responses, standard frequency domain methods can be applied. For non-linear(More)
We describe the desire for a black box approach to pattern classification: a generic Autonomous Pattern Recognizer, which is capable of self-adapting to specific alphabets without human intervention. The CellNet software system is introduced, an evolutionary system that optimizes a set of pattern-recognizing agents relative to a provided set of features and(More)
Security and usability are often horn locked and at times, security experts tend to make a system more secure on expense of usability. For nomadic users, however, this approach is highly undesirable and due to poor resultant usability, users start feeling the need to circumvent the security mechanism. Although designed with a high level of security, such a(More)
Acknowledgements These results are compiled by Agro Business Park based on inputs from the whole project group. Without these dedicated inputs and the great spirit of cooperation between the research institutions involved and across borders and scientific traditions and disciplines, the result would have been much less coherent – and much less useful. It is(More)
High quality epitaxial layers of nominally undoped ZnSe have been grown by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition at iow temperature ( 325 oc) and pressure ( 30 Torr), using dimethylzinc and hydrogen selenide. All layers were unintentionally doped n type with net carrier concentrations of 6.4 X 10-1.5 X 10 em3 and exhibited very high mobility at room(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies have reported a potential analgesic effect of botulinum toxin A (BTXA) in musculoskeletal pain. The present double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel clinical trial studied the effect of BTXA on pain from muscle trigger points and on EMG activity at rest and during voluntary contraction. METHODS Thirty patients with(More)
