Sorghum midge (Stenodiplosis sorghicola Coquillett) is an important pest of grain sorghum, and host plant resistance is one of the most effective means of controlling this pest. Several studies have shown that resistance to sorghum midge is associated with short and tight glumes, faster rate of grain development, and tannins. However, some recent studies(More)
We investigated the effect of halothane and sevoflurane on oxygenation during one lung ventilation (OLV) in 24 patients undergoing elective thoracic procedures. After induction with thiopentone, 4-5 mg/kg and morphine 0.1 mg/kg, suxamethonium 2mg/kg was administered to facilitate tracheal intubation with a double lumen tube. Anaesthesia was maintained with(More)
Strokes following cardiac surgery occur in about 5% of patients. Intra-arterial thrombolysis is a good option in such a setting where intravenous thrombolysis is contraindicated, and when in-hospital strokes are detected well within the window for treatment and the chances of complete reperfusion are maximum. On postoperative day 4 after atrial septal(More)
Simulated moving bed chromatography (SMBC) has emerged as a significant separation technology in the process industry. SMB operating parameters are chosen to satisfy various performance objectives such as maximization of purity or productivity and the choice of the objective is generally guided by process economics. From an industrial perspective, the SMB(More)
Today, the challenge is to exploit the parallelism available in the way of multi-core architectures by the software. This could be done by rewriting the application, by exploiting the hardware capabilities or expect the compiler/software runtime tools to do the job for us. With the advent of multi-core architectures ([1] [2]), this problem is becoming more(More)
— This article considers the adaptive robust constrained regulation problem for a class of nonlinear plants with bounded additive disturbances. The nonlinear dynamics of the plant are approximated as an uncertain Quasi-Linear Parameter Varying (Q-LPV) system in which the time varying parameter consist of an on-line adaptation of weights of multiple linear(More)
