Visual-spatial learning in young adult nonalcoholic men and women with (FH+) and those without (FH-) a family history of alcoholism was investigated using nonsense shapes of high and low verbal association value. Four groups of FH+ and FH- men and women, 16 subjects in each group, were tested. The male FH+ group required significantly more trials to reach(More)
A combination of singular value decomposition, entropy minimization, and simulated annealing was applied to a synthetic 7-species spectroscopic data set with added white noise. The pure spectra were highly overlapping. Global minima for selected objective functions were obtained for the transformation of the first seven right singular vectors. Simple(More)
Effects of radiation on sensing and data transmission components are of great interest in many applications including homeland security, nuclear power generation, and military. A new type of microstructured optical fiber (MOF) called the random hole optical fiber (RHOF) has been recently developed. The RHOFs can be made in many different forms by varying(More)
An efficient two-dimensional (2D) peak-finding algorithm is proposed to find peak maps that specify the peak centers of all bands in two-dimensional arrays of time-series infrared spectral data. The algorithm combines the second-derivative method with the intrinsic characteristics of 2D infrared reaction spectral data. Initially, the second-derivative(More)
Simulations of isotope-production irradiations of targets in the radiation environments of fission reactors or particle accelerators require the evaluation of proton and/or neutron particle fluxes within the target and the integration of these with appropriate cross-section data. In fission reactors, proton fluxes are typically considered negligible and the(More)
