To determine effects of intraarticularly administered tiludronate on articular cartilage in vivo, eight healthy horses were injected once with tiludronate (low dose tiludronate [LDT] 0.017 mg, n = 4; high dose tiludronate [HDT] 50 mg, n = 4) into one middle carpal joint and with saline into the contralateral joint. Arthrocentesis of both middle carpal(More)
The adoption of a rigorous software process is well known to represent a key factor for the quality of the software product and the most effective usage of the human resources available to a software project. The Unified Process, in particular its commercial packaging known as the RUP (Rational Unified Process) has been one of the most widely used software(More)
The Online Book-keeper (OBK) was developed to keep track of past data taking activity, as well as providing the hardware and software conditions during physics data taking to the scientists doing offline analysis. The approach adopted to build the OBK was to develop a series of prototypes, experimenting and comparing different DBMS systems for data storage.(More)
A sample of 3.6 million hadronic Z decays recorded between 1991 and 1995 with the ALEPH detector at LEP is used to investigate semileptonic decays of B mesons into nal states involving orbitally excited charm mesons. Topo-logical vertex criteria are used to search for decays involving narrow D states as well as wide D resonances and non-resonant D () nal(More)
Indirect limits on the mass of the lightest neutralino are derived from the results of searches for charginos, neutralinos, and sleptons performed with data taken by the ALEPH Collaboration at centre-of-mass energies near the Z peak and at 130 and 136 GeV. Within the context of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model and whenMν̃ ≥ 200 GeV/c, the boundMχ >(More)
A search for Bs oscillations is performed using a sample of semileptonic b-hadron decays collected by the ALEPH experiment during 1991–1995. Compared to previous inclusive lepton analyses, the proper time resolution and b-flavour mistag rate are significantly improved. Additional sensitivity to Bs mixing is obtained by identifying subsamples of events(More)
The ALEPH Silicon Vertex Detector is the rst detector operating in a colliding beam environment that uses silicon strip detectors which provide readout on both sides and hence a three{ dimensional point measurement for the trajectory of charged particles. The detector system was commissioned successfully at the ee collider LEP at the research centre CERN,(More)
Searches for scalar top and bottom quarks have been performed with data collected by the ALEPH detector at LEP. The data sample consists of 21.7 pb taken at √ s = 161, 170, and 172 GeV and 5.7 pb taken at √ s = 130 and 136 GeV. No evidence for scalar top quarks or scalar bottom quarks was found in the channels t̃ → cχ, t̃ → blν̃, and b̃ → bχ. For the(More)

Using the data accumulated at LEP in 1989 and 1990 with the A L E P H detector, the inclusive and exclusive branching ratios o f the r lepton have been measured assuming lepton universality in Z ~ decays. The inclusive branching fractions for the r decay into one, three, and five charged particles have been determined to be (85.45 _+ 0.97)%, (14.35 _+(More)
