BABAR, the detector for the SLAC PEP-II asymmetric eþe B Factory operating at the Uð4SÞ resonance, was designed to allow comprehensive studies of CP-violation in B-meson decays. Charged particle tracks are measured in a multi-layer silicon vertex tracker surrounded by a cylindrical wire drift chamber. Electromagnetic showers from electrons and photons are(More)
Three opioid receptor types have recently been cloned that correspond to the pharmacologically defined mu, delta and kappa 1 receptors. In situ hybridization studies suggest that the opioid receptor mRNAs that encode these receptors have distinct distributions in the central nervous system that correlate well with their known functions. In the present study(More)
The mu, delta, and kappa opioid receptors are the three main types of opioid receptors found in the central nervous system (CNS) and periphery. These receptors and the peptides with which they interact are important in a number of physiological functions, including analgesia, respiration, and hormonal regulation. This study examines the expression of mu,(More)
To further understand the functions of the orexin/hypocretin system, we examined the expression and regulation of the orexin/hypocretin receptor (OX1R and OX2R) mRNA in the brain by using quantitative in situ hybridization. Expression of OX1R and OX2R mRNA exhibited distinct distribution patterns. Within the hypothalamus, expression for the OX1R mRNA was(More)
Corticosteroids have been implicated in hippocampal atrophy in patients with severe psychiatric disorders, but little is known about receptor expression for corticosteroids in human or nonhuman primate brain. Both the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) and mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) were surveyed in this study of squirrel monkey brain using in situ(More)
A measurement of the Higgs boson mass is presented based on the combined data samples of the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the CERN LHC in the H→γγ and H→ZZ→4ℓ decay channels. The results are obtained from a simultaneous fit to the reconstructed invariant mass peaks in the two channels and for the two experiments. The measured masses from the individual(More)

A search is presented for direct top squark pair production in final states with one isolated electron or muon, jets, and missing transverse momentum in proton-proton collisions at sqrt[s] = 7 TeV. The measurement is based on 4.7 fb(-1) of data collected with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. Each top squark is assumed to decay to a top quark and the lightest(More)
The inclusive single and double differential cross-sections for neutral and charged current processes with four-momentum transfer squared Q2 between 150 and 30 000 GeV2 and with Bjorken x between 0:0032 and 0:65 are measured in e+p collisions. The data were taken with the H1 detector at HERA between 1994 and 1997, and they correspond to an integrated(More)
Abstract. The energy of the Francfort–Marigo model of brittle fracture can be approximated, in the sense of Γ-convergence, by the Ambrosio–Tortorelli functional. In this work we formulate and analyze two adaptive finite element algorithms for the computation of its (local) minimizers. For each algorithm we combine a Newton-type method with residual-driven(More)
