We develop a model for the distribution of animals around encounter sites. It is particularly applicable to males attending mate-encounter sites, such as hilltops. Major predictions are: male distributions should be unstable; males should show little site tenacity, particularly when at low densities; males with low probability of mate capture should occupy(More)
Numerous human infections with avian influenza viruses in Asia in recent years have raised the concern that the next influenza pandemic is imminent. The most effective way to combat influenza is through the vaccination of the public. However, a minimum of 3-6 months is needed to develop an influenza vaccine using the traditional egg-based vaccine approach.(More)
On 4 May 1998, a pair of tornadoes occurred in the San Francisco Bay Area in the cities of Sunnyvale (F2 on the Fujita scale) and Los Altos (F1). The parent thunderstorm was anticyclonically rotating and produced tornadoes that were documented photographically to be anticyclonic as well, making for an extremely rare event. The tornadic thunderstorm was one(More)
This paper describes a variety of practical application circuits based on the current loop signal conditioning paradigm. Equations defining the circuit response are also provided. The constant current loop is a fundamental signal conditioning circuit concept that can be implemented in a variety of configurations for resistance-based transducers, such as(More)

Current loop circuitry replaced Wheatstone bridge circuitry to signal-condition strain gage transducers in more than 350 data channels for two different test programs at NASA Dryden Flight Research Center. The uncorrected test data from current loop circuitry had a lower noise level than data from comparable Wheatstone bridge circuitry, were linear with(More)
AND CONCLUSIONS Chemical Mechanical Planarization (CMP) must continuously improve to meet the stringent requirements of next generation IC device manufacturing. Precision flow control of CMP slurry is critical to achieving a repeatable planarization process, minimizing slurry waste, and reducing cost-of-ownership (CoO). Monitoring and controlling slurry(More)
