Wild mullet (Mugil cephalus) with white cysts on their scales were obtained from Yeosu on the south coast of Korea in 2009. Cyst-like plasmodia consisted of a large number of mature myxosporean spores and numerous sporogonic stages. Spores were oval-shaped in their front view, tapering anteriorly to a blunt apex, and lenticular in their lateral view. They… (More)
A disposable preoxidation technique that dramatically improves the detection and identification of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) by a colorimetric sensor array is reported. Passing a vapor stream through a tube packed with chromic acid on silica immediately before the colorimetric sensor array substantially increases the sensitivity to less-reactive… (More)
A linear (1 × 36) colorimetric sensor array has been integrated with a pre-oxidation technique for detection and identification of a variety of fuels and post-combustion residues. The pre-oxidation method permits the conversion of fuel vapor into more detectable species and therefore greatly enhances the sensitivity of the sensor array. The pre-oxidation… (More)
The electric power load forecasting is critical for stable electric power system supply. In this paper, a seasonal ARIMA model was used to effectively forecast power load data characterized using periodicity. A numerical example reveals that the seasonal ARIMA model effectively forecast periodic power load.
The node selection for the migration of a mobile agent depends on the content of the referenced metadata in the naming space. The reliability of the migrated information is determined by using the operation, cooperation, and metadata of individual agent in multi-agent system. In this paper, we propose the naming service of the multi-agent that supports more… (More)
