—3D integrated circuit technology with through-silicon vias offers many advantages include improved form factor, increased circuit performance, robust heterogenous integration and reduced costs. Wafer-to-wafer integration supports the highest possible density of through-silicon vias and highest throughput; however, in contrast to die-to-wafer integration,(More)
Understanding, extracting and solidifying documented project requirements is one of the most difficult tasks. Often the customer must first be taught how to give clear requirements. Project managers and personnel frequently compound the issue by automatically assuming requirements will change; yet, they fail to plan for, or proactively anticipate changes.(More)
Bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) clones have proven invaluable for genetic manipulation of herpesvirus genomes. BAC cloning can also be useful for capturing representative genomes that comprise a viral stock or mixture. The Towne live attenuated cytomegalovirus vaccine was developed in the 1970s by serial passage in cultured fibroblasts. Although its(More)
We take the opportunity to describe and illustrate in some special cases results which appear in [1]. 1. Classical results Let V be a finite dimensional vector space over a field k. We define a reflection to be a non-identity linear endomorphism V → V of finite order which fixes a hyperplane. Such an endomorphism must be diagonalizable when k is the complex(More)
" It is difficult to realize how great a part of all that is cheerful and delightful in the recollections of our own life is associated with trees. "-Wilson Flagg " Vancouver's urban forest is a healthy, dynamic, diverse, and cohesive ecosystem that is valued and cared for through community stewardship because it balances economic vitality with the(More)
