A new type of compact induction accelerator is under development at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory that promises to increase the average accelerating gradient by at least an order of magnitude over that of existing induction machines. The machine is based on the use of high gradient vacuum insulators, advanced dielectric materials and switches(More)
Networks provide an intuitive framework for visualising and exploring scientific data. The structure of the network can be used to represent relationships within the data, and provides insights that complement more conventional exploratory approaches. The topologies of these networks offer new perspectives on the way complex real-world systems operate. We(More)
Severe head injury is frequently associated with multiple trauma. In the comatose patient, endotracheal intubation and ventilator support are often required, if there is associated dyssynchronous spontaneous effort. The latter is managed with therapeutic (drug) paralysis. An elaborate life-support and monitoring system coupled with controlled paralysis(More)
A unique case of bilateral compressive injury of the femoral nerves is reported in a 19-year-old man. Traumatic femoral nerve neuropathy following operative injury, penetrating injury, anticoagulant therapy with hemorrhage, and stretch injury has been described previously, and the literature concerning this unusual clinical problem is reviewed. Bilateral(More)
