Engineering design often involves a very complex set of relationships among a large number of coupled problems. It is this complex coupling that leads to iteration among the various engineering tasks in a large project. The design structure matrix (DSM) is useful in identifying where iteration is necessary. The work transformation matrix model developed in(More)
Three incoming freshmen classes of men provided data in a 5-year longitudinal study of the relationship between childhood victimization experiences and sexually coercive behaviors during adolescence and 4 years of college. A key finding of this study was that men who were physically punished, sexually abused, or who witnessed domestic violence in childhood(More)

This study investigated the psychometric properties of the Mattis Dementia Rating Scale (DRS), including its internal consistency, sensitivity to age and education effects, pattern of change scores, convergent validity and predictive utility. Age and education effects and stability were assessed in a sample of 280 cognitively normal persons over age 55. All(More)
The purpose of this research is to enhance nonparametric regression (NPR) for use in real-time systems by first reducing execution time using advanced data structures and imprecise computations and then developing a methodology for applying NPR. Due to the nature of the enhancements to nonparametric regression, each application of NPR will be specific for(More)
Discovering patterns in strings is a central task in analyzing molecular sequences. One pattern discovery problem is to find a pattern that occurs as a substring in each member of a given set of strings. Additionally, occurrences of this pattern are allowed to have up to some specified number of errors, so the occurrences may not exactly match the pattern.(More)

MODIFICATIONS IN RABBIT SPERM PLASMA MEMBRANES DURING EPIDIDYMAL PASSAGE AND AFTER EJACULATION WERE INVESTIGATED BY USED OF THREE LECTINS: concanavalin A (Con A); Ricinus communis I (RCA(I)); and wheat germ agglutinin (WGA). During sperm passage from caput to cauda epididymis, agglutination by WGA drastically decreased, and agglutination by RCA(I) slightly(More)

0163-6804/98/$10.00 © 1998 IEEE t the heart of the success and power of the worldwide IP Internet are the general-purpose protocols in the TCP/IP protocol suite. Although these protocols, such as TCP and IP, provide a flexible framework for building diverse applications, two limitations can be seen precisely because of their success and generality. First,(More)
