This paper describes PRIMA, an algorithm for generating provably passive reduced order N-port models for RLC interconnect circuits. It is demonstrated that, in addition to requiring macromodel stability, macromodel passivity is needed to guarantee the overall circuit stability once the active and passive driver/load models are connected. PRIMA extends the(More)
This study investigated whether there are adverse effects due to microwave exposure emitted by cellular phones in male rats. Eighteen Wistar Albino rats were separated into three groups, a sham group and two experimental groups. The rats were confined in Plexiglas cages and cellular phones were placed 0.5 cm under the cages. In the first experimental group,(More)
The genotoxic effects of the fungicide afugan were analysed by measuring chromosomal aberrations (CAs), sister chromatid exchange (SCE) and micronuclei (MN) in cultured human peripheral lymphocytes. Concentrations of 2.5, 5, 10 and 20 microg/ml of afugan were used during 24 and 48 h. Afugan significantly increased the frequency of CAs at 5, 10 and 20(More)
The large-scale process and environmental variations for today's nanoscale ICs are requiring statistical approaches for timing analysis and optimization. Significant research has been recently focused on developing new statistical timing analysis algorithms, but often without consideration for how one should interpret the statistical timing results for(More)
The Elmore delay is the metric of choice for performancedriven design applications due to its simple, explicit form and ease with which sensitivity information can be calculated. However, for deep submicron technologies, the accuracy of the Elmore delay is insufficient. In this paper, we formulate a delay model using a provably stable two pole waveform(More)
BACKGROUND In countries like Turkey where smoking is highly prevalent, children's exposure to tobacco smoke is an important public health problem. The goals of this study were to determine the self-reported environmental tobacco smoke exposure status of primary school students in grades 3 to 5, to verify self-reported exposure levels with data provided from(More)
<italic>Krylov space methods initiated a new era for RLC circuit model order reduction. Although theoretically well-founded, these algorithms can fail to produce useful results for some types of circuits. In particular, controlling accuracy and ensuring passivity are required to fully utilize these algorithms in practice. In this paper we propose a(More)
Beauvericin, a naturally occurring contaminants of food and feeds, has been implicated in several mycotoxicoses; however, there is little information on its genotoxicity. Therefore, the genotoxic and cytotoxic effects of beauvericin in in vitro cultures of human lymphocytes were investigated with chromosome aberrations (CAs), sister-chromatid exchanges(More)
The ventral anterior nucleus of the thalamus (VATh) gathers motor information from the internal segment of the globus pallidus (GPi) and substantia nigra pars reticulata (SNpr) of the basal ganglia and projects directly to motor areas of cortex. GPi/SNpr send their tonically active gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)ergic outputs to VATh. The abnormal firing(More)
