- 1 November 2000
We show that the decision problem corresponding to optimizing random-model N-K fitness functions is NP-complete for K>1, and is polynomial for K=1. Expand
Real-Time Visualization of Joint Cavitation

Cracking sounds emitted from human synovial joints have been attributed historically to the sudden collapse of a cavitation bubble formed as articular surfaces are separated. Unfortunately, bubble… Expand
Palynology, palaeomagnetism and radiometric dating of Flandrian marine and freshwater sediments of Loch Lomond
Loch Lomond in Scotland was part of the sea not only in late Devensian times but also in the middle Flandrian. Deep water cores from the southern basin show sediment with marine plankton and low… Expand
Mechanistic aspects of chiral discrimination on modified cellulose.
Cellulose and cellulose derivatives are biopolymers which are often used as stationary phases for the separation of enantiomers. Describing the mechanism of such separations is a difficult task due… Expand
Rapid synthesis of isoprenoid diphosphates and their isolation in one step using either thin layer or flash chromatography.
A rapid procedure for the preparation of short-chain (C s-C.) isoprenoid diphosphates is described . It is based on the method of Cornforth and Popjak [Methods Enzymol., 15 (1969) 359-390] which… Expand

We measured stable hydrogen isotope ratios in the primary feathers of two subspecies of goldfinches, confiscated by the Police and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA)… Expand
Influence of inorganic mobile phase additives on the retention, efficiency and peak symmetry of protonated basic compounds in reversed-phase liquid chromatography.
Inorganic eluent additives affect the retention of protonated basic analytes in reversed-phase HPLC. This influence is attributed to the disruption of the analyte solvation-desolvation equilibria in… Expand
