Given fixed 0 = q0 < q1 < q2 < · · · < q k = 1 a constellation in [n] is a scaled translated realization of the qi with all elements in [n], i. We consider the problem of minimizing the number of monochromatic constellations in a two coloring of [n]. We show how given a coloring based on a block pattern how to find the number of monochromatic solutions to a(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to determine the acute and chronic fixation strengths achieved by fibrin or polyethylene glycol (PEG) sealants to secure biologic mesh at the esophageal hiatus in a porcine model. METHODS For this study, 32 female domestic pigs were divided into four groups of 8 each. The four groups respectively received acute(More)
This paper gives a way to renormalise certain quantum field theories on compact manifolds. Examples include Yang-Mills theory (in dimension 4 only), Chern-Simons theory and holomorphic Chern-Simons theory. The method is within the framework of the Batalin-Vilkovisky formalism. Chern-Simons theory is renor-malised in a way respecting all symmetries (up to(More)
The clinical efficacy, safety, and bioavailability of a generic triamterene-hydrochlorothiazide product were compared with those of Dyazide. Thirty patients who had a diagnosis of nonlabile essential hypertension and who were receiving Dyazide (triamterene 50 mg and hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg) were continued on Dyazide maintenance for 16 days to determine(More)
