OBJECTIVE To determine whether blood pressure control in a general practice setting is influenced by the presence of additional risk factors, and to analyse the role of antihypertensive therapy in this relationship. DESIGN A cross-sectional study was conducted with a sample of 3153 general practitioners. SETTING Primary care. PARTICIPANTS The first(More)
We give a formula for the number of rational points of projective algebraic curves deened over a nite eld, and a bound \\ a l a W eil" for connected ones. More precisely, we give the characteristic polynomials of the Frobenius endomorphism on the etalè-adic cohomology groups of the curve. Finally, as an analogue of Artin's holomorphy conjecture, we p r o ve(More)
The aim of this paper is to explain how, starting from a Goppa Dχ is a non-principal degree 0 divisor on X associated to a character χ of Gal(Y /X), in the hope that X (G + Dχ) > X (G). We give, using a MAGMA program, several examples where this occurs, and where both the initial and twisted codes have same minimum distance, so that initial codes have been(More)
Let q be a power of an odd prime number and Fq be the finite field with q elements. We will construct a binary spherical code from an algebraic curve C defined over Fq and a rational divisor G on C, as the twist by the quadratic character 11 of the Goppa code L(G). The computation of the parameters of this code is based on the study of some character sums.(More)
