This paper describes the augmented RIC model of respiratory impedance and analyzes its parameter values estimated--by a modified Newton method with least squares criterion--from impulse oscillometry data. The data were from asthmatic children, tested pre- and post-bronchodilator, and from healthy adults and a second group of adults with COPD. Our analyses(More)
A variational model for the epitaxial deposition of a film on a rigid substrate in the presence of a crystallographic misfit is studied. The scaling behavior of the minimal energy in terms of the volume of the film and the amplitude of the misfit is considered, and reduced models in the various regimes are derived by Γ-convergence methods. Depending on the(More)
