General Information Since the second edition of Using Algebraic Geometry appeared in 2005, Maple's Groebner package has undergone further revisions and extensions. Hence some of the discussion in the text and some examples are no longer up-to-date. The purposes of this update are to indicate the most important changes, to illustrate some of the increased(More)
Hansen (Appl. Algebra Eng. Comm. Comput. 14 (2003) 175) uses cohomological methods to find a lower bound for the minimum distance of an evaluation code determined by a reduced complete intersection in P 2. In this paper, we generalize Hansen's results from P 2 to P m ; we also show that the hypotheses of Hansen (2003) may be weakened. The proof is succinct(More)
In the early 21st century, firms are thinking seriously and practically about an interactive marketing paradigm— one that integrates mass scale with individual responsiveness. The focus of this paper is on how this interactive environment is changing the customer decision-making process. With the increased amount of information available , the existence of(More)
Toric codes are a class of m-dimensional cyclic codes introduced recently by J. Hansen in [7], [8], and studied in [9], [5], [10]. They may be defined as evaluation codes obtained from monomials corresponding to integer lattice points in an integral convex polytope P ⊆ R m. As such, they are in a sense a natural extension of Reed-Solomon codes. Several(More)
INTRO Binge eating disorder (BED) affects 3.5% of the population and is characterized by binge eating for at least 2 days a week for 6 months. Treatment options include cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, and pharmacotherapy which are associated with varied success. Little is known about the biology of BED. Since there is evidence(More)
We analyze the effect of doping on photoelectron kinetics in quantum dot [QD] structures and find two strong effects of the built-in-dot charge. First, the built-in-dot charge enhances the infrared [IR] transitions in QD structures. This effect significantly increases electron coupling to IR radiation and improves harvesting of the IR power in QD solar(More)
