The inclusive semileptonic branching ratio is often employed to normalize other inclusive B decays. Using recent determinations of the non-perturbative parameters of the Operator Product Expansion we compute the normalization factor for the branching ratio of B → X s γ and find a few percent enhancement with respect to previous determinations.
Percutaneous mitral valve repair (PMVR) using the MitraClip System is feasible and entails clinical improvement even in patients with high surgical risk and severe functional mitral regurgitation (MR). The aim of this study was to assess survival rates and clinical outcome of patients with severe, functional MR treated with optimal medical therapy (OMT)(More)

In this paper we will analyze the Fantappì e group and its properties in connection with Cantorian space-time. Our attention will be focused on the possibility of extending special relativity. The cosmological consequences of such extension appear relevant , since thanks to the Fantappì e group , the model of the Big Bang and that of stationary state become(More)
Using standard analysis only, we present an extension • R of the real field containing nilpotent infinitesimals. On the one hand we want to present a very simple setting to formalize infinitesimal methods in Differential Geometry, Analysis and Physics. On the other hand we want to show that these infinitesimals may be also useful in infinite dimensional(More)
We define a general notion of set of indices which, using concepts from pre-ordered sets theory, permits to unify the presentation of several Colombeau-type algebras of nonlinear generalized functions. In every set of indices it is possible to generalize Landau's notion of big-O such that its usual properties continue to hold. Using this generalized notion(More)
