Experience design, an approach to create emotional connection with guests or customers through careful planning of tangible and intangible service elements, has gained popularity in many hospitality and retail businesses. With ever-increasing competition, service providers seek to develop loyalty by aggressively designing, continuously innovating, and(More)
1 Historical Summary Cosmological dark matter in the form of neutrinos with masses of up to a few electron volts is known as hot dark matter. In 1979-83, this appeared to be perhaps the most plausible dark matter candidate. Such HDM models of cosmological structure formation led to a top-down formation scenario, in which superclusters of galaxies are the(More)
The possible enhancement of the output from a partially shaded PV array by the use of AC modules has been determined for the PV facade at the University of Northumbria. The system currently has an annual shading loss of about 25% and the study has shown that the use of AC modules would increase the output by approximately 8%. The calculation method is(More)
The recent atmospheric neutrino data from Super-Kamiokande provide strong evidence of neutrino oscillations and therefore of non-zero neutrino mass. These data imply a lower limit on the hot dark matter (i.e., light neutrino) contribution to the cosmological density Ω ν > ∼ 0.001 — almost as much as that of all the stars in the universe — and permit higher(More)
We present two matched sets of five simulations each, covering five presently favored simple modifications to the standard cold dark matter (CDM) scenario. One simulation suite, with a linear box size of 75 h −1 Mpc, is designed for high resolution and good statistics on the group/poor cluster scale, and the other, with a box size of 300 h −1 Mpc, is(More)
Semi-analytic treatment of the power spectrum with the approximation of constant linear bias provides a way to compare cosmological models to a large amount of data, as Peacock & Dodds (1994, 1996; hereafter PD94 and PD96, respectively) have shown. By applying the appropriate corrections to the observational power spectrum it is possible to recover the(More)
