The theory describing the production of nasal consonants is reviewed and summarized. A method of simulating the acoustics of the vocal tract for nasal sounds is described and implemented. An attempt is made to formulate an approach to synthesis of nasal consonants from observations made from the simulations, in combination with the established theory and… (More)
1. A photometric method was devised for measuring the intensities of light emitted per cc. of hiciferin solution and calculating the amount of light emitted per gm. of dried Cypridina powder. A total of 128 runs was made and the data are incorporated in this report. 2. The maximum amount of light emitted from 1 gm. of powder under the experimental… (More)
The assessment and management of risks associated with software projects is a perennial problem and has received considerable attention in the IS literature. A number of recent studies have found that e-business projects differ from more traditional development projects and these differences may have implications for software project risk. This paper… (More)
The maximum brightness of one of the prothoracic light organs of the West Indian elaterid beetles, Pyrophorus (measured at Princeton, New Jersey) was found to be .045 lambert, or .045 lumen per sq. cm. at 20 degrees C. This corresponds to .0002 candle for one organ, or .0004 candle for the pair of prothoracic organs.
