The inclusive single and double differential cross-sections for neutral and charged current processes with four-momentum transfer squared É ¾ between ½½¼ and ¿¼ ¼¼¼ Î ¾ and with Bjorken Ü between ¼¼¼¿¾ and ¼ are measured in · Ô collisions. The data were taken with the H1 detector at HERA between 1994 and 1997, and they correspond to an integrated luminosity(More)
Student response systems (SRS) are devices that allow students to provide categorical and numerical responses to questions embedded within a lecture, and the responses can be tallied and scored in various ways to provide immediate feedback to the students and/or professors. In the fall of 2004 at the University of Missouri – Rolla, questions were(More)
An experimental study was conducted to examine the impact of multiple monitors on user performance and multitasking. Forty-three participants were assigned to two groups - a multi-monitor group and a singlemonitor group - to carry out a series of tasks. Both quantitative and qualitative data were collected and analyzed. Results indicated that those who used(More)
The Analog Pipeline Chip (APC) is a low noise, low power readout chip for silicon micro strip detectors with 128 channels containing an analog pipeline of 32 buffers depth. The chip has been designed for operation at HERA with a power dissipation of 300 − 400 µW per channel and has been used also in several other particle physics experiments. In this paper(More)
A measurement is presented of dijet and 3-jet cross sections in low-Ø diffractive deep-inelastic scattering interactions of the type Ô , where the system is separated by a large rapidity gap from a low-mass baryonic system. Data taken with the H1 detector at HERA, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of ½½¼ ÔÔ ½ , are used to measure hadron level(More)
What actuaries call <i>cash flow testing</i> is a large-scale simulation pitting a company's current policy obligation against future earnings based on interest rates. While life contingency issues associated with contract payoff are a mainstay of the actuarial sciences, modeling the random fluctuations of US Treasury rates is less studied. Furthermore,(More)
The inclusive production of £¦´¾¼½¼µ mesons in deep-inelastic scattering is studied with the H1 detector at HERA. In the kinematic region ½ É ¾ ½¼¼ GeV ¾ and ¼¼¼ Ý ¼ an · Ô cross section for inclusive £¦ meson production of ¼¦¼¾ (stat.) ·½¾½ ½¼¼ (syst.) nb is measured in the visible range Ô Ø £ ½ GeV and £ ½.
