INTRODUCTION A significant proportion of all red cell transfusions are given to patients undergoing elective orthopaedic surgery. Concern over transfusion safety and cost, coupled with evidence showing that restrictive transfusion policies benefit patients, prompted us to audit our blood prescribing practice at Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation(More)
In this article a nonlinear model predictive control (NMPC) scheme for a smart-scale emulsion polymerization process is presented. The control objective is to maintain the product quality specifications and safe operating conditions even when the process is subject to disturbances or the product quality setpoint changes. The total monomer conversion and the(More)
Nephantis serinopa Meyrick is now known to be parasitised by six species ofBrachymeria, viz.,B. nephantidis Gahan,B. lasus Walk.,B. excarinata Gahan,B. (Neobrachymeria) nosatoi Habu,B. euploeae Westw., andB. hime attevae Joseph Of these,B. (N.) nosatoi is the most effective pupal parasite ofN. serinopa in Kerala. Certain aspects of the biology of this(More)
This work aims at the development of computationally efficient schemes under the discrete time multivariable globally linearized control (GLC) framework. Unconstrained and constrained GLC schemes are developed using a discrete quadratic perturbation model. The structure of QPM facilitates analytical treatment of the unconstrained controller synthesis(More)
