Safety is an important issue in process design and operation in the chemical process industry (CPI). It is even more critical for modern chemical manufacturing processes, which are either operated under extreme conditions to achieve maximum economic profit, or are highly flexible. The importance of safety analysis in process operation is well recognized(More)
The Method of Moments (MoM) is often effectively used inthe extraction of passive components in modeling integratedcircuits and MCM packaging. MoM extraction, however,involves solving a dense system of linear equations, and using direct factorization methods can be prohibitive for large problems. In this paper, we present a Fast Method of Moments Solver(More)
In tegral equation approaches based on layered media Green's functions are often used to extract models of integrated circuit structures. The primary advan tage of these approaches over equiv alen t-sourcebased schemes is the dramatic reduction in problem size. When combined with an SVD-accelerated sc heme for the solution of the associated dense linear(More)
Retinitis pigmentosa is a major cause of visual impairment and blindness, affecting millions of people worldwide. The mechanisms of and effective treatments for the disease, however, remain to be further investigated. The Royal College of Surgeons rat is one of the most widely used animal models for the study of retinal degeneration diseases. The mutation(More)

Inorganic fertilizer is one of the most important anthropogenic inputs which influences soil nutrient turnover in agricultural ecosystems. However, as the key process involved in the maintenance, transformation and stability of soil nitrogen (N), the incorporation and allocation of fertilizer N between different soil organic N (SON) fractions in a growing(More)
In the developing chick retina, heat shock protein 108 (HSP108), which exhibits transferrin binding activity, has been demonstrated at the mRNA level, while transferrin shows two expression peaks. Here, we investigated the expression profile of HSP108 in the developing chick retina at the protein level. The localization of HSP108 in embryonic days 15 (E15),(More)
PURPOSE To compare the effects of voriconazole (VCZ) and liposomal amphotericin B (Amp-B) in an experimental model of Aspergillus fumigatus endophthalmitis. METHODS Thirty guinea pigs received an intravitreal injection of A. fumigatus to induce endophthalmitis. The animals were randomly divided into three groups, including control (0.02 mL balanced salt(More)
MY-174 is an IgM class monoclonal antibody originally established against chick PG-M/versican. The antibody specifically stains the photoreceptor layer, where we recently reported an absence of PG-M/versican. In this study, we re-characterized the antibody and identified the molecule that reacts to MY-174 at the photoreceptor layer. Immunohistochemistry(More)
