Rough sets have been incorporated into various models and applications as a mechanism for the management of uncertainty. In this paper we apply rough set techniques to enhance an automated natural language application involving story generation. We discuss the various ways in which these uncertainty techniques improve on the original model and explain how(More)
In order to apply numerical methods to analyse the load bearing behaviour and failure characteristics of timber structures, suitable and realistic numerical descriptions of the mechanical properties of the material wood are needed. The present work investigates selected aspects of the mechanics of wood with respect to inhomogeneities and the appropriate(More)
Twelve patients with Paget's disease of bone were treated with synthetic human calcitonin for seven to 26 months (mean 15.3 months). This group included six patients who had previous therapy. Eleven of the 12 patients experienced relief of the symptoms associated with Paget's disease. The initial therapy of synthetic human calcitonin 0.5-1.0 mg(More)
