Standard Definitions is a work in progress; this is the second major edition. The American Association for Public Opinion Research plans to continue updating it, adding comparable definitions for other modes of data collection and making other refinements. AAPOR also is working with other organizations to further the widespread adoption and utilization of(More)
In this paper, we obtain optimal uniform lower tail estimates for the probability distribution of the properly scaled length of the longest up/right path of the last passage site percolation model considered by Johansson in [12]. The estimates are used to prove a lower tail moderate deviation result for the model. The estimates also imply the convergence of(More)
Professors Peter Feaver, Christopher Gelpi, and Jason Reifler's theory of the determinants of public support for war has received a great deal of attention among academics, journalists, and policymakers. They argue that support for war hinges on initial support for military action and the belief in the success of the war. In this review, we take a critical(More)
Pseudo-nitzschia austrulis Frenguelli is a marine pennatc diatom associated with the production of domoic acid-a neurocxcitatory amino acid linked to illness and mortality of humans and wildlife, Distinguishing P. austrulis from its co-occurring congeners is labor intensive and time consuming because of a requirement for scanning electron microscopy. Hcrc,(More)
Vertebral compression fractures (VCF) due to osteoporotic degeneration and metastatic disease represent an increasingly significant public health problem. Percutaneous vertebroplasty (VP) began as a simple, low-cost procedure that aimed to provide pain relief for patients with VCF. Balloon kyphoplasty (KP) was introduced later, and was presented not only as(More)
of use for submarine communication, communication in mines or geophysics measurements. While this topic is very interesting for radio amateurs, low frequency is of little interest for satellite industry. First of all, signals of low frequency are not suitable to convey large amount of data per second. We can think of transmitting digital (and also analog)(More)
Individual Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) have a great mechanical strength that needs to be transferred into macroscopic fiber assemblies. One approach to improve the mechanical strength of the CNT assemblies is by creating covalent bonding among their individual CNT building blocks. Chemical cross-linking of multiwall CNTs (MWCNTs) within the fiber has(More)
