Throughout the LHC project fieldbuses will be required to connect and control equipment and devices of various types. It will be necessary to integrate both industrial equipment and custom designed devices. In order to increase efficiency of resources a CERN working group recommends restricting the choice of fieldbuses, to be used in the years to come at(More)
Data from high-energy physics (HEP) experiments are collected with significant financial and human effort and are mostly unique. An inter-experimental study group on HEP data preservation and long-term analysis was convened as a panel of the International Committee for Future Accelerators (ICFA). The group was formed by large collider-based experiments and(More)
BACKGROUND African trypanosomiasis is a fatal disease caused by protozoan parasites of the species Trypanosoma brucei. The disease has reached epidemic dimensions in various countries of central Africa. Treatment of the second stage is long and complicated, and is hampered by severe adverse reactions to the first-line drug, melarsoprol. Despite these(More)
ROOT is an object-oriented C++ framework conceived in the high-energy physics (HEP) community, designed for storing and analyzing petabytes of data in an efficient way. Any instance of a C++ class can be stored into a ROOT file in a machine-independent compressed binary format. In ROOT the TTree object container is optimized for statistical data analysis(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Khaya species, endemic to Africa and Madagascar, continues to be valuable in indigenous traditional medicine. Their bitter tasting barks are decocted to treat fevers, several febrile conditions, microbial infections and worm infestations. In the Budongo rain forest of Western Uganda, non-human primates, especially chimpanzees(More)
Immunoreactive insulin-like growth factors I and II (IGF-I, IGF-II) were sought in the endocrine pancreas of representative birds, reptiles, and amphibia using antisera specific for mammalian IGF-I and IGF-II and the classical islet hormones insulin (INS), glucagon (GLUC), somatostatin (SOM), and pancreatic polypeptide (PP) in double immunofluorescence.(More)
In this talk we will review the major additions and improvements made to the ROOT system in the last 18 months and present our plans for future developments. The additions and improvements range from modifications to the I/O subsystem to allow users to save and restore objects of classes that have not been instrumented by special ROOT macros, to the(More)
Measurements of cross sections of inelastic and diffractive processes in proton–proton collisions at LHC energies were carried out with the ALICE detector. The fractions of diffractive processes in inelastic collisions were determined from a study of gaps in charged particle pseudora-pidity distributions: for single diffraction (diffractive mass
Differential cross sections of charged particles in inelastic pp collisions as a function of p T have been measured at √ s = 0.9, 2.76 and 7 TeV at the LHC. The p T spectra are compared to NLO-pQCD calculations. Though the differential cross section for an individual √ s cannot be described by NLO-pQCD, the relative increase of cross section with √ s is in(More)
