The utility of the Test of Memory Malingering (TOMM) with mentally retarded forensic patients was assessed. Twenty-one adjudicated forensic inpatients, who had been diagnosed with mental retardation, were administered the TOMM. The majority of these patients also suffered from an Axis I mental disorder. The participants attained a mean score of 48.7 on(More)
Quantum Computing (QC) research has gained a lot of momentum recently due to several theoretical analyses that indicate that QC is significantly more efficient at solving certain classes of problems than classical computing. While experimental validation will ultimately be required, the primitive nature of current QC hardware leaves practical testing(More)
This study examined the relationship between the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test-Revised (PPVT-R) and Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised (WAIS-R) in 40 adult psychiatric inpatients. The tests were administered to the patients in counterbalanced order as part of their overall psychological evaluation. Mean scaled scores were obtained for both tests.(More)
In this paper the effect of surface tension is considered on two two-dimensional water-wave problems involving pairs of immersed bodies. Both models, having fluid of infinite depth, support localized oscillations, or trapped modes, when capillary effects are excluded. The first pair of bodies is surface-piercing whereas the second pair is fully submerged.(More)

An attempt was made to evaluate the utility of the Rey Memory Test (Rey, 1964) to assess malingering in criminal defendants referred for inpatient forensic evaluation. The performance of 14 diagnosed malingerers was compared to a control group of 14 forensic inpatients who had been acquitted by reason of insanity. Malingerers performed significantly less(More)
